Introduction of safety razors at the beginning of the 20th century made shaving of underarm hairs feasible.
While the custom of shaving underarm hair became
instantly popular in the US and Canada it became
prevalent in European countries well after World War II.
In modern society, underarm hair removal is widely practiced. It is more common for women to remove their armpit hair than it is for men.
In fact, women with unshaven armpit are considered ungroomed in our society.
Why you don't want u’arm hair today
Hygiene: Removal of underarm hair makes a person feel cleaner and smell better. Excessive sweating in the region combined with hair’s ability to trap & hold on to the smell can cause discomfort.
Aesthetic : Clean armpit is considered more aesthetically pleasing and more sexually at-tractive. Pictures of models displaying hair-free armpit in magazines established this idea in the psyche of men & women years ago. Today, removing underarm hair is a norm for most of us.
Religious: Islam made u’arm hair (and some say pubic area) removal obligatory for men & women for hygiene reasons.
Professional: Swimmers, cyclists & athletes remove all or most of their body hair. The practice helps to make their bodies more streamlined before taking part in competitions. Body builders and adult entertainment industry workers remove their underarm hair for aesthetic reasons.
ANTI HAIR REMOVALISTS: Interestingly, some
actually refrain from removing underarm hair for
sociological reasons. For instance, hipsters in order to
follow the hippies of the 60s prefer to let their
underarm hair flourish and thrive. They even go to the
extent of wearing dresses that expose their hairy
armpits as an alternative fashion statement. Many women prefer to keep their arm-pit hair as a statement of feminism. By not removing their underarm hair, they try to break down social gender barriers.
