My Mom Won’t Let Me Shave!

It’s getting hot out and I’m ready to break out the shorts, but my leg hair is way too noticeable! I want to shave, but my mom says I’m not allowed to.

MOD MOD MOD! I tried the advice up here, but my mom just got annoyed. any other advice on how to ask her, please!




Hey Girl! When I started shaving my legs, my brother was making fun of me for being hairy. I explained how embarrassed I was to wear anything that showed my legs. I told her it was more of a self conscious issue than anything else. Hope this helps! xo Lizzie

I have sorta dark hair on my upper lip and i'm thinking about waxing it because it's really bugging me. I was just wondering if it would grow back all dark and stubbly and icky? Please help me! Thanks!! Smile




Hey girl, I'd try bleaching it or researching different wax kits. Remember, hair grows back so it's important to look into what options and maintenance works best for you.

MOD! MOD! MOD!
im not allowed to shve and im going into the 8th grade. i asked my mom if i could and se said NO, that i cant shave until highschool. my mom didntt start shaving until she was fourteen and in highschool and thinks that is when i should start. i told her that im the only person in my class that doesnt shave and needs to (the people who dont shave dont have noticable hair on their legs) she told me that shaving is a lot of work and that iwould have to keep up with it, and i told her i would but she just ended the convo. help please the hair on my legs is really noticable! sorry it is long!




Hey babe,

You can try explaining things to your mom in a calm, mature way and try to help her see your point of view, but you can't force her to change her mind. Until she lets you, you might just have to wear long pants if your leg hair really bothers you. You're pretty close to high school now anyway, so it won't be that much longer!

I asked my mom if i could start shaving through a text. She said sure. Then later that day she asked me why and said my legs arent that hairy. Both my sisters started around my age! She now thinks someone is making fun of me because i have hairy legs. i just feel uncomfertable. im in gymnastics and i have to wear leotards. and then you see my hairy legs. i mean, idk!? help!

love yal!(and gymnastics)

***MOD*** My mom and dad won't let me shave. And now I feel really bad about because in my fifth grade year this boy in my class came up to me and said that I had hairy legs. Right up to my face! My mom only let's me pluck my armpits, and plucking just has too much pain and it takes forever. I'm really starting to feel bad about myself. In fact one time I went to Old Navy and they had these really cool shorts on sale, but I didn't end up buying them because I was worried about my legs so much. And my parents don't know how to take things seriously most of the time, so when I told them that my hair was making me feel bad they still said no. And my dad made this really nasty joke like "From now on we'll have to call you Harry!" Then he started laughing and cried my eyes out, and he was still laughing when I cried. My mom didn't do anything.

 

Hey girl,

I'm sorry to hear that! I say you sit down and have a serious talk with the rents. Be completely honest with them! Don't beat yourself up over having a little hair, all us girlies do!

Bright eyeliner is amazing for summer. Add a swipe of blue or violet to wake up your eyes.
