This thesis examines the stigmatization of female body hair by Western media. It has constructed female hair removal on screen as taboo, while perpetuating the association of femininity with hairlessness. Through personal interviews, digital design and embroidery, my two projects, Delicate & Unshaven and Women of the Hair Belt, emphasize that female body hair is natural and, moreover, feminine and beautiful.
