"The first time I shaved my legs, I wanted it to be perfect. So I shaved in the bath and when I got out, I dry-shaved them again because I missed some spots. The next day I had horrific razor burn all over my legs. It hurt so much that I had to sit out of my school's dance class." -Kirsten H.

"My mom repeatedly told me that there was no reason to ever shave above the knee. I didn't go use a razor on my thighs for a month or so, until mean girls in my school pointed out that I looked like a palm tree-smooth on the bottom and fuzzy on top." -Jen M.

"When I was seven, I was fake shaving with the lid on the razor because I wanted to mimic my older sister. The lid actually came off the razor and shaved a crazy line down my leg. My sister told my mom who wouldn't let me shave the rest. She made me walk around with one shaved line on one of my legs. It was terrible!" -Chelsea S.

"For months, I begged my mom to let me shave my legs, but she made me wait until I started seventh grade. Of course, when the time came, she handed me a crappy electric razor to use. I still had an inch of hair left afterwards. It wasn't exactly the smooth look I was hoping for." -Ginny M.

"My dad forbid me to do it until I was older, but I watched his girlfriend do it like it was nothing. I decided to try while I was in the shower. I thought I was so cool until I ripped a ½ inch strip of my skin off. It hurt so badly. I totally got busted." - Jeanetta R.
