Women's Razor Company Breaks Boundaries With Campaign Showcasing Female Body Hair

Project Body Hair/Vimeo

One of the world's strangest little outrages is how in commercials for female shaving products, the model demonstrating the razor is already completely hairless. Why? Because the idea that a woman's body should be as close to hairless as possible has been beaten into our collective consciousness as a society and showing a woman with body hair on television, even within a commercial for shaving said body hair, is taboo.

Billie, a razor company, is looking to change that.

Billie's Project Body Hair is a campaign to celebrate women with body hair and to normalize the idea that shaving is a choice, not a necessity.

Along with their own videos and images, Project Body Hair is also releasing many photos of women with body hair to Upslash, a popular stock images website, in the hopes of normalizing the sight.

Photographer Ashley Armitage loves the new initiative:
It's amazing that Billie is the first shaving company to actually show women with body hair. In all razor commercials, for some reason I can't wrap my head around the fact that models already have smooth hairless skin. How can you know that a razor is even doing its job if all it's doing is swiping off some shaving cream? And more importantly, why is showing female body hair so taboo?"

She took these photos to help in the effort:

Twitter is loving Project Body Hair too!

Georgina Gooley, Billie's co-founder, commented in a press release:

Only showing smooth, hairless legs seemed like an archaic way of representing women. We have always said shaving is a choice. It's your hair and no one should tell you what to do with it. We're excited to launch a campaign that will help normalize body hair and change the one-dimensional way in which women are portrayed in mass media.

TW: There are a lot of horrible crimes disclosed here. Violent.

Prison is a horrifying place. It is brimming with society's worse. And the people who work and patrol those prisons are living in fear on the daily. Now not everyone is pure evil but plenty are, and those who keep us safe from these people lay their loves down, probably with not enough pay. Imagine spending day in and day out with murderers and lunatics? No thanks.

Hold my beer!

We all know Murphy's Law is real. And never, NEVER say... "So what next?" That is just calling on the spirits of evil to mess with you. Life is a struggle and sadly some moments are met with sorrow then met with hardship and then misery. It's a wonder we all get out alive..... Oh. Wait.

Warning: This is adult subject matter. Escorting is an arduous job. And it is a job. Maybe not one we'd all love to do but it's work none the less, especially when you have to mess with someone you may not find the most "aesthetically appealing." The workers in the trade have an endless well of stories to tell us. And you know we're dying to hear. Our questions on this topic are bottomless.
