How to Shave with Straight Razors : How to Apply Men’s Shaving Cream
Hi I’m Joyce with Major League Trim, I will
be speaking on behalf of Expert Village in this next clipping we would be talking about
the straight razor shave. Now that he is nice and warm you want to take the towel off of
his face and you have already pat him dry. You are going to use the oils that you have
already put on his face and incorporated with the shaving cream. A lot of barbers like to
use a hot lather, in this case we are just going to use a regular shaving cream. It is
the consistency of a creamy substance rather than a gel. There are all different types
of shaving cream; some of them are gel, some of them are cream. You just choose the one
that is best for your skin type and we already assist our plan, we know that he has very
sensitive skin. So you want to be very careful especially with a open blade alway going with
the grain never against so you can prevent razor bumps and any type of irritation. So
you want to rub that in really good, get that in there. You want to keep his face warm and
moist. I alway put water on my hand to help keep it moist and spread around properly.
This would also prevent drag when you put the water you don’t want drag cause then you
have razor burn.
