16 Famous Women With Armpit Hair -- The Cut Can you remember the first time you were informed you were doing your body wrong? I was 13, lying in the grass in the park with another girl, arms behind my head, eyes closed. She sat up, pointed at my armpits, and frowned. “I’m disappointed in you,” she said, and I immediately went home and, wheezing in panic, shaved for the first time.
