Alternatively, you could have the backs of your thighs professionally waxed. This would ensure all hair is removed, cuts down on irritation and razor bumps, and will keep you hair-free for much longer. If you go this route, you'd typically go in for a full leg wax, explained Agnes Gilson, an esthetician and the founder of Waxing with Aggy, a full-body waxing studio located in DC.
"A leg wax would need to occur about every six to eight weeks due to allowing the hair to grow out. If someone waxes a client with short hair or stubble, they could break the hair and cause ingrown hair on your legs," she said. "[Waxing] is the preferred method because it will ensure that it gets all of the hairs, it lasts longer, and there's no mess. [Also], there should be minimal pain if waxed by a seasoned professional."
