The Art of Shaving

( 2 )

Overview

The average man will shave approximately 20,000 times over the course of his life, spending the equivalent of 139 full days doing it. He will shave off 27 feet of hair, from a total of 30,000 whiskers on his face. And he will probably be doing something wrong.

Overview

The average man will shave approximately 20,000 times over the course of his life, spending the equivalent of 139 full days doing it. He will shave off 27 feet of hair, from a total of 30,000 whiskers on his face. And he will probably be doing something wrong. So he’ll suffer nicks and cuts, ingrown hairs, and rashes; his five-o’clock shadow will arrive before lunch, his neck will be irritated and red, and he’ll get razor burn. Instead of reaping the benefits of a daily grooming regimen, he’ll only suffer. Needlessly.

The Art of Shaving will solve his problems (as well as the related problems of anybody whose cheek gets burned by his razor stubble). He’ll choose the correct brush and razor and blade; he’ll take more time lathering up properly and less time tending to bloody shirt collars. He’ll feel better and look better. And he’ll adjust his perception of this morning ritual, bringing art and passion to a daily routine.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Ask a man about his earliest or most significant memory of bonding with his father, and very likely, he'll mention watching Dad shave and dreaming of one day doing the same. The husband-and-wife team that brought style to this largely unexamined daily ritual with swanky boutiques called The Art of Shaving now offers this slim, attractive, identically titled book. The book recounts the history of shaving, provides a primer on skin care, and details the tools and techniques that render the best results, making it ideal for any man who savors a smooth, close, nick-free shave.

    Good for 1st time shaver

    Good book for a teenage boy just learning to shave, or a 20-something that is having shaving difficulties like ingrown hairs.
