Underarm hair is a hit! Whether you like it or not, women all around the globe have already said goodbye to razors and welcomed their underarm hair. It appears that the 59-year-old pop star Madonna has also transferred it to her daughter, 21-year-old singer Lourdes Leon. Madonna has never actually stuck to tradition and, apparently, her daughter is also not afraid to stand out. In an image shared with Madonna’s 10.6million Instagram followers, Lourdes is smiling as her mother holds her face, while flaunting her underarm hair, too. It looks like New Year’s Eve was a wild one for them.
It all started back in 2014.
In 2014, Madonna shared a picture of herself posing seductively in a bra, but at the same time showing off her underarm hair. Her is the caption: “Long hair…… Don’t Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom #rebelheart#revolutionoflove”
Madonna, who was dressed in a black hat and a sheer black dress, did not mention anything about her daughter’s natural look. The post got a lot of reactions from fans.
Some fans were unimpressed by the untamed underarm hair, and one even described it as ‘disgusting’, while another told her to go and shave.
A third one commented ‘yuck’.
Then, there were some who praised her for being ‘happy natural and free’.
Madonna also posted a picture of her twins Esther and Stella. They were wearing cute pajamas. She adopted them from Malawi in February. Moreover, she also has daughter Mercy, 11, and son David, 12, whom she adopted from the African country previously.
This is not the first time with underarm hair in public for Lourdes. The singer, who is also the daughter of Cuban actor Carlos Leon, has been pictured with underarm hair in April last year. At that time, she was relaxing on a beach in Miami. Is she coping her mom or continuing the not-waxing revolution?
But another actress made the very first public appearance with underarm hair. It was Julia Roberts, who flashed her underarm hair at the 1999 Notting Hill premiere.
At the time, the 59-year-old actress blamed the au naturel grooming on her partner, actor Benjamin Bratt, saying: “That’s the way my boyfriend likes them”.
Other stars have also shown off the natural look, including American It-girl Gigi Hadid. She starred in a Love Magazine advent video last month, where she showed off her outgrown armpit hair.
Drew Barrymore, Pixie Lott, and Lady Gaga have also stopped grooming their underarms at some point in the past.
