Can a woman shave?

Yes I shave my eyebrows, legs and underarms I do the waxing thing too but it can get expensive. I'd would like to do my top lip and sides of my face but I am so tempted to shave instead until I am able to go get it waxed.
What would you do I hate hair on places I don't want it.
Thanks Ladies!

  • I wax only - I rarely shave unless I'm really pressed for time. For, uh, sensitive areas I go to the salon but I also wax my legs and underarms at home. The at home isn't that expensive.

  • I've always heard that when women shave their face the hair just grows back faster and thicker....I don't know if that's true but I've always heard it

  • I shave my under arms, legs, down there and also my face but I have put shaving creme on my face. After I'm done shaving my under arms I dip the razor in water and shave the unwanted facial hair off my face and shave my brows. I have been doing this for year and nope my hair doesn't come back in faster or thicker.

  • do not shave your face!

  • do not shave your upper lip unless you want a mustache, i'm serious-- eventually the way the hair grows back on that area it will be a mustache b/c you'll have to shave it every day and will get a five o'clock shadow. just go buy pre-waxed strips and do it yourself. it's cheap and easy.
