Hi, I'm a male in my early 20s and I hate shaving my face. My beard
comes in very thick and very quickly. Shaving is not only an annoyance
but it also irritates my face and results in cuts, etc. It is
especially bad if I just recently shaved (a day or so ago). I can't
imagine if I had a job where I had to shave every morning as opposed
to every 2-3 days like I do now. It's also annoying since right after
I shave you can still sort of see the hair on my face that is under
the skin even though the surface is totally smooth.

What are some alternative hair removal methods for a man's face? All I
can find on the internet is shaving tips - most of which I do already.
Is waxing a viable option? Would it last for weeks? Is the skin on
your face too sensitive for it?

I had the same problem in my 20s, which is why I've had a beard
for the last 30 years. If you don't want a full beard, and you
go 3 days without shaving anyway, why not just use a trimmer to
keep your beard at the 3-day length? This saves you the agony of
shaving and some people think this looks better than a full beard,
since you facial features are still outlined nicely.

Let me know what you think...

Thank you for the tip based on your experience. I've considered
growing a beard, but generally I just prefer to look clean shaven...
especially for special occasions. It also just feels better when I am
clean shaven (maybe not right after I shave, but overall..).

I know growing a beard is always an option and maybe I'll do that one
day. But for now I'm really more interested in learning about
different ways I might remove the hair more completely and for a
longer period of time. Thanks!
There is no answer at this time.

Your best bet is trying all the different methods out there for women.
Skin is skin so I guess it wouldn't hurt! Waxing will definately be
painful but lasts longer than shaving. Laser hair removal will be much
more permanant but it's very expensive. You can even try that cream
that removes hair, but thats just as short-lasting as shaving.

Hope this helps!
