This is the story 23-year-old Bearded Woman
This is the story 23-year-old Bearded Woman with condition causing excessive hair growth on face and chest.
A 23-year-old woman with a condition causing excessive hair development has revealed that growing a beard makes her feel more feminine.
Harnaam Kaur living in Slough, Berkshire in the UK, suffers from a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome which causes excessive growth of hair.
A beard first started to appear on her face aged just 11. The hair quickly spread to her chest and arms, and the condition made her the victim of taunts at school and on the street. She even received death threats from strangers over the internet.
But Miss Kaur has now decided to stop cutting her hair after being baptised as a Sikh – a religion in which cutting body hair is forbidden.
Kaur, of Slough, Berkshire, said: “I would never ever go back now and remove my facial hair because it’s the way God made me and I’m happy with the way I am.
“I feel more feminine, more sexy and I think I look it too.
“I’ve learned to love myself for who I am nothing can shake me now.”
