Nine Honey recently celebrated celebrities looking natural, including loveable Australian singer and TV presenter, Sophie Monk without makeup. 

But what about celebs who shave? 

Body hair is completely normal and there’s no shame in shaving, waxing, laser or letting your body hair go naturally. We love it all! 

Although body hair removal is a common practice among many women, shaving - even leg shaving - isn’t a topic that’s often discussed openly. But the question is, why don’t women talk about their body hair removal routines more often?

Societal expectations, cultural taboos, personal choice, and the body positivity movement are all factors that can contribute to the lack of discussion around personal shaving habits.

However, it’s important to remember that women should be free to make their own choices about their bodies, and those choices should be respected and accepted, regardless of whether you choose to shave or not.

Here are a few of our favourite celebrities who aren't afraid to pick up the razor and share their shave rituals. 


#1 Meghan Trainor - Celebrities who shave

Artist Meghan Trainor got everyone talking when she confidently revealed that her hubby “Shaved Everything” for her during her first pregnancy, and by everything, we mean EVERYTHING.

In an interview with PEOPLE, the singer openly shared that her husband stepped in to support her during her pregnancy by shaving her legs as well as shaving down there... She says that not only did it help her prepare for her C-section but it made her feel more groomed and ready to welcome their new arrival. 

In her interview, she said, "For the C-section, I don't know why, but I was like, 'I want a clear path. I want nothing in the way, so make sure it's gorgeous down there,' so they could see everything. And he did that for me."

Shaving down there can be a controversial subject, but the bottom line is this — pregnant or not, hair removal is a personal preference and body hair grooming is the decision of the individual. So if you want to prep your bikini line for beach life or baby labour, it's your body, your rules.

Why there’s no shame in shaving

Deciding to shave is a personal preference, but if you’re someone who likes the feeling of silky-smooth skin, then body hair removal can be a beautiful expression of self-care. Shaving can leave you feeling confident and empowered in your own skin. 

Just like there’s no shame in keeping your body hair natural, there is also no shame in shaving wherever and however you like. 

The act of taking the time to care for your body and focus on yourself can be an interesting form of meditation, allowing you to clear your mind and reduce stress. By taking care of your skin and keeping it smooth and hydrated, you are sending positive messages to yourself and your body. 

Shaving your legs can also be a form of self-expression. Some women choose to experiment with different styles or patterns in their leg hair, bikini lines or eyebrow shaving. 

By taking control of your own body hair and making your own choices about how to groom it, you are asserting your autonomy and demonstrating your self-confidence - so go forth and embrace your personal care routine your way.

Do you embrace your grooming routine?

Shaving is also a simple act that can make you feel more comfortable and confident in social situations, particularly when wearing dresses, shorts, or skirts. 

Shaving can also be a super fun way to connect with other women and celebrate femininity. Why shouldn't you swap tips and tricks on how to achieve the smoothest, most comfortable shave with your besties?

Celebrating the diversity of women's bodies and challenging harmful stereotypes and societal expectations around body hair makes an important statement that says, we're proud to be who we are, and we're not afraid to break free from outdated beauty standards!

So if you are a fan of the traditional shaving experience, the next time you pick up your razor, take a moment to celebrate the act of shaving and all that it represents to you; this could be a celebration of self-care, self-expression, and female empowerment.

There's no right or wrong way to do it – just do what feels good to you and rock it!!
