How to Shave and Trim like a Man and Mount That Facial Stubble
The three greatest inventions ever know to man are pretty damn obvious. They include the electric shaver, the urinal, and the internet. Okay, semantics aside dogs aren’t actually men’s best friend; the electric shaver is. Two things to consider:
1. You DONT have to be clean-shaven. You can even grow a massive beard. Even if your job bans facial hair or has strict guidelines about it, there are always ways around. Example: Go to your local mosque, tell the Imam you want to convert to Islam, and bring the proof of your conversion to your work. They won’t hassle/ try to fire you later as no one wants to get sued for workplace discrimination against Muslims. Then just go about your business like you did before.
2. Stubble and heavy stubble is your friend. There are plenty of studies out there to show that women often prefer at least a good/heavy degree of stubble. Even man-hating site Jezebel agrees with me! Do it.
Now guys who dove headfirst into their dawning of facial hair- that started at 16 for me – were first enjoyed and enthralled. I remember seeing the hairs growing and feeling almost like I had won the lotto, asserted my dominance, and gotten the girl.
Only two years later, I was getting fed up with razors and the constant irritation covering my face where ever I had shaved. Yes, I used aftershave which is a must if you want to reduce irritation afterwards. I only had slight acne a few years back, but it’s enough to dampen your confidence when you realize that girls prefer a face that doesn’t look it’s been rolled around in Poison Ivy.
It was then that invested in my first electric shaver. I noticed immediate results. My face wasn’t getting cut. The irritation was much less, if not non-existent. The shave was much faster and easier. Of course, I always used aftershave afterwards – never neglect that finish.
As time as gone by, I’ve realized that it is still difficult to get that semi-heavy stubble look I’ve been desiring as of late. I had a full beard that made me look like I was from Iran, (I have ancestors who live in an adjacent country to Iran.) but I decided it was time to try out that stubble look which I could only seem to manage well very rarely with my shaver. I went out and got another shaver that had guards with three different lengths.
Shaving my full beard down to that semi-heavy stubble was actually made very easy with the guards. I got an easy all around and consistent stubble that was actually very fast. Results?
If you are trying to get any kind of stubble look which you can easily maintain every two-three days, I highly suggest getting a cheap electric shaver from Walmart which is good for the getting the real close stuff – your cheek for instance – and a reasonably priced shaver which comes with at least three guard sizes for facial trimming and “sculpting.”
Your facial time is now. Carpe Diem.
