  • Is this too extreme?

    This might seem ridiculous, but I have heard from a lot of folks entering the academy that the drill sergeants are pretty strict on facial hair. That's fine, and I agree with them, however I have a bit of a problem when it comes to shaving. I keep myself clean cut, yet I seem to grow stubble really quickly. In a few hours I look like I didn't shave at all that morning! I don't want the cotton ball getting stuck on my stubble, so I was thinking about getting my entire face WAXED before the academy. It'll hurt like Hell, but it might be worth it. Has anyone else done this?

    Get an electric razor, keep it in your locker and shave again after lunch before you return to class. Waxing (I have never heard of a face waxing before) is probably not a good option. You'd have to do it five to six times through the academy. That's just crazy, dude!!

      I had a few guys in my academy that had to shave at lunch.

        Very true xdrcx, I would opt for the electric over something that you probably don't feel entirely comfortable about...

          Electric razor, but make sure it's a rechargable battery. Also keep some skin bracer or something there too which will stimulate the stumble to stand up straight, giving you the closest shave.

            i had this problem in US Army basic, i agree with the electric shaver..

            DO NOT USE NAIR, or wax

            a dude i knew tried it and it made his face look like someone beat his face with golf shoe.
