Two recent surveys by BABTAC hint that more visible female body hair is becoming increasingly acceptable/comfortable amongst British women.

In July ‘bold’ brows were voted the number one beauty trend of the past decade. Full top ten below:

1. Heavy eyebrows
2. Contouring
3. Dark ‘Berry’ Lips
4. Pin-up red lips
5. Smokey eyes
6. Winged eyeliner
7. Glossy lips
8. Nude lips
9. Penciled beauty spots
10. Natural look

And just this week a second survey found that half of the 2,061 women asked ‘don’t care’ if they are hairy. Evidently the ‘natural look’ is more popular when it comes to body hair attitudes rather than when beauty trends are considered. According to the survey: ‘The average UK woman shaves her legs twice per month, her armpits three times per week and her bikini line once every three weeks’.

Where this hair is, then, appears to affect the nonchalance it inspires and according to the survey: ‘Fourteen percent of women stated that they “never” shave or remove hair from their bikini line, while seven percent never shave their legs (7%). By contrast, only one percent claimed to never shave their armpits.’
