To learn how to build that mens shaving routine, our esteemed barber Harmony can show you her way around a razor.

Follow her tips and soon enough, getting a close shave will be second nature.

1. Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate

I can’t say this enough, keeping the skin moist and hydrated from start to finish is the number 1 key to a clean men’s shave. After a hot shower is best.

2. Use a shaving brush. (Badger Brush)

Wet your shave brush with warm water put shaving cream into a bowl and whip/stir before applying to the face this will create a thicker lather to help the cream get underneath the hair and create a barrier against your skin.

3. Stretch the skin.

Stretching your skin as much as possible is so important for the ultimate men’s shave. This will force the hair to stand upright for a more even finish and help to prevent cuts.

4. Two passes.

1- With the grain
2- Across the grain

What is this?! Your first pass should always be with the grain of your hair growth. Once you’ve completed your entire face, re-lather and do your second pass across the grain.

5. Cold towel and moisturize.

Two for one!! Apply a cold towel or face cloth directly to the face.

This is to close the pores and calm your skin. No men’s shave is complete without this step.

Then finally apply a good amount of after shave balm or moisturizer to your face and massage.
