How long does it take you to shave?
« on: August 29, 2006, 12:17:09 AM »
How long does it take you to shave your head?

I'm asking because it usually takes me no less than half an hour.
Is that normal?

So, how long does it take you?


Who loves ya, baby?

I timed it the other day...15 minutes, including the face with a Gillette Fusion Power!

I'm right along with Shaft at around 15 minutes using the Remington Rotary shaver.

Wow, Tyler, Shaft, you're real roadrunners! 15 minutes, that's quite fast.

Maybe the reason why it takes me so long is lack of years of shaving experience, or perhaps because
I take it slow and try to enjoy it, being a ritual and all. But I wished I could do it faster...

Btw, it takes me 30 minutes just for the head. So 15 minutes incl. the face is quite an accomplishment in my opinion.

Thanks for your replies!

Dudes, it literally only takes me about 5 minutes to shave. . . face and scalp! I get ready for work including shave, shower, and dressed in only 1/2 hour. . . that's gives me time for more sleep!

I shave an entire circle starting down below the bottom of my neck. Including everything above except my wide gote & eyebrows ( ..lol) I go in 3 pieces (i.e. 1 side of head/including back of neck, other side, then face and front of neck) and it's prolly around 15 minutes or so, never timed. But, I have been doing it for over a decade now, and seems monthly there is less to shave! hehe   ;D  I have a nice "putting green" in the back (pretty large these days) and a nice path leading to it. I have heard people say they have a 5 head instead of a forehead, well that means I have a 12 pack! lol doh... AT 20 yrs of age, 16 yrs ago, my fellow Police Officers called me "RoundHead" lol and I wasn't shaving yet... Come to think of it, they might have gave me the initiative to start!!  haha

It usually takes me about 30 minutes to shave the noggin while I'm in the shower, shave my face and brush my teeth. Doesn't matter how much I try to hurry, it always takes 30 minutes

I've been experimenting with a new shaving technique (oh, sounds really fancy) that is both
fast and safe. I've managed to get the time down to 15 minutes (from 30 min) and I haven't cut myself
during shaving (used to cut myself at least once), and there was considerably less irritation...

I can shave my head and face in about 5-6 minutes.  I shave in the shower.  I can shave my head blind just using my non shaving hand to feel for missed places.  The headblade makes it much quicker.

Hey Bugman, get yourself a fog free mirror from Bed, Bath, and Beyond, or Linens and Things....  Helps out immensely during the showershave!

Thanks for the tip.  I do have one, and use it for the face.  For some reason, I barely need it for the head.  I take long steady overlapping swipes, and it goes really quick without missing anything.  The back is similiar, except I do rub the back of my head to be sure I haven't missed anything.
