Denver, CO- In November men are encouraged to stop shaving for No Shave November or Movember.  The goal is for men to not shave for 30 days and raise awareness for men’s health issues including testicular cancer and prostate cancer. The movement has caught on globally and you’ll even see local Denver news anchors taking part in it. 

Recently women have been encouraged to do something similar for January or Januhairy as it’s been coined.  The movement started six years ago and according to the founder Laura Jackson,  “Januhairy is liberating because it gets you thinking about the way you treat your body and why,” told to British newspaper Metro in 2021.

What do you think?  Will Colorado women embrace Januhairy or will this just be another social media trend that never takes off for the masses? One California woman has been embracing the month and hopes to set a new Guinness World Record for having the world’s longest arm hair. Macie Davis-Southerland’s hair measures 7.24 inches. She plans to keep growing it to beat the male record of 8.54 inches.
