Brother, can you spare some style?

Keep up your grooming routine during tough times.

In tough economic times it can be hard to justify the kind of pampering you might be used to. You might be tempted to cut back, scrimping on products that are vital to a man’s daily routine. You don’t have to turn your back on a good grooming routine, though, and if you’re looking for work, you might even want to increase your grooming budget. Looking your best doesn’t have to break the bank, though.

Will Harris put it this way in his latest Gillette Pro series at the Bullz-Eye Blog:

…we’ve already discussed in a previous column about how guys tend to buy a razor and stick with it for the long haul, so just go ahead and invest in Gillette’s new Fusion ProGlide and get it over with. First and foremost, it proves an awesome shave, but more importantly in this instance, odds are that you won’t feel the urge to replace it until well after you’ve found gainful employment again. As for your shaving gel and any of the other products with which you prefer to pamper your face, start scouring the Sunday papers for coupons as well as fliers for sales at your neighborhood drug store or pharmacy. If you keep your eyes open, the odds of you having to pay full price for these amenities drop significantly.

Take My Wife, Please (Just Leave My Razor)

Gillette Fusion Proglide.“Women are more high maintenance than men to begin with, so it stands to reason that they’d be that way about their shaving!” That’s a lady’s perspective for you, gentleman. Will Harris at the Bullz-Eye Blog took a look at the differences between the shaving habits of men and women and got some interesting perspective from a woman in the know – his wife!

Try to imagine a guy walking into a grocery store or pharmacy, looking through the dozens of shaving creams and gel and selecting one based on color, scent, and other chemical attributes, then looking at the specific properties of the razors, then contemplating the type of moisturizer to use afterwards. I’m not saying that guys don’t do all of those things – a lot of us certainly do – but if you checked the average amount of time each gender spends on the selection process, the time spent by women is a heck of a lot longer.

We certainly do things differently. Read more about the differences between men and women’s shaving habits at the Bullz-Eye Blog.


Is this why you don’t shave?

Here’s an interesting article on shaving and the future of men’s shaving habits. It’s well written by the reporter but I think he goes a bit too far with his analysis of why men shave or why men choose not to shave.

Even though the tough economy has so many of our brothers out of work , the type of work they will likely get back into will require a shave more often than not. Hey, we all like to go a few days without shaving here and there but in all fairness shaving has never been easier. The high tech razors we have available to us these days pretty much put razor cuts in the reaview mirror. Also, The goatee is now more popular than ever but you still need a close shave around it to make it pop!

I enjoyed the article even though I don’t agree with all of his points. Hey, Also noticed that reporter who wrote the piece is clean shaven in his photo up top!
