Question: Are women suppose to shave their arms.? Please help..?
It's optional.
I have really pale skin and really dark, thick hair, so I shave my arms. As long as you remember to do it regularly, it's not a problem. :)
But if your hair doesn't bother you, then don't worry about it! Most girls have light, thin arm hair anyway.Health Question & Answer

People don't expect women to shave their arms (the same way as legs) if that's what you're asking. However if you have dark hair on your arms you might find that waxing really helps.

I have been waxing mine for about 12 months and the hair is hardly growing back now. But I definitely wouldn't shave them. Shaving leads to more, darker hair while over time if you keep waxing the hair will generally get lighter and finer. Health Question & Answer

I don't. never have, never will. As long as you don't start shaving them you never will have to. It totally fine having some hair, by all means shave elsewhere but your arms are fine. Besides, people who shave their arms start to look like gorillas before long...:)Health Question & Answer

i dont, i feel that ppl who do, end up doing it for the rest of their lives (because the hair just grows faster, and thicker), so why bother.?
