Dear Laca,

On the subject of pubic hair...

It’s hard to know what’s in style. I used to look at porn stars to spot the trends. In my adult life, there was a time where everyone shaved bare, then it changed to shaving little shapes, and now it’s trending towards a nicely tended bush. All this is to say, I have no idea what will be popular when you end up caring about these things. Ultimately, you should go with what you think looks good on you because men don’t care AT ALL and if they do they’re absolute freaks and there’s no reason to hook up with those guys anyway. Women definitely don’t care because we know what it takes to maintain/wax and know that it’s barely worth it lol.


When it comes to waxing, I strongly encourage you to stay away from self-waxing. I know it’s cheaper, but I’ve seen a lot of ladies at the waxing salons with horror stories about burning themselves. If waxing any area of your body is something you’re interested, let me know and I can bring you to a salon! If it embarrasses you, you don’t even have to tell me what you’re planning on waxing.

Something to consider with waxing, it will damage some of the hair follicles so if you do - for example - go for many brazilian waxes and the fashion changes to growing your hair out, then your hair will grow out less full, and maybe even patchy. In some cases that may be a good thing, like underarm hair or leg hair or between your eyebrows. But I just thought you should know.

Getting your legs waxed feels so luxurious (afterwards) and smooth. You should definitely try it sometime.
