Nicole Richie and Kelly Osbourne are rock stars when it comes to hair. They’ve been rocking pastel locks long before Kylie Jenner launched her line of teal extensions. But now that everyone’s growing out their unicorn ombre dye job, a new coloring trend is taking the net by storm. Introducing dyed armpit hair.
Rain Sissel matches her do with her pits.
Roxie Hunt dyed her armpit hair pink.
You might think that cotton candy armpit hair is just something beauty extremists are playing around with. But what you don’t know is that there’s actually a strong cause behind it. Roxie Hunt and Rain Sissel, writers behind the DIY hair blog How –To Hair Girl, started the Free Your Pits Movement as an experiment when Roxie publicly came out as a woman with hairy pits. Soon it became an effort in spreading the word on feminism, body positivity, acceptance, and freedom of choice.
Meanwhile, we’ve spotted other celebrities who have been sporting hairy pits as a form of performance art (?)
