Towel dry your hair (the more low maintenance the cut, the better) and leave all the styling / fine tuning until you get to the office. A cordless electric razor that can be used on your commute might be handy if you find yourself hitting the snooze button a little too regularly.
Jump in the shower and reach for Active 3 – a shampoo, shaving gel and body wash all in one. While this single product can take care of all the basics, the only other things you’ll need to look for are your toothbrush and paste.
Once you’ve got the technique down pat, a good shave should take no more than seven minutes. By the time you’re done, your body should have dried off. Apply an after-shave balm and get dressed before you attempt to style your hair. If you’ve only got a matter of minutes left, invest in a ‘reworkable’ product that will allow you to fine tune your style, rather than fix it in place for the entire day.
Wash off the mask with lukewarm water and follow our guide to get your PhD in Shaving. More time allows for more attention to detail, so be sure to balance out and taper those sideburns, snip any stray eyebrow hairs and trim those random tufts trying to escape from your nostrils. Style your hair as usual, fine-tuning your look as you go along and finish with your favourite fragrance, making sure that you apply it to the wrists (or the back of the neck) instead of directly onto the neck as the alcohol content will make your freshly shorn face feel like it’s been set on fire!.
