I love you.
This post was partly inspired from a post on Young + Fresh + New that referenced Gillete razors, and partly from a new wave of intrigued co-workers about how I stay so fresh… and new.
I’ve shaved my head since 2002 (way before Howie Mandel), but I spent the first 3 1/2 years using a Norelco electric shaver. I never liked using a straight razor on my face simply because I wasn’t that good at it, and I’d cut myself. The few times I tried on my head with a regularly-handled razor, it wasn’t a pretty site, and after cutting myself twice, it was on to the Norelco.
My life changed circa late-2005/early-2006 when I found the Head Blade, named in Time Magazine’s Top Ten Designs of 2000. 2000??? I was so pissed when I found this out. Why didn’t I know about the Head Blade earlier? So, I don’t want this to happen to any fellow members of the Bald Brotherhood. Now, they even have product spin-offs like the Sport (pictured above). My first HB didn’t look like a Hot Wheels car. I also use the HeadSlick creme, which I realized I was totally dependent on when I was forced to use regular shaving creme while out of town last year. I’m not getting paid by Head Blade to write this (but Todd Greene, holler at me if you want me to make weekly posts, I can totally be bought. And I think I’m a way better endorser than Howie)
So, come join me, Howie Mandell, John Sally, countless UFC fighters, that Steve guy from Jerry Springer, and more. I have a hunch that Jordan is a closet Head-blader too… he’s just too expensive to endorse it officially. Although, I can picture an inspirational Head Blade commercial from Jordan like this “Maybe” commercial.
