Random leg shaving question - January 9th 2012, 12:04 AM

Girls, when you shave your legs, how far do you go up?

I go up to my knees usually, but occasionally just a bit higher because I'm starting to notice hairs on my thighs more and more.

Just a random question really

Re: Random leg shaving question - January 9th 2012, 12:09 AM

When I'm not feeling lazy, I'll shave my entire leg. But, usually, I just shave to just past my knee. I hate having hair on my knees because it looks funny. I only shave my entire leg about once a month.

Just the leg during the winter, and the entire leg during the summer. Also my knees, although they get cut easily, but a lot of my jeans have holes in the knees so I gotta keep those nice and smooth.

Re: Random leg shaving question - January 9th 2012, 12:14 AM

I usually just go up to my knees and shave those. I've never actually shaved the rest of my leg, mainly because the only time it would really matter is when I go swimming, and I don't think my brother in law cares that I have a tiny bit of hair on my thighs when I swim, it's not even a bad amount. I don't wear anything that doesn't cover most of my leg, usually, so I don't have much to worry about.

I usually always shave my whole leg, but I only take the time to shave about once a month or so...

In the summer, I shave my entire leg (even the hard-to-read back part of my upper leg!). In the winter, I only shave up to the knee unless I'm gonna be in a situation where I'm wearing less than jeans in public.

Up until recently, I only shaved to just above my knee, since I usually don't wear anything higher than that. But now I shave my whole leg.

I generally do all of my leg, but if I'm away from my boyfriend or don't plan on wearing anything that shows, I'll just shave my ankles so it isn't obvious I'm not shaving lol

I generally don't go without shaving it all more than a week or two though. I hate the feeling of hair



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

I shave to just above my knee.
I have very fine blonde leg hairs so you can barely notice it at the top at all.

Re: Random leg shaving question - January 10th 2012, 08:43 PM

This sounds stupid but I have really bad vision and I can't wear my glasses in the shower (they steam up) and I can't wear contacts (they wash out) so I have to shave my legs in the bath, and I have having baths because my bath is so cramped. SO I only shave the bottom of my legs in the shower because I can do it pretty much by guess work, but if I'm doing my whole leg I have to do it in the bath so I can see it and I do that once every two(ish) weeks!

I shave the entire leg, though if I really wanted to I would be find with shaving to just above the knee. I just like to have the whole leg uniformly smooth.

I shave my whole leg. Something about the feeling of hair on my legs grosses me out.

I'm one of the few who shave their whole entire leg every single day (usually)
I just love having smooth legs.

In the winter, I usually shave until a little above my knees. I really don't like having hair on my legs. In the summer, I shave pretty much all the way up. It's a pain, but I hate leg hair so much lol.

I usually shave to around my knees. I don't really have much hair to begin with (nor is it very dark at all) so I don't really notice the hair on the upper parts of my legs.

This is me also.
I'm usually always wearing jeans, so everyone aside from my family rarely see my legs, & I don't really notice the hair on my legs... so it doesn't bother me. Plus, the hair on my legs doesn't grow quickly & the hair is usually really light so you can't even notice it unless you're up close & staring at my legs.

I usually shave only to my knees. Except when I'm going to be wearing short shorts or it's going to be seen by someone special

It seems like the hair above my knee doesn't grow back as fast - I don't know why that is?

I usually shave my lower leg and my knee. I don't usually go higher because the hair is so fine and there's not much of it so I don't see the point.
