He doesn't love my facial hair!' Bearded woman considers shaving her face for the first time in years because she thinks her husband will find her more attractive Annalisa Hackleman, from Sunnyvale, California, stars on tonight's episode of Strange Love She has polycystic ovarian syndrome, a hormonal condition that causes an increase in hair grown on her face and body Annalisa's husband David supported her decision to grow out her beard after years of shaving her facial hair A happily-married bearded woman is debating shaving her facial hair for her belated wedding photos, as she and her husband prepare to celebrate their five-year anniversary on tonight's episode of the TLC reality series Strange Love. When she was 13-years-old Annalisa Hackleman, from Sunnyvale, California, was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome, a hormonal condition that causes an increase in hair grown on her face and body. While her husband supported her decision to grow out her beard after years of shaving, Annalisa is unsure about flaunting her facial hair in their anniversary photos. 'David is super supportive and accepting of my facial hair. I don't think he loves my facial hair, but he loves me and that's all that matters,' she says in the episode, according to People.

Several years ago, Annalisa revealed to online magazine Beardspo.com that, as a child, she had been incredibly confused about why people felt she should be ashamed of her facial hair - but admitted that, as time went on, their cruel comments and jibes left her feeling terrible about herself. 'I didn’t see why it mattered that I had darker hair on my face,' she explained. 'At the time it was still peach fuzz looking. After being hounded about it, I became self conscious. My mother decided I needed laser hair removal which ultimately didn’t work and began shaving my face to look "normal".' She added: 'About three years ago, I was at the point of shaving my beard twice a day... It was a never ending battle. I formed agoraphobia (unable to leave my house) and would feel anxiety trying to plan outings or go anywhere. When I did leave the house after much stress, crying and worry I found the anxiety wouldn’t calm down. 'Thankfully my husband helped to get me out of my haze and demanded something be done as it was ruining our life together.' Overcoming illness: The California resident has suffered from PCOS, which causes increased hair growth, since the age of 13 It was then that Annalisa began growing out her beard and embracing her facial hair once and for all - and ironically, at the time of the interview, she confessed that she didn't 'know if I'll ever remove my beard again', adding that it made her 'feel free, confident and more womanly' than she had felt in years.
