WHOA! This Trend Is Truly Hair-Raising! Even Celebrities Like Madonna And Miley Cyrus Are Totally In!

If you are a woman who is having a bit of trouble or problem about armpit hair, you will surely like this trend. This hair-raising trend (literal hair raising) is highly supported by big time celebrities like Madonna and Miley Cyrus.

Enter the Women's armpit hair movement.

The armpit hair movement all started when a so called Armpit Hair Competition kicked off in China few months ago. The idea was presented by Xiao Meili, a woman’s activist in China.

“Girls are often anxious about their armpit hair as if it’s a sign of being dirty or uncivilized,” Xiao Meili explained. “But we should have the freedom to choose whether to accept what grows naturally on our bodies.”

Underarm hair for women is traditionally seen as very unfeminine and unhygienic. This is what the movement is aiming to change.
"Men have more freedom in terms of what do with their bodies," Meili told The New York Times. "I'm just saying if some people don't want to shave, the rest of us should not think their underarm hair is disgusting, unhygienic, uncivil or not feminine enough."
The women's armpit hair movement already attracted the attention and support of some of this generation's most influential celebrities. Some women are also starting to post their own hairy armpit photos with hashtags like "#armpithairdontcare."

Here are some more celebrities who proudly showed off their body or armpit hair in public.

I can say that I am one of the lucky women that don't have a lot of hair on the armpits, but I still shave and I'm not sure if I will feel comfortable if I don't.

I know this is about being yourself and doing what you want no matter what others think, but this is one thing that I don't see myself doing.

Didn't Madonna do this trend in the 80's? I don't understand this trend-- they won't shave their armpits but they will wax, shave, and laser everything else? Come on!

I get this is a trend for celebrities because they always want to be shocking. I don't think i could personally because I think I smell more with hairy pits. - Erin Kennedy

I honestly cannot jump on this bandwagon. We'll have to wait and see how long this trend is going to last.
