Is hundred mile an hour tape (duct tape) really good for hair removal? Just curious what the consensus is regarding pubic hair. It seems that slick is the new norm. I think all lady's are apprehensive about the au natural beach. Should I shave completely, leave a landing strip or go full beard? Just curious...
Definitely up to you as no one will care. With that said typical seems to be something like women 60% no pubic hair at all, 35% very short strip, 5% full on. Also, for the guys I would say 30% no pubic hair, 40-50% short and shaved in some areas, and 10-20% full on. Personally for me and my guy we love it all gone and smooth. Its good for many reasons Also makes putting on sunscreen easier. Enjoy the sun. - Julie
From my experience, yes the majority are manicured to some point but it really doesn't matter. Do what you feel comfortable with. No one there cares or judges. The AN areas are the most laid back, relaxing places with some of the nicest people you could possibly meet. Go and enjoy.
Don't use duct tape!!! A professional Brazillian wax is really the bee's knees. I recommend it. Do what you are comfortable with, but if you do go smooth, make sure to exfoliate on your vacation to avoid ingrown hairs due to sweat, humidity and sunscreen. They are painful.
I concur with previous posters though that nobody cares. My experience on the A/N island is that most people are groomed, but not everybody is completely bare. Go with what you like. I DON'T recommend doing it (going all bare) for the first time on your vacation. Start the waxing or shaving at least 6 months ahead of time if you have the luxury so that you can learn how your body will react. Itching and being sore at dinner or while sunbathing = NOT FUN.
