  • Both... I have tried shaving in only one direction and some of the hair doesn't come off, so I have stubble. The hair doesn't all grow in one direction, so shaving in one direction will only get some of the hair.

  • I go down, up and left to right and right to left. I sometimes go diagonal. It takes a lot of different directions to get the hair off. But, after I spend that half hour shaving, I'm so smooth!

  • make sure I get all of it since it doesn't seem to grow in just one direction like leg hair does. I'd wax if I wasn't such a sissy about it - my cousin got her pits waxed a long time ago and she said it hurt so bad and her skin was red and swollen for days.
