According to CNN, women are beginning to embrace their natural underarm hair by letting it all hang out. Why, you might ask!The reasons range from feminist ideology, "enjoying" the natural look, to creating another part of their body they can accessorize. Chinese feminist Xiao Meili actually started up a "armpit hair competition" on the microblogging site, Weibo, where she received dozens of photos.

If you were around back in the late 60's or early 70's, you may remember armpit hair among women was a more common occurrence due to the "hippy chick" movement and some kick-ass weed!

Some celebs who were known for showing off their hairy armpits include, Madonna, Lisa Bonet, Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore, Beyonce, Penelope Cruz, and Britney Spears.

This morning on the show, Pam, Lou and I kicked around the pluses and minuses of armpit hair on women!
