A Close Shave...
Decades ago, shaving was one of the biggest services in the barbershop. In fact, gents would frequent the shop most days for a shave and would insist in having their own brush and mug.
One of the main reasons for this was the shave was cheap and quite a relaxing process, as a face massage was always included. However at home it was difficult to maintain and use a fixed blade razor (cut throat). It was also time consuming and an uncomfortable shave because gents had very little experience of looking after the blade.
Shaving was a very lucrative business for the barber until the early 1900's when the safety razor was introduced.
The art of shaving then hit it's demise and was at the point of extinction until now.
With the barbershop becoming fashionable once more, modern barbers are looking not just to cut hair well but to start taking care of their male clientele better.
The wet shaves are very much for the modern man, they are done in such as way that the client does not feel too fussed over but gets an extremely pleasant service.The Luxury Wet Shave consists of a total of 5 hot towels, moisturisers, oils, creams, 2 shaves and a freezing cold towel, leaving the face extremely smooth and soft, all in 40 minutes.
The Wet shaves are already proving popular, with many ladies treating their partners to a luxury wet shave experience.
