In brief: Ingrown hairs

Hair that is cut short and close to the skin creates a sharp tip that can more easily pierce the skin to cause an ingrown hair.
Improper shaving techniques are the major cause of ingrown hairs. Other hair removal methods, including waxing, as well as common friction from tight clothing, may worsen the situation.
