The Men's Room

No more excuses! Get yourself a barber shave.

Andy shaving1Yeah, yeah.. I know, I see the beard trend going on. But you know what? With every beard I trim, there’s an equal amount of men (if not more) that want a nice close shave. And “us barbers” are the ones to give it!

Trust me, I totally get the “fear” excuse.

And, there are tons of movies that perpetuate this fear, making almost any man a bit nervous at the thought of getting a professional straight razor shave, but relax.

Barbers who advertise straight razor shaves are generally well trained in getting the shave close…but not that close!  Besides, actually cutting someone to the point where it gets ugly won’t happen with a “pro” behind the blade or even a novice for that matter.  Now, a “professional hit man”… that’s a different topic entirely!

So, if you’ve ever wanted a good old-fashioned straight razor shave, do your research, and ask around for good place to get one.  But by all means, please, do not let fear deprive you of one of the most relaxing services only a man can appreciate.

I promise you will love it!

Oh, one more thing.  The more you go, the more relaxed you will become.  And, for the record, falling asleep during a shave my friend, is the best compliment you could ever pay your barber!

    Great piece Craig!
    I’ve had guys come to me with only a day or two to go before their ‘gift voucher’ expires, bought as a present for them by their wife/girlfriend. They have put off the shave as they were terrified of the unknown – only to find out that it is one of the best experiences of their live’s!
    Now, many are regular visitors to my shop for the ULTIMATE in male grooming, their only “regret” being that they didn’t discover it long before!!
