The documentary, "Get Out of My Hair, " engages in the dialogue of hair removal and its relationship to femininity, specifically looking at how the media has taught young women to fear the affects of puberty. The piece features ten women between the ages of eleven and twenty-two with ranging demographics who are all brought together by their experiences with their body hair. Applying media effects theory and psychoanalytic theory, this project examines how advertising portrayals of female body depilation contribute to the increase in hair removal and further align the concept of femininity with hairlessness.
