Like a lot of ‘pro-hair’ people, I always thought that total hair removal would be an attempt to look like a girl when I was a grown woman. That was what I thought right up until I tried it for myself. I hadn’t planned to ‘go smooth’ when I went for my usual bikini-line wax. It was a Friday and I arrived at my regular salon imagining that the same girl would be doing me as usual. It turned out to be a different one this time, however.
