We’re guessing you don’t chat about hacking away at your armpits, bikini area, or upper lip at brunch, so you might be curious about what the “normal” hair-removal protocol is. That’s why we asked more than 5,000 of our readers about how they get rid of it—and they gave us all the details. Fun facts: 36 percent of the readers surveyed said they consider themselves “hairier than average,” and the top annoyance was that it grows back too fast (the second was that de-fuzzing freaking hurts—raise your hand if you’ve been personally victimized by a razor blade). Check out the hair-raising (sorry, had to) stats we pulled from the survey, and tell us if this sums up your habits.
