Spinoff: Do you remove the hair from your legs?

All this talk about swimsuit coverups and shorts, I have to ask: do you shave, wax, or do something else to remove the hair from your legs? If so, how often (days or amount of growth)?

I get them sugared.
I have a lot of coarse, thick, curly hair on my head and my, uh, unmentionables, but it's thankfully relatively fine and sparse on my legs, arms, armpits etc. as well as my eyebrows, and no facial hair (it's my Asian and African blood) so I don't get a lot of noticeable regrowth, but because my hair is black and my skin is light brown, even a little shows. I had so little hair I never used to shave my legs at all, and started sugaring late in high school. I've never shaved. I go for a sugaring maybe every 6-8 weeks throughout the year and over time the regrowth has got less and less. I do my legs, armpits, bikini line and get my eyebrows shaped.

I use an epilatior and have for about 3 years. I used to wax, but I hated the grow in period so I started using this. I do it once a week and it takes about 20-30 minutes. My legs are super soft feeling all the time
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I also use an epilator. The regrowth gets finer and less each time I use it. I use it once a week, but I still shave afterwards, because I can never seem to get *all* the hair out. My legs look like they have no hair after I epilate, but I can still feel it.
Difference is now I can go a whole week or more without epilating or shaving, whereas when I used to just shave, I had to do it every 3 days or so if I wanted smooth legs.

Have tried using waxing strips - didn't agree with me, and far too messy! I also tried using a depilatory cream but they never seem to get rid of all the hair. Also messy ..
is that epilator thing the swirling coil that pulls the hair out by its roots?? Owwww

the yanking out of hair by any means =

I have eczema and shaving irritates my skin beyond belief, to the point of becoming scaly and even cracking and bleeding. If I don't shave, I have great skin on my legs, so I haven't shaved in 3 or 4 years now. But I don't like the hairy leg look on me - and I have pale blond hair on light fair skin. I wish I could just get over it. Is it cultural/societal? (peer pressure's fancy names) So I clipper it off every 2-3 weeks. The stubble is soft and my skin is fine with it. I hate to feel the breeze ruffle through my leg hair

I am SO not hairy on my legs so I just shave them off. I only have about 12 hairs grow on each leg. Which is very strange because I have the thickest head of hair ever!

So I said, "Ack! I forgot to shave my legs, I can't believe it."
She looked at my legs and said, "That's nothing. This is Cambridge, don't forget."

pretty much what Amneris said.. except that I have zero hair on my arms and do nothing to my eyebrows. if I was coordinated enough to sugar/wax my underarms, I would since it is the only place I have ever shaved.

Below the knee it is black - hence the daily shaving. Above the knee it is light brown almost blond so I more or less do it when I remember to do it. Weekly in the summer.

Before anyone questions the "daily" shaving, I live in LA. You never know when I will be able to wear a skirt/sans hose to work. Ever since they made us dress "professionally" vs khakis and jeans, I've found that a skirt and flats is much more comfy thank slacks.

As for the other hair: I am having my bikini line lasered off due to an ingrown problem. Alas, one treatment was enough to cure that. Had I known, I would not shelled out for the 3 pack. The hair obvously isn't gone after just one treatment but the ingrown problem is.

I shave my armpits daily. They aren't very hairy but it itches when it starts to grow out. I leave my arms alone. I wax my eyebrows every so often - 2 or 3 months? Whenever they look to scraggly to maintain on my own.

Any other hair left? Oh yes, I shave my upper lip after I pluck the two black hairs I have. The rest is blond and fine. I only shave it because you can see it when I put on foundation. Before you ask - no stubble that I am aware of. No one male has ever said anything.
Do you know why they call it "PMS"? Because "Mad Cow Disease" was taken.

I shave my underarms daily and my legs (and other unmentionable parts) every other day. Even in winter.

I'm currently getting laser done on my thighs and bikini line...next year, lower leg.

Its the only method I've tried where I've seen excellent results. I have pale white skin and dark coarse hair, pores are very visible. With shaving, I'll have regrowth the very next day. With waxing, I've seen regrowth as early as 2 weeks, and the waiting period between wax appts. just kills me. Waxing was also giving me huge, painful ingrown hairs.
So I finally took the plunge and went for laser and the results so far, after only 2 sessions, have been great. Hair shedding begins about 2 weeks after a session. Right now, I have about 5, 6 hairs on each thigh that are visible. The nurse doing my treatment says I'm the perfect candidate for this because of my pale skin and dark hair. Its still pretty early and I know that its not permanent, but if I can achieve even a 75% hair reduction, I'll be pleased.

By the way, procedure is quite painful, even with numbing cream.
2b/2c - lots of hair, very thick and wavy/curly
I have almost no leg hair. I don't shave my leg hair in the winter. The hair is downy and sparse. In the summer skirt wearing season May-August I'll shave about 3 times and that is all that is needed.

My mom is like that too - she had scarlet fever as a kid and the hair on her legs and arms just never appeared. Weird, huh?
