Dumb question re shaving!

My mom never showed me how to shave, I just figured it out on my own but last night I was showing my stepdaughter how to shave and it occurred to me that I don't even know if I do it right! Do you shave your whole leg? Or do you shave just the calf?

I know women you only shave to the knee and women you shave almost the whole leg

I just shave to the knee because I don't have any visible hair on my thigh so it seems like unnecessary work (lol).

I shave from ankle to hip every single day of my life.  Gotta love having dark hair on the legs.  Sometimes in the winter I'll get lazy and only shave to the knee.  Honestly, if her hair is light colored and fine above the knee, then I wouldn't worry about having her shave it.

I shave only to right above my knee. The hair on my thighs are not noticeable and I don't see the point in doing it that fair up.

By the way, good luck in showing her. She is lucky to have you to help her with it.

 Depends on if you can see the hair you don't want it to grow back thicker and darker.....

I shave almost whole leg but not really cause I shave to where my shorts line is pretty much:)

It would depend on her coloring I guess. I shave my whole leg but I go alot longer in between shaving my thighs cause it doesn't grow as fast

I shave where there is hair. lol  my hair is super blonde and pretty sparse on my legs, but I do have some a bit above my knee, so I just shave where I see hair.
