I don’t know what’s going on with beauty and fashion lately, but I think it needs some help. First, we had vagina necklaces, then boner brooches, then clear plastic mom jeans, then camel toe underwear and glitter booty and butthole mouth and OMG, trends, go home. YOU’RE DRUNK.
Now? Now we’ve got somebody trying to make nostril hair extensions a thing. Yes, you read that right: NOSTRIL HAIR EXTENSIONS. Except the difference between this budding mode and all the others? Pretty sure it’s a joke. And EXACTLY what the beauty and fashion industry deserves.
Instagram user @gret_chen_chen attracted the attention of Allure writer Devon Abelman, who wrote about @gret_chen_chen’s October 4 Instagram post featuring a close-up pic of herself with fake eyelashes adorning her nostrils, along with the caption, “Nose hair extension #nosehair #lashes #extensions #beauty#selfie #eyelashextensions #falselashes #加藤一二三”:

With brow art trends at their peak, it was only a matter of time before someone tried to take viral beauty trends to another part of the face. (Eyes and lips are so 2016.) Extreme contouring aside, noses really haven’t had their time to shine. So does this mean more people will start gluing other weird beauty shit to their schnozzes now?
To Abelman’s credit, the question is a good one. After all we’ve seen in the past year, I wouldn’t doubt people are about to make some more spectacularly bizarre shit popular, and not just stuff pertaining to the nostrils. But one look at @gret_chen_chen’s Insta feed makes it pretty clear she’s not a trendsetter — just a jokester, and a hilarious one at that.
I mean, a drying hanger skirt? BAHAHAHAHA. (Just don’t let Nordstrom get ahold of that idea because Good Lord, the things they’ve put out recently.)
I’m thinking @gret_chen_chen just delivered the trolling of the century, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
We need to laugh, so thanks for that, @gret_chen_chen. Because if we don’t, we will most certainly die. Unless the impending apocalypse takes us all out first, of course. Always a possibility.
