It’s no secret that celebrities deal with unwanted body hair just like the rest of us. While most of us can get away with only maintaining our bikini lines during bathing suit season, many celebrities need to keep up with their pubic hair on a regular basis.
Between photo shoots and runway shows, there are far too few moments where their bikini lines aren’t exposed at work. It’s for this reason that so many celebs choose bikini line and Brazilian laser hair removal. Here’s what they have to say about it.
When Allure asked Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio how she maintains her bikini area for the runway, she gave readers a little bit of insight into her routine. “I laser it,” Sampaio said. “You just have to touch it up once in a while, but it’s pretty much done. Oh, it’s horrible, but it’s so worth it, rather than waxing every three or four weeks.” When your bikini line needs to be at its best all year round, laser hair removal is your best bet. It’s the only permanent hair removal method that will keep the skin looking smooth and flawless when you need to walk a runway at a moments notice.
The Kardashians have been known to talk about their body hair more than most celebrities and about how the family splits their preferences between laser hair removal and waxing. Khloe seems to favor laser hair removal for her bikini line, according to Glamour. “No nasty ingrown hairs. I laser my bikini line!” She elaborated on her preferences on her website saying, “You guys know I’m not gonna beat around the bush (no pun intended), so let’s get straight to it: I’m all about the landing strip. I like to be clean; I like to be manicured.” Like many women who opt for Brazilian laser hair removal, Khloe chose to keep some pubic hair rather than go bare. Her sister, however, went the opposite route with her laser hair removal.
Unlike Khloe, Kim decided to go completely bare with her laser hair removal, and not just in regards to her pubic hair. She told Allure, “I am Armenian, so of course I am obsessed with laser hair removal! Arms, bikini, legs, underarms…my entire body is hairless.” She even had her forehead lasered when her baby hairs were causing her skin to breakout. Kim wrote in a post on her website, “I lasered my baby hairs off years ago, because my forehead had all these little baby hairs, and I would always break out because of them. I also lasered my neck because I had such a hairy neck. Every photographer would photoshop them out anyway, and I thought I looked better without the baby hairs, but now I miss them. I think they look youthful!”

Brazilian vs. Bikini Laser Hair Removal
When you’re deciding between bikini and Brazilian laser hair removal treatments, the answer lies in the specific areas where you want to get rid of hair. While the bikini line usually refers to the pubic hair that grows on the groin line, a bikini laser hair treatment will cover more area. Usually, two inches outside of the underwear and two inches covered by the underwear are considered part of the bikini line. A Brazilian laser hair removal treatment, however, will cover far more ground. In addition to the bikini line, the Brazilian lasers off the hair around the labia and perianal areas as well. Of course, you don’t have to go bare like Kim Kardashian. Many women choose to leave a landing strip or patch of hair that can be left in almost any shape.
