When should young men start shaving?

ANSWER

First, talk to some men in your family -- perhaps your father, or an older brother who has already started shaving -- and ask them if you are ready. You should start shaving when you decide that you have enough hair growth on your face to actually shave off. You'll notice darker hairs forming on your chin and around your upper lip.
