How To Shave Your Chin

Chins come in all shapes and sizes – but what they all have in common is their trickiness to shave.

Cuts, razor bumps, and missed hairs are all too common – which might be why famous-jawed people like Brad Pitt stopped shaving chins altogether.

Fortunately, the right technique is out there and much easier than you think. Here's four quick tips for a smooth chin shave. 

Tip #1 – Prepare

A great lather makes a huge difference. It softens hair and lifts the follicle away from your skin, making them easier to cut.

Tip #2 – Know Your Map

This will obviously help with your entire shave – but it's especially important when shaving your chin. Shaving with your beard grain will minimize irritation or cuts.
