    Right, this has always confused me.

    You know those people (esp actors.. Twilight dude comes to mind) who always walk around with a fair bit of stubble? How do they keep it like that without it growing into a full beard or being completely clean shaven? Do they grow hair REALLY FUCKING FAST? Or happen to only be photographed a few days after shaving? Or are there special shavers that shave like 1/2 a cm from your face?

    As I said, an odd question. :)

    lol odd question indeed...

    ...but something I've thought about too.
    I use an electric hair trimmer/shaver, because shaving clean with a razor always gives me ingrown hairs so I've sorta maintained a stubble look for the past couple years.

    Edit: pretty much ^ that link.

    The actor types go as far as using a laser type trimmer to shape it. :loco:(it's powered by dead baby intestines)

    Well that explains that :)

    @deanbailey
    Are you shaving against or with the grain? Shaving against tends you give ingrown hairs apparently, that may be why.

    I actually get that question a lot.
    Nah It's not that, My facial hair just grows out really sharp for some reason...

    That's why I changed shaving tools.

    I haven't shaved my face in probably a decade. I just use a trimmer every couple days to keep it really short. It's way more comfortable.

    Do you guys use really nice electric razors? Cuz my $50 Braun can't get close enough on my neck, though that could be because I have a very pronounced trachea :D

    The wife got me the Braun Syncro Pro 7765 last year for Christmas and this thing can do up close baby-smooth, or that stubble look as well. Like many others, I cant use straight razors to shave my face and neck because I get issues with ingrown hairs and etc. Even a regular pair of shaving clippers that comes with guards can be used on beards... I did it for YEARS. Always had stubble, though, because they dont quite take it down close enough.

    I don't use a razor at all. Just a trimmer. Like this:

    [​IMG]

    So I always have stubble, the length of which being the thickness of the trimmer blades. It's not that noticable. It probably looks like I shaved the day before.

    I keep a full beard fairly long. When my moustache gets in my mouth, it's trimming time haha.

    I have this exact getup.

    Not shaving FTW.

    Then again, I can't grow a beard really hahah. Just butchered sideburns that flows down into a shitty chin piece and then a hack moustache that doesn't connect....

    My bodygroom actually works on my face. It's legit.


    Ballapowder does not. :(

    I use a $20 Conair trimmer that I scored from Walmart! Works well enough. Occasionally I will bust out a razor for the neck, but usually not. :kickass:
