Women's Hair Removal Gets a Modern Makeover
Not only are there more options than ever before for hair removal (Waxing! Threading! Depilatory creams! At-home lasering!), but there’s significantly more choice around whether or not you choose to do it in the first place. For those who favor hair removal, there’s never been a better time to do it, thanks to a recent rise of female-focused design, easier-to-use products, and better post-shave options that have paved the path for the process to become more personalized. Ahead, we explore how this age-old self-care practice is being revitalized.
RAZOR SUBSCRIPTION CLUBS
It's a common misunderstanding that shaving clubs are exclusively for men. In reality, many of these services cater to all genders. Among them, a fresh wave of razor brands aims to provide women with a chic, budget-friendly, and environmentally-conscious shaving experience. Brands like Hanni, Happy Legs Club, and Athena Club offer a diverse selection of moisture-infused, colorful razors and convenient subscription options encompassing a wide range of shaving supplies, high-quality products, and substantial savings.

RAZORS FOR EVERYBODY (PART)
In contrast to facial razors, body razors are purpose-built for navigating large areas of skin, even in the slippery environment of a shower. It's becoming increasingly apparent that different body areas require distinct care.
Venus recognized this need and introduced its Pubic Hair & Skin Collection in response to 87% of women's dissatisfaction with pubic hair removal. Additionally, for those who prefer to trim rather than completely remove pubic hair, a dedicated trimmer can be quite helpful.

Ingrown hairs can be both painful and annoying, and treating them requires patience. Although they often resolve on their own within a few weeks, searching "ingrown hair" on TikTok yields over 10.3B views of videos demonstrating various removal methods. Nevertheless, ingrown hairs can still be a nuisance. Fur, a skincare brand specializing in body hair, has recently introduced a groundbreaking solution – the Ingrown Microdart Patch. Think of it as a zit sticker but with microdarts that deliver essential ingredients such as salicylic acid and hyaluronic acid directly into the ingrown hair bump, designed to eliminate them virtually overnight.
