I am a 25 yr old woman getting ready for figure. I have read you are supposed to shave all your body hair for competition. Does this mean arms, back, everything? And what happens when it starts to grow back?

I only shave my arms and legs.

depending on how much body hair you can get away with not shaving, but most everyone that I know must shave their stomachs, arms, legs, and bikini line. Even if the hairs are blonde they will show up under the lights and can be distracting they also are darker when you use protan and jantana. When the hair grows back it won't be thicker because you are only shaving them a couple of times a year right before your competitions. GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY SHAVING!!

Shave everything. Overall presentation is just as important as your diet and training.

I shave everything...but that's just me.

my ex competed in figure and she didn't shave her arms...she just shaved the stuff that she shaved as normal daily grooming or whatever.

I definitely would NOT shave my arms, back or anything else besides legs, underarms and bikini area.

An old B/F used to use Nair. You have to be really careful not to leave it on too long so you don't burn anything considering it's an ultra sensitive area to begin with.
