Hairier, Scarier and More Creative: Bodyscaping Trends Revealed

Wednesday February 17, 2021

It's hard to see the forest through the trees. For many pandemic-stricken singles, body grooming has taken a back seat over the past year as daily showers and teeth-brushing are the most people can manage. A new survey by LawnStarter revealed some interesting facts about who prefers to manicure their lawn.

Surprisingly, more men than women have continued grooming, with 51% of women and 59% of men describing their pandemic body hair as either a "managed forest" or a "well-manicured garden." You're twice as likely to trim if you're engaged or married versus singles. What areas are most popular? Sixty-nine percent of women continue to shave their armpits, while 78% of men concentrate on their faces.

How about waxing? More choose to do so in the summer, with 20% of men enduring the slather and rip of a waxing treatment. More than 31% of women are willing to deal with the sting to look smooth.

Does age make a difference? According to the survey, yes, with Gen Z and millennials (18- to 29-year-olds) grooming twice as much as other age groups since the pandemic.

And our favorite random fact? Bisexuals are most open to "non-traditional" grooming tools, using epilators, wax or laser treatments to remove unwanted hair.
