Somebody explain how this works?
People want the appearance of three-day stubble, but they don't get the look by shaving every three days.
The easiest way is to just use a sideburn trimmer and "shave" the entirety of the face and neck. You'll trim the hair to about a millimeter in length, and get the "sandpaper" result you desire.
To clean it up, I ususally keep the neck clean-shaven and trim the beard every three days or so. If you prefer a "raw" look that Don Johnson rocked, keep the neck and face at equal length.
