Instagram is fast becoming the best space to celebrate body positivity, natural hair movements and beautiful skin markings.
The latest social media trend to sweep the platform is pretty damn awesome. In fact, it’s #flawesome.
Women are using the hashtag to celebrate things they were once insecure about – and we are totally here for it.
The movement was kick-started by US social media star, Tesia Kline, who accidentally took a photo when she was preparing to pose for a shot. Rather than scrap it, she chose to share what she deemed to be an unflattering snap with her 95,000 followers.
She shared the photo beside a snap with ‘good’ lighting. She fearlessly captioned the image: “my legs” and “also my legs”.
She also hailed herself and her followers ‘FLAWESOME from every point of view’. Her followers lauded her for her honesty, with plenty of them hailing her ‘inspirational’ and ‘real’.
Since then, the term has been turned into a hashtag and blown up across Instagram. Perfectly summing up the phrase, one social media user wrote: “Flawesome: when you embrace your flaws and still know you’re awesome.”
Here are some of the badass ways women are using the hashtag to celebrate their looks in the best way…
