“I just stumbled across your videos and thought this was a really good idea. I am pre-adolescent and don’t have a dad around to teach me so I wanted to ask you if in addition to what you teach in your video’s, is there anything a first timer needs to know when shaving? To tell you the truth I am a little worried that I am going to cut myself or do it wrong in some way that will cause problems. Anything you could tell me would be helpful. “
For a young first-timer I would say just one pass with the grain of the beard will be enough until your beard starts to get heavier. I can pretty much guarantee you’ll get a nick or cut once in a while–everyone does, including me–but like swimming or riding a bike or dating, it’ll get easier as time goes on. Hang in there.
