We Tried 7 Different Hair-Removal Methods & Here's What Happened

Hairy limbs, pits, and nether regions have become quite a contentious subject in recent years. While some have celebrated body hair, others feel more comfortable removing it. Is there a right or wrong way? No. Whether you want to be as smooth as a baby's bottom or you'd rather let your hair grow out — you do you, always.

With summer approaching, we decided to test out a few different methods for those of you who do want to remove hair, but may be looking for an alternative to the standard razor. From waxing to epilation (and even the more permanent laser), seven Refinery29 employees documented their hair-ridding experiences for your reading pleasure. Check it out in the slides ahead.
