A month-long campaign encouraging women to grow out their body hair has got off to a flying start, with women from around the world showing their support with social media selfies.

Januhairy, started by Laura Jackson, 21, from Warwickshire was launched at the beginning of the month to help women love and accept their natural hair while raising money for charity - similar to a female version of Movember.

Just a few days in, women from  to Romania have joined the challenge, sharing the results online under the hashtag #Januhairy, which now has more than 2,300 posts on .

While some are flaunting the natural fuzz on their armpits, others have taken photos of their unshaven legs, saying there's no shame in rocking a natural look.

One user, who posted a picture of her hairy underarms, commented: #januhairy and all year long really. #nye #2k19 #noshavenoshame
