Hello, and welcome to my new blog series where I document my steps away from inveterate slob and into… a better dressed slob. Eh, it’s a start.
Today, we’re starting with my first, clumsy, attempts with a safety razor.
Follow me under the cut!
Still with me? Good
Anyway, this is a picture taken after my first attempts with a double-edged safety razor and you’ll notice it’s a little rough. Here are some things I learned today:
- I don’t actually need to shave every day. Two or three days of growth will protect my face better and the razor won’t just cut my skin.
- Shaving nicks are an interesting novelty. I’ve never had them before; that probably has to do with my usually getting a barber to shave my beard and also letting my beard grow for weeks before shaving it.
- More lather! Shaving soap is nigh useless with out lots of lather, and canned shaving cream is just straight up useless.
- I’m never going back to a cartridge or electric razor. On a good day, they pulled my hair out. On a bad day, they didn’t cut the hair at all.
Here are some more pictures to highlight what I mean:
Next, my wardrobe.
See you guys next time!
