To be(ard) or not to be(ard)?

Why some people (read men) just don’t like to shave?

Maybe because of this?

Why they should shave?

Well, jokes apart, but if you are a guy then I am sure that once (at least) in your life you must have faced the dilemma whether to shave or not to shave. You wake up, you look in the mirror, rub your hands on your cheek and think ‘Should I? Really?’ If by chance you are an engineer, you must have faced this dilemma on a regular basis 😉 Not to mention how often you have to indulge in an argument when you encounter the torturous dialogue ‘Will you shave?’ Most of the time, many of us prefer the latter option as it seems the easy way out. After all, which guy would like to deprive himself of his beloved beard / mustache of which he cares (or maybe his girlfriend does). But, is it always the best option?

A beard can be cool and hot as well. A beard can make a guy feel like a man (depending on the type of beard ;)). There is an entire month devoted not to shave. Movember aka no shave November. What happens?

I know, right? But, sometimes not shaving may get in the way. Let me tell you how.

What is the best & most effective way to communicate? Words? No. Your body language? Hell yeah! How do you make an impact with your body language? Well, using the right gestures and expressions is one thing, but there is more to it. The first thing people notice about any person is that person’s face. After all, no one is going to say ‘I’ll talk to your hand’ or ‘I’ll talk to your feet’. They look at the face while communicating and an unshaven face can make an entirely different impact. It can prevent you from getting selected at your desired company or going out with that girl you so much want to! On the other hand a clean shave look can help you score higher.

The beard may give a macho look, but a clean-shaved face is an all time classic look. I mean just look at George Clooney. That guy is an ideal example. Our Indian counterparts like Amir Khan, Salman Khan & Shahrukh Khan are the poster boys for that matter. Can you imagine a mustache or a beard on their faces. Sure you can, but it is not going to look cool, right? Of course not.

Would you prefer your facial hair to ruin an important day? I guess not. You wouldn’t want to be in a situation where you have to say ‘Arey yaar, sare kiye karaye pe pani baal fir gaye 😉 When opportunity knocks on your door, be well prepared and clean-shaven to grab the opportunity with confidence.
