“We need to change the name to beauty strands,“She told InStyle.

“I hate this term. Beauty hairs make me feel beautiful, and that’s a cute thing.”

“Women have the urge to pull the hairs out of your helmet every day so people know you’re a girl,This young player previously posted on TikTok in November.

“Sl*t yarn 4 lives.”

FYI, snowboarder Elsa Watkins founded Sl*t Strand Society, a Denver-based apparel company. In one of her former media interactions, she said that she “didn’t necessarily like” the term growing up but later adopted it and took ownership of the nickname.

“When we started calling them sl*t fibers like sixth grade, it was like being stuck with us. Now, it has become a huge global community of ladies and lovers,” she explained.

“I just grew up knowing that’s what we call them. I don’t necessarily like it, but I thought, OK, if this is what we’re going to call it, we might as well just embrace it and make lemonade out of lemonade, because obviously the name isn’t going to change.

“You would be hard-pressed to see anyone at the Olympics right now without them trying.

“It’s an incredibly simple way to make everyone in the space feel honored and included and worthy.” Watkins added.
