    By arms I don't mean your arm pits but your actual arms.

    I was talking to a friend who said she shaves her arms and I'll admit I was kind of shocked because I've never heard of anyone doing that before. It seems like a lot of upkeep and hassle!

    ALSO what do you think of unshaven arms? It has honestly never ever bothered me, nor have a looked at someone and thought "they have hairy arms".

    Guys - is it a turn off to have unshaven arms or do you prefer a low maintenance girl?

    I agree! Problem with shaving is that hair gets thicker when it grows back.

    I leave my arms alone (although I am blonde so the hair situation isn't too bad). Some of my friends remove the hair on their arms and their arms are always prickly rather than soft. I think that's less attractive than the hair tbh!

    It doesn't, the top of the hair is tapered, when you shave you slice the top off and it become flat, meaning it probably looks thicker when it starts to grow back. Stubble also feels 'sharper'.

    I don't shave my arms no, but if they were hairy, I probably would shave them tbh.
