The Art of Shaving

Master Class on the Art of Shaving

Welcome to this fascinating section on shaving; it is a particular specialist area of the male grooming market that we hope you will enjoy!

The art of the professional shave at one time was the barber's most popular service, but over many years this skill has gone into decline, due to the introduction of the safety razor and the electric shaver. However today, professional barbers have reignited this age old practice. In addition to satisfying the beard trimming, shaving, and cutting needs of the contemporary man, barbershops have become places where shaving information tips are readily exchanged - an oasis of knowledge for the well groomed gentleman.

In the following lessons we will look at all the techniques used for shaving and cover the following topics:

  • The history of shaving and its decline
  • Shaving materials, tools and equipment
  • Consultation and preparation
  • Wet and dry shaver methods
  • Shaving techniques
  • Luxury shave procedure
  • Common shaving problems
  • Health and safety

We have extensive videos of our procedures. Remember please leave a comment if there are any issues or questions, we are here to guide you through this learning process.
