Move Over No Shave November And Make Room For “Januhairy”

Move Over No Shave November And Make Room For “Januhairy”, a new campaign that is encouraging women to grow out their body hair.  This should be a fun month for all of the guys seeing their ladies growing out all of the parts of their body that the men are so used to us shaving.

Januhairy was created by a student at the University of Exeter named Laura Jackson with the hopes that women will embrace their hair and learn to love it.  You can see more about her on her Instagram account @janu_hairy.

Here is what I found on her Instagram where she explains her intentions for the campaign:

“I thought I would write a little about my experiences and how Januhairy came about… I grew out my body hair for a performance as part of my drama degree in May 2018. There had been some parts that were challenging for me, and others that really opened my eyes to the taboo of body hair on a woman. After a few weeks of getting used to it, I started to like my natural hair. I also started to like the lack of uncomfortable episodes of shaving. Though I felt liberated and more confident in myself, some people around me didn’t understand why I didn’t shave/didn’t agree with it. I realised that there is still so much more for us to do to be able to accept one another fully and truly. Then I thought of Januhairy and thought I would try it out. It’s a start at least . . .

I have had a lot of support from my friends and family! Even though I had to explain why I was doing it to a lot of them which was surprising, and again, the reason why this is important to do! When I first started growing my body hair my mum asked me “Is it you just being lazy or are you trying to prove a point?” . . . why should we be called lazy if we don’t want to shave? And why do we have to be proving a point? After talking to her about it and helping her understand, she saw how weird it was that she asked those questions. If we do something/see the same things, over and over again it becomes normal. She is now going to join in with Januhairy and grow out her own body hair which is a big challenge for her as well as many women who are getting involved. Of course a good challenge! This isn’t an angry campaign for people who don’t see how normal body hair is, but more an empowering project for everyone to understand more about their views on themselves and others. Lets get hairy”.
