    This type of question has probably been discussed here numerous times, but I'm new so bare with me! [​IMG]

    Basically I hate having hairy legs. When I was in my earlier teenage years I thought it was 'Cool' to shave your legs... which I did a couple of times. Now here I am in my early 20s with quite dark and thick leg hair which I truly hate.

    What advice do people have about this?

    I don't know if I want all the hair on my legs waxed off completly. I just want lighter and less hair. Is it true that after a wax, the hair that grows back is much lighter and thinner? Would doing that result in leg hair re-growth that's not so thick and dark? What are products like Nair like? Or what are other leg hair removal techniques people suggest?

    Thanks for any advice anyone! Really aprpeciate it!

    I'd personally, just deal with it. I have hairy legs too and was concerned with them for a while but hell, I'm a man...we are supposed to be hairy.

    Get a clippers, throw a 3/4" attachment on it, and try using that. Helps to thin it out.

    and old men have hair growing out their ears and nose. That doesn't make it any less revolting.

    Marlon Brando complained that Sophia Loren's nostrils were inhabited by a network of wiry bristles.

    I've noticed a resurgence in "manly" models lately. Maybe that hirsute '70s style is coming back...

    Was that YSL? I think Tom Ford started doing that not too long ago (before he left).

    Just use some clippers to hack it down to a reasonable length. Waxing will make the hair thinner after about a year, but will not make the hair lighter in color.

    Stay away from the Epilady. . . Just as painful as waxing but isn't over in a few minutes. Instead it takes what seems like forever and it misses alot of hair.

    I mean how hairy? Are we talking ape here?

    Also if the hair makes you feel self-conscious then shave, if not don't worry about it. It probably is not to big a deal to others

    It is okay for a man to shave his legs on the following condition

    1) A serious cyclist
    2) A serious cross-dresser or transvestite

    That's it.

    I think it ok for serious swimmers too, but you're right, anything else well....
