Benefits of a getting a professional, straight razor shave at Weldon Barber Spokane – Part 2
You’ve already learned that Weldon Barber Spokane, in all four locations, offers professional straight razor shaves. Plus, the benefits of a Weldon Barber Spokane shave were discussed in our last post. You get a relaxing experience that also exfoliates, stimulates the skin, and promotes the production of collagen … resulting in skin that looks and feels smoother and younger. Here are more benefits!
No More Nicks, Cuts, or Razor Burn
An important first step that our skilled barbers at Weldon Barber Spokane take is to moisten the beard with hot towels before beginning the actual shave. Most men simply apply soap or plain water to their beards, and then shave away, setting themselves up for cuts, nicks, and razor burn. A hot towel treatment before the shave softens the skin and stubborn facial hair and all but guarantees a smooth and effortless shave.
Our barbers also use shaving creams specifically designed to moisturize and protect the skin, ensuring a smooth shave and a healthy and youthful appearance. Furthermore, the extra-sharp blade guarantees a close shave, but not too close to irritate the skin.
Finally, our professional barbers use a single blade instead of multiple blades for the simple reason that multiple blades tend to pick up debris and rake it across the face, embedding it into the skin and causing irritation. You’ll discover just how much more comfortable it is when there is only one blade moving across your skin instead of two or three. Continue reading “Perfect Shave, Weldon Barber Spokane – Part 2” »
Benefits of a getting a professional, straight razor shave at Weldon Barber Spokane – Part 1
Weldon Barber Spokane offers straight razor shaves. Why? Shaving is a routine chore that most men engage in at least once every day. These same men, however, often avoid letting their barbers give them a professional shave after getting their hair cut, either because they feel they don’t have the time or simply won’t allow themselves to receive this extra pampering. These men simply aren’t aware of the many benefits of receiving a professional shave from one of our trained barbers at Weldon Barber Spokane.
A Masculine Version of a Facial for Men
Getting a “hot-towel, straight-razor” shave is the male equivalent of getting a facial. While men may balk at letting someone give them a facial, they can still receive the benefits of one by getting a professional shave instead.
Our barbers use a special, ultra-sharp straight razor which exfoliates the skin, removing the top layer of dead skin cells. Moving the straight razor across the skin, going WITH (instead of against) the grain of the beard, is a form of microdermabrasion which also stimulates new cell growth and collagen production. As a result, your skin will look and feel smoother and younger.

Embrace the Pocket Square
So you’ve got on a perfectly tailored blazer and your current favorite tie. Guess what? So does the next guy.

Here are your options.
Fold a white handkerchief in quarters and slip it into your breast pocket, folded-side down. It should stick out about half an inch.
