Woman With Unibrow Says People Have Verbally Abused Her In The Street For Her Look
| Last updated
A woman with a unibrow and hairy upper lip said she’s not removing her hair anytime soon despite copping abuse on the street from strangers.
Eldina Jaganjac, who has over 25,000 followers on Instagram, has chosen to embrace her natural hair and ignore what critics think.
While speaking with Daily Mail, the influencer revealed that when she’s out in public, she often captures the attention of young men.
She said some blokes stare at her facial hair thinking it’s a ‘third head’.
She said: “I've had people come up to me on the street telling me it was cool, and a few yelling at me.
"That was uncomfortable at first, but if some people have nothing to do other than yell at strangers, then so be it.
“I don't want to waste my energy on someone who clearly has too much time on their hands.”
The 31-year-old woman, who works as a teacher in Copenhagen, Denmark, shared that she’s been the victim of keyboard warriors as well.
She said: “I've had some rude comments here and there, but very few were from grown-ups.
"Mostly it has been teenagers on social media telling me how to perform the art of personal grooming. Or just commenting ‘unibrow’."
Wow, what an original sting.
Jaganjac shared with the outlet that when she was in her early teens she noticed her friends began plucking their eyebrows and shaving their legs, as they wanted to conform to normal beauty standards.
However, she never felt pressured to follow their lead as she entered womanhood.
She said: “I eased slowly into it, so it wasn't like I made an announcement.
"Some of my friends said it was cool after I grew out my brows, some didn't notice, and most didn't care.”
Jaganjac revealed to Brightside that many young women reach out to her disclosing that they also feel ‘pressured’ to remove all body hair and adhere to society’s standards.
She added: “I think my advice would be, that if people don’t like you, you can always find new friends.
"You can always find other groups of people who will accept and value your thoughts and feelings. And do you really want to be liked for someone you’re not?”
Jaganjac also never anticipated accumulating a significant following across social media and is still perplexed by her popularity, saying: “It’s really strange, because a man wouldn’t go viral for having prominent eyebrows, so why would I?”
