Who can say what is popular?
It’s coming up more often now – people asking about what to do with their “do.” Ladies are asking “what’s popular” after having tried a thing or two with their pubes. I started working on the Moss Beauty Lookbook years ago because clients asked me “what’s popular” with a fearful, deer in the headlights, super naive look on their face. That didn’t sit well, something was going on that made them feel stifled about their opinion. Beauty magazine hype about brazilian waxes may have made them feel insecure about themselves (as beauty hype can do, when taken seriously.) But is it really necessary? You don’t have to participate – just put down the trashy magazines with the mean-girl voices! Leave behind fears that you won’t be hot in bed. You’re HOT! Feel it!! There are so many versions of beauty in the world. If you just don’t know what you look like down there you can take a look or I will show you when you’re here. Either way it’s awesome!
Experiencing new looks with your moss* beauty is kind of the same thing as the way you do different hair-do’s. I’ve tried a pixie, layered long hair, and a few bobs before coming back around to my old standard. I mean that’s fashion – it changes, but it’s not beauty… beauty is just there & we accentuate this or that for one reason or another. It’s all play, costuming and becoming a better version of ourselves (hope-fully.)
Luckily, now the same “what’s popular” question is asked with more playfulness. It’s more like “I don’t want to miss the next fun thing in pube-styling, it might be my favorite!” There is more creativity and thought going in to pube-styling. It means we are taking charge of ourselves and we are more present with our privates. It’s easy to feel confident once you have been professionally groomed, which is my favorite reason to do it. Sometimes new clients still feel like they are “behind the times” because they haven’t been waxed yet, but it’s not something that makes you cool or not cool. It’s more of an opportunity to take a full test drive or go down a new road.
Here’s a pube-styling article by Rachel Kramer Bussel that I was recently quoted in – Thanks Rachel!! http://citypaper.net/blogs/why-all-this-fuss-about-styling-down-below/
* FYI- Moss is a euphemism for pubic hair, that’s why I picked it for the name of my studio!
