Girls, grab a pen and write this one down.
Apparently it’s no longer enough that you shave your legs, wax your bits, pluck your eyebrows and zap your underarms.
It’s now time to add ‘arms’ to that growing list of money-sucking beauty routines.
Yep, according to The Stir getting rid of all the hair on you arms is now something people do as regularly as they remove every other hair on their body.
So apparently arm shaving is a thing. Not armpit shaving, but full on arm shaving. Ladies, knock it off, mmmkay? I already spend a ridiculous amount of time shaving, waxing, plucking, coloring, or otherwise removing or changing every hair on my body. Arm hair is the one thing I’ve never even thought to worry about.
And I’m not about to start either. Seriously you guys, please don’t make this a trend. Daily shaving of the legs and pits if I don’t want to be all prickly is bad enough. Arms? Just say no.
I witnessed this arm waxing trend firsthand a couple of weeks ago when I was sitting at my local nail place in Newtown. During the 45 minutes I was there, four girls walked past me and straight into the waxing rooms.
