'Sellotape selfies' take over from 'no makeup selfie' as the latest online trend
In the same week that #nomakeupselfie raised £1 million for Cancer Research, Sellotape selfie has taken its crown
The sheer speed at which crazes become passé online has become apparent once more, as in the same week that #nomakeupselfie went viral, Sellotape selfies have replaced it.
The pictures filling up Twitter and Facebook news feeds show people fearlessly wrapping sticky tape around their heads, with total disregard for protecting sensitive and potentially painful areas like their eyes or eyebrows.
While the ‘no make-up selfie’ has seen £1 million raised for Cancer Research in just 24 hours, Sellotape selfies have no purpose other than seeing how contorted and unrecognisable a person can make their face.
The trend has also adopted elements of the no makeup selfie.
Where women nominate each other to pose completely bare-faced to raise cancer awareness and donations, some sellotape selfies are accompanied by the names of friends to take up the gauntlet and make their ugliest face. Most just describe how painful it was to remove the tape.
While the hashtag was used on Twitter October last year, in the 10 hours since Sellotape selfie Twitter and Facebook account were created, hundreds of people across the world have joined in and posted photos.
