Prior to heading to South Carolina for a wedding this past weekend, I hadn’t touched a razor in over three weeks. It was most certainly due to my own laziness, but it also synced nicely with my preferred wedding shaving tactics.
On Friday night (or whatever is the first day of a two-day affair), show up with a nice, full beard. I’m not talking anything too crazy or bushy. Just a good two-three weeks of growth. On the next day, before the wedding, shave.
Why do I do this? Well, because it gives you two looks over the course of two days. How else could you manage to create an aura of intrigue in two short days, while making yourself seem as attractive as possible?
What exactly do I mean? On Friday, you look masculine and burly and attractive. Then on Saturday (game day), you come out clean and fresh and fly and everyone does a double take. “Who is this guy?”
Seriously, try it. I kid you not, it’s a total power move.
But, back to the matter at hand, by Saturday afternoon, I had a serious beard which needed hacking off.
But, I also had a Philips Norelco Click & Style to look fly for my old roommates wedding.
First, it was getting the beard down to a sexy stubble. You know, something that says, “Yea, I care a lot, but not enough to go all the way.” The styler attachment tore through my scruff and put me at a perfect number one, the hint of growth I like. Then, it was on to the razor attachment to shave a nice line on my cheeks and around the neck (and take off a few of those weird, post-being-30 hairs that pop up in the oddest of locations). Worked like a charm.
Because it was a wedding, and single ladies abound, the body grooming attachment got some use. Whereabouts, that’s not for you to know.
So how’d I look?
It felt kind of like this.
All I’ll say is “I’d consummate me.”
Fill in the blank with your own euphemism for a chance to win a Philips Norelco Click & Style. “I’d _____ Me”.
