I hate hair and I shave everything. LOL

Head, face, armpits and lower region.

This hairless thing is just a millenial trend. They grew up with the 90's Calvin Klein ads. Imagine Tom Selleck without all the hair in Magnum PI -- I don't think so.

You can either choose to live like this:

Or decide to get yourself trimmed and become like this:

Note: You can see a notable difference in confidence and physique from before and after.

The "trimmed" guy is still hairy, and he definitely still has hair in his armpits.

You see, a dude who has bit of body hair adds a healthy dose of personality. The thing with the one dude above is that he has "too much" personality which can pose a problem.

The first guy is an extreme example. I think he could do the black leather biker look. I mean, contrast that look with the granny sofa he's sitting on.

A extreme example, yes -- but an example for the sake of making a point that a person shouldn't be lax about being too hairy as lifestyle choice.

Is it normal for men to shave armpits?

Is there any risk?
I have no idea what risk there is ...

I have been trimming the under arm area down for years now. Just keep it neat and short, especially in the summer. Personally I think it looks much better - the general consensus from the ladies I know is it should be done.

Trimming is different from shaving it all off. We r not talking about trimming in this thread.

any good trimmers (expensive is fine, but should be durable) out there for armpits?
