I’m thinking of getting my underarms waxed before the wedding but not sure how many days of not shaving it will take to get 1/4 inch of hair? Short of getting out a ruler, does anyone know? I’m hoping not too long since m FI might get grossed out during the growing out phase!

My armpit hair grows pretty quick, so it would probably take about 5-7 days for me.

5-7 days isn’t bad… it just sucks to have to grow it out, especially when it’s so hot out!

For me it was a week or so. But I felt so nasty and gross that I won’t do it again.

@Mrs. Cooper: It depends on your hair. Not everyone grows at the same speed. My hair grows super slow. I can shave my pits today and won’t have to do it again until next week. It would probably take me almost two weeks of not shaving to have it grow out that much for waxing.

haha maybe rub some rogaine on your pits to make it quicker so you can go less time w/o shaving =D (just kidding, that’s probably some crazy health risk)

I was growing them for about 3 days and bought Veet at target to see if that would work. It took off the hair, but it was back the next day just like with shaving. soooo annoying! FI and I live in different states right now, so I might try and grow it out the week I don’t see him!
