I watched 'Cherry Healey - How To Get A Life' last night and it was heavily focused on beauty and how far people are willing to go to reach their idea of perfection. I've zoned in on body hair as opinions tend to be divided, for many guys and women.
Every part of the body is covered in hair except from the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet, so there is a lot of hair there and sometimes it is very visible. I have really fair hair and it can hardly be seen so it isn't as major an issue for me as it is for some ladies. Infact, my beautician is really dark haired and she regularly calls me a bitch because she would love it haha. I understand why girls can get paranoid about it, especially darker haired ladies as they can be easily seen.
Hair can be removed temporarily by waxing, tweezing, using hair removal cream, shaving and threading. IPL offers a more permanent solution. Most girls tend to their underarms, eyebrows, upper lip, legs and private areas. However I know some girls who do their whole face, stomachs etc.
But, in saying that... I wouldn't force someone to remove hair. Other peoples body is none of my business, so who am I to tell them what they should or shouldn't do? Whatever anyone does is up to them. Different strokes for different folks and all that. Infact, it isn't even something I even notice on others... how often do you stare at another persons underarms anyway?!
They asked girls and guys on the show what they thought of hairy females and the result was unsurprising. Most girls and all men said it was a turn off. There was a group of young girls and one middle aged lady who didn't mind hair but they were definitely a minority. Each to their own, eh?!
In saying that, my hair routine is minimal. The presenter of that show said her hair routine takes up to 2 hours a week to complete which is a big chunk of time. Maybe I'd be more relaxed if it took me that long.... Maybe, but probably not.
What do my followers think? What is your hair routine?
