    How Did We Get Here?

According to sciencealert.com, humans have about five million hair follicles all over their bodies. These follicles, tiny organs on our skin's surface that produce hair, take up residence predominantly on our heads and in our noses. Hair has served us well, protecting our bodies when we are cold or hot, and keeping dust and dirt out of our nostrils and eyes.

Both men and women have been removing body hair for centuries apparently, plucking, burning, tweezing and ripping out the follicles.

An article in http://www.todayifoundout.com says that it believed that as far back as 4,000 B.C., women were using dangerous substances like arsenic and quicklime to get rid of undesirable hair. The article, titled The History of Shaving, said that the Egyptians denuded all of the hair from their body. According to the article, being hairless prevented the spread of disease, lice, and other insects. By 500 B.C., Roman women were using pumice stones and even an ancient version of the razor to erase unwanted hair.

No one can categorically pinpoint the exact date when men decided to shave their beards. But we can take a pretty good guess that that form of grooming started during the Stone Age where paintings on cave walls depict Neanderthal man using seashells as tweezers. Flint blades, believed to be the first razors used for shaving, date back as far as 30,000 B.C.

These days, both sexes are still plucking, lasering, stripping and ripping hair off their bodies using a variety of methods and tools. Some new tools have been brought into play, among them laser and waxing. And then there is now permanent hair removal.

Many women are getting Brazilian hair removal and French Bikini hair removal at salons and spas all across Connecticut, including Neslon Salon & Spa in West Hartford. Hair is also removed from their underarm, brow, lip, chin, neck, leg, upper and lower, arm. And men are getting hair removed from their chest and back.
