    For all the broly's on here who shave their chest, stomach, and back... when you shave how long does it take to grow back? How long does it take before you get a "5 oclock shadow" on your chest with stubbly and prickly hair? How long are you totally smooth for before you have to shave again?

    I'm kinda hesitant about shaving my stomach though, because the hair on my stomach covers up my stretch marks from when I was a fatty :o. What's more unattractive, hairy stomach or stretch marks? :o :wtc: would it look "normal" if I shaved my chest but not my stomach? :hsughno:

    I am not really that hairy on my mid-section. None on back, and the only thing on my stomach is a treasure trail. However I do have chest hair, which I shave. I would say that after shaving it takes about 2 days before I get a stubble/shadow and about 6-8 days before it needs to be shaven again.... But again, I am not really all that hairy.

    Damn, i'm like a gorilla... I couldn't imagine having to shave my back every week. I was hoping it grew back extremely slowly to the point where i'd only have to do it on a monthly basis.

    I suck it up and go to the spa. A wax every 6 weeks. It's not that bad.

    Listening to Metallica/Chevelle/Tool is really relaxing when having your hair ripped out :o

    it works like every other hair, you'll probably have to shave bi-daily to have it look decent

    How much do they charge you. I'm thinking about going this route instead of worrying about ingrown hairs and other assorted shaving bs. What all do you get done?

    I really don't have much back hair, just some lower back goodness. I was wondering about the chest - pubes cost.

    Either I have my wife nair my back or I get it waxed. This is getting more frequent, however. Used to be once every 6 weeks or so.. Now its every 3 weeks..

    I bald everything about once every 4 weeks. I hate shitting through a screen door, and never really learned how to just trim the pubes, so they all come off.

    Full Back, Full Arms & Chest/Abs for $130 Cnd after taxes. With tip, $150. Takes about 90 mins. I find it a mild pain. More like a slight slap i guess.
