Shaving Tips

Thanks to Dave for writing up a great set of shaving tips. I'm with Dave - I used to find shaving to be the most annoying of tasks, and then started shaving in the shower, and it's been infinitely more bearable. I've got to try his shaving brush / cream idea too.

If you don't shave in the shower, you should really give it a try - just stop by Target and pick up a $3.00 mirror. Oh, and you should probably use a real razor instead of an electric one. Just a suggestion.

I think this is the first time I've offered grooming advice on the blog. You'll be pleased to know, it will probably be my last too. Oh wait, one more. If you're a guy, you should listen to or read Queer Eye For the Straight Guy: The Fab 5's Guide to Looking Better, Cooking Better, Dressing Better, Behaving Better, and Living Better. It's a remarkably handy and insightful book. You'll be a chick / wife magnet in no time.

Now I'm done. Really. Done. I've got nothing else. Go on to the next post please.


  1. Be sure to check out the traditional shaving sub-culture at discussion sites like,, and You might find the shaving tutorals on my youtube channel helpful too:

  2. Cool, thanks for the links!

  3. I've been shaving with a badger brush for almost a year. Lauren bought me a Art of Shaving starter kit for my last birthday. While I don't think that you need to spend the prices they have, it did get me started. Now I'm just looking for a good replacement brush. Currently I'm using Van Der Hagen Shave Soap and one of there cheap brushes which you can get both at Rite Aide for a combined total less than $10. While the brush is not the best, it works, but the soap I like. For a razor I like my trusty old Mach3.
