JUST AS WE were all getting our heads around armpit hair being the trend of summer 2015, along comes an enthusiastic rabble of supporters for pubic hair to be embraced in a similar fashion by the public.

When Gwyneth Paltrow confirmed last year that she “rocks it 70s style down there” it made many people question the Brazilian wax and the fashion hold it has on women all over the world.

It has launched loads of opinion pieces of late that are letting us all know that the bush is back

Following all the think pieces from the websites, it’s even started to impact on hair removal companies:

Now that the dust has settled, the dare-not-to-go-bare movement has quietly worked its way down to a business level. Going completely bald isn’t the norm anymore, and it’s influencing hair removal companies in a tangible way.

It’s all changed for this company, anyway:

16-year-old hair removal brand Completely Bare announced it was re-branding as Spruce & Bond. The company will stay focused on hair removal, but under a name that insinuates a much more ambiguous stance on waxing preference.

Everyone has an opinion on this important pubic fashion issue, what is yours?
