Bearded woman says facial hair makes her feel sexy
German-born Mariam says she feels more confident now that she's stopped trying to hide her facial hair. After failed electrolysis attempts and years of tweezing, the 49-year-old mom embraced the growing goatee and joined the circus.
A German woman who struggled with facial hair for nearly two decades said she finally feels sexy, now that shes ditched the clippers and let her beard grow.
I feel more confident and I know myself better now than when I was younger, the 49-year-old mom, identified only as Mariam, told the British talk show, This Morning.
Mariam explained to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield she began growing facial hair 28 years ago, after the birth of her son.
Extra hormones produced during pregnancy can trigger hair growth.
She tried electrolysis three times, but the hair always grew back.
After years of using tweezers to disguise the growing goatee, Mariam gave up in August 2008.
It was more curiosity, like what will happen with me if I let it grow, she said. Like how it will make me feel.
Now Mariam only trims her beard for maintenance. Shes the Bearded Lady in a traveling circus and writes about her experiences on a blog.
Despite some nasty comments and criticism even Mariams own mother questioned her decision to keep the beard she discovered a newfound confidence.
After being single for a decade, shes also looking for love.
I think Im more ready to have a relationship, Mariam said.

Oh! Mercy! I think I’m blinded for life!
Oh, come ON — there’s got to be some treatment that would take care of that.
People are just getting weirder every day.
There are laser treatments that supposedly work. There’s also waxing that works in a variety of places. NO WAY would I let that happen to me if I had that problem.
She may feel sexy but I can’t imagine who would agree with her. Maybe Chaz Bono?
Ich bin ein Beardtrimmer
Is that a photo of one of those Japanese Kabuki dancers?
Sexey?? To who?
Oh...New York Daily News writing about a characteristic of its City. Something about the more recent influx from Europe.
OMG she better not go into the woods at night and howl...
I can't get that dang TV commercial outta my head after seeing this...
"I believe dare are some squatch in these woods"
Dood. How did you get a pic of Chris Christie without his shirt??
Damn... She looks like she could pass for any of the uber-liberal “womyn” who permeate the democrat party.
I think you intended to write: “to whom?””
There are some guys who go out looking for “squach”.
Sounds disgusting, though.
