Many pubic styles share one common feature – that the labia are shaved bare and the styling all takes place above, on the pubic mound. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are examples of a style I’ll call the ‘Leaf Style’, but you might know it as the Teardrop, Princess or even the Marquise. Unlike most of my previous examples of this style, these women have kept the hair around the labia, though trimmed short, to form the shape of a leaf or teardrop around the vulva.

The pin-stripe style, aka the pencil cut, is a super-thin version of the landing strip. Just leave a thin line of short hair, starting above the clitoral hood and rising to the top edge of the natural pubic hair line.
Unless you have a very steady hand, it might be worth using a soft, bendy plastic ruler as a stencil. Any flexible straight edge will do, so long as it easily bends to the curve of your vulva.
First trim your pubes short all over, to a length of about 6 to 10mm. Then lay your stencil over the hair you want to leave behind, and shave along the edge. Flip it around to do the other side.

Vice magazine explores the creative possibilities of the pubic wig, or ‘merkin’, in this 2010 photo-shoot, featuring ‘Tuxedo Pussy’, ‘Carrot Pubes’ and ‘Ponytail’ among others. More of an art piece than practical proposition, since the merkins featured are big, bulky and rather tickly looking, but nonetheless worth a look.
Incidentally, I understand that the merkin was originally devised by 17th century prostitutes who wanted to cover up their STDs. These days they’re more likely to see service on a Hollywood movie set. Or at the Burning Man festival.

Back in 2003 Gucci creative director Tom Ford and photographer Mario Testino caused some controversy by featuring a model pulling down her knickers to reveal her pubic hair shaved into an iconic letter G.
This lead to investigations by the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority, and plaudits from fellow ad industry colleagues.

Want the soft feel of smooth, bare labia, but worried about what the ladies in the changing rooms will think? Then why not try the Stealth Shave?
Shave all the hair from your labia majora starting from a point just below the level of the clitoris down to the perineum, but leave the bush above totally untouched.
Unlike the Bermuda Triangle, you leave the visible pubic patch wild and wooly. From the front, the casual observer will never know about the secret below. But the view for your partners privileged vantage point, it will be a sweet treat indeed. Secret pleasures are the most delicious!

Here’s a Tumblr blog dedicated to “Pics of boys and girls 18+ that have some colour in the hair down there!” The site has many pictures of auburn, ginger, blonde and other colored pubes, both natural and styled. Warning: many large and turgid male members on display!

These ladies must have a steady hand! Here a set of symbols and cyphers in pubic hair for your inner geek. A lightening bolt, a hairy ‘pi’, a flame (or is it a hair’s tail?) and some bold stripes. Go for it, girls!

Circle cut, puff-ball, moon-over-the-valley, whatever you’d like to call it, this round style has a certain geometric simplicity. I had earlier filed one of the images below under ‘princess’, but after having found more examples of the pure round cut, I decided it needed a category of its own.

Here are some examples of a big, bold style: square hair! As with many styles, these women have removed all hair below the line of the clitoral hood, and trimmed the top and sides of the pubes to leave a neat square patch above.
Ok, ok, math purists, if we get our rulers out, we may find they’re rectangles, and maybe the third from the left is a ‘chaplin‘, but what the hey. (Insert pun about splitting hairs, or beating around bush here)

Thanks to a tip off from reader Relaxweb, we have a new style to mention: the ‘Hare’s Tail’. It’s less formal than a Marquise/Princess, and tapered at the top, unlike a Landing Strip. As you can see, adding a cute little twist to the side makes this a playful and quirky style.

I posted once about a rare style called the Chaplin, aka the Hitler, the Dot, the Patch and the Postage Stamp. This styles was very hard to find on the web, and at the time I was starting to wonder if it really existed. Since then, a reader commented that their GF had that style. So I set out on the search again, convinced that more Chaplins were out there. Here are the results.
The interesting thing to note is the variety in the position of the patch. Anywhere from midway up the pubic bone, to nestling right above the ‘front commissure’ (look that one up, or read ‘She Comes First’ by Ian Kerner).
