What is body hair?


In this site I will be exploring the possible reasons for why women have body hair and why they remove it. Before delving into the topic at hand it is important to understand exactly what I am referring to when I use the word "body hair."

Normally when a person uses the word hair in reference to the body, the word refers to the hair on top of the head. In denoting the hair on other parts of the body, one usually specifies this hair by stating the body part upon which the hair resides (i.e. leg hair, nose hair, pubic hair).

Therefore my definition for the purposes of my research is as follows:
body hair - That hair, regardless of thickness, length or color, which resides on any part of the body accept for that located on top of the head.
