Stage 1: Pre-adolescent
Vellus hair only and hair is similar to development over anterior abdominal wall (ie. no pubic hair).
There is sparse growth of long, slightly pigmented, downy hair or only slightly curled hair, appearing along labia.
Hair is darker, coarser, more curled, and spreads to the pubic junction.
Adult-type hair; area covered is less than that in most adults; there is no spread to the medial surface of thighs.
Stage 5: Adult
Adult-type hair with increased spread to medial surface of thighs; distribution is as an inverse triangle.
