Shaving is the practice of removing body hair using a razor[?].

Shaving is a common method of depilation, and is most commonly used by men to shave their facial hair, and by women to shave their leg hair.

Some hold the belief that, once shaving commences, the hair will grow out more thickly. However, this is a myth. The resulting stubble only makes the hairs seem to be thicker.

Shaving can be done with an electric razor or a regular, manual one. If a non-electric razor is used, some lathering agent such as soap or a special "shaving cream" or foam should be applied to the area to be shaved first, if a painful razor burn is to be avoided.
