As a woman (or man) which parts of your body do you routinely (or periodically) remove hair from?

I shave my legs and arms regularly and remove some pubic hair (less often) and some bleach the hair on my arms as it can be quite dark in winter with no sun and makes me a bit self conscious on ‘special’ occasions.. as I’m waiting the required 7mins for the bleach right now I’m curious to see if this is normal?

Legs and pits every couple of weeks. Trim pubes every so often when it becomes mohican like

Legs, armpits, bikini line, pluck eyebrows, ‘tache if needed, nostrils, any stray hairs I find sticking out of moles etc, toes, fingers... We all have very dark, luxurious hair in my family. grin

Legs, bikini area, underarms, eyebrows, tache, face in general.

Sometimes I'll shave my pits (and occasionally pubes if I'm feeling REALLY extravagant).

I used to shave my legs but I had a bloke tell me my leg hair was disgusting while I was sitting in a hospital (I don't have much leg hair at all, really only visible if you look closely at my calves). Since that happened I thought sod him, I'll keep them unshaven as much as I want to!

So most of the time, none!

Just my face. I can't be arsed with the rest

chesterfuckingdraws Tue 22-Dec-20 20:35:27

Eyebrows, 'tache, under arms, bikini line, legs. Brows and 'tache get done as and when they're needed the rest get zipped over with the razor every day.

Toes and top of feet anyone? Or am I the only yeti here grin

covidaintacrime Tue 22-Dec-20 20:39:58

I have hairy toes too, raffle you're not alone grin

Or those really weird long ones in moles!
Wish the hair on my head grew that quickly ahahaha

I wax my pits and bum, shave my chest/torso and keep the front of my bits short. Nostrils, which is new, so I’m guessing my ears will be in the list soon.

I’ve got one of those lumea things for xmas, so quite looking forward to using that.

Pits and legs every other day, pubes once a month, jaw/chin/tash twice a week. And pluck a nipple hair or two every week

Serious question - when does everyone find the time to remove all (or a lot of) their body hair?

My hair removal always end up like that scene in Evan Almighty where he shaves and looks up in the mirror and instantly has the bushy beard back grin

fairynick Tue 22-Dec-20 20:47:39

Eyebrows once a week.
Shave my face everyday.
Armpits every other day.
Shave arms once a weekish.
Legs and bum not too often maybe once every two weeks or sometimes a month this time of year.
Pubes done with legs.
Shave stomach and back again about once a week.
Nipple hair as and when.
Fingers and toes done with arms and legs.
PCOS life hmm saving up for laser

iamruth Tue 22-Dec-20 20:48:12

Oh yes I’d overlooked the toes, feet and nipple hairs

Eyebrow I do daily. I find it really therapeutic.

Underarms daily in the shower.

Face once a month, takes ten minutes.

Legs, pubes, feet, toes about once a month in the shower.

Belly and boob hair as and when I spot them.

QueenPaws Tue 22-Dec-20 20:50:21

Armpits every 2/3 days
Leg hair once a week or before a shag
Dermaplane face and eyebrows with a scalpel grin

Do you pluck your eyebrows @YouBoughtMeAWall?

I just find myself crying anytime I go near my eyebrows, and that's not how I like to start my day grin
(both for the pain and because I always unintentionally give myself sperm brows!)

CtrlU Tue 22-Dec-20 20:52:22

I wax my bikini (Brazilian), underarms, upper lip and brows monthly

Legs - maybe twice a year. But I’m not particularly hairy

Yes I pluck. I don’t even feel it anymore tbh. When I left school I trained as a beauty therapist and we had to wax everything so I think my body was numbed to hair removal pain. grin

I guess its like going to the barber, it just fits in your schedule.

I shave my chest/torso in the shower everyday, it takes 2/3 minutes tops, front pube trim once a week is generally enough and takes 2/3 minutes as I’m not particularly hairy. Bum and pits get waxed every six weeks, I always make it coincide with my haircut, nothing like a fresh trim and a fresh wax.

Frlrlrubert Tue 22-Dec-20 20:58:59

Pits every 2-3 days. Legs every 1-2 weeks.

I'm blonde though, I'd probably do my legs more often if they were more visible, and possibly would have to shave/bleach the ones on my fingers as well.

foothurtlikehell Tue 22-Dec-20 21:00:11

Eyebrows waxed every six weeks - not so much this year sadly
Armpits daily
Legs/thighs every third day in summer
Arms once a week
Fabio/bum crack not that often!
Shave moustache, face and neck and chin every single morning - complete with shaving cream and post shave balm . Fucking PCOS.

Drivingbuttercup Tue 22-Dec-20 21:00:43

Sperm brows fgrin

WildOrchids67 Tue 22-Dec-20 21:06:12

Legs every couple of days, ankles to knees.
Veet for the crotch area roughly every fortnight.
Underarms most days
Big toes occasionally
Eyebrows every few weeks, I just give a general tidy up rather than proper shaping
Peach fuzz from my face and upper lip every couple of months
I have a mole on my chin that I regularly have to pluck hairs from, hoping the follicles will eventually die....
