Weird question. I'm blonde, so I never really cared about my arm hair. But recently it's getting darker. I ended up shaving my arms with my electric razor. I'm not sure what most women do. It's something I never paid attention to much.

I do. Almost 2 years now.

Did my research before hand. NO it does not grow back in thicker and faster. Hair is tapered. When you cut it, the end goes from tapered, to blunt. So people feel that bluntness and freak out, thinking it's growing back in thicker and more frequently.

I shave them twice a week, takes all of 2 minutes, and the results are super silky smooth arms. The couple days inbetween shaves don't bother me. It's not prickly or nasty feeling. Kind of soft and peach fuzzy.

Had I all the money in the world and I'd get laser hair removal. But I don't. So this works for me.

Nope, but the hair on my arms is very light blonde.

I have very light, but longish arm hair. Never shaved it, though dd has the same and shaves her. Personal preference I guess, and I have seen more the younger crowd of girls doing it as well.

To me, it's just one more frickin thing I would have to remember to do, and would ultimately forget to do.. therefore causing stubble, which, to me, is worse than hairy arms.

On the plus side, when I'm frightened or riled up, it makes me look bigger and therefore a more formidable opponent .

You know - when I had grave's disease I lost hair everywhere.

I really didn't like my arms bare.

I missed my eyebrows more. Now I am so excited to have hair again....except on the face...damn getting old!

I have too much other hair removal to keep up with.

If I had a sugardaddy and didn't have to work I might consider being more aggressive.

I just can't fathom the time investment.

Mine is light brown and fine but grows kinda long . I trim it down but I'd never want to have to do the maintenance of shaving.

Plus I'm kind covered with some kind of fuzz everywhere, if I started with my arms, where would I stop?

No but I've considered it. My arms are really hairy. Fortunately it's a light blonde, but I still hate it.

I dated a guy that shaved his arms and chest and I hated the stubble feel.

I have very little body hair, so I rarely need to shave anything (legs included).
My arms are never on that list.

It might be that this is a concern for women under a certain age? Never even imagined a doing this! But then a Brazilian wax would have been inconceivable when I was in my 20's and 30's.
Of course I get rid of the mustache!

I used to bleach it; I had dark hair on my arms when I was younger and I used a product called Jolene.

Oddly, I have very little hair on my arms now and that little bit is very fair.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Nope and I won't. I shave enough real estate. My arms are fairly hairy, they get blind in the summer but very very dark when I'm not in the sun.

Yes, I do, maybe just once a month. I'm blonde, but I swear... my arm hairs get long enough to braid if I let them grow!

I do not, just blonde fuzz here. I had a college roommate with Spanish/Italian heritage who had very dark, dense hair on her arms (among other places) who did. She shaved her arms and legs daily, and regularly waxed her upper lip, chin, cleavage, toes and fingers. I felt bad for her.

I have dark hair on my arms... and my students are frequently telling me I should shave it.

I don't say this to them... but my answer is NO! Hell NO!!

Why? If people don't like the hair on my arms then that's their problem, not mine.

I do shave my legs because I have hairier legs then most men. I also shave the pits and the woo ha because FWSO likes it.

But I draw the line at arms.

Nope. Very blonde hair on my arms and it's pretty minimal.

Hell no. Legs and underarms are enough for me. I'm gonna have to do something about the facial hair though. It's blonde but it sure seems like a lot more of it since menopause, and I don't like it.

Nope. Legs, pits, and bikini area are enough to keep up with along with waxing upper lip and eyebrows.

I'm not the girliest girl and I'm not in touch with what is in fashion. I thought maybe I was the only one who had never shaved my arms. I think I'm going to let it grow back out, because it is stubbly. It was just getting so long and dark.
