Step One: Do It Yourself
Conquer the big guys first. If you can see any hairs without tipping your head back or turning to the sides, we need to take care of that straightaway. Make sure you’re using a blunt-nosed tweezer or scissors with rounded tips to save time and minimize effort. The lengthy Yoda-esque stragglers should pop out easily, however...“While the ‘pluck one hair and two will grow back’ theory may be a myth, pulling hair from this delicate area will prove to be extremely painful. Always go with an electric trimmer when combating more than just a few stragglers,” says Adam Berk, CEO and Founder of HYD For Men. Besides investing in an electric trimmer (like the Groom Mate, which requires no batteries) you’ll want a magnifying mirror. Although the sight of your face this up close can be jarring, it ain’t scarring, and it’s the best bet when it comes to eliminating the more stalwart follicles. Be assiduous in your efforts and don’t be afraid to call in your girlfriend to spot check. That her face lights up with bemusement should be all the affirmation you need that this was overdue and necessary.
