Have you noticed how the beauty world can be a little bit mysterious sometimes?! Shouldn’t beauty trends make us more attractive, more beautiful?
The new generation of beauty gurus are trying to break the traditional beauty standards and are using social media to talk about them. While laser hair removal has become the latest trend, social media is showing us that beauty gurus are not ready to get rid of hair and are, in fact, even developing a cult for keeping it around.
Everything began two years ago when female celebrities proudly showed their hairy underarms on red carpets. At the time, we were talking more about a movement than a trend. It was a way for women to get their power back and to act as they wanted.
Of course, Madonna was one of the first who decided to proudly show off her hairy armpits.
Back in 2016, models with furry nails were seen on the runway at the New York Fashion Week. We owe this incredible manicure trend to Jan Arnold, director and co-founder of CND Nail Polish. What a surprise it was to see hair on models’ hands, but, at the same time, it seemed to be an extension of nail art, something the fashion world could easily accept.
Earlier this year, Instagram showed us a new trend regarding hair: “Squiggle brows”!!! As weird as it sounds, the idea is to create a zig zag shape on your eyebrows. I don’t know about you, but I feel like doing your brows is difficult enough without having to adopt a trend that requires an entire day — especially if it makes you look like an alien.
Few weeks ago, another bizarre trend came up, and, if you have an Instagram account or a Facebook profile, you’ve probably seen this picture in your feed.
Yes, getting fake hair nose extensions is the new trend…!!!!!!!
@Gret_Chen_Chen probably didn’t imagine that the photo reposted a thousand times all over the world. But since then, the trend has taken hold, and is being spread by beauty gurus, and seems to mean something.
Again, isn’t beauty supposed to make you feel pretty? Is it going too far?
The more I ask myself, the more I understand that beauty shouldn’t be a standard but something that makes you feel good and confident. So if having a nose full of hair makes you feel awesome, why not?!
