beard hairs = whiskers (They include moustache "hairs".)
The five o´clock shadow is "the dark colour on a man´s chin where the beard/whiskers have grown a little bit, during the day" as Longman points out, the stubs that sometimes go unseen for many, but maybe not by your boss in places that deal with the public in general.
No mercy today, PPaulo!
If you want your hair to grow longer, you can say "I'm letting my hair grow" or "I'm letting my hair grow out." You can use "whiskers", "beard", or "moustache" in place of hair if you are talking about your face. Yes, women are said to have moustaches. Apparently, in the UK they are called "ronnies". (Don't trust my spelling. I don't.)
