    24 Annoying Things Only Hairy Girls Will Understand

    BRB gonna go chop down the forest — er, I mean, shave my legs.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community the worst parts about being a hairy girl. Here are the stubbly results.

    1. People are always pointing out how hairy you are. Like... I know.

    2. You can spend an actual entire day shaving and plucking and still later realize you missed a spot.

    3. Some days, you have to choose between taming your face, armpits, or your legs.

    4. Spontaneously wearing sleeveless shirts just doesn't happen.

    6. You had to start shaving your legs at an ungodly age, like 12 years old.



    7. On even the hottest days, you've chosen to wear jeans to avoid having to shave.

    8. If you have sensitive skin, trying new hacks usually ends in horrid razor burns and redness.

    9. You always have to let *hair down there* grow out just enough, so you can shave without getting razor burn.



    10. Every morning you decide whether it's even worth taking the time to tame your upper lip hair.

    12. People always want to pet your legs or arms for some godforsaken reason.


    13. And when you let them, they usually get grossed out.

    14. Sometimes you'll come across hair in places you never imagined possible — like your collarbone. WTF?

    15. You dread going swimming, because that just equates to a lot of plucking and shaving every crevice.

    18. Your friends have less hair on their legs after not shaving for weeks than you do two days after you've shaved.

    19. You spend all of your money on hair removal products, and for the most part, NONE OF THEM WORK.

    20. And if a product does work, you have to use more of it than the average person would.

    21. When you shave weird places like your toes and boobs, it feels even weirder when it grows back.

    22. Maybe some days (or most days), you just don't care and let your hair run free.

    23. People who judge you for not shaving are annoying AF.

    24. But at the end of the day you just flaunt it, because without your hairiness, you just wouldn't be the same fabulous you.
