How to Shave Like a Man

Whether you're running a seminar or meeting a new client for the first time your appearance matters, and when we're talking about appearance it's attention to detail that separates you from the rest.
As Conor McGregor said 'fashion is like fighting, it's all about the precision, the attention to detail.'.

If you're not rocking a badass beard your next best be is to go clean-cut.

When you're going clean-cut an electric shaver will not do.

"SJ, what's wrong with using an electric razor or cheap disposable?"

You will not and cannot get a precise, high quality shave with an electric razor or bulk pack of disposable razors.

In order to shave like a man and get great results you must invest in great tools. These tools will last you a lifetime provided you look after them.
These tools will, over time work out to be cheaper than constantly buying new electric razors and packs on packs of disposables.

Here's What You'll Need...

My Step-By-Step Guide On How to Shave Like a Man

#1 - Shower

Before we start prepping our razor or brush it's essential you have a hot shower first.
This opens up your pores and cleans your face, prepping for the shave.

#2 - Insert Fresh Blade

Do not re-use your blades, after a great shave they'll begin to blunt.
You won't receive the same great shave next time and you'll be more susceptible to cutting yourself.

#3 - Wet Your Whiskers

Run your badger hair brush under some hot water.
Proceed to brush the hot water over your face and neck.

#4 - Prepare Your Cream & Brush

Once your badger hair brush has been run under some hot water and your face is wet it's time to get started!
Place a generous amount of your shaving cream in a shaving mug or coffee cup.
Swish the warm badger hair brush around in your shaving cream, creating a paste.

#5 - Lather Your Face

Begin to lather your face with the shaving cream on your badger hair brush.
Be meticulous, if you rush the lathering you're going to end up with an inferior shave and will be more likely to nick yourself.
Lather up.

#6 - Downward Strokes

Grasp the fine piece of engineering that is your old school safety razor. Begin to shave in careful downward strokes.
Do not shave upward and do not shave horizontal.
Shave with precise downward strokes ONLY, going over your cheeks and sideburns twice if need be, to avoid getting lumps and bumps on your neck I recommend only going over your neck once.

#7 - Post Shave

Once you're happy with the quality of your shave it's time to wrap it up. Jump in the shower again or rinse your face with hot water from your bathroom sink before applying an aftershave of your choice. Here's the one I use.

Remember to clean your trusty tools immediately and they'll last you forever.

I’m SJ. I’m a fitness enthusiast and published author. I transformed my body from a skinny fat 135lbs with 18% body fat to a solid 192lbs at 8% body fat. I became qualified in a field I was passionate about. I founded several online businesses that allow me to pursue ideas and projects in my life that I am passionate about without having to constantly worry about money. I published several eBooks explaining the training and dieting techniques I used to achieve the body I have today. I learnt a plethora of new information on dieting and fitness by reading and applying what I read, to find out what does work and what doesn’t work, because as I’m sure you’ve noticed the health and fitness industry is full of non-sense claims and BS. I found out what was true and what worked for me and applied that knowledge. And you bet I had fun during the whole process.
