Would you be comfortable sharing your own hair removal experiences on social media using the hashtag #MyHairRemoval?
From growing out brows to bikini line maintenance, women have plenty to think about when it comes to their body hair. In the clip, which was first released in October, a woman with skin condition vitiligo is seen shaving her under arms as she gets ready to go do some street art.
Celebrities proudly rocking armpit hair is nothing new.However, a singer/songwriter proudly posing in a bikini on the streets of New York and letting it all hang out is a sight to behold. But that’s exactly what Bella Thorne just did. Using her Instagram platform to share her support for body hair, the 20-year-old flaunted her underarm fuzz with pride while promoting her newly launched Filthy Fangs bikini. And earlier this year fashion model Gigi Hadid did exactly the same for her fitness-inspired appearance in LOVE magazine’s famous Advent Calendar.Showing off her boxing and basketball moves in a red Tommy x Gigi two-piece, the 22-year-old model’s armpit hair can be clearly seen. It’s a welcome move for a fashion industry that promotes the same vision of beauty again and again.Gigi and Bella certainly aren’t the first famous faces to show off their body hair. The likes of Madonna and daughter Lourdes have both debuted it on the beach and on Instagram while Miley Cyrus, Julia Roberts and even Britney Spears have been known to dabble in the underarm hair department.And why not?Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

At a first glance, Sophia Hadjipanteli looks like your typical model. She’s blonde, beautiful and has great eyebrows.Look a little closer and you’ll see she has a full on unibrow, replacing Frida Kahlo as the icon for strong-browed women.Sophia’s unique look has racked up almost 60,000 followers on Instagram. And though many praise her for showing a different view of beauty, there are a few that love to tell the model how unattractive a monobrow really is.For every ‘ugly’ comment, Sophia is aiming to hit back by kickstarting the #UnibrowMovement: a hashtag that she hopes will “normalise [things] that society pressures us to hide or fix. I want to encourage tolerance of others, acceptance of differences, and most importantly- be proud of who you are.”If you’re wondering why Sophia’s eyebrows are so dark, here’s a secret: they’re tinted. The model got so tired of having to fill in her naturally blonde brows that she tinted them, accidentally turning them black.Fortunately, she was over the moon with the look and now regularly ensures to tint them whenever the blonde starts coming through.“I am not really doing this to show people that they have to like [my unibrow], I am more so doing it to show people that they can get on with their lives by having a preference,” she told Harper’s Bazaar.“I personally think my face looks better this way. Others disagree, and that’s totally cool. I am not trying to get anyone on the unibrow bandwagon. If I like this, just let me like this.”“I want to be sure that I am not defined by the way I look right now. I look at [my unibrow] like it’s winged eyeliner or red lipstick. In five years I might look back and think, ‘that was a cool phase!’ But until people start to accept others for this specific feature on their face, I won’t feel ready to move on from it.”Take a look at Sophia’s bold brows along with some other women who are redefining modern beauty with their body hair.Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
