About

Chest Hair Bikini is a photo fad in which men shave their chest hair to reveal a patch of hair that resembles the shape of a women’s bikini top. Originally introduced via Twitter in September 2013, the trend went viral almost a year later on Instagram in August 2014, following the emergence of numerous gender-swapped fashion fads like Flower Beards and Makeup Transformations.

Origin

On September 6th, 2013, Twitter user BenFindlay83[4] tweeted out a picture of himself with his chest hair shaved in the shape of a bikini with the hashtag #ChestHairBikini.



Spread

On November 18th, 2013, Whoa Flow[5] featured a photo of a man sporting a chest hair bikini as the “Pic of the Day.”



On June 29th, 2014, Neatorama[6] published a roundup titled “The Hot Summer Look For Really Hairy Guys.” On July 7th, 2014, People[2] published a post titled “Introducing the Mankini: Chest Hair Gag or Hot Summer Trend?” The trend was covered by several sites on August 11th, including Buzzfeed[1], TIME[3] and The Huffington Post.[7]
