Under arm hair..eww

what is your fav way of getting rid of it? I shave it but am wondering if waxing it would work better, does it really hurt? I like to wear tank tops a lot in the summer so I want to know if you have to grow it out completely before you wax it or what other products are good? Any tips?

  • Your hair needs to be 1/4 inch long in order for the wax to be able to hold. I sincerely doubt you could hold off that long without shaving during the summer:) Good luck!

  • I have mine waxed. It is painful but I find that it is worth it. I do still need to shave every few days but it is only for the strays. I think you should give waxing a try and decide for yourself. When I first had it done I said never again and that was 4 years ago. I have it done every couple of months.
