The Electric Shave

My first experience with shaving was trimming a few chin hairs with a pair of dull safety scissors. I was 14 or 15, and my cheeks were slow to start growing any kind of facial hair. The scissors sufficed for a few months, but eventually the 5 or 6 stray hairs turned into dozens, and then hundreds. I found my brother’s old electric shaver in a bathroom drawer and started using that to groom myself. 30 years later, I still value the speed and efficiency of an electric shaver.

Now, my son has signaled that he’s ready to join the long line of electricians in his family with a request for a shaver of his own. Luckily, Philips Norelco was willing to set him up with their new Click & Style. It’s an all-in-one shaving and grooming tool and, quite frankly, it’s the best shaver I’ve ever seen.

Norelco Click and Style

The beauty of the Click & Style are the three separate attachments. First, a shaver attachment, with rotary blades. Second, a beard trimmer. And third, a foil style shaver/trimmer. That really covers all the bases for whatever body hair needs to be groomed. All three attachments give you ultimate control and precision for a clean, smooth shave.

My son is finding it much easier to “manscape” with the Click & Style. So easy, in fact, that he can even multi-task while using it. Apparently, this is a thing. People don’t just stand at the mirror and shave anymore. They eat, brush their teeth, read, text, and play video games while grooming themselves.

Philips Norelco has had a bit of fun with the concept of guys multi-tasking, in their Nail Your Game Playbook videos:

The point, of course, is that most men want a good, fast shave. If I had to choose between the two, I might just pick fast. Luckily, with the Click & Style, you get both. My son is very quickly learning that he can groom himself without giving up his other precious morning activities, like sleeping in until the last possible moment or using up all the hot water in the shower (yes, the Click & Style is shower-proof).

So, thanks to Philips Norelco for the amazing shaver! It sure beats that pair of scissors I started out with over 30 years ago.

The Philips Norelco Click & Style would make a great Christmas present for the son, husband, brother, dad, or uncle in your life. It’s on sale at Amazon right now for just $50.
