Furry Manicures and 9 Other Beauty Trends We Can't Explain

Furry Manicures

Furry Manicures

For some unfathomable reason, many people have taken to gluing faux fur to their nails in the name of fashion. Besides looking like something out of a horror movie, how can people with these nails DO anything? There would be fur everywhere, and everytime you wash your hands, your nails would smell like wet dog.

Eye-Enlarging Contacts

Eye-Enlarging Contacts

Large eyes are a traditional sign of beauty, so if you want to make your eyes look bigger, you can now buy “eye-enlarging” contacts that make your irises look larger and more defined. This product may be missing the point, though. No one cares about how big their irises are. People care about how big their eyeballs are, and there’s a much more effective way to make them look bigger: eyeliner.

Yaeba Teeth

Yaeba Teeth

In America, we manipulate our teeth to make them as straight and perfect as possible, but in Japan, women are doing the opposite. It’s trendy for Japanese women to have overcrowded, crooked teeth, and many undergo dental procedures to obtain this look. It does look kind of cute in a childish way, but a painful dental procedure probably isn't worth it if it isn't medically necessary.

Nose Waxing

Nose Waxing

Everyone has nose hair, and most of the time it's completely unnoticeable. And even if it is slightly noticeable, it can be easily and painlessly trimmed! This raises the question of why people are inserting hot wax into their nostrils and ripping out their nose hair (and likely ripping their soul in two from the pain). We may never know.

Tattooths

Tattooths

Tiny, subtle tattoos are becoming increasingly popular, but one of those tiny tattoos stands out from the rest: the tattooth. These tooth tattoos can be astoundingly intricate, but why go through all that effort and pain for it to be seen by no one (if it’s towards the back of your mouth) or for it to be seen at the worst possible moments (if it’s one of your front teeth)?

Bedazzled Lips

Bedazzled Lips

Celebrities, runway models, and women on Pinterest have recently taken to rocking the bedazzled-lip look. Women glue rhinestones or other jewels to their lips, and while it looks fine in photos, it seems like a nightmare in real life. Eating or drinking become a chore, and giving your partner a kiss could literally scar them for life!

Super-Short Bangs

Super-Short Bangs

Bangs are constantly going in and out of style, and super-short bangs are apparently all the rage. How short? About an inch or two, which makes them a million times worse than even those horrid, choppy bangs you had in elementary school. This trend is ridiculous. It has to be bangs or no bangs ... there’s no in-between.

Toe-Besity Surgery

Toe-Besity Surgery

“My toes are too fat." Yes, some people have apparently had that exact thought, and they’ve done something about it. You can now have surgery to “slim” your toes, but no one’s going to notice whether you have chubby toes anyway, so you might as well spend your money on a good pedicure.

Silvered Hair

Silvered Hair

Many people start dyeing their hair once it turns gray, but now young people are dyeing their hair gray as a fashion statement. You have plenty of time to embrace the gray trend when you’re older, so why not embrace your natural hair color now? Otherwise, before you know it, you’ll be trying to dye your hair back to its original color.

Bagel Head

Bagel Head

The bagel head trend, which involves injecting saline into the forehead to create a swollen, bagel-shape, has become pretty popular in Japan in recent years. The appeal isn't entirely clear. It seems highly uncomfortable, and who wants to look like they shoved a bagel under their skin?
