Keeping It Smooth

I don't know when it happened, but the men closest to me all chose to be bald.

The first one to do it was the husband of a friend, both of whom I went to high school with.  His logic was that he recognized what was happening, it was a part of his genetics, and he decided to embrace it rather than fight it.

I don't think we were even 30 when that happened.

The other two, who are so close to me that I made sure my son met them both, did so on their own as well.  Not necessarily for the same reason as my friend's husband, but regardless it worked for them.  I don't know why, but when they say bald is beautiful, they are right.

We've asked them about how they keep it shaved, and they've shared.  They shave themselves, their wives do it for them, and normally it's just with a basic razor and shaving cream.

When I saw this from The Art of Shaving I was immediately thinking of them and how great this would be as a gift for them:

This is gorgeous, right??

I guess in my mind I always pictured them with some cheap disposable thing, and this just makes it look so much more....grown up. 

I had to say it.  We just attended our 20th high school reunion so there is no denying it.

Did I mention they both wear a goatee most days as well?  This would actually be pretty nifty for that as well.  My husband may actually enjoy something a little more like this one since his shaving is at the last minute when we decide to go out.

The joys of being a stay at home parent, right?

Are you looking for a gift for someone who would appreciate an actual shaving kit as opposed to the nearest can of shaving cream and razor?  Or something more like my husband, quick and clean for the last minute shave on the way out the door?  This is the way to do it!
