Dyeing your armpit hair is a thing? Yup!

It was in the New York Times, so it must be true. The story, titled “Women Who Dye Their (Armpit) Hair,” investigates the trend. Not only are women letting their armpit hair grow wild and free, they’re picking bright beautiful colors to highlight that area.

According to the Times article:

The Internet, it turns out, is up to its armpits with women who dye theirs. Miley Cyrus displayed her newly pink underarms in a photo she posted to Instagram on May 1, drawing more than 396,000 likes and more than 30,000 comments. On Instagram, more than 700 photos of women (and a handful of men) have been posted with the hashtag #dyedpits. And a blog post by Roxie Hunt, a Seattle hairstylist, “How to Dye Your Armpit Hair,” has been shared more than 37,000 times since it was published in October.

Yeah, Seattle’s right at the cutting edge of the armpit-hair-dyeing movement. Check out the “Free Your Pitsblog.
