Pubes, bush, and pubic hair are just some of the terms used to describe hair found on and around your genitals. This is most likely the main reason, if not the only one, that you bought (or are thinking about buying) the Ultimate Personal Shaver in the first place. So it only makes sense to start here. Genital hair goes by a lot of different names. It’s understandable that some people are a bit nervous when shaving around the labia, vagina, penis and scrotum. When you have the right tools, it’s really nothing to worry about. With the Ultimate Personal Shaver, there is the added piece of mind that since this main purpose of these units are to shave your pubic hairs, that’s exactly what it’s meant to do; shave your hair, not cut your skin. As long as you take it slowly, pull the skin taut for a more even surface, and follow all of the included directions, you’ll be on your way to having silky smooth and touchable skin in no time!
Vaginal and Labial Area: The hair in this area usually grows in several different ways. The easiest thing to do is to divide the trimming into sections: pubic mound (the area right above the labia), the outside and the inside of each labia. Depending on the person, this can sometimes be a damp area. Before you begin shaving, it’s best to wipe the area with a cloth to dry up any moisture and use some powder to get rid of any leftover dampness. This will ensure a more even trim.
At this point, you have to decide whether you want to style, completely shave, use a stencil (there are detailed shaving instructions for the stencils included with every kit), or simply trim back the area a little.
Whichever attachment you use, remember these key points for the best results.
Penis and Scrotum: If possible, you will get the best shave if your penis is semi-erect. It may seem like a strange thing to say, but it really does help to make all the hair visible. Again, the skin needs to be dry, so add a little powder to the hair you are going to shave. Break the trimming into sections: the base of your penis, the rest of the groin area where you have hair growing above your penis, top of shaft, under the shaft and finally, each scrotum.
This part is important! With the scrotum, it is crucial to keep the skin tight. This is easily done by lightly pinching the base of the scrotum carefully pulling down a little bit, one side at a time. As the hair doesn’t grow the same, you will be trimming individual hairs instead of sections. Go slowly.
The Bum: Not many people will admit to having a hairy bum, but everyone has hair there at one point or another. You may have to use a mirror to do this, otherwise it can be tricky. For women it is usually a patch that is around outside of the anus. This area is easily shaved using the Main Trimmer.
Let’s be honest, most men much more hair than women, so they’ll have a little more work to do. For them, it’s best to break it down into sections also using the Main Trimmer. As you get nearer to the anus, take once side at a time so that you’re able to shave it in halves, pulling the skin as taut as possible for each shaving pass.
For both women and men, after the hair has been trimmed down to stubble, the next step is to apply a liberal amount of shaving powder and use the Finishing Head to really smooth out the area. Use short passes, don’t press down too hard, and listen to the hair being shaved. You’ll know you’re finished when you no longer hear hair being cut.
