Throughout our history, there have been countless beauty trends. Just these couple last years gave us the squiggle brow, glittery butts, fur nails, faux freckles, and unicorn everything. If you'd wish to dig deeper in the older days, you'd find such trends as dyeing tour teeth black a la Japanese, eating absolutely deathly arsenic for skin whitening, and removing the eyelashes in Middle ages just to name a few. But what about keeping it au naturel ?

Alongside the over-the-top makeup trends goes the liberating natural beauty trend. And believe it or not, hairy women, or hairy armpits to be exact, is the new it. Many Instagram influencers have posted pictures, proudly showing their ungroomed armpit hair. Some of them have even begun dying their armpit hair, receiving plenty of praise and criticism for inventing new beauty standards in the process.

Girls with hairy armpits declare this trend as a form of feminism, because why should you shave for somebody else? For some women, cultivating body hair is a way to protest the beauty and maintenance standards placed upon them by society. Indeed, even photographers like Ben Hopper have used armpit-haired models to communicate this message.

Before 1915 and the advent of women's shaving marketing campaigns, even pinups often sported all of their body hair and women with hairy armpits were absolute norm. As they say, there are no friends in taste!

Either she is unsuccessful at dreads or doesn't own a brush either.
