‘World’s hairiest girl’ unveils her new look after she begins shaving her face for the first time and marries the ‘love of her life’

A teenager once named ‘The World’s Hairiest Girl’ has revealed that she has married the ‘love of her life’ and now chooses to shave her face.

Supatra ‘Natty’ Susuphan, 17, from the Thai capital Bangkok, has been showing off her newly hair-free face on social media in loved-up photos with her new husband.

She suffers from an extremely rare genetic condition called Ambras Syndrome, also known as Werewolf Syndrome, which is a form of hypertrichosis which causes excessive body-hair growth.

Ms Susuphan, who was named the hairiest girl in the world by Guinness World Records in 2010, has thick hair growing over her face, ears, arms, legs and back.

Even laser treatment has failed to completely stop the hair growth, and she now  regularly shaves her body, her father told local media.

Her social media feed suggests she has found happiness with her unnamed husband after she posted: ‘You’re not just my first love, you’re the love of my life.’

Ms Susuphan is one of a few dozen known sufferers of Ambras Syndrome to be documented since the Middle Ages.

Before the disease was understood, sufferers were branded ‘werewolves’, and to this day some are shunned by their communities.

But while Ms Susuphan revealed that her condition had sometimes seen her called names including Wolf Girl and Chewbacca at school, her family and friends always had her back.

She previously told the Guinness World Records: ‘I don’t feel any different to anyone else, and I’ve got lots of friends at school… Being hairy makes me special.

‘There were a few people who used to tease me and call me monkey face but they don’t do it any more.

‘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.

‘It does sometimes make it difficult to see when it gets long. I hope I will be cured one day.’  – Mailonline
