Research Behind the Brand

The user research for this project has been conducted from three main perspectives: psychology health, and social. 

For psychology, the central questions were "How do women feel with body hair?", "How do women feel without body hair?", "What is the impact of choosing to remove body hair versus or not to remove body hair?" whereas perspective of health investigates "Is it better to remove/keep the hair?". From the social perspective, the questions arise in portray of body hair in media, the evolution of trends throughout history, and the influences of society.

Shifting Trends

With the influence of feminism, body positivity, and inclusion movements, body hair is under the spotlight. Starting the conversation is critical, and the influencers on social media tackled this by creating the hashtag #januhairy.

Brands are adapting to this shift by launching new campaigns that prove their presence with this trend.
