Everyone should be allowed to do whatever they feel like, be it a common person or celebrities, as long as no one gets hurt in the bargain. But society at large, has some do’s and don’t’s for instance, ‘armpit hair.’ In the case of men, unshaven armpit hair is acceptable, but with women, it is an unacceptable thing. How does armpit hair hurt anyone? Well, now, this myth has changed and women with an unshaven armpit are the latest trend, as they prefer going natural and are unashamed about the whole thing. These celebrities need a special applause for bringing armpit hair into the mainstream.
1. Miley Cyrus
She takes great pride and is unashamed in flaunting her unshaven armpit hair, by donning freaky colors to it. The ‘Malibu’ singer captioned the photo “It’s Friday, and I have pink pits.” Cyrus even recorded and uploaded the entire bleaching and coloring process of her armpit hair on Instagram.
2. Michelle Rodriguez
Clad in a bikini, the Fast and Furious star flashes her lavish armpit hair as she enjoys beach frolics in Mexico. She couldn’t keep her promise made to her Instagram followers that she would shave her armpit hair at some point before the new year. Nice to see her going natural.
3. Scout Willis
Daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore is totally unashamed and cares the damn for going natural with her unshaven armpit hair. The motto behind was to promote gender equality, as she also recently went braless for the FreeTheNipple movement, wearing just a top.
4. Jemima Kirke
An unashamed ‘The Girls’ actress, Jemima, went on to display her unshaven armpit hair at the CFDA Fashion Awards in June 2015. Until October that same year, she decided to continually keep the unshaven trend existing, as she enjoyed going natural.
She is one selfish woman, who always focussed on pleasing herself, even if it’s got to do with her unshaven armpit hair. She proved it by uploading this scandalized image on the social media, by captioning it “Long hair… Don’t Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove.”
6. Lourdes Leon
As they say like mother like daughter, Lourdes, who didn’t want to be far away from her mother Madonna, in flaunting her unshaven armpit hair. Well, she did regret this choice later on, but then, it’s her body and to do or not to do is entirely her decision.
7. Julia Roberts
This ‘Pretty Woman’ was one of the earliest celebrities to rock her long unshaven armpit hair, much before Miley Cyrus grew it. Julia went natural on the red carpet of the Notting Hill premiere way back in 1999, unashamed.

She is also one among the early celebrities, who exhibited her unshaven armpit hair proudly during the NYC premiere of ‘Enough’ in the early 2000s.

17. Sarah Silverman
This comedian is unashamed about her excess hair when she flaunted her underarm hair at an event in 2010. In the past, she would anyway joke about being hairy as a monkey. Well, there isn’t any doubt about it, after looking at the picture below. By the way, she looks erotic.

19. Bella Thorne
She is randomly shutting the mouth of all body-shamers, by displaying a care the damn attitude through her snap revealing her unshaven legs, captioned “OK fine.
