It can be tempting to skip shaving in winter months. But, still, according to some ingrained beauty standards, women are expected to shave everywhere and be smooth all the time. However, lately, more and more celebrities are going “au naturel” and rocking a little fuzz. Supermodel Gigi Hadid flaunted armpit hair for LOVE magazine’s advent calendar with absolutely no shame. This caused divided opinions with some people supporting her choice while others encouraging the model to shave.
Here are 9 more celebrities who decided to ditch the razor and unapologetically flaunted their body hair, courtesy of Viral Thread.
