Actually, I lived and worked in Paris for almost 8 years and the French (women) are waxing fiends - at least in the big city. FIENDS, I tell you!

My sister doesn't shave her pits. But she usually wears sleeves.

The last two girls I worked with had armpit stubble, to be retouched out later, I guess

Can we please stop the French people rumors? I do laser treatments and many people in France wax, they don't shave as much becuase waxing lasts longer...  oh, and they use deodarant too, many of these hygiene tales are very old school

I adjust body hair according to the needs of a shoot. If doing outdoor/artistic, or shots that are not as close-up, I let my body hair remain natural - actually think it can add to a shot since natural armpits are (unfortunately) uncommon - and create a "rebellious" look. For anything glamour, though, I shave armpits and legs, since hairless skin does reflect light differently. Regardless, it grows back in a couple weeks, so body hair is something you can always work with, remove or grow out as you like.

Every few months, someone resurrects it.... which is about how long it takes to grow a full underarm bush. tongue

Someone named Amanda Peet revived this. I used to have a thing for the other Amanda Peet, so I had to check it out and help with the topic bumpage...

lol... I shot with her this morning! Great model, recommended.

I have no problems with the pit hair at all for art nudes... sort of refreshing actually.

FWIW, all of the models I worked with in France shave their armpits. A little disappointing.

Each to his (or her) own.

I shave everything, head included, because I like it. I sometimes shave off my eyebrows just for fun! wink

I think armpit hair is great.  If you ever need to test your Velcro fastenings, armpit hair is tres convenient!

Not in the fashion I shoot, not in the erotica I shoot.

Growing up in Germany I went a long time without shaving, it wasn't a big deal. Every girl in my ballet studio from 10 to 20 had hairy arm pits and full pubs.

I wish I could get away with that now.

My hair grows so freaking fast that if you were to bump into me out side and say raise your arms, there'd probably be a good bit of hair and I probably would have shaved within 24 hours of you asking.


I think I'll do it.
Just quit shaving my pitts completly.
