I always thought Women only shaved their moustache( if have), legs, and what else.... armpits( Do they?), and maybe beard( if they have some)

But i've started to figure out that many also shave their ARMS???? and HANDS(Some hair exists in fingers and back of hand)?
Also toes and feet?

Some people say Women dont have as much hair as men. But men have hair in arms and back of hand/fingers and toes..so that means Women may have little bit there too.

Oh and when i say SHAVE.. it can mean WAX or whatever .

thanks

ok, discuss

I didn't know that girls shave??? I mean, I thought girls dnt have hair lol.
well I gotta admit that once you get older, there may be some hair in armpits, and maybe some in body, but i'd say that's not really thick hair like mens.

There's my friend.. who is girl... she have many hair in her arms.
okay, by I mean many, it's many.
Even more than I do, and she's 1 year younger than me.
im a male, and even from close, you can't even see if my arm has a hair. but her, man, you can even see it from far.
Sometimes I feel very strange why she didn't shave it, I really think it looks really bad.
I mean, girls with hair is... not really good..

yeah.. that's the only girl I know who have hair, other girls, I actually never see...

I've heard of girls shaving their arms, but not fingers and toes. I can see why they might though.

Bottom line is that it takes work for girls to appear hairless. And some girls go to greater lengths than others.

Girls do shave. On the legs, hands and armpits. But then i think not to the sense of their toehairs and stuff though. Feels a bit weird. Plus who would even bother looking at the toes????Haha..

I only shave my armpit.
i was born without any hair on my arms or legs, my mom and sister is the same way.
i don't shave my mustache because it's hardly there.
shaving fingers and toes is freaky

well as long as u have hair u can shave if off so if they are hairy then they can shave their arms.
i know someone who does it and she openly admits it too haha.
everyone has hair on thier arms but some thicker than others so those who has thick hair can start shaving.
i personally dont do it but that doesnt mean that others around me dont.

Yeah... I shaved my arms, legs & armpits. I do once in a while shave (or pluck) the hair on my toes when they get really long... and I do mean really long in which I can see it when I am just standing and look at my toes!! I know it sounds weird to you guys because you don't have to worry about your body hair. As for us girls... in order for us to appear 'hairless', we have to do a lot of things!!

I shave like my arms, legs, armpits, hands, feet...

I just don't like the feel or look of hair on my hands and stuff. My eyebrows I go crazy with and sometimes I end up over-plucking them because of that haha, oops.

lol hahaha i guess it's because all the girls you were around shaved a lot. yes girls have hair! just less than guys, but we still shave.
I don't shave my arms. I never even heard of anyone shaving their hands and feet though o__o I only shave armpits and legs. I guess it's because I'm pretty hairless.

Hahaa, I shave my arms like, once a month.
I don't like the feeling or look of HAIR on my arms.
Plus, hair on my arms makes it look tanner and darker,
and I don't want that, hahaha. XDD

And whoever said they didn't know that girls shaved or had hair,
needs to get out with girls just a little more often. ;]

Well first off, I think most asian women's hairs are sparse, very fine or there are none. And if you do find baby hairs it's on very soft skin unlike men.

Shaving hands??? I've never heard of hair on hands before, perhaps there are....Can I ask what source did this info come from?

It's normal for women to wax or shave but they don't have the same density or thinkness as men. Some you can't even tell they are there. I don't have to shave my arms.

You make it sound like Asian women of sorts are hairy. Haha!!

Everytime I see it I laugh lol.
I mean, it's really visible, why don't she shave it??? I don't get it.

Do you girls like to have hair on your arms?? coz it looks like my friend does lol, she doesn't shave her arm and it's like... o.o....

Not all girls shave as they dont necessarily have armpit/leg/hand hairs. I have seen some who naturally do not have hairs even armpit hairs. That's why they don't need to shave at all.

this is a first!!!! hair on arms or hands are nothing to worry about. I don't see why you should shave/wax it off. It's not that noticeable at all. I'm very lucky to have really light hair and none at all on my legs.

On hands and feet it's on like the knuckle--there's barely any hair but it's there...hehe. On the palms of hands though, there is none, I meant on the backs at least.

I don't think it is very noticeable if I shave it or not, it's just a habit I have...I don't know about other people. :P

I think Asian places like India/Pakistan and some Chinese have some hair on their arms some hair aren't as prominent, everyone has hair on their arms but it depends on the type of hair. Caucasian women have hairier arms but you don't notice because it's blonde and fine usually. Indian or South Asian countries usually have thicker hair so i notice my Bengali and Indian friends male and female have darker hair on their arms and sometimes unfortunately for the female a lil thicker and sometimes noticeable.

If you look at a guy they can get hair on their backs, facial hair arms legs chest knuckles toes etc, that's because of alot of testosterone (the stuff that defines guys and Oestrogen for women) Sometimes women have more testosterone than needed for an average women, so it may result in them getting more hair for example on their faces (ever heard about women getting beards?) and even in places girls "usually" don't get them like toes/knuckles/arms.

i wouldn't shave my arms, hands or toes because those hairs would just grow back a lot thicker than before and it would look worse...

And SOMETIMES on the fingers... not often, only when I'm going somewhere special or meeting someone etc. and want to be hairless lol.
But yea not toes though... o.o I didn't think there was hair on toes unless you're guys. ^^'''

I only shave legs and armpits. The hairs on my arms aren't that visible so I don't have to worry about it much.

I only shave my legs/armpits.
I don't bother with the hair on my arms as I'm slightly tanned and my hairs are almost the same colour so it's not like it sticks out! :3

in short: basically what novemberbaby said, haha!

For an Asian, I'm pretty hairy...so yes, the hair on my arms and hands are pretty visible. I have been tempted to shave my arms many times since it feels gross to have so much hair. But I never do because I know it'll come back thicker and I'll have to keep shaving it. But I have been using an epilator on my hands and toes recently. They feel smoother than ever. :P

Actually it's a myth, I've shaved my arms, hands, feet and stuff before and it grows back the same--if not lighter.

Yeah, lots of girls do shave their arms and legs. Because waxing hurts, and using removal cream takes too long (you have to leave it on for like 10 minutes and it sometimes stings).

I think I'm equally hairy as you...if not more so I feel your pain. :waaa:
The only thing is that I choose not to shave my arms since I'm too lazy to make it a habit. lol
