When Rose Geil, 39, from Oregon, was only 13 years old she noticed facial hair started growing on her face. She was desperate to hide it, that’s when all the shaving began. She did it for 20 long years.
However, eight months ago Rose felt that it had become “emotionally draining” for her. So she put her razors away accepting her masculine side and is now proud of her beard and chest hair. Rose said: “Growing my beard has made me more confident. I feel pretty with my beard, and I never felt pretty before. It feels amazing being me.”
