When it comes to holiday parties, we all know that more is more. Between glittery makeup, dresses, jewelry, shoes and accessories, it’s an excuse to go all out. December may be finally here, but the glitter hitting the Internet right now has absolutely nothing to do with the holidays.
Welcome to the era of the #GlitterPits. Yup, that’s what you just read. Women are jazzing up their armpit hair with glitter, and it’s all for the sake of feminism.
In a bid to avoid the negative connotation in the past that all feminists are hairy hippy women, girls have been taking online in a campaign to advocate for equality in the armpit region. And this is them showing that furry pits can be just beautiful as the hairless variety.
They’re great for parties.

Or for a little pick-me-up in the comfort of your own home.
Whether with a friend…

… or on your own.

So how does one go about creating this look, exactly? All you need is a little hair gel and some glitter. For a really standout effect, be sure to use sparkles and gems of all different sizes. Oh, and um… it might be a good idea to ditch those razors for the next couple of weeks first. And when all else fails, ask a dude who got into the #glitterbeard for some inspiration. Sorry, the what? Well, as any member of the glitterati knows, #glitterpits is just the latest glitter trend to hit the social media circuit. #Glitterbeards, although perhaps not as socially conscious in terms of messaging, is also a very real thing.
They’re also a great way to show off the holiday spirit.

Of course we couldn’t have had either of these trends without the good old fashioned glitter roots. When they first hit we thought they were kind of cool (well, except for the nightmare that would be washing them out). But now, in comparison to beards and pits… well we kind of just want to know what’s going to be next.
