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 typically have more, however this may only appear to be true 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.
