Would you allow your tween daughter to get a bikini wax or a waxing in general?

Her eyebrow, nothing else! I wouldn't let her get a bikini wax. I feel it's way too young for that.

I would do facial waxing if it was needed (eyebrows if there was a unibrow, upper lip etc) if my child asked me.
I would absolutely do leg waxing. I would actually prefer if my daughter started with waxing her legs instead of shaving XD Much less chance of repeating what I did when I was young (dry shaving. O.M.G painful. Left scars, blood everywhere, terrified of telling my guardian XD fun stuff XD)
I feel the same about under arm waxing. I would almost prefer it to using razors.

As for more *personal* waxing, such as bikini waxing, probably not. The only instances I can think of where I would allow it would be if my daughter is very hairy at a younger age and in a swim suit (or something similar) frequently (lessons, competition, etc) I know exactly how embarrassing that can be and that was actually the reason I started shaving (secretly) in the first place. Instances like that, I would allow waxing.

I would not, however, get a bikini wax done professionally. That would be an at home experience that I would help my daughter with, with the intent on teaching her to do it herself as much as possible, as soon as possible.
It really all depends on my daughters comfort level. How she feels about the hair on her body and whether she wants to try waxing (or shaving, or using a hair removal product). I definitely won't force her into it, but I don't plan on denying her either. I see no reason to *not allow* her to remove her body hair. But as I said, I would NOT have someone else do it.

I would if she asked. What if she has hair like me? When I was 12 years old I wore a bathing suit and my mother wouldn't let me shave so my pit hair and pubes showed. It was so embarrassing!

I let my tween wax her eyebrows but we shave her legs and pubic area because I think waxing hurts too much.

yes i would if she asked. i hated having my pubes showing out of my bathing suit -still do, lol. shaving causes MAJOR razor burn and i get red nasty bumps and it's burns. i've yet to get a wax myself, but that's because of lack of money and dont' know where to go.

If she asked I would let her otherwise she would just shave it herself. I am with Stiffler when I saw mine I freaked out and just started shaving it off myself. So my answer is yes, plus I am Italian and very hairy.

eyebrows and legs i would. i don't think kids under 16 having a bikini wax by an adult is really appropriate or legal. i shaved as soon as i got pubic hair though and haven't let it grow back ever.

CoM must have eaten my post, because I posted a question as to what tween even NEEDS a bikini wax? Surely not?
