The process takes less than a half hour in the comfort and privacy of your own bathroom and the only difficult part is getting the hairs right around your ears and at the nape of your neck (which, for some unintelligent design reason, are different from scalp hair).

Some white guys pull off the completely shaved look well; most don't. OTOH, looking like your first day of boot camp is, if nothing else, not nearly as much of a culture shock or setting for undeserved sympathy from those who suspect chemo is the culprit.

As a general rule, the older you get, the younger you look with very short hair. My advice would be to spring for the shaver, try it and realize that if you decide to go back to a barber, you're still out only slightly more, if that, than you'd have paid for that last haircut, tip included.
For some reason, this doesn't work for me. Meaning two hours in and it was a ragged mess. Even my barber has a bit of difficulty getting the clippers to cut well. We agree it's due to the fineness of my hair. I tried doing the head-hair-half-the-length-of-the-beard look. Won't be doing that again.

Since we've temporarily moved on to head hair, let me say how much I hate getting my hair cut. It's too pricey (even at my discounted rate) and takes too much time. I generally go 4-6 months between cuts. That will be stretched out a little this year, as I'm unsure of the politic way to ask "where do white people get haircuts?"

Some more height on that, pompadour style, and you could hang out with my Western Swing/rockabilly friends.

And you people encouraging him? Really. Hugh needs a good haircut, and you guys are all "DIY Flowbee FTW!". C'mon.
This post is not meant to reflect on Hugh in any way but...

For some ungodly reason, my bf had some kind of receding hairline home hair cut tipping point too. Something about dignity; obviously didn't make any sense because home hair cut.

I'm pretty over it at this point but I still roll my eyes.

That's the way this trains a' headin'. I really like my new barber/barbershop. It's like a throwback tattoo shop, only we listen to hip hop.

Huh. For some reason, I was not expecting Dangerman to be an actual bad-ass.

I think that if we got Dangerman, dhex and Number 6 together, we could take over a train or something. Maybe a missile sub.

Shaving cream is a racket

I wholeheartedly agree. I shave with soap in the shower. Have for years.

If you're using soap, you're still doing it wrong according to the author.

Yeah I don't need any extra oil on my face. I'll stick with soap.

After a week, you can even give up the oil and use only warm water. You will find that you will be able to shave ever more swiftly and with ever more abandon. A man can shave his whole face in 20 seconds without a single abrasion.
