If you’re talking about an electric razor -- a small trimmer meant for lining up your facial fuzz -- the answer is no. Your chest has lots of hair, and an electric razor is not capable of taking down that much.
However, a hair clipper with guards will do the job. You can use it on your beard, your head, and your entire body. For its virgin voyage below the chin, make sure the No. 3 or No. 2 guard is locked in place. Also, your body has to be dry, since a clipper won’t mow down wet hair.
Once you’ve got some experience under your belt, feel free to take the clipper down to the No. 1 setting. And if you really want to appear just-shaved, remove the guard completely ... at your own risk. Although you’ll have to be careful not to tear yourself up, the great thing about using a clipper is you’ll never have to deal with ingrown hairs.Last little tip: I’d recommend using a corded device so you don’t have to worry about the power running out. Keep it plugged in and you can trim yourself all the way down to your feet … if that’s the look you’re going for. -- As told to Caroline Kinneberg
