Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: HubMob of Shaving and Hair Removal

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow (we hope)

The Hairy Truth

Most of us were born bald or nearly so. Time and aging took care of that but the hair forgot to stop growing in places where we no longer wanted it.

If you're of a certain, umm, age, the situation may have thrown itself into reverse on you. Ahh, gotta love changing hormones, don't you? The hair has quit growing and has vacated the places it should be and is starting to sprout in spots you'd rather it didn't. You men who've noticed an increase in ear hair or ladies who pluck chin hairs know what I'm talking about. And just to clear something up - no, it is not acceptable to let ear hair grow long enough for a comb-over.

In an effort to reduce our unwanted hairiness, we take to shaving, waxing, tweezing, sugaring, laser treatments, electrolysis, that mitt that you sand the hair off with and any other method of hair removal that we can get our hands on.

Oh and ladies, let us not forget the ultra painful Epilady. You know, that contraption with rollers that grabbed your hair and yanked it out brutally, causing pinpoints of agony and redness. It was sheer torture!

Well, never mind.  The hubs below will have some answers to your dilemma of unwanted hair.  Our HubMobsters have slaved over their keyboards just to bring you some answers.

      Yeah, H. Folly, that pic at the top sort of makes you shudder, doesn't it?

      Thanks so much for coming by!

      That is a scary first picture. Love the interesting layout of the article.

      Yeah, Laserman, that pic is pretty gross, isn't it? :)

      Thanks for coming by.

      Funny pic in the intro! Great hub, thanks for the info!

      Thanks, Princessa! I hope having them all in spot helps.

      Dink96, think St. James posed for this? Maybe the papparazzi got to him!

      Mayhmong, you could write about waxing eyebrows and legs or something like that.

      Thanks for the comments, everyone!

      LOL at Dink96.

      That's a tough topic to write about. I can't think of any good ways to remove hair other than having your eyebrows wax.

      This is looking great Shirley, so far the Hubs are absolutely awesome, thanks for the chance of having all of them in one page.

      Why thank-you, Frieda! That's so nice of you to say!

      It is an interesting topic. Should produce some interesting hubs, for sure!

      I received an Epilady as a gift once...tried it twice and never again. I managed to do an area about 1" square, it was all I could stand.

      Thanks for your great comment, Frieda!

      Hi, Elena. I agree with you about that image, it's distracting. It instills a fascination similar to not being able to take your eyes off a train wreck. Sooo hideous yet you can't look away. :)

      Thanks, Houseplus! Hope you enjoy reading these terrific shaving and hair removal hubs!

      It's an original topic, for sure. I'm just still kinda thrown by the hubmob image! :-)

      The epilady! More painful than the plucking they showed on the commercials, I'm sure. Thank goodness I never fell for that one! Excellent intro, Shirley! A hub of its own. I have to say this was a daunting and tasking subject. But from what I've read so far, this just may be the most interesting, informative, and oddly pleasing HubMob topic yet!
