    I shaved my mustache once and I seemed to look incredibly ugly. I don't know why people are insistent on the fact that teens shouldn't shave but I do have to agree that it is unpleasant to see.

    I'd like to know if I should shave and what is the best way cuz I might b be doing something wrong?

    Thank you for your answers

    Isn't that what dads are for? To show you how to shave?

    I guess some teens get acne, though, so got to be careful...

    He believes that it'll grow longer and I'll have to shave every week

    If by longer he means faster, then yes it will grow faster, but only as a result of puberty. Shaving will not cause it to grow faster. It will, however, remove the baby hairs meaning that it will grow through looking thicker (but not necessarily being thicker) than it did before you shaved.

    Maybe make that choice for yourself rather than listening to what everyone else tells you to do? If you want to shave then shave. If you don't want to shave then don't. There's no correct answer to "should X person shave". The only time there's a correct answer is when it's stipulated, such as at a job where you have to be clean shaven.

    That’s a myth, shaving doesn’t improve your facial hair. Genetics do and so does time

    I hate it when people say this. It’s just a myth but so many people believe it and are so scared to shave because it will grow back faster and twice as thick lol

    Please do shave.
    When i was in high school a lot of guys thought they were cool if they didn't shave. But it looked disgusting on most of them.
    When you're young your beard growth is limited and you probably have really thin and few hairs. It looks stupid and immature.

    Why would they be scared of that though? Would they rather have thin and patchy hair?:lol:

    Mustache doesn’t generally look bad, but you can either fully accept it and embrace it, or shave it all. Puberty-mustache is usually not all-out mustache, and it might not look that nice (but you might look awesome in it, I don’t know). If you want to cut it, and you feel like it would make you more confident about how you look, nothing should stop you. Be careful though if you don’t know how to use a razor properly!

    Do what you want. Shave if you want to or shave if you don’t. In any case your dad should’ve taught you to shave by now and it’s a good bonding experience too.

    Most guys who are older shave every week and some shave more than twice a week so that’s something to bear in mind. At the moment it’s unlikely you’ll grow a lot of facial hair so do as you please.
