Chest hair was categorized into 15 unique patterns, spanning four separate areas of the chest, in , based on a study of 1, men ages 17 to Sternal, infraclavicular below the collarbone , pectoral, and circumareolar areola hair make up the four areas where chest hair grows, with a majority of it growing on the pecs and sternum.
