Ladies, cancel your next appointment to the waxing salon.  A new survey reveals that men don't actually care for Brazilian style bikini waxes.  Instead, they prefer women to look au naturel down below.

A recent poll of 1,000 men found that the men most preferred women being "trimmed and tidy". 

The survey found that 43 percent of men said being "trimmed an tidy" is the best look for women, compared to 17 percent who said they preferred Brazilian style bikini wax and 12 percent who preferred no hair at all.

The survey, which was sponsored by the Australian waxing brand Nads, found that the majority of men preferred their women to look as natural as possible but with a "Bermuda triangle", or trimmed hair and waxed edges and no bikini hair overspill.

Only 17 percent of men preferred the Brazilian, a landing strip of pubic hair, 15 percent preferred the heart shaped "Heart Breaker", and only 12 percent chose the no-hair Hollywood look.

According to the study, the style men disliked the most was the "G Wax" or a closely trimmed small square of hair.  Most men felt turned off by the small square patch of hair, according to the Daily Mail.

"I'd hate my wife not to have some hair, I much prefer her to be well trimmed than sporting some ridiculous, unsexy design," Mark Tailworth, who took part in the survey, told the Daily Mail.

"I like it interesting - like unwrapping a present and finding a surprise," said Daniel Smith told Daily Mail. "I do prefer some hair so a design like the landing strip or heart shape is good for me."

"Pubic hair styles are fast becoming just as important as the hair on your head," said Nads CEO Sue Ismiel, according to the Daily Mail.

"Popular designs for women and it seems men are the landing strip, heart shape and triangle patch indicating some hair is sexier to sport than 'the all-off'. But make sure you know what you're doing as once styling begins there is no turning back."

The latest news couldn't have come at a better time.  Last month French researchers found that "Brazilians" and other types of popular public hair removal can significantly increase a woman's risk of contracting a sexually transmitted infection.

The study, published in the journal Sexually Transmitted Infections, revealed that the micro trauma" caused by waxing and shaving might help the spread of a highly contagious viral infection called Molluscum contagiousum.
