Last winter I stopped shaving my legs, a very freeing move that left me a lot less pruney after my showers. still left me a little self-conscious . Yep, the hairs would be visible whenever I happened to cuff up bottoms of my jeans, sometimes leading me to pull up my socks or kept my ankles crossed, but I still felt no motivation to shave until it was time to whip out the short shorts in the springtime. Nevertheless, while I stopped shaving my legs, I didn’t neglect hair removal elsewhere, namely my face.
Yes, I have facial hair…just like every other girl on the planet.
We associate facial hair and excess body hair as a male trait and we’ve been socialized to view hair growing anywhere aside from our head as unsightly and unfeminine. But…we know for damn sure that ladies get hairy as hell, too. Of course, some of us have coarser hair than others and some of us have darker hair than others, but if you feel like the only girl who has to deal with a few hairs on your chin, you’re definitely not. Seirously, you’re not. Check out these seven weird places that tons of girls grow hair because it’s time to stop feeling like a freak!
ChinAs someone who has a few hairs sprouting out of my chin, I agree that it's definitely annoying. But it's a lot more normal than you might think, especially for those of you with dark, course hair. Honestly, nobody is going to notice that random hair under your chin unless they are getting way up in your grill. Photo source: My So-Called Life
StomachWho doesn't have a happy trail? We all have a happy trail that leads straight to our pubes unless we decide to shave it away, which many girls do. Yeah, girls shaving their stomachs. It happens, especially in the summertime. You're not a werewolf because of that! Photo source: Pinterest
Upper LipGirls get mustaches. I repeat, girls get mustaches. Sure, not necessarily thick ones but we all get 'em...even if we don't like to talk about it. They're harder to see on girls with light hair and light skin but trust they're there...lurkin'. Photo source: Youtube
KnucklesOkay, so not every girl grows hair on their knuckles. In fact, it's totally up to genetics! As a girl who does have hair on my knuckles, however, I can tell you that it is silly to be self-conscious about it. It's hardly noticeable and it's not like you're going to go and shave your knuckles now. I mean, you might but...don't do that. Photo source: Ginger Snaps 2
ChestYou might not have chest hair like a 70s stud muffin, but it's totally normal to have hair sprouting out of your nipples and across your chest. Yes, hairy nips, they're normal. Pluck em if you want but eh... Photo source: Pinterest
ButtWomen don't go through puberty without hair coming out of their butt, okay? We aren't all hairless porn stars! That's why Brazilian waxes exist. So I repeat, there's hair...there's hair up your butt...that's normal. Don't feel like a freak because of it and anybody who does make you feel like one sucks and needs to worry about their own butt hair, got it? Photo source: My Mad Fat Diary
NeckCongrats, you have a neck beard! No but really, a few stray hairs on your neck is nothing to be alarmed about. Honestly, you probably don't notice it most of the time. They're sneaky little guys, aren't they? Photo source: Shutterstock
