It is becoming very trendy for guys to shave or trim off more than just thier facial hair. In fact many men have decided to shave off all of thier body hair completley. What do you shave or trim and why?

Just bought some new Gillette Body Razors. An extremely close shave anywhere you want it. Very impressed.

Hair trimmers is the way to go. Saves on razors but you don't get a smooth face.

I shave all of my facial hair because there is a lot of gray if I don't.

Shave my Pubic hair. in 2003 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and had surgery to remove my prostate. I was shaved for that. Removal of prostate left my somewhat incontinent and I have to wear a pad for that. I kept up the shaving as it makes it easier to stay clean. Sorry if that is TMI for some of you but you should know there are lots of different reasons for people doing things.

BTW I also had radiation treatment and hormone therapy and had the cancer come back. Still have prostate cancer and if anyone out there has questions about it or the treatment I will be glad to tell you what I know. just send me a message.

Getting the lines right to begin with was a lot of work doing it myself. Keeping up isn't too bad.

GocartMozart ... Mine stays the same down south all year. Tried letting it grow back in but didn't care for it and my wife hated it. Guess we are to used to the shaved version now.

RenGas,

Not much shaving, lol. I wouldn't think so, hehe.

I talk daily with a friend in Chicago - she says it's the worst winter there in decades. And the stories she's telling me about the cold… water pipes bursting and whatnot, pretty bad.

Anyways, my shaving regimen remains unchanged through our change of seasons, only because our weather is so mild. I'm glad I don't have to let them hedges get all overgrown, lol.

Hey RenGas,

Weather here could not be better, buddy. We in SoCal are so spoiled, sheesh.

How has it been your way?

True. It seems that just shaving clean is less hassle than trying to keep a beard. Well, at least a properly trimmed beard; one that doesn't put you on the no-fly list.

nimravus01 ... That's true. I still have to go in and hit the area from my bottom lip to just above my chin to keep it trimmed. I guess that's why I just shave it all off. A lot less hassle! LOL!!

I enjoyed the beard look for a while, but, keeping it lined up and neat is a lot tougher than the van dyke.

That's a goatee and mustache combined as one. Can also be called a circle beard.

DandeNC ... I started to grow mine back in too. Then we got out of our frigid cold snap and I shaved it off. I like the way it looks but shaving goes much quicker if I don't have to trim around it.
