CAIRO – 13 June 2022: Men began shaving their beards nearly 30,000 years ago. By looking at the history of shaving, we can see that we are not really different from our ancestors. Archaeologists have found evidence that the idea of shaving dates back to between 30,000 BC and 10,000 BC. It is likely that prehistoric humans began shaving for hygienic reasons. Shaving didn't advance until around 3000 BC when the advent of copper tools changed everything, but ancient Egypt was the first civilization to take shaving seriously.
