Have you ever taken a light beard trim a little too close? By the term 'too close' I mean had a sudden spontaneous uncontrolled desire to shave off your face fuzz to unveil your naked face hiding below?

Or maybe it was a trimming mistake that led to you having little to no choice other than to shave it off and start over, well today let's have a Thursday musing as we discuss the 3 Stages Of Regret Many Men Face After Shaving...


So, the damage has been done, the world feels much colder, especially on your cheeks (not those cheeks! keep it clean!) and all you are left with is a horrific sight on facial hairs blocking up the bathroom sink plughole and a razor in your hand.

But what did you just do? After looking up at your teary eyed self you spy the reflection of a child crying back at your from the bathroom mirror, it takes a couple of seconds to notice that crying child-like face you spy is actually you!

That's right, you are left with the carnage that is a naked face, which now grants you with a tummy full of instant shame and regret and a baby face to match. Damn.

Take This Quiz



After the realization begins to set in, you can't help but question yourself as to why?? why did I do this to myself? Was I drunk? was it a dare from mean friends? or maybe an ongoing bet? only you know why this would have happened, but one thing we can all agree on is you now look unrecognizable for all the wrong reasons.

    Because we have to stay at home anyway (covid-19). Me & 5 other friends have decided to take off our beards and now we all regret it ! We cannot find our chins and one lads found chins he never thought he had. Bottom line is we won’t be doing that again but nevertheless, a humbling experience.

    Man I just shaved my beard for some reason I was wondering what I’ll look like after. Got my answer I look like a baby photoshopped to a big muscular frame. Good thing no one’s gonna see for a month due to this corona lockdown!

    I’ve had a full beard for over 10 years. I’ve trimmed it close a couple of times, but never completely clean. Today it all came off :( I work in an Amazon warehouse, and with all of those desperate people incentivized to come to work with a $2 wage increase during the COVID-19 outbreak, I know for a fact people are coming to work sick. I’m opting to wear a respirator with a good seal for the foreseeable future. I hate everything about my face. WTF happened to my chin??

    I shaved my beard after 2 years last night and it is my biggest regret…. today a tear dropped after i looked at myself in the Mirror. Everything thats was left of my self esteem is gone now. I look like a child.
