Just when you think there is nothing new out there – Bam. There is. And it’s women dying their armpit hair. I swear.
This is happening.

There is even a website (of course) called Free Your Pits that is dedicated to well, freeing your pits. The founders say, “Our goal is to use this demonstration of personal choice and expression to help broaden and challenge the standard of ‘beauty’ in a society that already places way too many harmful standards on women.”
Amen to that right?
But you don’t have to embrace the hair, to join their cause. They say, “Today we ask you to join us in this effort by being true to yourself, whatever that might mean. Whether you shave or not, women should be allowed to make decisions about their bodies without judgement from others.”
Absolutely. And now I feel sort of bad that I made one very close family member shave her armpits before she wore a sleeveless dress to my wedding so I hope she can forgive me for that.
Now if you want to grow out and color your armpit hair, you can go to a salon. But that can cost you like $65. Or if you are more the DIY type, there are YouTube tutorials.
Or I just sprayed my daughter’s pink hairspray on my shaven armpits.
What do you think? I got to join this trend without even getting hairy!
My armpits feel freer already.
