Shaving all over

Have any of you tried, or seriously thought about, shaving everything from the top of your head to your toes (head, face, entire body - maybe even eyebrows)? If you have, did you like the result and what reaction did you get from others?

If you haven’t, would you consider it or where would you draw the line?

That’s a good question. I draw the line at my eyebrows. That would be a little “over the top.” I do shave my head though. Nothing so radical about that anymore thanks to Michael Jordan.

I don’t have much hair at all on my feet so a few quick passes with the razor takes care of that.


Hi quincunx

I have done this twice, but left my head hair and eyebrows alone. I didn’t shower in view of other guys so I can’t really say how people would react. Because I just went about in shorts and tee shirts as normal nobody really noticed. It did feel very comfortable though.


Hi quincunx,

I have shaved my chest, pits, upper arms and legs and done some trimming on my lower arms and “down under”. I would draw the line at my shaving my head and eyebrows–I don’t really like the shaved head look and I think that having no eyebrows would be pretty weird!

As far as comfort goes–getting rid of chest, armpit hair and leg hair feels great!


I am currently shaved all over. I shave my head and face, arms and armpits, chest, pubic area, and legs. the only body hair i have is my eyebrows. I think that I’d look funny with out eyebrows. They help with expression and such. I love it!!! If you are interested, try it at least one. If you don’t like it, it will always grow back. One thing to note though, not everyone looks good with their head shaved… some heads are funny shaped or have scars. think about that before you shave your head. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> [color:“blue”] [/color]

Good to hear that you are shaved all over. Why not try shaving your eyebrows too? I agree that it is a little unusual - but it would make you feel really hairless! I’ve shaved from head to toe for nearly 4 years (including eyebrows for the last 2 years)and won’t go back to having hair - or eyebrows. I love having no hair!

i feel the “no eyebrow” look completely changes the look of your face and would make most people look unnatural and somewhat scary. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> just my personal opinion. i always notice the girls that shave their eyebrows off and draw them on and do not understand it because i think it makes them look somewhat evil and unattractive. to each its own i guess.

It should also be noted that eyebrows DON’T always grow back when you shave them. This is serious enough a possibility that Bob Geldof was given a One Million Pound Loyds of London Insurance Policy against his eyebrows not growing back after shaving them for a scene in the movie Pink Floyd’s The Wall. They grew back, although he did get a permanent scar from the bare razor used in the scene.

You really have to be careful if you’re thinking of shaving your entire body. Like someone already mentioned, if you shave your eyebrows they may never actually grow back.
