Hormones play an integral role in your overall health. They are the body’s chemical messengers, that travel around your bloodstream telling tissues and organs what to do, including where your hair grows.
All women have body hair, but it may be more pronounced in some than in others and include growth on the face. The most common hormonal imbalance in women is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). This health condition affects a woman’s hormone and causes them to produce unusually more male hormones.
She was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) when she was 11. This condition causes hormonal imbalances in the body, which has resulted in hair growing out of her face, chest and arms.
Kaur was bullied throughout her childhood because of the condition and spent years trying to hide it by undergoing painful waxes up to three times a week.
The eventual realisation that she didn’t have any control over what her body naturally did was what made her decide to keep and rock her beard.
In 2016, she launched her modelling career, walking the runway with her full beard, strutting down the catwalk for jewelry designer Marianna Harutunian at the London Fashion Week.
Despite having a full beard from the effects of PCOS, Harnaam has embraced her unique look and is now a bonafide Instagram personality and model with over 83,000 followers.
She usually adorns herself with lipstick, a bright turban, beautiful clothing and jewelry. She is an example of positivity and variance in beauty in a world that so often expects women to look, weigh, and act in a certain way.
