Aside from French people being slim and rude, another myth floating around about French people, well women, is that they don’t shave! Hairy armpits and legs are everywhere, right? Wrong.
So do French women shave?
Where did this myth about French women not shaving come from?It seems to have originated in the 1940s when GIs were stationed in France just after WW2. Although times certainly have changed, the stereotype is still there.
So back to France, YES French women shave.I’m sure many women choose not to (all over the world) for whatever reason, but I assure you that shaving is all and well in France just like it is in the US. In fact, waxing is actually a bigger deal here than shaving is and salons all over advertise their waxing specials year round. It’s actually quite affordable and if you can put up with a little pain, it’s the way to go and so very French.
So shaving, as with a lot of things, just boils down to personal preference.
