Each person is unique. But society expects each of us to fit the standards. They say that it helps a person to become happy and successful. If you are a man, you should be tall and muscular, if you are a woman – be slim with perfectly proportional face. But now more and more people are fighting against these stereotypes and are proud of themselves the way the nature created them.

These women believe that their skin doesn’t have to be as smooth as the dolphin’s. If nature has given them a beard, then they should make the best of it.

The recent worldwide campaign “We Can Face It” is aiming at overcoming the negative attitude towards the female facial hair. There are different reasons why it appears. The main ones are health condition and genes. Also, facial and body hair appears in some women during pregnancy due to the growth hormones.

Now, increasingly more women prefer to refrain from hair removal. 27-year-old Harnaam Kaur - one of the first in the modern society to stop being self-conscious of her beard. Her hair began to grow on her face, arms and chest when she was 11. This was due to the polycystic ovary syndrome, which causes excessive testosterone production in women.
