I've always shaved, I'm a wax virgin as that advert keeps telling me.
Same reason as Rebecca/Becca, I just can't be arsed to do waxing, shavings just ya know simpler for me.

i get my bikini line (and eyebrows, but then i wouldn't shave them anyway!) waxed and shave my legs and under my arms.

i think i might get everything waxed before i go on holiday just because it's easier.

I tried the waxing strips last year on my legs but they were so annoying. They were messy and I had to wait ages to use them. I my try having them done at a salon or something for my hols though.

I always shave, only ever waxed once and it was so painful that I haven't tried it since :eek: I think I might have done it wrong though I'm going to a salon to be waxed before my month-long trip round Europe, seems the most sensible (albeit bl*ody painful) thing to do.

Shaving because I hate having to wait while the hairs grow back so I can wax. If you wax you spend as much time with hairy legs as without!

yeah, but when you are unlikely to be near a proper bathroom for a month?
or when you are rocking about on a boat? don't fancy using anything sharp, let alone a razor!!

I use an epilator on my underarms because I've got dark hair so I have a permenant shadow if I just shave, and I use it on my bikini line as far as I can go until the pain gets too much, then I shave the rest of it. Every few months I decide to wax and do half a leg before giving up because it's taking ages, then I spend weeks trying to remove the excess wax and swear I'll never do it again. But I always do.

Shaven/Waxed girls rule. If you know someone who doesn't, how can you convince them to?

I epilate or shave. Don't like growing hairs long enough to wax. Epilating is like waxing but without the pain of having burning hot liquid smeared on your skin.

Sammy - how long do you have to wait before epilating your underarms again?

I've just started having my legs waxed instead of shaving them and i prefer it. There is the annoying waiting for the regrowth to get long enough but i usually pluck the odd hair that comes back for the first week or so and then just leave it. The more i do it the less regrowth there will be. The bikini line hurts like hell though :eek:
