Thanks Nechoma, that’s the info. I was looking for. Unfortunately many women with Hungarian roots have dropped this minhag, partly because they now consider themselves litvish, and many people, even here on yeshiva world, frown upon it and label it “satmar”.

It’s nice to know it works ther other way around sometimes too.

One of the reasons for this misconception may be because the Satmar Rebbe R’ Yoel was very against women not shave while others didn’t have the guts to fight the American trends.

(This not going against the flow btw was very prevalent in other areas such as basically yiddish dropping yiddish. The irony is that most satmar women at the time spoke hungarian as their main language, yet he managed to by reverse it with their sons, daughters and future generations speaking yiddish as their “mother” tongue.
