Time to upgrade your razor game? If you're thinking about switching to a single blade, Master Barber Michael Haar of Haar & Co. Barbershop has some advice.
If one is looking to get into using a single blade, as a way to step up their shaving routine, I’d always recommended starting with a double edge (DE) safety razor. That’s one rectangular blade with an edge on each side. Typically, you’ll get a couple of shaves per side, depending on how often you shave. This is a great way to ease into the single-blade world.
This type of razor would benefit any guy that grows a heavy beard. The thicker the facial hair growth, the better it is to shave with a single blade, reducing the chances of ingrown hairs & irritation.
Of course, the products you choose to use are just as important as the blade itself. Using a proper "Before-During-After" 3-step system -- Pre-Shave Cream, Shaving Cream, and After Shave -- is critical to getting the closest, most professional shave at home.
