Pubic hair styles

Why do people modify their pubic hair style?

The most frequently reasons are:

* fashion
* religion
* tradition
* sexual practice, such as for oral sex
* tactile sensation
* appearance
* hygiene

The modification of pubic hair can be considered a statement about one's style or personal lifestyle as can leaving it unmodified. The fashion designer Mary Quant was famously proud that her husband trimmed hers into a heart shape.

Pubic hair styles example:

  • Natural style — no trimming or maintenance

  • Trimmed style — hair length is shortened but not removed or shaped

  • Triangle style — hair removed (generally waxed) from the sides to form a triangle so that pubic hair cannot be seen while wearing swimwear . This can range from the very edge of the "bikini line" to up to an inch reduction on either side. Hair length can be from an inch and a half, to half an inch

  • Landing strip style — hair sharply removed from the sides to form a long centred vertical rectangle, hair length about quarter of an inch

  • Hitler moustache style — a shorter version of the landing strip

  • Brazilian waxing/G-wax - pubic hair completely removed except for a remnant, centred, narrow stripe above the vulva approximately an inch in size, and the hair length in the sub-centimeter range

  • Full-Brazilian/Hollywood/Bare style — pubic hair completely removed

  • Dyed style — colouring hair to match hair on the head, or to give it a unique look (for example, red--in the shape of a heart)

  • Others — V-shaped, heart-shaped, arrow, initials, etc. These are usually variations of the Brazilian/G-Wax, where a design is formed of the pubic hair above completely bare vulva.
