    I have beastly arm hair. It’s disgusting. But I don’t do anything to it. Shaving grosses me out because I do not want prickly arms. In the summer it turns blond from the sun so it’s not as noticeable (thank god). I know it’s not really lady like, but I just blame my Italian heritage. ha.

    I didn’t notice my arm hair until this post so I plan to ignore it on my wedding day too 🙂

    I shave it everyday, it doesn’t have time to get prickly..I hate the way it looks. I’ve been shaving it for 9 years.

    I’m a shaver…my sister thinks it is so weird but I know she’s oddly interested!

    I don’t do anything, but I just have blond fuzz and don’t notice it unless it’s sunny out.

    I have arm hair; it’s not out of control. But it’s there.

    I decided that I already deal with my legs, bikini, eyebrow, and upperlip and it was easier to make peace with the arms than to add it to the list of maintenance.

    I don’t do anything to it, but I have been considering lasering it off. I may try waxing it since that’s not too drastic (or expensive). Bleaching isn’t an option since blonde hair isn’t natural on Asians.

    I leave mine alone. It’s blonde. I really don’t even think about it! Now I’m wondering if I should get rid of it?

    If you do anything, wax it.  It’s always noticeable when people shave their arms – even to guys.  I go au natural but when I worked at a salon I would wax it now again and loved the way it felt.

    I shave it. I’ve been doing it since I was about 13, it was so hairy and embarassing. The whole “it will grow back faster and thicker” is total BS. I only do it every 6 weeks or so, even then it barely grows back.

    I also don’t think it’s noticable. People have been stunned when I’ve said I do it. Fiance never even noticed that I did it until recently.
