Pubic Hairstyles. With London Fashion Week taking place later this month, it’s time to discover…which style are you?
Pubic Hairstyles. If you grew up in the 90’s and thereafter (some site the porn industry as a cause) removing your pubic hair probably started as soon as you started high school. For many, the idea of any curly hairs sprouting from skimpy swimwear is simply not an option, and when it comes to the bedroom – an unruly nether region is often thought to be a rather lazy and unhygienic option.
Ladies, you are part of a major industry where the choices of how you can style your lady hair are endless, and often a bit confusing. And with ‘everyone to their own’ when it comes to how he or she likes you to maintain your lady garden, like the fashion industry itself, there seems to be an ever-changing trend in what is fashionable downstairs, and what a woman feels comfortable with both socially and sexually. With Fashion Week just around the corner here are six options to choose from so you can achieve the ultimate secret accessory and wow your lover.
1. The Brazilian
Also known as The Hollywood or The Sphinx, this is ‘The King’ of all waxes. Not recommended for a wax virgin, this involves removing all the hair both around the pubis and anal area. It came about in 1987 via seven sisters from Brazil, which is where its name derives. In some countries such as Iran, being bare down there is the only option for many as it is thought to be more hygienic for sexual wellbeing, and generally more erotic. Only for the brave!
2. The Landing Strip
A must for scantily clad catwalk models and a popular wax for many of you, this is sometimes known as French Waxing or a Partial Brazilian Wax. Hair from the peri-anal area and labia may also be removed. Traditionally the hair is trimmed to the same width as your natural fold, and two to three finger-widths long just above the vulva, this is a very popular style for many – it keeps some of your natural womanhood and at the same time shows your partner your have made an effort for them as well.
3. The Big Bush
When you choose to do absolutely nothing with your bush and just remain completely natural this is a style in its own right. Sexual attraction comes in many forms and for some, to be completely natural is sexy for both. Some people say they like the scent the pubic hair holds or that it feels better and improves sensation for them during intercourse.
4. The Bermuda Triangle
Also known as The American, this is the removal of only the pubic hair that is exposed by a bikini and is a very popular option for many of you. The hair at the top of the thighs and under the navel can also be removed if necessary. The hair is trimmed and keeps the general shape of the pubic region, but is significantly less. This option is actually one of the easiest to do yourself, especially if you are choosing to shave rather than wax. All you need to do is shave down the general shape of the pubic region until you create the size you like and then trim down the length to achieve a really tidy look. A good last minute option if you are in a rush!
5. The Vajazzle
Like a bride on her wedding day, you sometimes want to go the extra mile for your partner on a special occasion such as Valentines Day or an anniversary to really make your ‘garden’ sparkle. Depending on your own sexual fantasies, or which occasion you are dressing downstairs for, your options to free-style are endless. Pubic personalisation, or a fairly new term that has come about ‘Vajazzling’ can involve anything from applying gems to your pubic area – which come in a variety of shapes and letters, to dying the hair a funky colour, or even adding a temporary tattoo. Pubic hair stencils are now available in a range of shapes and styles to offer assistance.
6. The Ultimate Fantasy
If you and your partner have a penchant for fantasy sex, then styling your nether regions in a secret style that only you both know about can be rather a turn on. Whether it’s a popular character that your partner refers to you as (think Jessica Rabbit), or tying into a role play that you are trialing in your sex life, go wild and make that fantasy as personal as you can with a bespoke style down below to match.
Finally, here’s a bit of history for you…according to historyundressed.com, in the ancient Roman Empire, hair removal was often seen as an identifier of class. The wealthy women would remove their body hair with pumice stones, razors, tweezers and depilatory creams – having pubic hair was actually considered uncivilised for the higher classes. Whereas for some women in Korea, pubic maintenance has reached a new level with the latest craze being pubic hair implants. Yes, you heard right – pubic hair implants because people aren’t comfortable with the thickness of their hair. Each to their own.
Pubic HairStyles Preferences for Women
Cameron Diaz waxes lyrical about pubic hair in “The Body Book.” Dedicating 367 words to the topic, she writes, “The idea that vaginas are preferable in a hairless state is a pretty recent phenomenon, and all fads change.” It appears that last prediction had some effect; commentators promptly heralded “the year of the bush” and clothing stores added merkins to their mannequins. The New York Times profiled the demise of the Brazilian bikini wax.
But what does the data say is happening in female pubic hair preferences?
Last year, two doctors at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Texas published research based on the survey responses of 1,677 women 16 to 40 years old. They found that just 8.6 percent of women had never groomed their pubic hair, and that “women tended to continue grooming once starting the behavior.” Only 20 percent of women said they had groomed in the past but did not currently do so. So, as of 2011 (the year the data was collected), there wasn’t a trend toward the natural look.
The majority of women who had ever groomed their pubic hair said they used a razor and shaving cream (77 percent). That was followed by trimming with scissors (23 percent) and hair-removal cream (19 percent). (The figures add up to more than 100 percent because there is overlap.)
Waxing was relatively rare; only 16 percent of women said they used this technique. And given that most methods are relatively inexpensive, it’s not surprising that just 28 of the 1,677 women said they went to a salon for grooming. About 95 percent of women said they took care of their pubic hair themselves.
