Male models have three options for leg hair. Quad muscles will be more visible on a shaved leg. If you have a heavy amount of hair on your legs, you can shorten the hairs to about 1/8 inch in length using electric trimmers with a blade guard. This gives hot male models a cleaner look without making legs look too coifed. Otherwise, if you keep your legs hairy -- you will look sexy too!

Shave off any hair on your back or shoulders, including single hairs that appear out of the ordinary.

Some men have a condition where no hair grows on their ankles, tops of thighs or legs due to friction from socks or pants due to friction. This is common and can be made less noticeable by shortening the hair around the bare area or by shaving hair completely to the skin.
