Orks do not have natural hair, but they use a special kind of Squig to fill the purpose (quite literally called a Hair Squig). These tiny parastic creatures can be worn on the head or face, in which case they look just like normal hair or beards.

I get the feeling he is joking... but it sounds plausable (especially for GW)

Id say yes... If they can have hair on their scalp, id say they can have it on their chins...

We're not joking, orks are naturally hairless, they need hair squigs to get hair.

Why is that? They actually went into great detail on Ork biology and the ecosystem they support. Most of it is in the source material for GorkaMorka, though.

Becasue why would a race go to so much trouble to have hair when it is not naturally accuring to them? In ork mindset, Orks are perfect and so why would they want to make themselves more like he enemies who are weaker then themselves???

Perhaps the orks thought that they invented it, since squigs are orkoids, and the other races stole the idea?
