Every men has their own way of styling their hair or beard. Some like to keep their hair short, some prefer to keep it bald, while some choose to keep it long. Same goes with shaving; some men shave it close and smooth, some keep it in different styles, and some keep it long.

Recently, I did a survey on the topic- ‘outward appearance of men’. 30 women took part on this survey where they were asked 10 questions. One of the questions I asked to them was- “Which one do you prefer- men with smooth close shave, or men with long beard?” Out of 30, 26 of them prefer men with clean face reasoning they look more attractive and manly with a clean face. 4 of them do not have a problem with men having a long beard and said that clean face or long beard does not bother them.

Did you hear that guys? Women prefer men with clean face over long beard. Now you know what to do; go get a shaver and shave your beard smooth and clean.

Having said that, my survey doesn’t proof that all women prefer men with clean shave. Here, I’m just assuming that majority of the women prefer clean shave over long beard.

Ways to Get a Close Clean Shave

Shaving with razor is a common and popular practice to get a close shave. Razor shavers are easy to find and cheap in price. Most men prefer razor as their shaving kit because it gives closest shave and are much cheaper in price compared to electric shavers. In spite of giving a close shave result, shaving with razors have complications. It is time consuming and one has to be careful while shaving with razor. Shaving with razor may give unpleasant aftershave result to those who have sensitive skin. Skin irritation, skin soreness, cut and nicks, etc. are most likely to occur to people with sensitive skin.

The latest and the more fashionable method of shaving is shaving with electric shaver. Many have put aside their razor and upgraded to electric shaving for its many benefits. Electric shavers are designed for your comfort and convenience using highly advanced modern technology. Electric shavers are more user friendly compared to razors, and at the same time minimize cuts, skin itchiness, soreness, etc. The high RPM motor used in electric shavers can cut thick beard in just few strokes minimizing shaving time. You can get electric shavers at different price range and in different design.

Choosing between razor and electric shaver is a personal choice. Manual razor shavers are cheap in price yet at the same time give the closest shave. But, if you have sensitive skin, and if you look for comfort and convenience while shaving, investing on electric shaver is a smart move.
