London: Hairy legs are a top priority for British women – except if they are married, according to a new survey.
Four out of five of those surveyed admitted that having hairy legs made them feel uncomfortable, unfeminine and unsexy; while 43% revealed that their relationship status affected how much care and attention they showed their pins. And for all those singletons out there, a quarter of you wouldnt consider bringing anyone home if you didnt have gorgeously smooth skin.
But it seems hair removal isnt a priority once youre married, with 21% of you admitting that youre not concerned with having smooth pins after youve tied the knot.
Hair removal experts Nair surveyed almost 1,300 people across the UK in a bid to find out about the nations attitude to hair removal.
The survey also revealed that almost half of 16-24 year olds would like some star treatment with a beauty therapist on speed dial. Unfortunately, for the vast majority of us we cant afford this extravagance.
So Nair has come to the rescue with the Nair Leg Technicians Consultation, a free online service giving you all the information you need to get your legs in tip-top shape. This simple-to-use free online questionnaire supplies you with professional advice tailored to meet your needs, recommending the ideal product for you. And if your query cant be answered on the site, you can email an expert Leg Technician and theyll get back to you within seven working days. This free service is available at www.naircare.co.uk Its a great way to handle any hairy nightmares!
Expert beauty therapist and Nairs Chief Leg Technician Heidi Edwards says:
To get sexy, smooth legs this summer get yourself into a routine of moisturising and exfoliating. A spot of exercise helps too!