A couple of niche habits also emerge from the data. A little more than 2 percent of women listed “pubic hair dye” as their method of grooming; 1.4 percent have friends take care of their pubic hair; and 1.5 percent of women have their boyfriend or husband groom it for them. We couldn’t find any other categories, so it seems that the question wording assumes that all women in the survey were heterosexual.
But we do have more data. A paper published in 2010, based on a survey of 2,451 women, has a more detailed breakdown; it suggests that choices differ slightly according to sexual orientation. Lesbians were more likely than heterosexual women to have not removed any pubic hair in the past month — 26 percent compared to 20 percent. And 14 percent of bisexual woman had not removed any. The results were almost identical between single women and married women.
The doctors reached a slightly different conclusion about American female pubic hair:
Although women’s total pubic hair removal has been described as a “new norm,” ﬁndings from this study suggest that pubic hair styles are diverse and that it is more common than not for women to have at least some pubic hair on their genitals. In addition, it was found that total pubic hair removal was associated with younger age, being partnered (rather than single or married), having looked closely at one’s own genitals in the previous month, cunnilingus in the past month, more positive sexual functioning scores, and a more positive genital self-image.
Finally, whether or not Diaz is right that total hair removal is a “pretty recent phenomenon” depends on how you define “recent.” In 2008, a paper in the Journal of Communication Inquiry argued that “concern with excessive hair increased tremendously between 1915 and 1945, when magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar and McCall’s extensively disseminated the ideal of hairless white feminine beauty.”
Here’s one last study that may be of interest. In 2012, doctors from the Department of Urology at the University of California, San Francisco, looked at admissions to U.S. emergency departments. The data, collected from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, showed 11,704 pubic hair grooming injuries between 2002 and 2010. Of those, 56.7 percent were women, the mean age was 30.8 years and shaving razors were implicated in 83 percent of the injuries.
Shaving your pubic hair has now-a-days turned out to be a necessity to maintain a healthy and hygienic lifestyle.If not shaved,these hair may start smelling and stinking causing your partner to run away.Besides you may yourself feel that itchiness and irritation with those hair on.Also,men do not prefer women with hair down beneath.During intercourse or just foreplay,women may feel concious and ashamed of having pubic hair,though it’s completely natural.
So it is important to shave off your bikini hair to have a more comfortable ,healthy and confident you.Here is what you need to do.
Here Are The 5 Steps To Shave Off Pubic Hair At Home:
Bikini area is as safe to be shaved or waxed as any other body part of a female but also more sensitive than any other area on your body.Thus you need sometime to prepare yourself before straightaway starting to shave off.
If this is your first time and you have too long hair,start by trimming them using scissors.just hold the strands of hair tight away from your skin and snip them as short as you can.Be careful not to cut your skin and get injured.Snipping is important because razors are designed to cut short hair and using them for long hair will clog the blades and make it ineffective or else leave you with patched hair on the sensitive area.So make sure to cut your hair short to at most a quarter a length long before starting.
Hot Water Bath
The next step is to use luke warm water to soften the skin there before starting to shave off.When your skin gets soft,it is easier to shave off and also creates lesser razor marks and bumps.Soft moistened skin is less prone to inflammation through use of razors.So prefer to take a hot water bath and clean up the area before setting on with the rest of the procedure.
After having bath and before starting shaving off,exfoliate your skin for proper removal of hair from beneath the skin.exfoliation also removes dead skin cells from your skin.Exfoliate before and after you shave.In case you don’t have any exfoliation product readily available with you,you can also use a sugar scrub or other DIY kitchen products to do the same.You can preferably mix three tbsp of brown sugar ,one tsp of raw milk,one tsp of virgin olive oil and a tbsp of honey,mix them well and use as an exfoliant.
Main Process Of Shaving
Apply shaving cream in the area.When you are all ready to shave off the intimate area,hold the skin down firmly and then slowly start erasing the hair in the direction in which the hair grow.Holding it firm down is required to prevent bruises and injuries and also there will be lesser irritation from blades.If the hair don’t go off in two goes ,try changing the direction you move your razor to sideways and if it still doesn’t go off,work your way upwards.Always prefer to move the razor in the direction of the hair. Start with the abdomen area down below and make your way to the butts if you want it all clean.Lastly,stretch your legs apart,hold your butt flab apart and slowly work your way to the butt hole.Though it ain’t necessary to clean it all up,it totally depends on you.
Be slow and don’t keep on shaving certain part of the area aggressively if the hair do not come off instantly.It leads to inflammation and reddening of the area which later causes itchiness and it gets really bad when you wear something on later. If you don’t have shaving cream,try using a hair conditioner. Keep your calm and be patient.You need to be extra careful before shaving off such sensitive area.It may take hours.Just find a quite,private and peaceful room for you before you start off.You need not finish off all the shaving in one go if you can’t maintain your calm for long.Take your time and perform the procedure in sets.
Wash And Pat Dry
Now when you are done with the shaving part,wash with a creamy soap and water.Later you can also use raw milk to moisten,smoothen and clean the sensitive area.Then sprinkle some astringent to give you a cooling effect and keep away the itchiness.Then you should also apply aftershave cream or an aloevera gel mixed with glycerin to give some antiseptic cure.Lastly,apply a moisturiser or vaginal creams and wear something comfortable and preferably loose so that even after shaving your skin doesn’t get inflammated and red.
Do not forget to carry out after shave care of the intimate area as this area is really sensitive and may cause lots of problems to you later.
