Musings of an Investment banker

thinking man

I have been pestering my bf for about 2 weeks to write something for the #WillYouShave activity for me. The theme involves beards and shaving and clean shaven look and men’s grooming, so better to hear the experience from the horse’s mouth (Sorry for calling you a horse honey :P) than someone who doesn’t have to deal with such things. So after constantly reminding  him ten times in a day, he finally gave in and wrote this post finally. *See, nagging works!* 😀

Okay, over to you A.

“I am an Investment Banker, crowded (remember ‘Two makes a couple, and three a crowd’) by 3 forces in my life – my parents, my girlfriend and my fiercefully fierce office. My mom says don’t shave on Tuesday, Thurdsay and Saturday, my girlfriend says don’t shave at all, I look sexy in stubble and my boss says shave daily, you are an Investment Banker, you ought to look like one.

Nudged by my mom and girlfriend  in spite of being warned by my boss about the necessity of shaving daily, specially in client meetings, I finally gave in (read I woke super late) and went unshaven for a day in my office, unaware of scheduling of a very important meeting with a major pharma company. My boss sees me in office, and looking at my one day unshaven face, decided not to take me for the meeting. And then there I was sitting on my office desk, staring at my own image on my phone selfie mode, fantasizing about my own ‘sexiness’. 😛

Shaving daily is a part of my routine and I feel good in a neat and trim look (instead of giving people reason to comment on the nature, color and length of the hair on my face, I rather people concentrate on my personality).

Now here comes the question of what do I use for shaving. The only choice I must say which is available is Gillete and quite good it is, with max 1 min with foam to shave when I am real late to the office. I have not quite gotten myself used to electric shavers still and with new improved razors like Gillete Power Fusion which runs for a month or so, I really don’t need to bother. Well calling myself the jack of all trades and master of none, this is the maximum I have thought and written about my facial hair and its story.

But yes, don’t forget to shave daily, even if your gf or mom nudges not to. I no longer wish to get reminded of my broad face and insinuated that I have perhaps not taken a bath.

Do shave daily… 😉 ”
