In collaboration with Allure, today we’re launching the first of a new video series that dispels some of our culture’s most insidious beauty myths that keep us from feeling at peace within our skin and distract us from embracing our true selves. The first myth that we’re confronting is that of women and their body hair.
We are honored to share with you the journeys of Alexandra Marzella, Ayqa Khan, and Monica Hernandez, as they defy the cultural norms that a woman is only beautiful if she has soft, porcelain, baby skin. Each one of these three badass women have battled external pressure to rid themselves of their body hair and are now setting themselves free, tuning into their own internal voice to determine how the hair on their body should be.
No woman should feel shame for something so natural as growing body hair-- not by corporations, boys, friends, family members, or society by large. What a woman wants to do with her body is her choice and her choice alone. And these three are in their power, rocking the beauty of liberation.
