We should all wholeheartedly support more hair removal. It’ll just make the world prettier, okay? But according to this infographic, it really costs a lot of money over time. With waxing, we’re talking hundreds of dollars a year. Over a lifetime, that’s thousands and thousands of dollars. With that in mind, the price tag for laser hair removal doesn’t look so high.

What do you think? Would you opt for zapping your legs and under your arms with lasers? Or do you stick with the tried and true shaving gel and razors?

One Response to “Women Spend a Lot of Money on Hair Removal”

  1. I am a 52 year old woman, and I haven’t shaved — arm pits or legs — since I was about 19. I disagree with the “make the world pretty” statement, and would like to point out that the perception of body hair being unfeminine or “ugly” is something that we have been taught by ads and our very shallow, commercialized main stream culture. I would add, for those prone to stereotyping and jumping to conclusions, that I am not a lesbian, and also that I never had trouble getting dates or having a relationship. The men I have had serious relationships with didn’t care about body hair, and they ranged from a street artist to a multimillionaire. What they had in common was a desire to look and live below the surface of life. That’s not to say that women can’t shave and live a less shallow, more meaningful life — but imagine if women shed the market-driven perception of our natural, hairy state as being “ugly” and put all the time, energy and resources we spend on shaving into sustainable living practices and making the world a better place. Include cosmetics and other beauty products, and we could probably solve all the world’s major problems in a couple of years.
