Barber Tips

Getting a classic shave for men is as simple as going to the barber. When you go to the barber, you are able to get a shave that is so close and so clean that you didn’t think it was possible. Going to the barber is a great thing to do every once in a while, but for the most part you’re going to have to shave your own face to your satisfaction. However, if you are yearning for a barber shave without having to go all the way out to the barber, the alternative presents itself that perhaps you can learn to give yourself a barber shave! While it might seem impossible, you can learn to implement the same techniques that the barber uses with just a few easy tips.

Tip #1: Apply the shaving cream with a badger hair brush. Using a shaving brush like the one they use in the barber shop is a great idea. Because there are so many different kinds of shaving brushes, it might seem a little difficult to know which one is the best. As a rule of thumb, any badger hair shaving brush will give you a very clean and exfoliated application, and you are sure to love the texture of the brush on your face as you apply the shaving cream before your shave.

Tip #2: Invest in a straight razor. The barber in the barber shop uses a straight razor to shave you, and there is really no reason why you wouldn’t want to have that same close shave at home. While straight razors are very dangerous when improperly handled, if you have been to the barber shop and seen how they are used, then you know that there is nothing to worry about when it comes to straight razors. If you are not very familiar with the straight razor, then you could go to your local barber and ask all the information you need in order to more fully understand how it can be such an effective tool.

Tip #3: Let yourself relax. When most men go to the barber shop, they do so with the intent to relax a little bit and let someone else take care of their shaving needs. This is a very therapeutic outlook to have on the shaving process as a whole. Even though you are the person who shaves your face every morning, you don’t have to adopt the idea that you can’t use your shaving time as a time to relax. When you invest in good shaving tools, you can rest assured knowing that you will be getting a great shave. Carry that mindset with you are you perform the shaving process, and you will see that shaving can be fun and relaxing, and not a waste of time at all.
