Celebs who exhibit underarm hair as the height of self-assurance. Another victory for team no-nicks-and-cuts follows the return of the complete bush: grown-out underarm hair.
A recent research found that almost about one out of four women under the age of 25 no longer shave their underarms.
And following lockdown, it’s probable that more people are violating outmoded body hair taboos, with many adopting a more worn-in appearance.
Thankfully, beauty standards are expanding as more superstars publicly blur the lines between genders. But the celebrities who defied body hair traditions in earlier decades set the groundwork for this long needed change in society’s beauty norms.
