Before we see the difference between the hair in the genital  areas to that of the hair in other visible areas of the body, one should  know that three main types of hair grow on all human beings.

First is the Lanugo hair, the hair grown on fetus, which are lost once the baby is born.

Second  is the Vellus hair, the thin, short, and light hair, which covers  almost the complete human body except for some areas like the back of  the ears, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, etc.

The third is  the Terminal hair or the Androgenic hair, long and thicker hair, which  during puberty replaces vellus hair in certain areas of the body like  arms, armpits, legs, pubic, facial hair, etc.

The length, color, and thickness of terminal hair vary from person to person depending on the hair growth rate and genes.
