For all the men out there, we’ve decided to start our site with a post on shaving. Not just any kind of shaving though, shaving like a boss!
What does that mean?
It means keeping it old school, using a straight razor, or a safety razor if you must.
Now, shaving with a Mach 3 or similar “cartridge blade” is hardly getting beat like you stole something, but we feel that talking about the proper way to shave is very gentlemanly, and high class.
Therefore, it’s worth of being included on this site simply because of our ethos: To make sure you excel in everything.
When it comes to grooming, fashion, and shaving, there’s no closer thing to excellence than using a proper cut-throat razor.
It’s not only macho, cool, and more fun, but the better straight razors actually provide a much superior shave.
Despite the advertising companies telling us otherwise, the newest razors are just not up to standards when it comes to a closer shave.
They DO allow us to shave more quickly and easily, while avoiding razor burn and nasty cuts, but they rarely do a better job of the actual shave.
If you’ve got time on your hands, you really ought to investigate some of the more traditional shaving methods.
Here’s a video showing the top ten reasons to shave with a straight razor.
Pretty compelling stuff right?
Grooming is important
If you really do want to excel at things, then taking care of yourself and grooming yourself properly is important. People who look better, tend to be liked more, and get more opportunities too.
This is the first step in avoiding getting beaten.
This also applies to women, but as a generalization, women are usually much more aware of this, and taking good care of their physical appearance comes more naturally to them.
As well as shaving, pay attention to how you dress, how you style your hair, and your posture. Remember to stand up straight!
Getting Started Shaving With A Cut Throat Razor
So if you’re ready to learn more about shaving like a boss, there are some great articles here. You can also just buy one and try it, but it’s definitely recommended that you don’t invest in a particularly expensive one straight away.
Some people recommend using a “safety razor” as a stepping-stone, but they themselves are very different from straight razors, so it’s almost an added step rather than a transitional one.
Either way, it’s definitely worth doing some more investigating and experimenting.
