Reviving Gentleman Culture and the Art of the Straight Razor Shave at the Barbershop
Men, when was the last time you pampered yourself? We’re not talking about putting your feet up after work or hitting a few holes on the golf course. We’re talking about a truly immersive experience that left your rejuvenated and feeling like a million bucks. There happens to be a Barbershop on the strip in Las Vegas that knows exactly what you need to look and feel your absolute best.
The Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails is a speakeasy with a twist. In addition to fine spirits and thriving whisky culture, the Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails is also where you’re going to find the best Vegas barbers who are masters at their craft – including the art of the straight razor shave.
There’s something undeniably elegant, sexy and masculine about a professional straight razor shave, and it’s an experience every man should have at least once in his life. When you’re in Vegas, there’s no reason to settle for the ordinary. Here’s why a straight razor shave at the Barbershop in Law Vegas in an experience you deserve.
Art of the Straight Razor Shave
In days long past, it used to be that the straight razor shave was “the” shave. It might be hard to imagine, but there was once a time when drug store shelves weren’t lined with stacks of cheap, disposable razors that never get snug against the skin, no matter what they claim.
The straight razor shave dates back thousands of years but today it has resurfaced as a symbol of the fine art of manliness – especially with the resurgence of meticulously groomed and detailed facial hair. You’d be hard-pressed to find a masterful barber that didn’t prefer the straight razor as their primary tool for transforming an ordinary guy into a gentleman.
A straight razor is a long, singular blade that’s glided across the skin at a very precise angle to provide the closest possible shave and to create sharp, detailed lines. The past few decades have seen men being perfectly content with the inferior shave that disposables provide. As beards and carefully groomed facial hair have come back into style and become important in gentleman culture, we’ve seen a resurgence of this classic, manly shaving method.
Unlike shaving with disposables, there’s an art to the straight razor shave. Not only does it require a completely different technique, it’s also about the experience. The experience of a hot towel and rich, creamy lather being applied to your skin, the smooth gentle glide of the razor across your face, and the feeling of ultimate smoothness afterward.
Should you take the leap and try a straight razor shave for yourself? The masterful barbers and the Barbershop in Las Vegas think so, and here’s why.
Benefits of a Straight Razor Shave
Aside from the fact that a straight razor shave will make you feel like a true gentleman, and a bit of a rebel, there are other more tangible benefits to a professional straight razor shave. A straight razor shave will elevate your physical appearance on a number of levels. Here’s how…
Let’s Get Close
Nothing beats a nice, close shave that leaves your face looking clean, chiseled and touchable. Unless you’re a complete newbie to the manly art of shaving, you probably know that nothing beats a single blade razor for achieving super close contact and minimizing irritation that can come with multiblade shavers. If you are new to shaving, trust us when we say that less is more as far as the number of blades is concerned. A single blade, straight razor being expertly glided along your skin is going to provide you with the tightest, closest shave possible.
Less Lumps, Bumps and Nicks
There’s nothing worse that bumps, nicks and irritation that follows a shave. Not only is shaving irritation uncomfortable, it can also tarnish your smooth appearance. A straight razor reduces razor burn, ingrown hairs, and nicks because it minimizes the number of times a blade glides across your skin. A single blade, that’s glided over your skin only once minimizes the stress on your skin.
Being Mindful of the Environment Looks Good On You
One of the benefits of a professional straight razor shave is that it reduces the piles of inferior quality, disposable razors that make their way into the trash. Whether you take on the challenge of mastering the straight razor shave yourself, or turn to a skilled professional, the straight razor shave is easier on the environment – not to mention your wallet.
Why Trust Only an Experienced Barber With Your Straight Razor Shave
A straight razor shave requires a technique that comes with a bit of a learning curve. The first few times you hold a straight razor in your hands can be intimidating. The weight, glide and angle are completely different that shaving with other methods, including a safety razor.
The learning curve is enough of a reason to trust your shave to the experts at the Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails but when you leave your straight razor shave to the professionals, you also get to sit back and enjoy the luxury of the experience.
At the Barbershop, you get to relax and let the stress melt away as our master barbers prepare your skin with warm cloths and only the finest shaving products. Our professional barbers take care of your skin with an ease and smoothness that leaves you looking and feeling your absolute best.
