Shave: When the hair is dark and long. Then it's time to break out the first razor. I got my first razor when I was 12. I was thinking to introduce my oldest to shaving around the age of 10. I'm just going based off of when I got these things. I needed a razor long before I was allowed to shave.



Makeup: I was allowed to wear it when I was 16... My parents were ultra strict. I let my 6 year old play with makeup, but not wear it in public.



I also got my daughter a couple training bras just for fun. I figured that it would be easier to get her to wear one when she actually needed one if I started the training a bit early. I didn't get that until I was 9 and I was already a B cup :/

Yea, I think that is a good age. Like youur maturing and you can look forward to it. I hope she sees that I don't overdo it and she learns from that, but I can guarantee she won't go out looking like a clown! lol

Make up- a little here and there won't kill her. She may not even care for it too much because I never wear make-up, along with every other woman in our families lol.



Shaving- when she needs to. My mom didn't let me until I came home crying because kids at school were making fun of me. My family's hairy and I'm white as a ghost with black hair. It was bad. I don't want her to have to get to that point.

I always said 14 for shaving and make-up. We made it to 11 : ( You learn to pick your battles at some point : )

I think I wont let her wear make-up until she's 16.. maybe foundation and mascara in middle school if she has bad acne and is being made fun of for it...



I wont let her shave until middle school at the soonest if they need to dress out for PE or dance.

13ish. because that's how old I was. lol I guess it depends on my kids. if she needs to be shaving at 12 then ok. make up will have some rules. natural colors only, no eyeliner and no red or dark lips.

I wouldn't want my daughter to shave, because I don't. And I like that i don't feel the need to. But society has "rules", so I might talk to her at like 12-13. This is a future unborn daughter I speak of though, who knows when I actually have one.

I was alo to shave when I was 14 :/ and I wore makeup from age 12. How about introducing nair hair removal cream. I know it's available in uk not sure about anywhere else. It's basically If you don't want them shaving then they can use that on their legs, arms ect.
