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.


After the realisation 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.

Mark it as a lesson learned and move forward.


So, still upset from the days happenings you have instantly decided that nakey face is not for you, and you are going to start over growing out your facial forest once more.

You find yourself constantly searching the worldwide interwebs on the hope of discovering something that might help improve and speed up your beard growth skills. You search out liquids, proteins and potions all in the hope of helping spout out those whiskers in record time.

Thankfully given time your facial hair will start to fill out and grow back just how it was before you crazily braved the shave. So let this be a lesson learned, nobody likes a bald face, not even yourself. So, kick back, relax and let it grow, Brother.

As always we would love to read your trimming horror stories, so please be sure to tell us all about them in the comments section you'll find provided below.

And until next time, Beard ono Brothers, Beard on...
