Maybe it's the freezing temps outside or the dry air inside, but shaving in the winter is a real drag. Whatever the reason, it feels like the appropriate time to forsake formality in favor of comfort. Case in point: The winter scruff. Some call it stubble, others call it laziness, but somewhere between your end-of-the-day five o'clock shadow and a legitimate beard is what you're looking for.
Winter scruff makes for a sharp look that plays up the angles of your face. And it's easier to maintain than you might think. Simply find the length (and shaver setting) that works for you and go over the facial hair every three days or so. Keep your neck shaved from the top of the Adam's apple on down. Once a week, soften and clean the hair by exfoliating your face.
