I genuinely think the world would be a a significantly better place without body hair. It’s just gross and I don’t care how much it’s cleaned, it’s never as clean as not being there.

Don’t get me wrong, I have body hair, but that’s mainly just to keep up appearances. I’m also too lazy to do anything about it. I’ve got one of those young faces, so if I took to shaving my armpits etc, people would just assume I was pre-pubescent and then even fewer people would want to get with me. Imagine that.

It’s hard to.

Anyway, there’s been a trend lately for women to grow out their body hair this January; it’s called JanuHAIRy or something like that and it infuriated Piers Morgan, because of course it did.

Said trend has made headlines and, perhaps unrelated, another trend has surfaced, where women are dyeing their armpit hair in a kaleidoscope of colour.

For some reason, the trend was named after unicorns – even though they’re pretty much always represented as pure white – and the results are pretty… interesting.

I mean whatever floats your boat, really. Some people like their body hair and some don’t. That’s life.

21-year-old drama student Laura Jackson founded Januhairy, as she aimed to promote “acceptance of body hair on women”. Her Facebook page reads:

 “Society seems to be behaving as if the natural hair we grow on our bodies is unattractive and distasteful.

We are so used to removing our body hair that we are becoming unfamiliar with our authentic selves.”
