Bizarre new beauty trend!
“Thats one way to use up your hair dye! Bizarre new beauty trend sees women colouring their ARMPIT hair before sharing the results on Instagram.
Women around the world are posting images of their newly-dyed hair on the photo-sharing site, using the hashtags #dyedpits”
This article is all about encouraging women to embrace their armpit hair and not feel pressured into shaving it off. This is just another social construct which is seen for women to abide by- to shave off all body hair, particularly armpit hair. Although as evidenced by this article there are now women who are standing up to those social conformities we are expected to abide by from a young age. We are taught as a young girl that hairless is prettier so we’ve always thought this is the right thing to do. Yet now we’re beginning to question what we’re doing and why.
I found 375 posts on Instagram with the hashtag #dyedpits , here’s just a few:
