WHAT DOES HAIR REMOVAL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

hair removal

Hair removal

Hair removal, also known as epilation or depilation, is the removal of body hair, and describes the methods used to achieve that result. Hair typically grows all over the human body. Hair can become more visible during and after puberty and men tend to have thicker, more visible body hair than women. Both men and women have visible hair on the head, eyebrows, eyelashes, armpits, pubic region, arms, and legs; and men also have thicker hair on their face, abdomen, back and chest. Hair does not generally grow on the underside of the hands, the lips, certain areas of the genital structure, or the underside of the feet. Forms of hair removal are practised for a number of reasons, including cultural, sexual, medical and religious. Forms of hair removal have been practised in almost all human cultures since at least the Neolithic Era. The methods used to remove hair have varied in different times and regions, but shaving is the most common method.
