I am just curious what everyone here thinks... I see some women who remove the hair on their arms completely, and some women who leave it alone. I think others might bleach it? Or maybe some simply don't have any hair on their arms at all?

I have very fine blonde'ish peach fuzzy sort of hair on my arms and it's never bothered me, but when I wear a watch or jewelry sometimes it pulls and hurts. Ouch! Is it weird to wax or remove the hair on your arms?

I've got some moles on my arms that sprout dark hairs which I take care of, but the peach fuzz stays.

I lasered my whole body, including my arms. Love it! I never did anything about my arm hair before that though... I don't think there's any stigma with having hair on your arms. In fact, when I lived in Latin America, I noticed many women have hair as long/dark as men's on their arms and do nothing about it.

That being said, having hairless arms is great! (For reasons like the hair pulling you mentioned and also it looks nice ).

i've been shaving my arms for several years. i like the way it looks, and i tend to wear a lot of bracelets so not having any hairs for them to catch and pull is really nice.

I wax, shave or nair it off. My arms look more cut, and longer. I am not a cavewomen, but its all light with a bit of darkness on the fatter end of the forearm by the elbow. Blek.

Not everyone has arm hair naturally. I think peach fuzz looks best at least trimmed down if not taken all the way off.

In the summertime, I tend to shave my arm hair. It's fairly dark and I'm pretty pale (and don't tan), so when I'm wearing short sleeves, I think it looks nicer. I have noticed at the nail salon I go to, all the women who work there (a Vietnamese shop) shave their arms. That may be to keep the filing dust from accumulating, though.

I've never known anyone to shave their arms... mine is very blond so it doesn't bother me. I barely (rarely, LOL) even have time to shave my legs let alone my arms.

I have been getting rid of mine for years-its long and dark and I am fair. I was self conscious about it when I was young. I Nair it off and can shave it when its growing in.

It just looks better,

I know several women who shave their arm hair. They had very dark hair on their arms.

I leave mine alone as it does not bother me. It's not excessive or that dark. I would probably get rid of it if it were.
