Why this thread?  I dunno.  Boredom. Home. Raining.

Do you shave with a blade, electric, or just have beard and trim? Lotta beards out there today but they were quite rare when I was growing up in the fifties.  I don't shave as much as I used to (hassel) so I let er go for 4-5 days and then just lightly run an electric razor I have over the growth to bring it back down a bit. Never liked a beard. Itchy....at least for me. Now and then I will still go hog wild and whip out the blade and lather and get that "smooth shave" look. Now and then. My Papaw or Grandfather used a straight razor until the very end. Man it was COOL to watch him shave.  He was born in 1876 died when I was 12. Anyone out there use a straight razor?  It's a lost art.

I 'shave' with the trimmer... cause I want the shaving cream budget to go towards alcohol. Or pizza. Or vidja games.

I have a trimmer that I use every couple months. I trimmed a lot more before I started taking care of Granny. I also quit getting my hair cut around 1990. It never got to long because of Marlboro, I always worked outside and the wind would blow my hair around with lit cig in mouth, so it was haircut by Marlboro.

I'm also lazy so I only use it when it gets scratchy/itchy.

First heard about it because there was a Barber who cut senators hair in DC with Bic lighter. I couldn't find that TV news segment but found this. I had a friend that was going to an interview and he shaved with a Bic.

I'm lazy.  I leave it till it starts to itch, then I take the clippers (not a blade or electric razor) and cut it as close as I can.  Rinse.  Repeat.

Right now I have a Beard and use a trimmer to keep it at shortish length.

When I don't have the beard I use a three blade razor.

shaving your jaw, weaksauce! 

 

 

 

Try shaving your arm pits, legs, etc.! YMnOqWf.gif

 

Every man should be forced to do it ONCE!  Then you might understand just a little bit more what girls have to deal with.

Have you ever tried hot waxing!?

I suggest you have a few drinks (wine my choice) first so can laugh a bit, instead of screaming.  No, I do NOT drive myself to or from the appointment!
