A Hirsute Affair

By Uncategorized

At the heart of A Hirsute Affair are the myriad cultural meanings and representations of hair. A Hirsute Affair garners its name from hirsutism, a medical condition found in women who grow excessive amounts of hair, often occurring in places where hair does not normally grow.
