My daughter has always had darkish hair on her legs and she wanted to remove it last year when she was in year 6 and I bought her all the hair removal sprays and creams but she was too worried about doing it because she thought that she would get teased for doing it as well as for having the hair (can’t win these days). She eventually asked me the day before she started high school this year to do it and now I help her do the hair removal each week. It gives us a bit of bonding time and she isn’t stressed about the hair anymore. I think 9 is a bit young but if she feels that it will eliminate the teasing and stress that it’s causing her daughter and help her daughter with her self esteem then do it. After all that kids have to stress about these days they don’t need something so trivial to worry about especially because they can fix it easily.
