What Would Kojak Do? -or- So That's Why I Had Hair

About a month ago I shaved my head and found the skin underneath wasn't in great shape, pimply and blotchy. I figured this was just a side effect of never seeing the light of day before, so I didn't worry too much about it. Now it's a month late my head is just as blotchy and pimply as it was the first time. What can I do to get it smooth and beautiful—or at least not embarrassing? [more inside]

How Can I Stop Getting Razor Bumps?

I get pretty gnarly razor bumps on my chin and upper neck. I've tried the following things to try to get rid of them: (1) shaving with the grain, (2) a product called Bump Patrol, and (3) some kind of chemical hair removal cream I bought at Target. The first two didn't work and the third was too painful to keep up (and also didn't seem to remove all the hair.) Can anyone recommend something else? What's worked for you? [more inside]

Men's Shave in Philadelphia on Sunday?

Trying to book a group shave/trim for a bearded wedding party this Sunday in Philadelphia. The only place that appears to be open that day is Art of Shaving and they're booked for the time we need. Any recommendations on places to try? We've researched so far and can't find anything open then. If there are any salons that do this service as well we'd be interested although hoping to keep it less than 50-60 a person. Thanks!
