Shave and body brand, Billie has a history of challenging outdated beauty standards when it comes to female body hair. For starters, it was the first brand to ever put actual body hair in a women's shaving ad. Since then, Billie has launched several groundbreaking campaigns, including Project Body Hair and Red, White, and You Do You, to help normalize hair as a natural, beautiful part of a woman's body.
Now, Billie is the first women's brand to participate in Movember, a charitable movement that challenges people to grow a mustache and raise money for prostate cancer awareness.
In addition to creating its own ad campaign that encourages women to grow their facial hair, Billie has also vowed to match 100 percent of contributions to its Team Billie Movember campaign up to $50,000, according to a press release sent via email. 'Stache or no 'stache, you can donate here to help Movember fund groundbreaking work in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.
Billie's new campaign, which you can join today, features women of all shapes, sizes, and races flaunting their facial hair, reminding the world that women have mustaches, too.
In a video promoting Billie's new initiative, the brand draws attention to the fact that many women go through a lot to hide their upper-lip hair, including waxing, plucking, shaving, and laser hair removal. And while body hair of any kind is a personal choice, the truth is, every woman has some form of a 'stacheand it's about time that wasn't such a huge secret.

"Of all the places women grow hair, the upper lip seems to be the one most rarely talked about and the most taboo," Georgina Gooley, co-founder of Billie, said in a statement. "We're excited to make it the hero of our latest campaign and put our hair to good use in the name of a good cause." (Related: Why Not Shaving My Legs In High School Helped Me Love My Body Now)
From pro hairstylist, Caitlin Ford's viral rainbow-colored armpit hair to Halsey's unshaved pits on the cover of Rolling Stone, visible body hair has been a hot topic lately. While some people have applauded these women for owning their unshaved looks, plenty of others continue to express their shock and even anger at the sight of any body hair on a person who doesn't identify as a man.
Of course, that's exactly why brands like Billie are dedicated to disrupting the narrative around female body hair: to remind people that shavingor hair removal of any kindshould be a choice, not an expectation.
Breast and nipple hair normalization next.
For the trans-people.
Leftists ruin everything.

I don’t care for hirsute women, and I am keenly aware of prostate cancer, so, no thanks.
I’ll take a chance without looking and pronounce “guilty”.
Are there any sane young women left in America?
These people can kiss my derrière.
They are mentally ill.
I really think a lot of this is aimed at population control.
If women become more obnoxious and more hairy, men will not want to mate with them
And if men become more beta and effeminate, women will not want to mate with them.
Save the earth! make men and women dislike each other!!
The Unshorn Sisters of the Apocalypse are upon us!

probably, but they are getting harder and harder to find, and even when you think you’ve found one, they sometimes hide their insanity until after they get a ring on their finger- not all of course- but many-
Dating in this day and age aint what it used to be- it’s like walking across a thin crusted over lava field, trying to find that one area where you can rest and not fall through and get scorched
Young women are told they can have it all. Therefore, all men are inadequate in some way. Now these women are told that making themselves unattractive is “normal”.
And these young women complain they can’t find a man.
It's interesting to see older videos on YouTube. It used to be common for ordinary women to make some effort to be attractive. Nowadays, a significant number of women make an effort to make themselves very ugly. This is not normal. Our culture is a little crazy.
Like Rush said, Feminism was created so as to give unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.
You got soy/pajama boy millenial males who are told women like men with no body hair, so the shave their whole bodies...

You got white males in commercials shown being so damn ignorant, stupid and gullible...You got women in commercials being the movers and shakers...
Where the hell are we going???????????????
It’s natural. I’ll give them that.
But it sure ain’t beautiful.
Grow a bush and you’re out on your tush.
