Anatomical terminology

Leg hair is hair that grows on the legs of humans, generally appearing at the onset of adulthood.[citation needed]

For hygienic, aesthetics reasons and for some sports, people 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 Jason Allen of Tucson, Arizona at 8.84 inches (22.46 cm).[1]
