Adam Lambert has recalled the devastation he caused to his mouth when shaving his face for the first time.

The 33-year-old singer has become somewhat of a style icon for his eccentric approach to fashion.

But when it comes to grooming, Adam had to learn how to manicure himself the hard way.

“I remember shaving for the first time because I wasn’t really needing to shave yet. You know, it was like peach fuzz, you know when you’re like 14,” he recalled to MTV News. “It’s not really like a beard. I remember I got a razor from my dad’s medicine cabinet, I got a new one out and like shaved my lip with shaving cream. I think I cut like the corner. And I remember what I liked so much about it is after I was done I was like, I licked my shaved lip. It was such a bizarre feeling because even though it was peach fuzz it did feel different.”

MTV Fora previously spoke to Adam about his approach to hair.

Although he prefers to buzz his face from time to time, the star loves sporting hairdos that showcase his thick tresses.

In fact, he adds a little grease to his locks to make them dazzle.

“I don’t know. I think my hair’s really big and crazy…but not in a way that it’s like, ‘Whooaa’. So, I use pomade to kind of tone it down…[as well as give it] a little shine,” Adam shared.

When it comes to fashion, he picked up most of his dress sense from mother Leila.

"I remember in high school, there was a period of time where we were hanging out a lot and we were doing a lot of shopping," he recalled to People magazine in a joint interview with his mum. "You got to a point where you said to me, 'I'm sick of all my clothes, I'm stuck.' And I was like, 'That's all I need to hear. We're doing a makeover!' I definitely get my eye for style from her."
