    6th grade is definitley when you should start shaving in my opinion! That's when I started and I know of some people who didn't start shaving till 8th grade which is late! Shaving is really easy and just be careful that you don't nick yourself. Nair is also great! I love to use it! You keep it on for about 7-10 minutes and then you whipe it off, and the hairs gone. Your legs stay hairless for about a week & it's better because you might not always have time to shave and the hair grows back in a day! :]

    hope this helps!

    instructions.... ok let me see here...

    never dry shave, that could cause shaving burn or rash (it hurts and looks bad) so always do it when you are nice and soaked in the tub or shower, don't press really hard, that will take off skin. you can use soap or shaving cream. go slow, and be careful around the knee area til you get it down, that is where a lot of cuts can occur, also watch out for the back of your ankle.

    I also started shaving around 12 years old. good luck i hope the tips help. :)

    You should start shaving whenever you feel like you need to. Use a lot of soap (the gel kind, not bar soap) or shaving gel and shave lightly (if you press hard, you'll bleed and get red bumps). Go from the bottom up (like from your ankle to your knee, not your knee to your ankle). Be careful around your knees -- they're a more tricky spot. You'll get the hang of it pretty quick.

    Do you have hair where you don't want it. I would not shave until it was necessary. Everyone developes different in the end no one will really know if you are or aren't unless you are really hairy and in that case I would shave.

    No, there isn't anything wrong with it. If you're male, be very careful though. A lot of females shave, because they think it looks better & is cleaner.

    thats when i started to shave. i think i was 12 or 13. its ok now cause its winter and u wear long pants that cover ur leg hair anyways, but i think when spring comes, u should definitley start to shave by then. especilly if ur not blonde, cause if ur blonde then ur leg hair is blonde so its harder to see. i think nows a good time to shave! its easier than it looks, and its actually sorta fun... lol. i didnt cut myself at all! dont worry! good luck! <33
