Apparently Models Prefer To Pluck - Into The Gloss

Apparently Models Prefer To Pluck


Word on the street is that the models for Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 collection groomed their nipples pre-show in anticipation of the sheer tops. The depilatory of choice? Plucking. (We’ve heard that somewhere before…)

    so happy to see a beauty website write about this. can we talk about happy trails too please?

    • murt

      I don't remove my happy trail - actually i have very fine hair everywhere which I don't remove. Nobody has every complained about it.

      I do pluck my nipples though.

  • Clever Girl Reviews

    YES! I recalled that from the Dita Von Teese piece.

  • Neelam

    I genuinely don't understand this. Is it hair on the actual nipple/areola or on the rest of the boob?

    • corina

      Hmmm.... ever seen a guy with hairs around his nipples?! Even guys without hairy chests tend to have at least a few "stray" hairs around their nipples, and women get them too.. however they are usually shorter and less curly!

    i had laser hair removal on my nipples... best decision ever

  • Lera

    Plucking may cause ingrown hairs as the skin there is so delicate. I know, I have a scar :-)

  • Olive

    Ah, can we please discuss body hair? I swear mine grew in longer and thicker after I used Viviscal for two months and it never went away. Do I pluck? Wax? Bleach? Seriously, I need confirmation that I'm not the only one who get self-conscious about this.

  • wilsonq

    Well, I think it's only normal you do that, right? Who wants to see a hair or foreign object sticking out when your nipples are on display (artistically). I as a man do that too.

  • Elle m

    No to the joy of ingrown hairs.

    ITG needs to do an article on sugaring - the ultimate in natural hair removal!

  • thatreadinggrl1111

    YAY! I don`t have nipple hairs...(or any chest hair to speak of).


Dearest ITG Reader,

We're working on something new called Glossier. It's launching soon(!) and we want you to be the first to know updates.
