In every culture, there is a norm for lack of (or showing of) body hair. In some countries, it is unattractive for women to have any body hair, besides hair, eyelash, and eyebrow hair. Some women regularly remove underarm and bikini hair, while others do not. In many Western cultures men keep their faces free from hair; where in other cultures, men with beards demonstrate wisdom. Whatever your culture or lifestyle, if you have hair that needs to be removed, there are an array of products to make your choices easier.

Threading, an ancient hair removal technique, that has been around for centuries is still popular today. Razors have come a long way since their invention in the 1760s, when a French barber, Jean Jacques Perret, designed a razor with a wooden guard for protection while shaving. It wasn’t until a century later than King Camp Gillette, an American businessman, invented a much safer, better razor. In 1915, a razor designed specifically for women was invented. In 1936, the first electric razor was brought to market, making shaving much quicker and easier.

Other forms of hair removal, like Nair depilatory lotion, made its debut in the 1940s. In the 1970s, wax strips became popular. Although electrolysis became widespread in the 1990s, it has been around since the 1800s. An ophthalmologist, Dr. Charles Michael, invented electrolysis in 1875 to remove ingrown eyelashes. In 1916, a professor by the name of Paul Kree invented a way to use electrolysis to remove many hair follicles at the same time. Today, electrolysis is extremely popular and is the only permanent hair removal method recommended by the FDA.

Whether you are looking to remove unwanted facial or body hair for cultural or lifestyle reasons, you have your choice from creams and lotions to razors and electrolysis.
