2017's Weirdest Beauty Trends We Didn't Even Consider Trying

From nostril extensions to boob nails, these are the most outlandish beauty trends 2017 served up that we weren't exactly buying...

2017 Weird Beauty Trends

Remember all those bonkers stories you read this year telling you that 'THIS' is the next big beauty trend, only to realise it was something totally outlandish, normally a little bit gross and for some reason almost always wiggly/involving hair extensions?

Well, we've rounded them up in what we like to think of as the 'so bad it's good' guide to the 2017 beauty trends.

Think of it like the hair and make-up version of Netflix's self-funded film A Christmas Prince, aka totally fascinating and enjoyably mind-numbing but ultimately it's a guilty pleasure and not an actual legit thing.

Yup, these are the year's dodgiest beauty trends we love to look at from the safety of Instagram and no closer. Ta, very much.

1 Hairy Nails

Weird why?  Let us count the ways this hair nail trend counts as weird. 1. Your nails  now have hair... 2. They feature a tiny replica of your own face. 3. How are you supposed to achieve anything with these? We don't even want to imagine the typing-based issues.

Weird why? The most recent way to make your eyebrows the most extra, bejewelled crown brows were everything you'd want from a Instagram beauty trend - OTT and a just a bit too ridiculous for real life. We're deeming these NSFW.

5 Wiggly Brows

Enjoy your weekend Black Tie Beauties! #friyay #itstheweekend #blackgirlmagic #blacktiebeauty #wavybrows #wigglebrows

Weird why? For some reason everything in 2017 had to be wiggly (see below) and eyebrows were no exception. The basic rule is, if you can do it to an eyebrow, then why not? Not necessarily our life motto...

6 Wiggly Lips

Weird why? The next instalment of wiggly beauty mania (see above), squiggly/wibbly/wobbly lips might give you a bigger pout but we're seeing haunting similarities to our post-flu chapped lips when there's n'ere a lip balm in sight.

7 Nostril Hair Extensions

Weird why? This one feels pretty self explanatory. False eyelashes in your nostrils? Just think of the tickle factor.

Weird why? Hey, we're all about the body confidence here at ELLE but creepily shiny synthetic vaginas on our acrylics was a step too far for our feminist selves.

9 PB&J Hair

Weird why? Because we're not sure a divisive sandwich filling should ever be the inspiration for our next dye job. What's next? Salmon paste and cucumber hair? Egg mayo and cress? This could be the beginning of mankind's descent...

10 Glitter Tongue

Weird why? Between the health concerns (digesting glitter is not fun) and the sheer mess of it all, we're not sure this glitter beauty trend is worth it. After all, unless you're doing a Miley 24/7, it's hidden inside your mouth. The word pointless comes to mind...
