Dom here, Customer Experience Manager at OneBlade. Our survey results are in and today I'll be addressing an important area of shaving technique with the OneBlade razor: shaving under the nose. We received some really great customer feedback in our survey, so we’ll be sharing some techniques and tips over the next few months to ensure you’re able to achieve your best shave, every time. In the feedback, we heard that some users have trouble shaving under the nose, so we’ll start there.
We understand shaving under the nose can be tricky and even intimidating with a blade as sharp as the Feather, but we want to give you our best tips to help in this area.
First, I want to start out with a visualization just to get our orientation right. I know everyone’s face is different but let’s just start by imagining that everyone’s upper lip is straight. Now, for shaving toward the middle of your nose, take the razor head and turn it to about a 45-degree angle (relative to that straight line). If shaving the right-side, the handle should be pointing to your left eye using one end of the blade. Then, to shave toward the ear just do the opposite with that 45-degree angle. Now switch to the other nostril following these tips (but flipped obviously).
Don’t be afraid to get the edge of the razor head slightly inside your nostril – that is where the guards on the front of the razor come into play and protect you from getting cut. It might be useful to test this out without a blade in the head.
Another tip to banish those pesky mustache hairs back from where they came will be a more horizontal head approach. We find that working at using your facial muscles to attempt to flatten out your medial cleft, the center area in the middle of the mustache area. It helps to stretch out your upper or make a face like you just witnessed an incredible magic trick. For some it helps to lift your nose with your free hand. A vertical stroke with the head horizontal here with one side of the blade or the other here going against the grain is very effective. A practiced and focused effort here will really pay off as you become more skilled with the razor this will become more routine and ultimately, easy to do. Shaving in this area requires a more manual approach to adjust the blade angle as opposed to relying on the self-registering feature of the OneBlade Razor.
Have a tip that’s works for you? Please feel free to share by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope this helps, but if not we’re happy to discuss this with you further. For now, let the whisker banishment commence.
