I’m so excited! I’ve started writing my new song about hair removal and it feels like ideas are bursting out of me. The first stage of composing is always a whirlwind. I’m just going with the flow right now, capturing some melodies on tape and jotting down snippets of possible lyrics.
Let me tell you why hair removal as inspiration for my latest song is such a perfect choice for where I am in my life right now. At times my body hair gets me down. It needs to be managed and tamed or it starts to become a problem. My appearance, personal hygiene and self esteem are all affected if I let my body hair get out of control. Just in the nick of time, my army of hair removal products charge in like knights to the rescue. A trip to the beauty salon is nothing short of a transformational experience. Hair removal makes me feel clean, rejuvenated, attractive, sexy and on top of the world. For a while anyway…and then the cycle starts all over again.
Hair! Hair! and more Hair!
It’s bizarre how it doesn’t seem to matter if the hairy bits are public or private. Obviously my face gets first priority for 911 emergency hair removal services. While other parts of my body can be covered up, I still feel better if I know they are smooth and hair-free. Hair removal is my friend, an ally I can call on in times of need and who never lets me down.
Different types of hair removal methods have different personas. Each has their merits and drawbacks. The trick is knowing which is appropriate at any given time. Oh, how they like to keep me on my toes. Need a quick fix? Whip out the razor. But it’s payback time soon after and I always repent at leisure during the wait until the regrowth is long enough for something more effective. Then I can subject myself to the short sharp shocks of the waxing strips. Hot wax is boss and gives me pleasurable pain. In terms of performance, hair removal cream is somewhere in between but is let down by its smell. Epilation is self torture in disguise. Lasers are the big guns for long term gain. Tweezers are perfectionists making a bow at the grand finale. None of them is independent or superior to the others. I’m hooked and I need them all.
My song is about all this and more. Body hair is a fact of life. It’s natural so I’m not saying it’s bad, each to their own. In my case, I just prefer less of it. Hair removal helps my cause and I champion its advances. The song I am writing is a celebration of hair removal and what it means to me. I am telling the world that I want to break free from body hair and this is how I do it! I’m reliant on the solution but not in a bad way.
Now I just need to figure out how to put all that to music.
