Nose hair extensions are popping up all over social media as the latest bizarre beauty trend.
The unique beauty statement was derived from Gret_Chen_Chen, an Instagram user, who posted a photo of herself wearing eyelash extensions around her nostrils. She called them “nose hair extensions.”
FOX26 reported she wore the eyelashes as a joke but the photo went viral and the trend quickly caught on. Several beauty bloggers posted photos of themselves wearing the small hairs on their nose, as well. Other people put it them on their lips for fun, as well.
Taylor R., a beauty blogger, said in a YouTube video the hairs look like “spiders or cockroaches crawling out of your face.”
"I think it's really fun for people to take a break from the workday and look at something maybe a little inspiring or and just have a break or moment to enjoy that," Laura Levinson, the Senior Beauty Editor at Pop Sugar, told FOX5. "Is it something we're saying is the big new trend for 2017? Probably not."
