Are Women Really Into Your Mustache?

With Movember in full swing, it's time to think of mustaches. Not beards, but mustaches that exist alone without the beard. You know, like the one Brad Pitt has been rocking as of late. It's a difficult look to pull off for many, and since it is that Movember time of year again, it seemed…

When I saw that today's New York Times Style section has yet another article about the return of pubic hair, I sighed with annoyance. Must we? Again?

“The Armpit Song” Should Be Our New Beauty Anthem

"The Armpit Song," by Siwan Clark, perfectly captures the anxiety caused by trying to keep up with societal beauty pressures of eyebrow plucking, nail painting, feet scraping, boob padding and all that hassling about getting vajazzled.

10 Important Moments In The History Of Pubic Hair

Pubic hair has been growing between our legs since … well, since we've existed.

Poll: How Often Do You Shave Your Armpits?

Look, I went to a women's college (Mount Holyoke!) for a year, and I saw a lot of hairy things. I don't judge. But for myself, I choose to shave as often as I am in the shower, which is just about every day. I understand that not everyone is like this, however, and i…

We've done some terrible things to our eyebrows in the past, but in recent years we've learned the key to great brows is leaving them alone. The less plucking, waxing and tweezing you do, generally, the better. Big brows are in --and hopefully are here to stay -- and we've found some of the best…
