  • I don't shave my arms because at some point I'm going to get either too lazy or too old to shave and I'll end up with thick/dark hair on my arms. Gross. I went to school with a girl who shaved her arms but she was into weight lifting.

  • Nope..I won't shave my arms.The hair isn't that bad and I am not walking around with whiskery arms when that starts to grow back. People don't like the hair on my arms, there are plenty of things they can do with themselves. For those that do, more power to you. I also hate it when guys shave their arms and legs for the record.

  • I don't see nothing wrong about it if only it could stay nicely smooth from then on.
    I hate when it starts to grow back even thicker sometimes.
    I just do my legs and underarm (sometimes my eyebrows and lip) I am too scared to go down there I just keep it trimmed. That waxing hurts like a

  • No I won't and I think eventually the regrowth will be gross and we will have all these dark hairy old celebs in nursing homes lol

  • I've used the little lighted painless electric hair remover on my arms a few times. I was cursed with pale skin and dark arm hair. It was nice until it started to grow back. Then it got stubbly and weird until the hair grew back out, then it was normal again. My mom complains that my hair still feels stubbly now though, even though I don't shave it off. Whatever, it doesn't.

    If you want to keep up with it, whatever. But it's SO obvious when someone shaves their arms. I think it looks rather unnatural : / But to each their own.
