That’s a novel way to use up your hair dye! Queer new beauty trend sees women coloring their ARMPIT hair before sharing the results on Instagram
A novel new beauty fad is inspiring women to grow out their underarm hair and dye it a bright, bold color. This new armpit hair revolution is being spearheaded by hair stylist Roxie Hunt, who works at a popular Seattle salon Vain. She insists that women need to accept their underarm hair – rather than feeling forced to shave it off or hide it. ‘It’s no secret that some of us choose not to shave or wax our pits,’ she wrote in a blog post for Off Beat Home. ‘Daily I am coming upon women who un-apologetically choose not to buckle under societal pressure of scraping a razor against the soft skin of their bodies. If you recall, I want to celebrate pit hair.’
Roxie implored one of her workmates at the salon to help her test out the best armpit dying technique and offers lots of valuable tips and advice to any women desiring to try out the fad for themselves. ‘I have always wanted to color someone’s pit hair… I asked my co-worker Rain if she would be down to let me dye her pit hair blue to match her hair color and she agreed, heartily,’ she wrote
‘I start by blending bleach and 30 volume developer. I knew I needed something amply strong to cut through that coarse hair and lighten it up to the max, but I didn’t want to use 40 volume because I didn’t want to trigger any painful burning on the delicate skin in her pits. ‘First, I had Rain wipe her pits down to eliminate any deodorant that might be lingering. ‘Next, I got right in there with my bleach and color brush, spreading it thick in small sweeping strokes in all directions, ensuring to completely cover every hair.’
And Roxie is not the only soul embracing this new fad. Many women on Instagram have been sharing images of their own brightly-colored armpits using the hashtag #dyedpits, whereas on YouTube, tons of users have posted videos related to dying your armpit hair, asides from many in-depth tutorials.
Destiny M, a Latina blogger, revealed through her video that she decided to dye her armpit hair a bright blue shade after spending years trying to hide her body hair. ‘My hair is very dark naturally,’ she explained. ‘Dark, coarse and thick – and it grows really fast….
‘Our social setup demands women to be hairless and this beauty standard is enforced from a very young age.’ ‘Perhaps it’s because I’m Latina or what, but I have a lot of hair. And it’s thick hair and it’s dark. I have hair on my toes and on my boobs, I have a happy trail…'[Growing out your hair] is so empowering. As a young girl, you are always told, hairless is beauty, it’s perfection. But when you go against the grain like that… it’s so empowering. I really recommend you try it.’http://aartiinformatics.com/fashion/new-beauty-trend-sees-women-coloring-their-armpit-hair/http://aartiinformatics.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/new-beauty-trend.jpghttp://aartiinformatics.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/new-beauty-trend-300x300.jpgFASHIONWEIRDbeauty trends,new beauty,new beauty trend,new beauty trends,new hair trendsA novel new beauty fad is inspiring women to grow out their underarm hair and dye it a bright, bold color.
