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.

It didn’t display. Methinks I just dodged a bullet.
I'm sexy and I know it!
There is laser hair removal and electrolysis. Both are highly effective. I think more than her hormones changed after the birth of the kid. She is amazingly disgusting-looking with the facial hair. Maybe she uses it as birth control to avoid having any more children.
o/~ I’m. Too sexy for this beard. Too sexy for this beard. So sexy that it’s weird... o/~
I’ve had good and bad experiences at York Barber shop. Shave was OK.
