Watch These Guys Wax Their Legs In Slow-Motion

Women are goddesses.

Not because of our hourglass shapes or any of that nonsense, but mostly because we put up with so much. Life serves us uterine lining and menstrual cramps on a plate, so we deal with it. Push human children out of our vaginas? Sure, why not.

Most interesting, though, are the things we do for beauty.

Waxing, shaving and laser hair removal are all part of the average woman's routine. Spending an extra 20 minutes in the shower every day to make sure I don't look like a lady wolverine is fine by me.

Ever wondered what that might look like from a closer perspective?

YouTube duo The Slow Mo Guys recently posted a video showing what slow motion leg waxing looks like, and it's quickly going viral.

It's oddly fascinating to watch each individual hair snap out of its place with an audible thunk that will send chills up your spine.

Buddies Gavin Free and Daniel Gruchy shot the impromptu waxing session at 28,000 frames per second, which means you can see every hair and follicle clearly.

This clip makes it obvious why waxing feels so painful the moment after it's done. The skin pulls along with the hair, snapping back like a particularly sad rubber band.

Ever wondered why waxers recommend you trim your pubic hair to a quarter of an inch before getting a Brazilian wax? It's clear from the video: The longer the hair is, the more it pulls.

After watching this, I'm ready to hide in my bed all winter without ever once visiting a salon for grooming. Leg hair exists for a reason, after all: to keep me warm when it's frigid outside.

Just try tackling your eyebrows or woman 'stache without picturing this video, I dare you. It's like a real-life nightmare.
