Reality TV star, Millie Mackintosh, shared a photo of herself online recently. She was sunbathing on yet another tropical holiday and was met with a Twitter torrent of followers asking ‘ew, why are your legs so hairy?’
The former Made in Chelsea star’s tanned legs weren’t covered in a blanket of thick, , but Vaguely visible,, thin blonde hairs. looks pretty normal? I thought too, this was deemed by hundreds of her followers to be unattractive and unfeminine.

This isn’t the first time that the media has challenged women’s depilation habits and it certainly won’t be the last.
So, why is the subject of female body hair or nice hair such a contentious and regularly debated issue?
Well, primarily, there’s an awful lot to talk about – hair removal dates back hundreds of years to the days when it was done with clamshell razors. Today, the UK hair removal industry is worth a reported £628 million – so there is a vested interest for the likes of Venus to keep it in the news.
However, will women ever be clear on whether it’s best to hang on to that hair or go totally bare?Raw 100% AAAAAA virgin blonde hair by
