  • She hasn't. She is 11 1/2 and she hasn't asked to yet. If she wants to, I would let her start.

  • My Daughter is 10 and is starting to get hair but hasn't asked yet. I would guess 11 1/2 or 12 is when she will start.

  • My daughter started when she was 11. This was when being hairy really started to bug her. My advice would be to listen to your daughter, and if she's starting to feel uncomfortable then let her go for it. It's a small thing and in the long run really isn't a big deal one way or the other.

  • My DD is 10 (11 in Oct.) and needed to start under her arms in April or so. She's been doing really well with it. I just took a look at her legs and she'll be starting those within the next year or so.

  • My DD is 11 and though she's started her period and has hair on her legs she hasn't asked me yet. When she does I'm going to try the buffer instead f razor. Her hair is very fine now. Good Luck:)
