“Axilas de unicornio”: la nueva tendencia que ha causado furor en Instagram

Conoce la nueva y peculiar tendencia de Instagram: "axilas de unicornio", que desatado furor en las usuarias de popular red social.

Una nueva y curiosa tendencia de Instagram ha causado furor en la popular red social, por las peculiares fotografías en las que las usuarias enseñan sus axilas con vello, pero pintado de diferentes colores.

Esta insólita moda de Instagram surgió a inicios de este 2019, cuando se creó el movimiento “Januhairy”, que consiste en que las mujeres se dejen crecer vello en las axilas durante todo el mes enero.

Laura Jackson, una estudiante de teatro de la Universidad de Exeter, en el Reino Unido, fue la que inició esta “moda” en la popular red social, luego de expresar cómo se sentía cuando se dejó crecer el vello corporal para un papel.


Hi I’m Laura, the gal behind Januhairy! I thought I would write a little about my experiences and how Januhairy came about... I grew out my body hair for a performance as part of my drama degree in May 2018. There had been some parts that were challenging for me, and others that really opened my eyes to the taboo of body hair on a woman. After a few weeks of getting used to it, I started to like my natural hair. I also started to like the lack of uncomfortable episodes of shaving. Though I felt liberated and more confident in myself, some people around me didn’t understand why I didn’t shave/didn’t agree with it. I realised that there is still so much more for us to do to be able to accept one another fully and truly. Then I thought of Januhairy and thought I would try it out. It’s a start at least . . . I have had a lot of support from my friends and family! Even though I had to explain why I was doing it to a lot of them which was surprising, and again, the reason why this is important to do! When I first started growing my body hair my mum asked me “Is it you just being lazy or are you trying to prove a point?” . . . why should we be called lazy if we don’t want to shave? And why do we have to be proving a point? After talking to her about it and helping her understand, she saw how weird it was that she asked those questions. If we do something/see the same things, over and over again it becomes normal. She is now going to join in with Januhairy and grow out her own body hair which is a big challenge for her as well as many women who are getting involved. Of course a good challenge! This isn’t an angry campaign for people who don’t see how normal body hair is, but more an empowering project for everyone to understand more about their views on themselves and others. This picture was taken a few months ago. Now I am joining in with Januhairy, starting the growing process again along with the other wonderful women who have signed up! Progress pictures/descriptions from our gals will be posted throughout the month.

Ahora, el fenómeno del “cabello de unicornio” se ha apoderado de las redes e, incluso, ha llegado a Youtube, donde la mujeres se muestran eseñando sus axilas multicolores en las redes.

People indicó que este peculiar concepto concepto apareció por primera vez en 2016 cuando la youtuber Rainbow Girl publicó un tutorial de tinte para el vello en las axilas en su canal, que se hizo viral y ya tiene más de 675,000 visitas en la plataforma de videos.
