This Bearded Bride Will Challenge How You Think About Beauty

Harnaam Kaur's stunning flower beard shouldn't be missed.

Kaur has Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, an endocrine system disorder that can cause major hormonal imbalances.

Having so much facial hair at such a young age was rough.

The Slough, U.K.-based Kaur decided to embrace her beard. “I have now fallen in love with the elements on my body that people may call ‘flaws.’”

Kaur's attitude and beauty impressed British photographer Louisa Coulthurst.

Coulthurst says she was inspired by Kaur's facial hair.

"I had always been intrigued by the thought of floral beards and a thought came to me of wouldn’t it be cool to have a floral beard on a woman," she said. "I emailed Harnaam and she was excited and wanted to get involved.”

The results are pretty stunning.

Kaur wants to remind people not to be too hard on themselves. “We are all imperfectly perfect," she says.

Her advice to others? "Love yourself, YOU are the only YOU that YOU have.”

"I wanted to show society that beauty isn’t just about looking a certain way. We are all so different, and we should all celebrate our individuality," said Kaur.

"I used to keep my beard for religious reasons, but now I keep my hair to show the world a different, confident, diverse, and strong image of a woman."
