Why Don’t You Shave??

The stubble that grows like wild foliage on a guy’s face can turn things upside down. Think of a man who looks prickly as a cactus, trying his best pick up lines to woo a lady but she simply gives a royal ignore just to avoid his thorny face! That would be a huge insult. So, apart from basic essentials like good clothes and shoes and also, no body odor, there is one more thing that attracts a woman prima-facie. This is a fact that looks attract first and then only one gets to see the beauty and care of heart. The face gives a good peek into our habits and levels of discipline. A man with an unshaven face looks like a free radical, a vagabond or a couch potato just like a girl with uncut and untidy hair looks like an uneducated moron or a lazy bone, too sloppy to even manage her own self! Gone were those days when stubble was considered a sign of manliness. Now, as the concepts themselves are changing, stubble indicates a man too indolent to take care of himself, a depressed soul or a philosopher cut off from the real world.

A few years back, one of my friends got into a relationship with a boy who came from an extremely well connected business background. I remember it was a hot afternoon of July and I was sitting in the canteen with my friends when I saw her coming with a guy wearing a T shirt and jeans. She came towards us and excitedly, with a child-like enthusiasm, said “He is here!” We stared at each other in silence and looked at the boy standing beside her. He looked more like her driver or someone, just out on a bail. “He is the one I was talking about…remember?” she said, blushing a bit and pulling the mannequin like boy a bit closer towards the table.

The first impression he gave us is not even worth mentioning. In spite of his well fitted branded clothes, he looked like a drug addict or someone, too lazy to take a bath. His stubble and unshaven face spoiled the entire joy of meeting a friend’s special someone. He sat there quietly and gave us a quite smile. I do not remember if anyone initiated a conversation with him. After some time, they left and later that day, my friend called me up. She wanted to know my opinion about that boy. However, just like my other friends, I too did not like him much, mainly because of his unshaven face and sloppy looks. I do not know if she continued her relationship but it is highly unlikely that I will ever take that kind of a boy seriously in future if, by chance, I come across one.

  1. I was taken aback a little reading this, as a female I've always found facial hair to be a very attractive thing for men, given it's well maintained.

    1. Hi Wanderer

      unshaven stubble looks dirty and sloppy. It gives a very unclean sort of appearance. A well maintained beard is better than a wild stubble :)

  2. I know this is a post for Gillette. But please do not judge a man by his sloppy looks. A few years ago, a newspaper reporter in Seattle was in a movie theater waiting in line to buy a movie ticket. He saw another man who was also waiting in the line. He looked so sloppy and poor. This reporter was wondering how that man could even afford to buy a movie ticket. On looking closer, the reporter found that the man was Bill Gates.

    1. Hi SG

      I personally do not like boys with a dirty stubble and sloppy looks. the shabby man turned out to be bill gates is a different thing as we he did not come to meet his gf's friends or make a first impression on someone. :)

  3. Omg!!,How different your perception is?I always supposed well grown stubble indicated masculinity,macho, and aggression and that is why most famed cricketers like Kohli,Dhawan,Ravindra Jadeja and host of there remain unshaven..The big B would become small B if he deigns to remove his stubble.What about her own PM?Stubble is the in thing these days.Tell your friend not to discard the well heeled friend on this count..
    I suspect you tailored this promotional article to suit a contest !!!!

    1. Hello nana

      A well maintained beard like PM and Big B looks far better and styled than a one day old stubble and unshaven face :)

  6. I do like a man with a beard! As long as it is well maintained. Gillette belongs to Procter & Gamble by the way. :(
    Hope you are having a good Monday!

    1. Hi Katrin

      I like bearded men too but unruly and wild stubble can sometimes look really sloppy and annoying. is it? I did not notice that. I think shaving creams are not tested on animals.

      ya! you have a gr8 week too :)

    2. Anything is tested on animals. They want to make sure if it irritates the skin. Which is total crap.

      Have a good Sunday!

    4. It's really sad they do things like that. It's a stupid company. :(

    5. yes, animal testing is a sin and such products should not be used.

  7. I agree. Beard or stubble does not look good on everyone. I also like that you emphasize unkempt :)) I suppose you could add the various designs some guys like, he he.. I've always found that funny like a clown or a bogie man. While a five o clock shadow is sexy, it is not for everyone. A clean shave is always better.

    1. Hi Ruby

      yes, sometimes a stubble looks filthy :P
      A beard looks good only when it is trimmed and styled. I like clean shaved guys too :)

  8. It has been two years since I am clean shaven. It feels nice to me, but sometimes I feel I am dependent on being shaven. Like I am not the same person if I don't shave. Having said that, I don't think I will think less of someone if they were not shaved. Ditto for women with unkempt hair. Unless of course such a man/woman has other things that make them difficult to work with.

    1. Hi KK

      clean shaven faces look well maintained and smart. I think a dirty, unruly and wild stubble gives a very stale appeal.

    All the best!
