It’s a man’s version of a women’s facial. A relaxing, pampering service that only men can enjoy is the traditional straight razor shave. Haircut Harry travels the world getting barbering services and posting them to YouTube. What fun! In this video taken from his channel, we thought it was so good we had to share! John Greco, the barber in this video, performs the ultimate straight razor shave and doesn’t miss a step. From engaging all the senses to really understanding the skin, this shave is impeccable. Using steamer to keep the skin and shave cream hydrated and proceeds to use hot steam towels, pre-shave oil, shave cream and a shaving brush and soap. Using a Feather Artist Club SS Straight Razor, John does his first pass. After a second pass to make sure he didn’t miss any stray hairs, he finishes off with facial moisturizer and aromatic aftershave. There’s nothing left to add here. It’s perfect. If you’re a barber looking to give the ultimate shaving experience, watch this video.
