People often speak of the importance of embracing natural beauty, but when some decide to do that for real, they are often judged and called names.
Chances are you have already heard of Edina Jaganjac, a woman from Denmark who has decided to stop shaving her unibrow and her mustache. Her appearance, which many find uncommon for a woman, caused quite a stir on the social media after she posted photos of herself and her natural look online.
The reason behind this decision is that Edina became wary of the world’s expectations on females, especially when it comes to removing their facial hair. Also, she realized that man need much less time to get ready as they spend insignificant amount of time caring for their body hair and how thick or overgrown it is.
She admits that the choices she has made with her body and facial hair are not for anyone but herself, contrary to what the media may believe.
Speaking to Tyla, this 31-year-old instructor says she does some trolling from teens online and comments in the street from men. Some tell her to ‘pluck that’ and others say her unibrow resembles a ‘third head.’
Edina, however, doesn’t let these mean comments affect the way she feels about herself, and that’s very confident.
“I’ve chosen to concentrate on the tasks and objectives that I have to do and less on how I come across while doing them and whether people like me or not, because I probably won’t see them again, and if I do, I still don’t care,” she said.
According to her, her new looks helps her get rid of judgmental people and ‘weed out’ any conservative potential partners.
“I don’t care what people think. I don’t want it to become this big thing — no pun intended — but it’s a personal choice for everyone to make themselves, and I wish that people wouldn’t care no matter how a woman chooses to look,” she shared.
“Before I let my unibrow grow out, I did feel like there were extremely limited options to how women were supposed to look.
“If a man doesn’t shave and doesn’t pluck his eyebrows, no one notices or comments and it’s nothing out of the ordinary.
“Just like many other women, I have learned to police myself. For instance, I used to not feel comfortable going outside unless my eyebrows were the accepted small size, and I wouldn’t go to the gym unless my legs were clean shaven.”
What do you think of this woman’s stance on her body and facial hair?
