A new trend among young women is growing right underneath their shoulders: armpit hair.
What was traditionally seen as unclean, unkempt or unladylike by the masses has been reclaimed in the name of womanhood and radical self love. Of course magazines have highlighted celebs such as Madonna and Miley Cyrus show off their hair as a means to
shock fight traditional beauty standards. However, the organic beginnings of this movement started with regular women who were tired of maintaining a rigid status quo and proudly took to the web to make a statement.
Photos of women sharing their newfound freedom in embracing what comes naturally can be found all throughout social media using the #noshavenoshade tag.
To add their own personal flair to the movement, aside from women growing out their armpit hair, they’re also dying it!
What are your thoughts? Have you let your armpit hair grow? Are you for or against armpit hair?
