What is a shave and how does it work?
A traditional barbershop shave, also known as a hot towel shave, is a treatment that incorporates the use of a hot, steamed towel which is applied to the face during the shave. Not only does the addition of the hot towel feel relaxing during a shave, but it also comes with a number of benefits that make this treatment such a popular service.
One of the main benefits of a hot towel shave is that it soothes irritation that is typically associated with shaving. The steam from the hot towel helps eliminate irritation from razor burn and rashes, also helping remove any existing ingrown hairs. Furthermore, the steam and heat from the towel also open the pores, making it much easier to get a cleaner shave, getting rid of any dirt, oil, and dead skin that may be present.
During your hot towel shave, you can typically expect your appointment to start with your barber inspecting the direction of your hair growth. Once they have assessed your facial hair, they’ll apply a hot towel to your face to open your pores and cleanse the skin. Next, shaving cream will be applied to your face, and using a blade, your barber will begin to shave your face in sections, repeating the process until the shave is finished. When your shave is completed, your barber will again apply a hot towel to your face as a final step to soothe the skin and open the pores to absorb aftershave.
