Better Man

30 Days to a better man

30 Days to a better man What to Expect from a Straight Razor Shave 1. Cost. The barbershops that I’ve been to charge $20 for a straight razor shave. Some places will be more and some places may be less. But $20 seems to be the going rate. 2. The process. The two places I’ve gotten a straight razor shave had a pretty similar process. Here’s how it typically goes. You’ll sit in a cool barber chair, and the barber will tilt it back. He’ll start off putting a nice hot towel around your face to soften up your whiskers. After the first hot towel, some barbers rub cleanser on your face to open up the pores and to make sure your face is nice and clean for a good shave. After that, another hot towel. Next, they might put some conditioner on your whiskers to soften them up, followed by another hot towel. Now it’s on to the shaving cream. Most barbers have their own secret recipe for shaving cream that has been passed down for generations. The shaving cream will come from a heated dispenser. It feels really nice on your face. They’ll then take the razor to your face. Because of health codes, most barbers use disposable straight edge razors as opposed to traditional straight razors. Some men would argue that you’ll notice the difference. Honestly, I haven’t. After a first pass with the razor, you’ll get another hot towel. Shaving cream is reapplied, and another pass is made. When the barber is done removing your beard, he’ll give you a cold damp towel to close your pores and then splash on some manly aftershave. Bada bing! You just got a straight razor shave. You’ll walk out of the barbershop feeling rejuvenated, relaxed, and uber-manly. 194

Brett and Kate McKay Today’s Task: Get a Straight Razor Shave Today’s task is to get a straight razor shave. Not all barbers do them. So you’ll have to call around to find one that does. For our bearded brethren, have a professional trim and clean your beard up. I hear some barbers have some nice shampoos designed specifically for beards that smell particularly manly. After this task, you could even try the straight razor shelf yourself! 195
