Body Hair: Getting to the Root

Body hair can be unsightly, but it’s all part of a natural process. Read on for a basic overview of this stubborn foe.

Follicle: the part of the skin that anchors an individual shaft of hair. Each follicle consists of a sebaceous gland, which secretes oil (sebum) to condition the hair and skin, and a few nerve endings at the base that allow hair to carry out one of its main functions: to act as a sensitive touch receptor.

Growth cycles: during the initial phase of the hair-growth cycle, anagen, strands grow up to 0.2 mm per day. This is followed by a catagen phase, which lasts two–three weeks, then a telogen phase in which hair stops growing. Individual follicles may be at different stages of the cycle at any given time.

Epilation: the removal of hair from the root. Common methods include tweezing, waxing, laser hair removal, and stapling a tiny eviction notice to every follicle.

Depilation: the removal of hair from above the skin, usually via shaving or depilation creams, which evolved in the 1930s from formulas used to remove hair from cattle hides.

Jazz bikinis: the common term for the short skirts worn by flappers in the 1920s—a trend often attributed to the rise of leg shaving as a popular routine.

Customer Reviews

Sophie is very friendly. Lovely lady that is newly starting out her business and is learning the market well. She is aware of customer requests and takes them to heart to improve herself (judged this based on her services on 2 separate occasions). There is definitely room for improvement on minor hygiene/cleanliness, but people should just express their requests nicely and see the changes rather than hound on the poor woman. She is human and trying very hard. As for her services, no complaints; she does a great job removing unwanted hair.

Because of the "nature of the beast", a Brazilian wax is never a pleasurable experience, not like a hot stone massage, for example. So it is especially important to have some of the basic comforts in place. And Shapes Brow and Wax Bar has that. It is done in a clean and spacious environment. Sophie is professional, kind, caring, quick and makes it as painless as possible. After several "horror show experiences" in other waxing salons, this place was a breath of fresh air. I will be going back :)
