It’s a strange but true fact that, while winter means hot chocolate, carols and snowball fights, it also means long clothes–and long clothes are unique allies in that they pretty much give us an excuse not to shave or wax.

The process is personalized for each person, adapting to the kind of melanin in an individual’s hair–pheomelanin in red or blonde hair, and eumelanin in brown or black hair.
