No Shave November Rules – Do It Right
I’m sure you’ve heard of “No shave November”. But did you know there are rules to it? I got the scoop on the hairy month!
No shave November first started to give people a break from having to be groomed because the work loads are heavier and the school semesters are hectic this time of year, so why waste time not getting extra sleep when you can and not shave. No shave November is done both on beards and legs (respectively) but in my opinion, keep it shaven ladies.
No shave November has some guidelines and rules. So if you want to do it, do it right, guys! The rules go as follows:
November 1: Razors are stowed and November begins.
November 7: The week of scratching that itch. Push yourself, control the desire to shave and relieve the itchiness.
First Wednesday: Resist the itch. Itch hump day.
November 14: Finally the men don’t look ridiculous (boys may look ridiculous though).
November 21: Trim the beard just enough so you don’t look homeless. If you are homeless, proceed.
November 28: Groom the beard and wash it with shampoo for the maximum shine.
November 30: If you still have patches in the beard you are no longer allowed to participate in No Shave November and should just shave. It’s the law.
The Intent of Noshember: The goal of Noshember is not so much a contest or even the ritual of shaving, but rather the shear laziness of being unkempt and rough and united for an entire month. Have fun with it and again…leave the No Shave November celebrations to the guys, ladies.
