Hi,

How do you remove body hair on Photoshop on desktop version? Not stray hairs but hair on the body, like the legs. Thank you.

It is a very interesting topic. Can you show us a sample pic (decent one), because the process will vary according to the type of hair. A tatooed hairy trucker arm is not a lady leg…

I would

  1. duplicate the layer as a smart object
  2. Apply Camera raw filter reducing textures
  3. Apply lighten blending mode

All hairs will not desapear but the result will be more credible. Also mask to not affect rest of the image

What do you mean duplicate the layer as a smart object, how is that done? What do you mask, how is that done?

It is interesting because it refers to what beauty is or might be.

Some girls for instance say that you must be just the way you are and do not shave legs.

Frida Kahlo did not shave eyebrows…

Beeing an artist I have no opinion on the subject as long as you respect the person…

There are 2 issues on your photo :

  1. hair on the arm
  2. hair on the edge of the arm

For 1 the best is the frequency separation. The solution I told you with Camera Raw is faster but a little less accurate

For 2 the best is to select background then refine edge ( blurring + contrast) and finaly use the clone stamp

These fine retouching operations require a basic Photoshop knowledge. Check the docs for :

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/create-smart-objects.html

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/masking-layers.html

Also there are a lot of tutorials on the hair subject for instance :

https://phlearn.com/tutorial/photoshop-techniques-to-shave-away-unwanted-body-hair/

You will find in these several ways to achieve your purpose. Note that your provided pic has a very low definition and is very blurry so it is better to use a clean sharp image in order to do your tests

Hope it helps…

You will need to do a combination af various techniques including a slightly advanced technique involving frequency separation etc... All depending on the actual project (image).
