MicroTouch Tough Blade Facial Hair Series: Ducktail Beard

What’s the sound?  Is that the sound of a duck quacking? Or is it the sound of a new look headed your way?   Introducing the next look in our series on facial hairstyles: the Ducktail Beard.

Simply put, the Ducktail Beard is a full beard that extends into a point.  When shaped correctly, it looks extremely similar in appearance to a duck’s back tail feathers because of the way in which the beard tapers to a point, hence the name. A mustache is typically connected to the pointed beard, but those mustache hairs are generally kept shorter to help provide a more defined look for the pointed beard.

Growing your own Ducktail Beard is extremely easy to do.  Let your beard grow out to a long, full length (at least an inch or two on your chin).  Then, starting with the top area of your chin, trim the hairs in a gradual manner in a top-to-bottom motion, making sure you are tapering each side towards a center point underneath your chin.  The length of the beard is entirely up to you, but you do want it to make a clear, defined point.

A great trimmer to help you achieve this look is our MicroTouch Trimmer.  This exceptional hair trimmer comes with your online purchase of MicroTouch Tough Blade at Toughblade.com and is a perfect tool for trimming your beard, mustache, sideburns, and more!

Happy Memorial Day from Micro Touch Tough Blade!

Memorial-Day-MicroTouch-ToughBlade

Memorial Day is soon upon us, and MicroTouch Tough Blade would like to say “thanks” during this special holiday.

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May and it honors the women and men who died while serving in the U.S. military.  It is considered an official U.S. federal holiday and it began as “Decoration Day” after the American Civil War in 1868.  It became “Memorial Day” in the 20th century.

While it marks the start of the summer vacation season and often includes picnics and other outdoor outings, the holiday is a specific time for people to visit cemeteries and hold memorials for fallen soldiers.  It is not to be confused with Veterans Day.  Memorial Day is a day of remembering the woman and men who died while serving our country, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, living or dead.

All of us from MicroTouch Tough Blade wish you a happy, safe, and meaningful Memorial Day!

Runners Swimmers, & Cyclists: Why Shave?

Runners, swimmers, and cyclists all have reasons to shave at least parts of their body. Some of these reasons are the same and some are different and they have both physical and psychological effects. Micro Touch Tough Blade invites you to join us as we explore some top reasons:

Swimmers

There are several reasons that swimmers shave their bodies, or at least parts of it. Shaving hair that isn’t covered by a swimsuit helps to increase aerodynamics, and in a sport where winning can be decided by a hundredth of a second, even the slightest decrease in resistance can make a huge difference. Not only does shaving remove hair from the body, it also removes a couple layers of dead skin cells, which helps to produce a much better feeling in the water as the new skin is much more sensitive. This increased sensitivity can lead to the swimmer being more cognizant of their motions, leading to increased performance. The increased sensitivity also makes the swimmer feel like they are swimming much faster than usual, which is a solid psychological boost.

Cyclists

Cyclists are mostly known for shaving their legs. The most noted reason why cyclists shave their legs is for medical reasons. It is almost inevitable that all cyclists will crash at some point, and having shaved legs makes clean-up of that nasty road rash much easier. Along with medical reasons, cyclists also shave their legs for psychological reasons. Having smooth legs could just so happen to make a cyclist feel faster, and in turn could have positive effects on his/her performance.

Runners

Runners shaving their legs has become increasingly popular in recent years, following the lead of cyclists and for mostly the same reasons. Runners also shave for medical reasons in case they fall and suffer road rash. Shaved legs also make it easier to apply and remove kinesio tape to knees and ankles. Post-race massages also feel better without the tug of leg hairs. As with swimmers and cyclists, runners might also shave to “feel” faster. Psychology is a really funny thing, and if used to your advantage, could actually give you an edge.

Obviously, all of these apply to triathletes as well!

Popular Shaving Myths Debunked

MicroTouch Tough Blade shaving mythsThere are plenty of shaving myths out there today that really cause some men a lot of confusion. Here are several of the most popular myths (debunked):

Shaving Makes Hair Grow Back Thicker

Probably the most popular shaving myth is that after you shave, your hair grows back thicker. This can either make people very weary of shaving as they don’t want their facial hair to get thicker, or it can give people who are looking to grow thicker facial hair false hope. The reason why it might look thicker is because after a shave, your hair will have a blunter tip and will feel stubbly, but it is not actually thicker.

Shaving Makes Hair Grow Back a Different Color

Your facial hair will always grow back the same color that it always does. Like with the thicker myth, hair might seem a little darker at first when it is just stubble but as it grows out you’ll notice that it is the same color that it has always been.

Shaving Makes Hair Grow Back Faster

Shaving does not make your hair grow back any faster. Some will see an increase in speed of facial hair growth as they get older, but it has nothing to do with shaving or how often you shave.

Razors Should Be Kept in the Shower

Razors should not be stored in the shower. If they stay wet constantly, it increases the chances of bacteria growth and rust which are not things you would want touching your face. Razors should always be stored in dry places.

Shave Right When You Enter the Shower

MicroTouch Tough Blade knows you should actually shave right after the shower. The reason it is recommended to shave after a shower is that your hairs are well hydrated and soft.  Ideally, the shower should be warm and you should really take care in cleaning and exfoliating all areas in which you intend to shave.

More Pressure = Closer Shave

This is not only wrong, but quite unsafe. Applying too much pressure could cause cuts and razor burn. MicroTouch Tough Blade razors are designed to provide a close shave without the need of applying too much pressure.

Knowing what is a fact and what is a myth is important when it comes to shaving. You can’t always trust everything that someone else tells you.  You need to make sure you know for yourself what is right and what is wrong and we hope these tips from Micro Touch Tough Blade help you on your path towards shaving truth!
