Wherever you stand on body hair, it’s nice to know there’s no right or wrong way to deal with it.

Cameron Diaz on thinking before you laser your pubes:

“Young women, as a sort of trend, are lasering off all of it at once forever more… I just want to say to the women… I believe that if you are doing something forever… it don’t come back and you might change your mind. I feel like you should consider what forever means. Once it’s gone, you can’t get it back.” — The Graham Norton Show, April 2014

Adele on the surprising place hair grew during her pregnancy

“When I got pregnant I had so much testosterone in me that I grew a beard… I only cropped it last night. It’s actually true. I’m not telling a joke… I actually have a beard, but I’m proud of it. I call it Larry.” — Stuff.co.nz, March 2016

Chrissy Teigen on her double daily shaving regimen

“[I] am a twice-a-day shaver. It’s crazy. Like, I’m very neurotic about it. I don’t know why. Yeah, shaving in the bath, or just honestly not two showers. I’ll do one shower and then I’ll just sit on the edge of the bathtub and shave.” — PeopleStyle, September 2016

Serena Williams on her brow haters:

“I went a year without touching them, so everyone was making fun of me, because I wanted them to grow out like crazy. So I literally didn’t touch them for a year, and I was totally okay with it… Thick brows are in!” — PeopleStyle, September 2016

Lily Collins on embracing her iconic eyebrows:

“I think we all want to fit in at a young age and we alter things about ourselves that we think are different to fit in better, and one of those things was my eyebrows. They were so bold, they were very big on my face, and as a kid, I wanted to change that, so I took it upon myself to kind of hack them away, and I thought I had done such a great job. And my mom was looking at me at dinner one night and was like, ‘What did you do?’ And I thought, ‘Yeah, I look amazing, right?’ And she proceeded to tell me, ‘You need to accept the quirky things that make you different and what make you beautiful. It’s the things that make you stand out that make you unique and allow people to appreciate that.’ — InStyle, February 2017

Ashley Graham on going au naturel:

“Honey, I have a full bush. Period. It’s about your preference and your partner’s preference.” — Glamour, June 2017
