Knowing the direction your face hairs grow in is the most important first step in achieving a close and comfortable shave. Wet shaving with, across and against the grain refers to shaving with, across and opposite to the direction of hair growth. Mark Of A Gentleman has developed a simple way to map your face that will provide an invaluable reference for achieving the perfect shave.

Mapping your face:
- Stand in front of a mirror and take a good look at the direction your face hairs grow in.
- Draw short lines with arrows on the face above to represent the direction of hair growth, as you see them in the mirror. Remember when you are shaving and looking at this picture you should see a mirror image. – see sample below
- Make a photocopy of this page and keep the original for reference. Keep the copy with you when you are shaving for the first few times until you get a good feel for which direction to guide your razor.
- Enjoy a close and comfortable shave.
