The young winner of the dubious title of ‘World’s Hairiest Girl’ has gotten married after shaving her face and finding love.
Supatra Susuphan, also known as 'Natty', is a seventeen year old from Bangkok with 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. She has thick hair coating her face, ears, arms, legs and back and has previously undergone laser treatments that failed to stop the hair growth. Natty made the choice to start shaving instead and now regularly shaves all of her visible body hair. Clearly, the decision has left her feeling very confident as she’s taken to social media to upload lots of proud selfies of her and her new husband.
After winning the title in 2010, Natty spoke to Guinness World Records and explained that though people had occasionally been unkind in school and called her Chewbacca and Wolf Girl, she had a very supportive family who always had her back. '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 anymore. 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.'
