The well-groomed woman, once viewed as a throwback to the 1950s, is seeing a huge revival thanks to the likes of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton and TV shows such as ‘Mad Men’ - according to home laser hair removal brand TRIA Beauty.
Nearly 70 per cent (68%) of women in the UK say they remove body hair because they like to feel groomed - and one in four (21%) say they have become more vigilant about hair removal over the last three years - which indicates a new focus on good grooming practice.
"We are seeing a huge revival of a ‘groomed look’ amongst women in the UK," said psychologist Honey Langcaster-James. "Research demonstrates that nearly half of women do it because it boosts their confidence (45%). This is driven by a number of different factors. When they’re feeling well groomed, women feel more superior than their less groomed counterparts. They feel ready to tackle anything life throws at them - both in their professional and personal lives." Continued Honey.
Not surprisingly, singletons are most likely to focus on hair removal as a way of boosting confidence with over half (55%) citing this as a reason. As women get older, however, they are less in need of a confidence booster. Two thirds (61%) of 18 - 24 year olds cite boosting confidence as a key reason for hair removal which then drops significantly to a third (33%) amongst the 55+ age group. "As women get older, there are a multitude of reasons why they focus less on grooming. It’s likely they rely less on outer confidence - as they have more inner confidence. In addition, they are less likely to be able to spend time on themselves as they have more going on." Said Honey Langcaster-James.
