Hair removal is a sensitive issue to Malay muslim women, hence needs to be communicated well. Shaving is often a taboo and refrain from speaking openly. There is also a misconception that shaving causes hair to grow faster and thicker.



Astro coined a strategic communication of “Sehalus Venus” (as delicate as Venus) and also appointed Farah Ann as the face of the campaign as she is well received by the target audience of Malay females.

A series of video were developed to debunk the myths of shaving and create awareness.
