There's something about a straight razor blade, mixed with a dash of nostalgia, that adds to the allure of what is possibly the closest shave you'll ever achieve. There's a reason many professional barbers wield the straight razor as their weapon of choice.
The Benefits of a Straight-Razor Shave
Simply put, adding the hot towel service to your haircut can be described in three words: it feels amazing! You get to relax in a comfortable chair while the hot towel is applied to your skin. The steam from the towel helps your hair and skin to relax and infiltrate the senses. When it's all over, you'll feel fresh, relaxed, rejuvenated, and most importantly, you'll look good.
A barber isn't just anyone who cuts and shaves hair or trims beards. They are professionals whose work are invaluable and go a long way to determine if you will be having a great week or an embarrassing one. Choosing a barber is like choosing a spouse or your clothes.
It was the belief of the Bluebeard-in-Chief – a tough stubble sufferer himself – that he could create something daringly different for the men of the world; something anti-corporate; something straight-talking.
In the summer that followed, he proudly launched our brand to the masses to universal acclaim. And alongside the barber boom, we grew and grew. It was all hands on deck to create products that stayed true to our roots as our range doubled, then tripled, in size.
