    I get waxed to just above the knee. My upper legs are atrocious (thunder thighs!) so they don't really see the light of day much. Was thinking about waxing my entire leg and the advice from my beautician was that if I haven't touched it before, don't - just leave it.

    I used to shave to about halfway up my thigh, and try to get them to wax up that far (particularly just above behind my knee, where the hair has grown back really dark for some odd reason) or get a 3/4 wax in summer.

    Only up to the knee. I have very little hair on my thighs.

    I dont get it; its apparently a 'myth' that hair grows back darker and thicker, so you'd think that if you shaved your thighs, they'd grow back the same as they always were. BUT in my experience, YES it does grow back darker!

    I epilate up to the knee 3 or 4 times a year,bikini area too.
    After years there is almost nothing left.
    I only shave armpits every 2 days..

    I only shave on the lower part of my calves because that is the only place hair grows on my legs...

    The brain doesn't need blood. It just needs to be kept wet.

    shave the whole leg - I have dark hair fast growing hair. I also live at a condo with a pool so I have to do this every couple of days - major pain in the butt. Waxing leaves ingrowns and grows back too fast and i can afford the down time.

    I shave the entire leg. I'm brunette and pale so it shows more if I don't. Fortunately I'm not a skirt person, and I love pants, so it's not an everyday thing for me unless I make it.
