    I don't want to be completely hairless, but being all Italian, my leg hair can get a little out of control. There's not a ton of hair, it's just that the hairs long, and when my hair gets long it gets sort of wavy and rather than just staying flat it sticks out. I want to trim the hair on my legs and chest without completely getting rid of all of it (although I may decide to go hairless on my chest eventually, but never my legs). I also have dark hair, which makes it look like there is more hair on my body than there actually is.

    Can anyone recommend a good trimmer?

    The Norelco BodyGroom is one that I was using when arm & back hair was getting too heavy and long. (Cancer radiation treatment has subsequently eliminated most of my body hair, at least for the present)

    But I still need it for underarm hair that seems to never stop growing, to shocking lengths that stick out past my T-shirt sleeves. Ewwww...

    Other possibilities are beard trimmers that come with different length combs, or can adjust their trimming length internally. That way you could also trim a beard and mustache, if you decide to grow facial hair.

    No body hair trimmer icon_twisted.gif

    I'm Italian too, so I know. I tried shaving my body hair once or twice but never again. I tweeze the random hairs that are much longer than the rest.
    Some people think its sexy, including me. Hairy legs give me life.

    Im not too hairy but sometimes I get those long hair in my legs too, so Ive been using the Norelco Body Groomer in the level 1 for a while and it works great, also I use it on my chest.

    I picked up a little cordless Wahl body groomer at Costco on impulse. It works pretty well and comes with sets of combs to control the length of the cut, as well as several different cutting heads, that snap on, including a nose-hair trimmer. The Li-Ion battery is amazing: I've recharged it maybe once or twice a year.

    For back hair, only the articulating ManGroomer will do. (Or a cute partner to help out back there.)

    WTF?

    I had a goatee; it wasn't hard to keep it correctly trimmed.

    Clearly that's a product for a generation that was never taught to stay inside the lines when coloring...

    The Wahl looks great. I use the Norelco. Does what I need. Much cheaper.
