    What do you think of women shaving their arms?  Do arms need to be smooth like legs?

    I've never even thought about shaving or waxing my arms before, but it seems a lot of my friends are doing it.  To me, it seems like it's unneccessary and not important.  Anway it's enough upkeep shaving legs and under arms,  but whole arms?  What's your opinion?

    I think that if a woman has fine blonde downy hair then nothing has to be done at all.  The hair wont even show up.

    If the hair is dark then it can be bleached which takes all of ten minutes to do once a month and this way it will hardly show up either.

    Shaving or waxing arms, as the author of this question put it, is only asking for more problems such as we already have on our legs like in-grown hairs, stubble growth etc etc

    I think its pretty weird...arm hair isn't as noticeable as underarm or leg hair, and having a bit of arm hair is better than having abnormally smooth arms.

    Some men do not like seeing hair on a woman's legs or arms. But there are some men who like hair on women. In my travels in Europe and in some Asian countries, very attractive, intelligent women had hair on their legs, on their arms (even under their arms). Therefore, this is not an easy question to answer. Once one becomes familiar with a significant other, one can ask him, "How do you feel about hair on women and hair here or there?"

      Unless a woman has really hairy arms, it is better for her not to shave, unlike legs, most women don't need to shave their arms, most shave under arms, but that is a different story for another post altogether, see 'hairy arm pits' on Hub Pages.
