I have tried going the other way. I wanted to rip my face off afterwards lol.

But I want to know if it was the right way or not

I got with grain (downwards). It just hurts too much to go against the grain.

golden don't be such a neutraGINA whore hehe.

but shaving your balls is easy, just take a mach 3 to it and not put too mmuch pressure... it's a safety razor it's not gonna cut you. when you're in the shower just stretch it out and go at it.

This is what I do for a professional shave. The purpose of my shaving technique is not only to remove hair, or provide baby-butt smooth skin, but also to exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells.

Techniques:

- Always keep razor clean, rinse it after every stroke. A clogged razor will not provide a close shave, and will also irritate skin.

- Skin must be kept taught for a close shave. That means raising your head when shaving your neck, making some funny twisty faces with your mouth when shaving either cheek, and pushing your upper lip over your front teeth when shaving your mustache.

- If you want a super close shave, begin with a single blade razor, then re-lather, and shave again with a double/triple blade razor. While double/triple blade razors provide a closer shave, they also give more skin irritation, and get clogged/dull quickly if shaving too much hair.

- If you want to be professional, use a glycerin-based soap (important) and lather up. Not a gel, and not a foam.. both of which don't lather up as smooth, are not antiseptic, can lead to irritation, and are not natural---they're just a mix of chemicals. If you were to get a professional shave done at a high end salon, they would use Bay Rum lathering soap, Truefitt Hill shaving soap, or Kent shaving soap. The gel's and foam's are for kids who give in to bad advertising techniques. Personally I prefer Bay Rum, but it's expensive so I use it sparingly. Otherwise I use a more inexpensive glycerin based soap such as Dove. You should use a proper lathering brush (badger hair) for using the soap and applying. (as Hasselhoff mentioned.)

- If you cut yourself, use a styptic pen/pencil on the wound immediately. Just hold it there for 3-4 seconds. It will stop the bleeding and you won't have any scars, or embarassing visible cuts. It will sting a little bit when applied.

- If you're shaving around a goatee, then trim the goatee's length first with whatever height trimmer attachment you prefer. (1/8, 1/4, 1/2, etc.) I prefer using a professional Andis electric. Then line around the goatee using your Andis electric, or a regular razor blade. If you use your razor blade to line, then make sure you trim a little bit closer than you want the actual line to be to account for the width, otherwise you'll never get it straight.


Instructions:

1. Use warm water on face to open pores which will push hairs out slightly for a closer shave, and make the hairs softer and more easier to cut.

2. Lather using circular motion everywhere to be shaved. Do not lather without wetting your face first with water! Lather should be created on your face, not on your hands first!

3. The trick here is to keep the skin taught while shaving. Shave down (with the grain) for face. Pull upper lip down over so it covers front teeth when shaving mustache. For neck, shave upwards towards jaw-line, tilt your head upwards.

4. Rinse with COLD water to close pores and prevent ingrown hairs and/or irritation. If you use an aftershave, be sure it is a liquid and not a cream, as a cream can clog pores causing razor bumps and possible pimples.

That's what I do for a professional shave for special occasions, or when working in the office.. otherwise I prefer being scruffy with half-assed shaving. I'm not metrosexual, and never claim to be.
