Dear Dating Mom:
I am dating a guy who loves a hairy woman. He likes hair on legs, underarms, and the vagina. My problem is that I am the total opposite. I have been removing hair on my body since the age of 12 and I really don’t think that I will feel sexy looking like King Kong.

International crisis alert! Supermodel and all-around babe Natalia Vodianova dared to show up at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year ceremony night before last with legs that had not been shaved. I know! You can hardly believe it either. The Daily Mail dedicated an entire article to this body hair situation (as did we, apparently), and, get this, Vodianova had the nerve to flaunt her fur by pulling up her skirt for the photographers. Not only that! Coco Perez has previously documented sightings of the model’s thigh hair. As StyleList points out, she’s a mother of three, so maybe she didn’t have time to get out the razor. Check out the hair concern here, if you so desire. [StyleList] Keep reading »
A few months ago I was putzing around at work and Amelia emailed me to ask, “Hey, do you want to go with John DeVore and get shaved by a barber at The Art of Shaving and film it for the site?” And I thought, Oh dear! They’ve noticed the little ‘stache I grow in between waxing appointments! So, because I enjoy employment, I said “sure” and let my little mustache do its thing. Keep reading »
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to depilating, it’s not! Fascinatingly, debates over body hair have been some of the most impassioned on The Frisky, from the girl who didn’t want to shave her legs to Mo’Nique’s hirsute parade down the red carpet. So, if you’re left undecided over whether you want to be furry like a Care Bear or hairless as a Sphynx, a design duo out of Helsinki called Tärähtäneet Ämmät is here to solve all your hair-related problems. Maybe you waxed, but now you want your hair back. Maybe you want to go smooth-legged by day, but stubble-calved by night. Whatever the case may be, this line of undergarments gives you back the hair you lost. After the jump, see the hairy underpants. Keep reading »
“He loves the hairy legs and if Sid likes the hairy legs, there you go. I tried shaving one time, and it was so uncomfortable and painful. I said never again would I do that to myself. I’m 42 and I’m very hairy.”
– Mo’Nique — who is sure to be rockin’ those hairy gams at Sunday’s Oscars — tells Barbara Walters that her husband likes her furry. I just love her, period. [DListed] Keep reading »
I know what you’re thinking and it’s not that, you perv. A vagina facial — or a “vagacial,” as it’s called — is a post-waxing treatment at the Script Wax Bar in San Francisco available to women one week after they’ve gotten a Brazilian. According to BellaSugar, for $60, the spa’s estheticians will cleanse your vulva with anti-bacterial body wash and witch hazel (witch hazel?), exfoliate, pluck out ingrown hairs, apply “an anti-freckle, anti-acne, or calming mask,” and then a lightening cream.
My oh my, where to start … ? Keep reading »
If Mo’Nique can’t be bothered to shave her legs on the night she knows she’s going to win a big award, there must be more Hollywood stars with razor-phobia, right? Huffington Post seemingly combed through hundreds of photos of celebs at Golden Globes after-parties, on the hunt for evidence of a trend. Jessica Alba gave them what they wanted! A very very very zoomed-in look at Alba’s pits reveals what looks to be at least a few errant strands of hair! Who’s next?! Jennifer Aniston? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
While I always love to read the advice Wendy gives out in her “Dear Wendy” column, I was sort of surprised by the number of responses her column yesterday received. Who knew people could get so worked up over body hair? But I guess I shouldn’t be so shocked — just look at the number of hair removal products on the market. Like the Smooth Away, which I road-tested last night while watching TV. Keep reading »
Poor Levi Johnston. He’s fending off complaints from those (us included) who are disappointed he didn’t show the full monty in his Playgirl pictorial, and now he has to contend with insults about the amount of body hair he has. Nathan Minor, a Chippendales dancer (so he obviously knows what’s manly and sexy), told Us Weekly:
“The only problem — his hairy armpits! We take only mostly shaved guys. He should also focus on his diet to help him get a bit harder. He doesn’t have to go the fitness-y hard look, but he could tighten up a little bit. His body is a little soft.”

Checking out those crazy shoes? Now just look up a bit, a bit more … ahh! The offender! Hippie hair on model legs! Normally, we’d shrug and say your choice (maybe not the wisest one for your profession) to those who prefer to grow it rather than mow it, but this was spotted at the Proenza Schouler runway show at New York Fashion Week, where the freshly-waxed legs of models shine like the top of the Chrysler Building. On purpose or laziness? Yesterday we discussed the all-bare bikini area trend, so maybe the opposite is now going for legs. It’s so hard to keep up.
We’re not sure—this insider-y snap was the only evidence we could find. Many of the other Proenza Schouler models sported tights. However, the collection did happen to have quite a few feather and fringe details. Artistic compatibility? [FashionIndie.com] Keep reading »
