Freedom Face – join the beautiful resistance

14 February, 2017

Yeooow! My new book Freedom Face hits the shelves today and I hope it hits the self-hate of the mainstream beauty industry in the guts too!Freedom Face

It’s not about hairy armpits, although that IS in there, and you DEFINITELY don’t need hairy armpits to read it! But I feel like body hair is a great example of where choice has been taken away from women and we’ve been forced to accept a ridiculous beauty ideals.

Also, I do just still think it’s funny. I must be the hairiest beauty columnist Cosmopolitan has ever published, and here I am writing a beauty guide. Mwwwahahaha.

Freedom Face is about shaking off the shackles of that beauty industry in a few different ways- the expensive products we get locked into, the toxic ingredients that are often in them, and the self-hate it perpetuates. There are recipes for everything from shower gel to deodorant to lipstick and mascara, along with my own story and some commentary. Copy of FREEDOM FACE (1)

You can grab Freedom Face in THREE different ways, all of them worldwide in any currency:

Through my e-store as an Epub $9 USD (if you want to read on an ebook reading app like Kobi or a Nook) or

through my e-store as a PDF $8 USD (if you want to open on a laptop or tablet and possibly print out – it is a little cheaper so you have some spare to cover ink costs) or

on Amazon Kindle $9.97 USD

I’ve also put together some packages for people who want to bite off a whole hunk of beauty resistance…

So the first bundle, Beauty Rebel Bundle One,  includes both my e-books, Freedom Face AND my first ebook Happy Hair AND access to my Hair Detox e-course which is packed with video tutorials and worksheets to really help you get to grips with your natural, shampoo free hair.

Beauty Rebel Bundle

The next bundle, Beauty Rebel Bundle Two, includes all of the above AND one to one support from me. This is aimed at people who don’t have much support around them for making these kinds of beauty choices, it is some serious hand holding from me. It includes two skype chats that you can cash in whenever you like and email support. I’d LOVE to connect with some of you this way. Beauty Rebel Bundle Two

(If you have already pre-ordered Freedom Face on Kindle, no worries, you can still get the bundles minus Freedom Face and the Freedom Face cost – Beauty Bundle One and Beauty Bundle Two here.)

I would absolutely love any help in getting the word out there about Freedom Face. I feel more excitement and more nervous anticipation about this than any ebook of mine so far! It is huge, for starters, I also feel a bit vulnerable too, as if I am laying it all bare. If you like it, PLEASE leave a review on Amazon and tell your friends and share this link on social media. Every single little mention of my ebooks makes a huge difference to me! I am also doing a Facebook live on 14th Feb 9pm British time – that is 10AM 15th Feb NZ time! Would love to join in and happy to answer all pressing questions!

THANK YOU! I feel so very grateful to you all, I wouldn’t be here getting to write about things I am passionate about if it wasn’t for so many of you encouraging me. THANK YOU!

Here is today’s Youtube video – it is all about being one hairy mutha!

There is a movement afoot that says every person is valuable and worthy and that the world is more beautiful when wobbles and leg fuzz and different skin tones and hair types are celebrated.
I hope you’ll join in.

    I get what you are saying and I think there does needs to be less fear in how we dress or choose to be, but at the end of the day we all have choices, we can all decide to cave into peer pressure or what the world thinks ( take on board harder for teenagers). But there are genuinely people who have no choice like those who have over stimulated hair growth hormone, alapica or even going through chemo. Whichever way we think these people need to be in the back of our minds I know because I was one of them and no matter where I looked hair non hair beauty non beauty it made me feel inferior because I had no choice. Fortunately I do now I salute you for what you do, also get those who just want to make up on but let’s remember those who have to sit on the very edge of this line. All the best

    Hi Lucy,

    Is the Freedom Face available in a Print format?If any where can I get the copy?

      Hello! The closest is PDF for printing I am afraid – print books for self publishing are expensive, low quality and not very profitable… Email me if you would like a copy
