DD is only 9 but very conscious of the hair on her legs (all the girls in her class apparently have none at all and have questioned her) and upper lip is beginning to show....I can imagine that by next year, it'll be really obvious.
It's a shame because she loves wearing shorts and skirts. She's mixed race - Asian and European, with 2 hairy parents!
I've been waxing my DD 10 for the last year (eyebrows only) but tbh she needs her underarms done before the holidays. If they are conscious of it or friends are making comments then it's kinder to sort it I think.
