Leg hair is hair that grows on the legs of humans, generally appearing at the onset of adulthood. Male legs are most often hairier than female ones. The amount of hair on an individuals legs can depend on their ethnic background. People of Middle Eastern, South Asian, Eastern European, or general Mediterranean descent generally having more, however this may also be due to members of these ethnic groups having darker hair. People of East Asian, African and Northern European descent can have very little hair on their legs with some having virtually none.
For reasons such as sports, women and men shave, wax, or use hair removal creams to remove the hair from their legs: see leg shaving.
The current Guinness World Record for world's longest leg hair belongs to Wes Pemberton of Tyler, Texas at 6.5 inches (16.51 cm).
