Bearded Lady Who Hid Behind A Niqab Embraces Her Facial Hair Loud And Proud

A woman who began sprouting thick facial hair after the birth of her child says she no longer wants to hide away and is finally embracing her beard.

Indonesian Agustina Dorman, 38, first noticed the stubble growth when she was 25, days after the birth of her first child.

Ever since she has hidden her face under a hijab whenever outside in Penaga village, Indonesia.

Agustina – who also sports a mild moustache and chest hair – says that whenever she attempted to cut or shave the beard she experienced unbearable pain.

After several attempts to rid herself of the goatee, she was forced to let it grow.

And scared that her children – aged 19 and three – would be bullied for their mother’s appearance, Agustina hid away under the hijab.

Among Indonesia’s large Muslim population, Agustina could move about without attracting unwanted attention.

But she says her eldest child began to receive taunts from others who found out about their mother’s unusual condition.

It led the brave mum-of-two to confront her children’s tormentors by unveiling herself and freely walking around their village for the first time this week.

She hopes that through education about her condition, people will become accepting of her appearance.

Earlier this year a German bearded lady called Mariam appeared on Daytime TV in the UK to reveal she even felt sexy with her stubble. (Barcroft Media  |  By Barcroft )
