Give you man a new look with a proper wet shave!
Sitting down in a barber shop for a wet shave has to be one of those 'must do' things for blokes. Shaving is always a real hassle that takes time and usually involves a couple of nicks of the skin in the process, so these cut throat shave experiences take out all the hard work and leave your skin smooth and lovely afterwards. Oh and ladies love the wet shave look too!
This sort of traditional shave is definitely regaining popularity in the face of electric shavers and safety blades that cost a fortune and need replacing regularly. When it comes to looking after your cut throat blade, you just need to strop it and hone it every now and again!
In fact, this time-honoured tradition is now becoming a weekly ritual for many men, as there's nothing like the finish of the sharp blade to keep the boys looking trimmed. Contrary to what you might think, a cut throat shave needn't take ages either, so if your man is pushed for time, it can be a lunchtime traditional wet shave treat or how about a traditional shave as a pre-night out pamper?
The key to it all is preparation. The cut throat razor needs to be prepared, but most importantly so does your skin. Warm water will help to soften that bristly stubble and open those pores making for a closer, smoother and painless shave. Ideally you'll opt for an experience that includes the full works so your facial hair will be ready to be cropped in total comfort.
Another important factor is the gel or foam. Barber shop shavers tend to favour a good lathering of foam, applied with a proper brush for excellent coverage. For those of you wanting to try it at home, it may be better to use transparent gel so you can see the stubble - but these professional barbers will deftly glide over the contours of your face with swift, controlled strokes of the blade.
So, if your bloke has a beard that needs maintaining or you want to give him that new, polished cut throat shave look, we can highly recommend one of our wet shave vouchers - and all in the hands of professional cut throat shave technicians who know how to work that blade for a traditional shave with a top finish.
