Third-year mathematics student Jake Flatto has fallen into a razor-less routine as he nears the halfway point of No-Shave November, but not without discomfort.
“It’s always itchy for the first two to four weeks of growing it,” he said.
Flatto intends to stick out the discomfort for the rest of the month but is unwilling to make any commitments beyond that.
He will decide at the end of the month whether to shave it or let it continue into a winter beard.
