Can you shave EVERYWHERE with a safety razor?!

Yes—but you definitely don’t need to.

I get asked this question a lot. People are nervous, understandably so, about shaving more delicate areas, but the fact of the matter is, shaving with a safety razor is very similar to shaving with a cartridge razor—our razor is made for all hair types, skin types, and bodies. You can use it anywhere else your hair grows. 

People all  around the world shave different parts of their bodies such as legs, armpits, pubic area, face, chest, and back. The specific areas that are shaved can vary depending on personal preferences, cultural norms, gender, and societal expectations. For example, in France, some women opt to not shave their underarms; in Brazil, many women choose to shave everything; in Germany, men are known to shave their chests; in Russia, it is common for women to remove all facial hair; the list could go on…

We firmly believe that everyone has a choice and that no one should ever feel pressured to remove body hair. We also know that every body—and therefore all hair—is different. What works for one person may not work for the next. Shaving is not the only form of hair removal: waxing, sugaring, threading, laser hair removal, epilating, plucking, etc are all viable options. 

That being said, the cost and convenience of shaving is hard to beat. When done properly, shaving just might be the most effective way to remove hair without irritation.


For those who do choose to shave, here are a few area specific shaving tips:

Lightly grasp your razor in your fingertips to ensure you are applying ZERO pressure—particularly important while you’re shaving bonier areas like your shins.

Ensure skin is pulled taught before passing razor over it—I find that squatting works well and it allows for good visibility.

Try to make 3-5 slow passes with your razor rather than lots of quick strokes—the more times the blade passes over your skin, the more prone your skin will be to irritation.

Use shave oil to ensure skin remains hydrated and always always shave in the direction of hair growth.

Ask a friend—as with all other parts of your body, shaving in the direction of hair growth with as few passes as possible is key—it is VERY difficult to achieve this on your own!

Try shaving immediately after showering—a hot shower opens up pores and softens hair follicles on your face, making it easier to shave.

Make sure your scalp is clean, shave with the grain (in the direction of hair growth), and use a fresh blade to make sure it is sharp.
