May the 4th be with you

May 3, 2014

We are well and truly entering the wintery season now. Temperatures have dropped and I’m seeing a lot more hats and jackets just in the last week.

 

If you haven’t decided to grow a big woolly beard for warmth then maybe you should consider booking in for one of our traditional hot towel shaves to warm up. It’s the kind of thing every man should experience at least once in their lifetime.

Smee’s unusual techniques are not used in our store…however I hope you will be so relaxed under the towel you wouldn’t notice this either.

For our wet shaves we use a Proraso pre-shave product to prep the skin and hair. You then get to relax under a nice hot towel for a few minutes before we brush on some Taylor of Old Bond St shaving cream. We use a straight razor with a new blade for each customer so you get the closest shave possible. Another hot towel is applied for good measure. The shave is finished off with a soothing oil that moisturizes, smells great and prevents ingrown hairs.

 

If a traditional shave isn’t your thing you could always opt to come and have a warming whiskey on our late night – Thursdays we are open until 6:30 and have beer and whiskey available.

 

Since there are no public holidays this month, let us know what we should be celebrating this month (other than Mother’s day) on our facebook page. Do you know of any great events this month people should know about?  - www.facebook.com/barbersandmerchants

For all the star wars fans that are excited/dubious/opinionated about the remake being made – May the 4th be with you guys!
