Facial Hair in the New Generation

We humans, come under mammals, who have specialized characteristics of body and facial hair. Facial hair is natural and everyone has them. Though since ages, patriarchy has decided that facial hair on women is unwomanly and it is often tagged with uncultured and savageness. On the other side, men are known for their mustaches, beards, and heavy hair growth around the chest. This inevitable part of our body has been seen with different views on men and women. If a man does not have hair, it’s not that much big deal. However, if a woman has hair growth on her face and neck; she is considered lack of feminity in her. People many times stare at her and she is considered a suitable match for marriage.

The perception and thinking of people are taking a new path now. The upcoming trend of going all natural and embracing facial hair is a movement against patriarchy. Women are accepting the idea of natural facial hair and loving them the way it is. We have a great example here: A 27-year-old beautiful girl, Harnaam Kaur, has changed the definition of feminity and showed that how to accept yourself completely. She also did a bridal photo shoot which is worth appreciating.

Our world is getting more open now and various taboos and myths around society are breaking into pieces. Still, there is a lot to come.

We come upon the question, what is facial hair?

Facial Hair:

The hair follicle which grows on your face and neck region comes under facial hair. It includes:

  • Eyebrows
  • Fair follicles on cheeks and forehead
  • Upper Lip
  • Hair growth on chin and neck

Facial hair growth is a natural process in every woman and man. Since ages, facial hair of man has been treated a masculine feature which defines machismo. The thicker the beard or the longer the mustache, the stronger and more masculine the man.
Women have always threaded or waxed hair growth on their body. Any extra hair growth is frowned upon. We women should embrace our natural beauty; however, nowadays some have their own choices.

We have often struggled for salon appointments and high price issues for certain hair removal treatments. The pain during this process is also daunting. Women have to go through a lot just to look acceptable, feminine, and cultured. Below are some of the common hair removal techniques:

Waxing

This technique has been prevalent since ancient India – Waxing. Using the colored wax pallets is the new trend. Waxing can be done at home as well as at salon.
Waxing is done by applying hot melted wax over the desired area and then ripping it off using a cotton cloth or a wax strip. Every woman now that how painful it is!

Threading

This method has been used by a maximum number of woman all around the world. A special thread is made especially for threading. The thread is twisted to form turns around itself, the hair is trapped between the thread, and then pulled out from the roots. This doesn’t last long and you have to do this procedure as the hair grows again. This process is comparatively less painful than waxing.

Tweezing

Tweezing can be done at home using a tweezing kit. You can pluck unwanted hairs using a tweezer. This is a simple and comparatively less painful method than waxing and threading. This method is commonly used to remove one or two unwanted hair. Doing this on entire body is not possible.


Let us discuss some prevalent permanent hair removal treatments :

Laser

Laser (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) technique is used for a variety of purposes in almost every sphere of life. For hair removal treatment, the light ray with specific wavelength and energy is used to destroy hair follicles which stimulates and are responsible for the growth of hair. So basically, the laser destroys the root cause of hair growth which helps in the permanent removal of facial hair. Although this treatment is expensive and time-consuming, yet you will get permanent results.

Electrolysis

This process is similar to the laser technique. In this process, a needle-like a probe is inserted next to the hair follicle, the hair follicle is then destroyed using high-frequency radio waves and the hair is pulled out manually by the specialist. To achieve permanent results, a various number of sitting may be required. This is a time and money consuming process. To achieve permanency, a number of sitting may vary from person to person.
