HAPPY 100 YEARS EVERYONE!!!

It is now widely understood that the key motivator behind women removing their body hair was marketing and advertising. The first “unwanted” body hair advertisement appeared in 1915 – targeting armpit hair in particular – and has subsequently colonised the rest of the women’s bodies (and increasingly men’s bodies too).

Timeline has created a brief video “celebrating” hair removal’s first century. Happy anniversary y’all!
