Woman feels free by letting her beard grow after giving up years of shaving

A 26-year-old woman, who was bullied throughout her teen years finally feels ‘free’ after ditching the razor and embracing her natural beauty by letting her facial hair grow.

Morgan Coleman started to notice hair on her cheeks, chin and neck when she was 11 and spent her childhood and teen years trying to hide the hair.

She says she was hounded by cruel people who would call her ugly, a freak, a man, and say she was transgender.

The bullying damaged her self-confidence so much that Morgan tried everything she could to remove the hair including – permanently removal through electrolysis, which all failed.

Morgan says that doctors dismissed her concerns until she started to experience menstrual issues and headed to her GP seeking help in 2019.

An ultrasound found a cyst on her ovaries.

Morgan was finally diagnosed with hirsutism (excessive hair growth) and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome in January 2021.

Now, the 26-year-old had decided to embrace her natural self after more than 15 years of hiding.

Morgan said: "It's time to embrace my natural face and, surprisingly, people aren’t as judgmental as you’d think!

"I do struggle with self-confidence – after many years of bullying, it does have an impact on your self-confidence, but I am definitely feeling much more confident since I’ve decided to embrace my natural face.

"I am really at peace with it now. It’s difficult to explain, but I feel free – I wake up and that’s now the last thing I think about, it’s wonderful!

"It was horrible and isolating. Both kids and young adults were very cruel. I was bullied severely for many years. I don’t have many fond memories from my school years.”

In April 2022, Morgan decided to embrace her facial hair after she found herself stuck in a hospital for six days after catching Covid-19 on holiday, saying it gave her time to reflect.

Morgan said: "I decided it was time to prioritise my physical and mental health and part of doing that for me was to accept the things I can not change. We are all unique. There is nothing wrong with looking different."

Since ditching the razors two months ago, Morgan has no regrets over her decision and is loving her new confidence with her facial hair no longer hidden.

She says she has experienced 'disgusted looks' from strangers but feels freer since embracing her natural face and has no plans to return to remove the hair.

Morgan said: "I enjoy spreading awareness where possible – I am a believer of creating acceptance and normalising facial hair on women is best done by spreading awareness, answering questions and sharing information. PCOS is such a common syndrome.

"I am really at peace with it now. It’s difficult to explain, but I feel free – I wake up and that’s now the last thing I think about, it’s wonderful!"
