Body hair is a personal choice, some people trim, wax, and shave, others let it grow wild and free. A new study from Britain finds that 57% of 16-24 year olds embrace the smooth look, despite many growing facial hair. In recent years, the popularity of body hair removal has gone up; in 2018, as many as 46% of all men removed hair from their bodies, up from just over a third (36%) in 2016.
Meanwhile, 42% of males aged 16-24 remove hair from their underarms, up from 16% in 2016. Hair removal from the chest has risen from 15% in 2016, doubling to 30% in 2018; while hair removal from the back has increased from 10% in 2016 to 12% in 2018.
So, to hair or not to hair?
