'World's Hairiest Girl' Has Found Love And Is Getting Married

'World's Hairiest Girl' Has Found Love And Is Getting Married

A 17-year-old from Bangkok in Thailand who was awarded the title of The World's Hairiest Girl In 2010 by Guinness World Records has not only found love and is getting married but has also shaved off all of her hair.

Supatra Susuphan - also known as Natty - suffers from an incredibly rare genetic condition known as Ambras Syndrome, which has been documented since the Middle Ages but has only affected a few dozen people - that are known about, anyway - since then.

Also known as Werewolf Syndrome, early carriers of the disease were often branded as werewolves by those in their communities, as science had not yet determined what caused the face to grow hair to that extent.

As reported by The Daily Mail, Supatra herself was the subject of teasing and taunting because of her condition, and was called names such as Wolf Girl and Chewbacca at school.

"There were a few people who used to tease me and call me monkey face but they don't do it any more," she told Guinness World Records. "I'm very used to this condition. I can't feel the hair as it has always been like this. I don't feel anything."

In more recent years, as medical advances have been made and technology improved, Mbras Syndrome has been revealed as a form of hypertrichosis, which causes excessive body-hair growth.

Posting on social media, Supatra revealed she has managed to remove all the hair from her face by shaving, and has also found love.

According to her father, even laser treatment was unable to stop the hair growing over her face, ears, arms, legs and back, and as such she has to regularly shave her body.

Demonstrating an incredible attitude, Supatra has previously said: "I don't feel any different to anyone else, and I've got lots of friends at school... Being hairy makes me special."

At the same time, she has also talked about difficulties arising from her unusual condition. "It does sometimes make it difficult to see when it gets long. I hope I will be cured one day," she said.

Although the phrase 'love cures all' might not be entirely accurate in this situation, it's certainly a huge step in the right direction. Congratulations to the happy couple!
