Dreaded Shaving Question?!?(3 posts)

Dreaded Shaving Question?!?kushogun
Feb 9, 2003 9:45 PM
Ok, so I have dark hair. Somewhere along the lines of an inhabitant of the Basque region (Spain). Anyhow, last season I shaved my legs, but no matter how hard I tried, I could never get that silky smooth look that all us "shavers" seek to attain. I always could see tiny little black marks against my tan skin. Any tips? How to the pros look so polished all the time? Do they go as far as waxing? Or even electrolysis (sp?). Sorry to bring this up, but I was curious, bored, and ready for some serious early spring racing, so I thought any tips on this matter would be great to have before the tights come off.

I just shaved for the first time about 1 1/2 weeks ago..I have darker hair too (but a middle complextion..family is from Eastern Europe back in the day). I have the same thing (so does my wife and she's been shaving waaay longer than me..she says you have to wax..what you're seeing is the follicle under the skin..if you don't want to see it, you've got to get it completely out...sorry
