Bikini Line Shape Choice Statistics

If they idea of having somebody else sorting out your bikini line leaves you feeling confused and embarrassed, you’re not alone.

So what do other people do?

It’s not a matter which crops up often in conversation and the area tends to be fairly well hidden!

Surveys have shown that bikini line hair grooming is now quite the norm, with a survey for Cosmopolitan by YouGov in 2016 revealing how much hair people are removing. The results show that 96% of women under the age of 30 carry out some form of grooming:

  • 47% now remove ALL their pubic hair (known as the ‘Hollywood’ bikini line treatment)
  • 38% of women under 30 ‘trim’ bikini hair, leaving some in place, comprising:
    • 15% ‘standard’ bikini
    • 10% ‘full bikini’ line and 4% ‘small triangle’ (or ‘high bikini)
    • 5% Brazilian (which leaves a small patch on the pubis)
  • Only 4% of women under 30 do no pubic hair management at all

Bikini Line Guide

bikini style guideTo help embarrassed clients with confusion about what ‘style’ of bikini line would best suit them, Cosmedics Beauty have produced their exclusive ‘Bikini Line Style Guide‘.

This gives a summary of the key styles with a description to help clients.

  • Standard bikini – neatly trimmed, leaving a small triangle of hair
  • High bikini – trimming down to a thin ‘landing strip’
  • Brazilian – leaves just a small patch on the pubis
  • Hollywood – full removal throughout the pubic area

There is no need to be embarrassed as their trained and experienced beauty therapists will have seen many previous clients.
