    Step aside “No Shave November,” because the ladies are making room for #JanuHairy.

    That’s right! Laura Jackson, a student in Britain, debuted the #JanuHairy movement with this post.

    She said she grew out her body hair for a performance as part of her drama degree in May, and started to like her natural hair, as well as the lack of uncomfortable shaving episodes.

    So the goal is for women to grow out their body hair for the entire month of January to support Body Gossip’s education program.

    It’s a charity that empowers every body to be the best version of themselves and “rock their own brand of gorgeous.”

    Women are taking this as an opportunity to accept themselves for exactly who they are.

    And totally rolling with it.

    They want to prove that a woman can be sexy with or without body hair.

    This project also wants to challenge social norms of what a woman is expected to do.

    Laura explained, “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.”
