Have you ever shaved your face in a weird way?

Asked by mrentropy (17188points) February 11th, 2010

I suppose it could apply to anywhere on the body…

Anyway, the other day I was finally shaving off the couple of months of beard my face was able to produce. Halfway through I got bored and started doing weird things with my facial hair and shaving cream. You know, goatee, Hitler mustache. Whatever I had enough hair left at the time.

I never did these things when I had an electric razor, even though I thought of it. I had a fear my razor would break and I’d be stuck with something unseemly.

Anyone else do these kind of things or is it just me?

My brother does the same thing as Pitbull used to do when he has time and gets bored.
My boyfriend just does the weirdest things..he likes to make shapes with it haha :)

I have shaved my beard into sideburns that look like rams horns. If I can find a picture I’ll post.

Haha, after growing a huge burly thing of a beard on your face only to remove it can always become an interesting thing. For instance, you’re already “reinventing” yourself so to speak why not slowly do it in a way that you could see how things would look like as you diminish the fur?

As for shaving weird, I’m pretty sure in terms of angles every man has a different technique. I myself have to do it in multiple angles otherwise it doesn’t shave smooth. On my checks I shave upwards. From my jaw line down it’s really weird. In the middle of my neck my hair grows all different directions and the lower half has to go down and the upper has to go up. For some reason right on the outskirts of my Adam’s apple I have to use a diagonal way and I don’t know why, but it’s the only way I can remove the hair there, lol.

Who hasn’t shaved themselves a hitler mustache?

@Axemusica People’s hair grows in different directions. I have an example of that, but I’ll just leave it at that.

@Axemusica I hear ya. Top of the face I can shave top-down. Under the jaw I have to go from back to front. For my neck I have to go right to left (my left & right) AND diagonals.

@TheLoneMonk That actually sounds like a good idea to me.

One day I was bored, so I only shaved half my face. Perfect line down the middle. Confused a couple of people who saw one side of my face at a time.

I rocked the Hitler for about two hours before my roommates held me down and shaved it off for me.

@johnpowell LOLLL…is that captured on youtube???

It’s kind of shitty that the “Hitler” mustache can’t be used as a style because you’re automatically dubbed as a supremacist. I mean I personally think it’s a ridiculous look, but I’m sure some people would be able to rock it, but choose not to because of what many others would think.

@Axemusica It’s my understanding (possibly flawed) that the popularity for that type of mustache was pretty high until it was used by Hitler. I don’t see it coming back anytime soon.

Now I kinda wish I was a man and had a beard. Just for a few hours of fun shaving times!

@augustlan If this were the 1980s I would make some choice remarks about the East German Women’s Olympic swim team. But I think those jokes have gone out of style, too.

my husband loves growing a beard, and then shaving it into ridiculous shapes. Definitely makes me wish I had something fun to do like that…not much to work with when it comes to armpit hair lol

@casheroo Armpit hair is for braiding :) Or cornrows.

I once shaved my face, but refused to shave my neck. I gave up after a week because it felt so weird.

mrentropy's avatar

@TehRoflMobile Built-in turtle neck?

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@TehRoflMobile Oh, that’s gross, IMO. Even tho I prefer a clean-shaved face, I can tolerate a beard if the neck is shaved. That makes all the difference to me.

TehRoflMobile's avatar

If it makes a difference I was 15, and my hair was just starting to grow with color, lol. It wasn’t very thick. I stick to clean shaved now.

I once used a badger to do it.

wouldn’t recommend it.
