Would You Take an AXE to the Face For a Chance to Win?



Love it or loathe it, facial hair is something that we all have to contend with. Whether you can grow a beard that puts a mountain man to shame, or barely produce enough fuzz to frighten a peach – it’s time to discover your grooming options on how to maintain and accentuate your facial foliage. There are plenty of styles and shapes that appeal to every man, and finding the right one for you is about to get a whole lot easier. Facial hair shapes more than just your face and mouth; it can determine who you are as a man, and how people interact with you.


Don’t believe us? Grow that bad boy out for a few weeks to hobo levels and see how many people want to sit next to you on the bus. Shave it all off, and wait for everyone to ask what the monumental occasion is. Whether you realize it or not, people do pay attention to your facial hair, and what you do (or don’t do) can leave a lasting impression. So whether, you’re ready to turn it up a notch and try out a new style, are looking to find ways to make the daily routine a little more bearable, than Male Standard has the answer.


We teamed up with industry experts AXE to find out what’s trending in the male grooming world and which effortless steps you can choose to improve your facial grooming routine.

Are You Running the Gauntlet When Shaving Your Face?


The first major problem we encountered is that many men feel shaving is a universal method; if you watched your old man shaving and simply followed suit, then you might not realize that a) technology has changed, b) styles have changed, and c) that you might not have the same skin type or facial features as Pops; and could be damaging your face or wearing the wrong style to accentual your features. So where can you turn for answers? Shaving, sadly, isn’t something we are taught at school, and many more didn’t receive guidance at home.


The next red flag is that when asked, some men thought that shaving was only a two-step process; lather up some gel and whip it off. While others were more creative, and attempted to style and shape and sometimes to great success, it still shows that even today, we might not all be aware of the damages we are causing or how to shave correctly. Under that mane of growth is sensitive skin that requires specific treatment and care. Shaving can be particularly harmful when you irritate the hair follicles, producing razor burn and unsightly rashes.


Choosing the right tools for the job is just as necessary and often overlooked, with many men simply grabbing the first items they see in the grocery store. We totally get that you want to get in and get out as quickly as possible, but investing in quality products, such as the AXE Shave line, will help make sure that your skin receives the essential nutrients it needs to recover from damages and weekly maintenance. The choice doesn’t have to be complicated.

Do You Know Your Facial Profile?


Even if, you are a proud bearded man, in fact especially if you wear facial hair, you will know that simply letting hair grow on its own accord is not an option. Without regular trimming and treatment, it will continue on its own grizzly course and leave you with an unattractive food catcher; the arch nemesis to good looks and svelte shaving routines. So what’s the best way to learn how to assess your facial profile and shaving needs? The answer is easier than you think! While it’s best to look in the mirror once in a while, we found a new interactive way to shape up.

    By taking the AXE quiz it considers me a ‘stache… Pretty awesome considering that is exactly what I have! I’ll definitely be trying their new line of products and see what type of results I get! Thanks MS for the introduction to AXE. Shave on!

    I took the AXE and found that my facial profile is Clean Cut. I already use Axe products and very excited to hear about the new product line and even better that they tell me exactly which razor will work for me. Also found the videos very helpful.

    Clean cut.. That’s how I like it! All the products look pretty cool and affordable. It gets pretty pricey for college students to stay maintained. Lol

    Took the quiz and it says I am a clean cut. I am a little of everything so it is not wrong. Curious to see as it says this is best for sensitive skin and that part could not be more true for me. I will take the challenge and see how it ends up. Will report back.
