Should girls shave their arms?

I don't consider my arms very "bushy", but I still feel really self conscious about them.
Guys, do you think girls should shave their arms?
Girls, do you shave them? If you do, how do you keep them smooth?

  • Honestly most people don't think twice about it. You may feel that they are dark and not that good looking but you're probably the only one. But ultimately it's up to you, if it makes you feel better and you want smooth arms go for it. If you don't want to keep up with shaving and stubble then don't. But if you're worried about other people caring about it or judging you for it, they aren't.

  • I understand your predicament... I too have slightly hairy arms. Don't shave... it will grow back a bit thicker each time, and when it's in the process of growing back, stubble is extremely uncomfortable. Take it from my own experience, I would highly recommend NOT shaving your arms. Don't listen to the boys that are being rude... you're still beautiful. If they have a problem with the way your body looks, then they don't deserve you. If you still feel uncomfortable with it, you can certainly try dying the hair or using lasers to destroy the follicle, but in the process you're destroying a part of what makes you, well, you. I've personally struggled with that feeling of insecurity, and I still do. Love yourself. I know it's hard, but when you do, you'll project so much confidence. Anyone who's worth your time won't give a flying fuck about something so insignificant as dark arm hair because they'll care about you for who you are and not what you look like.

  • No, shaving is a terrible thing for everyone. If you " need to shave" then you should get the hair laser removed. Trimming and laser removal should be the only 2 options for hair removal

  • Depends how dark they are and your own personal feelings about it - Most guys probably wouldn't notice

  • I don't like hairy arms on a woman. If you have hairy arms them just go to a laser hair removal doctor so you shouldn't have to ever shave your arms again.

  • Waxing your whole arms-from hands to shoulders-will let you feel smooth and liberated.

  • Shave your arm pits at least. Since you have light hair it won't be too noticeable on your arms anyways.

  • I think shaving your arms would be a bit extreme and might draw more attention than the hair you have. If the hair bothers you, perhaps experiment with trimming it a little. Even that might make it look a bit strange, though.

  • I don't and I don't know any woman who does. I don't think it's necessary unless you just really want to have super smooth arms.

  • I have dark arm hair. I personally don't like it as well so I use Nair on them. Some of my cousins wax it off. I personally didn't like shaving. it didn't last as long as the other methods.

  • i don't recommend it. i'd just bleach my arms' hairs, but i don't want to bleach it anymore too, so i'll just wear long sleeves most of the time and accept it when it's too hot for sleeves.

  • I shave my arms, but only because I grew up with very thick black hair on my arms that was noticeable, so I started shaving. If its not thick or too noticeable , dont start shaving. Its too much upkeep
