Today in terrifying tween trends: 12-year-olds are getting bikini waxes — for real this time. Good Morning America dedicated a segment this morning to the all the young girls out there getting blowouts and manicures and facials, and while we’re not exactly encouraging of this fad, it wasn’t until they got to the bikini waxes part that we got really skeeved out.
GMA spoke to a couple of salon owners who defended the practice, though not particularly well. For example: “I feel it’s part of hygiene. I do all of these types of things myself. And I think that they’re better off starting young.”
Another offered: “It’s all new to them, so you have to kinda point them in the right direction.”
