Arm Hair: We Have It, We'll Keep It

The beauty blog over at Shine recently posed a question about arm hair: Keep it, wax it, or what?

Well, I thought about it at the beginning of this summer, as I do at the beginning of every bare-armed season, and concluded once again that I just don’t really care.  I save the expense and mild pain for beach-season bikini waxes, and shave legs and armpits regularly but not religiously.

American women didn’t begin shaving armpit hair until the ’20s, when depilatory manufacturers ran ads for such a thing, basically turning into the status quo.  It just doesn’t seem right that Bliss should be parading around a person dressed as a gorilla to convince women to go absolutely hairless.

So what do you think about arm hair and anti-hair advertising?  We have to admit – while we don’t like Bliss’ gorilla, we do like their Poetic Waxing Kit ($45).

We just wouldn’t use it on our arms.
