Learn how to shave your head

Learn how to shave your headAccording to Esquire shaving* your own head is not as difficult as some guys think. Here’s their step-by-step guide.

A possibly useful, possibly not guide to keeping it clean.

1. Decide if you are a razor person or a clippers person. If you’re a razor person, best wishes and good luck.

2. With clippers, it’s the same idea as mowing a lawn except that for half of it, you’re blindfolded.

3. Divide your head (mentally) into six parts: top, back left, back right, side right, side left, and neck.

4. The top is easy – front to back, in rows. For the back and sides, gently run the clippers in overlapping columns from your upper neck to the area you cropped on top. Same idea for your neck.

5. For the parts you can’t see in your mirror, you’ll have to go by feel. But if you can tie a bandanna around your head, you can do this. (If you can’t tie a bandanna around your head, best wishes and good luck.)

6. Don’t rush. Take care around any hills or valleys in the contours of your skull. I like to double back as I go. Stop and give the blades a brush-cleaning between sections.

7. Lightly run your hand all over your head to check for missed spots, especially around the crown. When you’re done, wash your head and neck over the sink.

8. Wipe up around the sink and vanity. Even if you’re lucky enough to have a tolerant woman or a cleaning person, it’s the right thing to do, and everyone’s already sick and tired of cleaning up after you.

9. Step boldly out into the world, a man renewed.

*It’s not really shaving. More like clipping.
