How To Trim Your Pubes Like A PRO! 5 BEST Pubic Hair Designs For Men
4 Fun Ways to Style Your Pubic Hair
When it comes to your pubic hair, gone are the days of the traditional bikini line wax or even the full Brazilian. “The trend now is ‘anything goes,’” says Alley Laundry, a waxing expert at Parissa Laboratories, who has been waxing for, as she puts it, “a million years” and has seen every trend and strange request you can think of (like the woman who wanted to shape her pubes into a dinosaur).
“Over the decades, there was the 1970s disco bush, then very tailored in the ‘80s and ‘90s, which then escalated into the Brazilian of the ‘00s,” says Laundry. “Now, there’s much more acceptance for whatever style you want.” So embrace that sea change with some of the fun ideas below (and a word to the wise—for most of these, you’re going to want to visit a pro for best results!).

Yep, even their pubic hair is chic. “A French-style wax mimics the French bikini, with the bottoms that ride high on the hips with a narrow crotch,” says Laundry. “The style gives you a very thin line.” It’s a little wider than a landing strip (a small patch of hair that usually starts at your natural hairline and ends just above your clitoris), but without any worries about hair sticking out of your suit since the majority of your fuzz will be removed (one thing to note: a French bikini wax doesn't include removal of hair around your butt). Oui oui.
“Women use so many different terms now that I have to clarify with each one before I start waxing,” says Laundry. “They’ll ask for a half Brazilian, full Brazilian, the mohawk, the Bermuda triangle, and I have to understand exactly what they’re expecting.” The labels have become meaningless at this point, so feel free to customize precisely what you want. Full waxing of the “undercarriage” area, along your anus and bottom of your labia, while leaving a little tuft on top? Not a single hair in sight? Go for it. Or try the “full-bush Brazilian,” which clears out any hair your partner would have to tussle with during oral sex (just leaving the top of your labial hair intact).

Aside from the aforementioned dinosaur, Laundry creates all kinds of pubic pictures. Her advice, though, is to keep it extremely simple. “It's not exactly a giant canvas,” she says. “The design has to be cute and small.” She has created arrows, lightning bolts, and martini glass shapes for her customers.
Another potentially simple shape is a letter of the alphabet, so it might be fun to monogram yourself—or mark your lady parts with your partner’s initials for an anniversary or birthday. “Some are harder than others,” says Laundry, who once had a difficult time trying to make “DZ” happen—too many angles.

There are several kits that help you color your pubes at home, like the Betty Beauty products, which feature auburn, blonde, black, brown, and even, yes, hot pink. Of course, salons can also help you get the down-there effect you want. Laundry has seen many a wedding special when it comes to colors.
