Grooming pubic hair is now a common routine for men and women. There are also a lot of reasons why people groom their pubes. It can be because of comfort, hygiene, personal preferences, sex appeal and many more.

Actually, there is no correct or wrong way to deal with your pubic hair. You can definitely leave it grow long, shave it in various shapes, trim it or wax it off completely. It will only depend on your personal choice.

For first timers, knowing the basics of grooming pubic hair is vital. It is to avoid any grooming related injuries and infections. To help you get started, here is a valuable guide to grooming the pubic hair.

Grooming styles

Before you start to groom your pubic hair, it is important to know what style or look you want. Here are the common grooming styles for men and women.

For women

  • Bush – pubic hair is fully grown
  • Brazilian – every hair around the vulva and anus is removed
  • Bikini – anything that can be seen when wearing a bikini or any underwear is removed
  • French or Landing strip – leaves a little strip of hair on the pubic mound and around the anus

For men

  • Bush – all pubic hairs are grown long
  • Brief – pubes that are peeking through the underwear are cut off
  • Lion's mane – keeps all the hair above the penis. This style is perfect for men who want to make their penis look longer.
  • Trimmed – cutting the pubic hair shorter
  • Landing strip – maintains the hair on the penis and in the middle of the pubic mound

Ways to groom the pubic hair

Nowadays, there are several ways to groom pubic hair. Listed below are some of the most popular pubic hair grooming methods.


Shaving is the most cost-efficient way to groom the pubic hair. However, this method is most likely to cause razor burn on the skin. To help you minimise the risk of razor burn, follow these few steps below.

  1. Take a bath or shower first.
  2. Lather the pubic hair and the area around it with a fragrance-free, chemical-free shaving cream. For women, make sure to avoid the shaving cream from getting inside your vaginal canal.
  3. Then pull your skin and gently shave the grain of the hair. This is to minimise ingrown hairs.
  4. When done, don't forget to apply moisturiser on your skin to avoid irritation and ingrown hairs.

When it comes to shaving, you must expect that your hair may start growing back after 1-3 days.


Waxing is the process of removing the hair from the roots. Unlike shaving, waxing can keep the pubes from growing back for a longer period of time. You can either do DIY waxing at home or let a professional do it.

Here are a few steps in waxing at home.

  1. Get a quality DIY waxing kit.
  2. If your hair is longer than half inch, you must trim them before applying the wax.
  3. Prepare the wax according to the instructions on the box.
  4. To test its temperature, you can do a strip test on your inner thighs.
  5. Once the wax temperature is bearable, apply it in thin stripes. Hold your skin tightly. Then firmly rip away the strip from the skin.
  6. Repeat the steps above if necessary.
  7. Once done, moisturise the skin.

Using hair cream removers or chemical depilatories

Hair cream removers or chemical depilatories work by dissolving the hair that sits above the skin. Using chemical depilatories is significantly safer compared to shaving. There is no risk of cutting your skin or irritation when using cream removers.

Below is a quick step-by-step procedure for using hair cream removers.

  1. Apply the product to your pubes.
  2. Let it sit for a few minutes. This is for the product to break down the keratin in your hair. Thus, it will be easier to remove the pubic hair.
  3. Then wipe the product away with a warm damp towel.


Laser hair removal is a procedure wherein pubes are removed completely. If you frequently struggle with ingrown hairs, then this treatment is perfect for you.

Lasering is a semi-permanent hair removal procedure. It is because after the treatment, your pubic hair may grow back after a many months or even years.

Tips for grooming pubic hair

  • When grooming your pubes, it is a good idea to prep your pubic area. You can take a hot shower to soften your pubic hair. You can also apply a warm washcloth if you don't want to shower.
  • Shave in the right direction. If the hair is pointing up, shave it in an upward direction.
  • Take care of the shaved area. After grooming, you can moisturise your skin to condition it and the hair follicles.


Grooming the pubic hair can be a hassle routine if you don't have any idea how to do it. It can even cause minor and severe injuries if not handled well. Good thing, this blog post can be your guide to help you get started.
