Over the past few years, a resurgence of manliness has been making its way into the mainstream again. One of the most traditional manly ways to to pamper your rough face is by taking a straight razor to it; by a professionally licensed barber of course. The barbershop has once again become the hub for men to start their day off with a clean shave before leaving for work.
There are many great reasons to treat yourself to a straight razor shave by a licensed barber. The straight razor shave is extremely popular with our wedding party clients. Having a hot towel, warm lather and a close shave just before saying your vows is a great way to relax and get out any pre wedding jitters. Plus, I’m sure the bride will not complain about one of the closest shaves you will ever receive. Other great reasons for treating yourself to a straight razor shave include big events, date night with your wife or girlfriend, or even for your next business meeting. If you just need an excuse to relax for a few minutes during lunchtime, dropping by the barbershop for a quick shave is a great way to shake your day up and take a breather.
Every man should experience a straight razor shave for himself, at least once in his lifetime. It is extremely relaxing, it’s a classic process, and your grandpa would be proud.
The experience of the straight razor shave, when done in a barbershop, typically includes the following (or close to it:)
- A hot towel and a lather treatment are applied to soften the whiskers on your face.
- Again, a hot towel and lather treatment are applied in order to soften the beard, but also to open the pores.
- At this point, a barber will typically begin to shave your face.
- After the shave, a cool towel is used to close the pores and clean your face.
- An aftershave of some sort is usually applied.
