In the era of modern feminism, few things have raised more debate than body hair and body hair trends. Some want to keep it, some don’t but feminists all over the world agree on one point: it is YOUR hair and YOU have the final say about it.
Since waxing happens to be such a pain, I am strongly pro-body hair. And when you have it, you might as well flaunt it. To help you up your style quotient, I bring to you a list of the hottest body hair trends of this year because hey, life is too short to have boring (body) hair.
1. Colour the armpits with the rainbow of love.
This is mainly a QUEER trend but it is so cool that any experimental human would want to try it out. This trend saw the limelight in June 2017 during the Pride month in the hands of hairstylist Caitlyn Ford.
Ford’s Instagram is full of ridiculously gorgeous hair dye jobs. And this rainbow armpit hair is the ultimate ‘prismatic’ style.
2. A pubic hair bun is the ultimate hairdo.
Practised and first tried out by Seth Rogan, he advices to tie them up in a bun! “It’s been a lifelong battle for me personally. I used to trim them and they would grow back thicker, so where I’m at now with it is I let them grow out then I put them in a bun”, said Seth on Late night With Conan O’Brien.
That’s amazing Seth! We think it’s absolutely trendy!
3. Fur oil for that bush maintenance.
It is something to have a bush and it is a completely different thing to maintain it. If you are a lady, you how important genital hygiene is. Your pubes probably deserve more care than your scalp hair because of the high chances of contracting serious infections down there.
So, why not fur oil? Before you laugh it off, know that the apple of everyone’s eyes, actress Emma Watson has recommended its use saying, “I’ll use that anywhere from the ends of my hair to my eyebrows to my pubic hair. It’s an amazing all-purpose product.”
4. Put on some Swarovski crystals down there and get ‘vajazzled’.
Women cannot live without pretty jewellery and some of the most staunch feminists around the globe have admitted to having just this one feminine weakness. But wait, pardon me if I call it a weakness. A pretty woman is one of the most lethal things under the sun. Fashion houses have customized jewellery for every part of a woman’s body except her most defining part: her lady bits.
In an unprecedented yet welcome (?) move, Jennifer Love Hewitt helped coin the term ‘vajazzled’ when she, with a bit of help from a friend, Swarovski-crystallised her precious privates and it “shined like a disco ball.” Yes, you could try this out and let us know. None of the staff is as adventurous as JLH.
5. Pubic hair wigs are the new thing.
You’ve gotten a full body laser hair removal? And maybe, sometimes you feel as if you could do with a little something down there? Pubic hair wigs are your go-to things in that case. Very popular in the entertainment industry, this is also available for commoners nowadays in various shapes, sizes and okay, not colours but hey, you could always dye them!
And here you were lamenting because you thought it’s only scalp hair wigs. Chin up, now!
6. Show me the love with heart shaped pubic hair.
Honestly, this one is not 2017 special and in fact, it has been around for quite some time now. Just as the name implies, this pubic hair style removes anything unnecessary and leaves behind a neat and trim heart shape. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries or any other special occasion.
7. Get those laughs out with The Chaplin.
Again, this is no 2017 exclusive and as the name suggests, it has been inspired by the classic actor, Charlie Chaplin. This involves removing all the unnecessary hair and just leaving a very small bit at the topmost region of your pubes. Just like a toothbrush moustache. The catch is to keep the hair trimmed, short and very neat.
On a second thought, I guess you could also call it The Hitler.
8. The classic landing strip never goes wrong.
The only reason I am including this in the list is because this style is still in demand in 2017. I don’t think this requires a description but for the uninitiated, this style removes hair from undesired areas but leaves a neat and trim strip just above the vulva. Simple and sweet.
This style is still a hot favorite of some of the Hollywood big names.
Of course, none of the points in this listicle applies to you if you prefer going bald everywhere. I don’t know if they have a full body hair wig.
