After 20 years of trying to pluck, tweeze, laser and wax the facial hair that appeared after the birth of her son, 49-year-old Mariam finally decided to stop trying to hide her whiskers and let them grow. While unemployed and living alone, she decided to experiment with growing her beard.
“When I decided to let it grow it didn’t feel brave, it was more like a curiosity. I wanted to see what would happen to me. There was a big fear that everyone would turn away and nobody would talk to me anymore,” the bearded lady said during a recent appearance on the UK’s “This Morning.” Keep reading »
