Is it OK to have hairy arms?

my hair on my arms is dark, so its easier to see than blond hair. I'm embarrassed to wear short-sleeves all the time cause the hair on my arms are more pronounced, should I shave it all off???

It's completly normal! it all depends on how dark your hair is but, if you are really self concious about it you could wax your arms or die them lighter. Hope I Helped! xx

No. Girls really dont need to shave their arm hair because all girls have it. Dont worry about it. Maybe if your really self consious visit a stylist who can make it leas noticable by bleaching it.

If people don't like you for who you are, then they don't deserve to get to know who you really are.

Yeah, it's okay! I have tons of hair on my arms and legs, and I'm not ashamed! It's me, and at times, it can be protective to your skin.

If you shave it off sadly, it will only grow back thicker and darker. I have the problem. Just don't draw attention to it and honestly no one will notice. Hope this helps :) --- Ashlynn

Don't worry about it, it's completely normal. If you shave it, it'll come back thick and dark. It'll be worse.

In my opinion there is nothing wrong with hairy arms. The question is if your arms bother you. People are going to tell you yes and no to this question. If you do not like them and would feel better if they were hair free then get rid of the hair. If someone else is telling you to do it and you feel pressure to do so, don't just to make them happy. However, if you remove the hair, don't shave it. Shaving gets itchy and the stubble looks bad. Wax it. The hair grows back better when you wax. You can have your arms waxed at a salon or do it yourself at home. There are a lot of home wax kits at the grocery store and at Sally Beauty Supply.

Don't shave it. It grows back all fluffy. And people are meant to have hairy arms. I think people without arm hair look some what like aliens.
