GIRLS GONE WILD

Whereas The Seattle Star article from 1920 illustrates the unusual body modification step leg shaving represented in the early twentieth century, recently the internet has been a buzz with discussing Lena Dunham’s summer to do list. This revelation was likely to have prompted debate whatever it proposed, however, the imagination and attention of the hairlessness norm have been distracted by the first item: ‘Grow armpit hair’.

The world is already aware that Lena does not shave her legs – as each of the articles that discuss her summer plans highlights – and that she has serious reservations over women’s depilatory “choices” through her memoir Not That Kind of Girl. And this week her Girls co-star Jemima Kirke effortlessly broke the internet by ‘sporting one of the most controversial looks to ever hit the red carpet in 2015: her own body hair’.

1433383307555Opinion is of course split and the #TeamHair and #TeamBare camps have been out in force but following Miley’s pit dying summer 2015 looks set to be a big body hair season. Cue humidity and visibility!
