Hair and femininity are inextricably linked, as are hair and female self-image. While many powerful femmes defy the logic that a head full of hair is necessary to feel beautiful, desired, or complete, many more women around the world feel strongly that their hair is a vital part of their identity.
It’s not just our crowning glories that define us, however. For many women, femmes, and female identifying people, hair sprouting from body areas apart from the top of their head can be critically damaging to their self-confidence. Femmes with excessive facial hair, body hair, or patches of aberrant hair growth can be made to feel like they are worth less than women without those very common and very negligible issues.
When the way the world perceives you doesn’t quite match up to how you perceive yourself, it can be devastating to your self-esteem. When that disassociation is the result of something as manageable as unwanted body hair, there are few reasons not to act.
No woman is defined by the hair on her head, or anywhere else on her body, but given the complex way in which gender performance relies on these antiquated norms, the vanity of femininity can feel inescapable. And if unwanted body hair is making your gender expression more difficult than it should be, permanent laser removal may be the best solution.
