  • Practice Makes Perfect
  • Have Patience


Establishing A Routine

One of the most important steps when it comes to shaving is establishing the right routine. Many people find themselves shaving whenever it’s most convenient for them. This can lead to irregular shaving schedules, which in turn leads to different facial hair growth patterns. You should be aware of the rate at which your facial hair grows, and establish a set time and date to sit down and shave. Those who prefer to be cleanly shaven should shave every one to two days. This requires little to no time as your face is barely covered in facial hair. Those who enjoy having a strong beard should look into shaving every two weeks. Really, it’s up to personal preference, but we strongly recommend getting into a rhythm to not only establish a good routine but to schedule around it with the rest of your life.

Gathering The Right Supplies

Having the right supplies can be a game changer when it comes to your shave. While you can very easily pass over your face with an electric razor and be done with your shave in 30 seconds or less, you’re also taking a razor to your dry skin. This can leave your skin irritated and lead to ingrown hairs. That’s why getting the best shave includes getting the best supplies. Thankfully, the Muehle shaving collection has everything you need to elevate your shaving experience. Our robust collection of Muhle razors, shaving brushes, shaving creams, and more offers the pinnacle in the overall shaving experience. With the right supplies in hand, you’ll be able to elevate your shave immediately to new heights.

Practice Makes Perfect

It’s important to know that you won’t master the art of shaving right away. In fact, many master shavers are learning and modifying their shaving techniques every day. It’s important to take each shaving session as not only the opportunity to clean your face but as an opportunity to learn. You’ll likely grow frustrated as you probably won’t get the desired results on the first round. As you continue and progress, you’ll learn what works and what doesn’t. You’ll discover the technique that best suits you, modifying it whenever necessary. Eventually, you’ll combine everything together to design the perfect shaving technique.

Have Patience

Ultimately, have patience when shaving. You don’t want to rush the process, as it can lead to potentially injuring yourself or irritating the skin. When dealing with a razor so close to the skin, precision is key.

With these tips in hand, you’re ready to join the culture of shaving and hopefully becoming a master shaver one day. If you’re looking for the best shaving equipment, then visit Muehle.
