THE BARBERSHOP SHAVE: A RETURN TO TRADITION AND ENJOYMENT
June 22, 2023
What was once a trip to the barber for a relaxing shave and a solid chin wag has long became a daily chore to despise. Luckily, it seems as though we are slowly moving full circle back to where it all began, as more and more men choose a traditional hot towel shave and some good old fashioned barbershop vibes.
The Lost Art Of Shaving And The Old School Barbershop
Have you ever heard the saying to cut your nose off to spite your face?
Well it makes a good analogy for describing man's long term relationship with shaving:
In our quest for speed and convenience, we all too willingly gave up the indulgence of the barbershop shave. What was once a leisurely trip to the barbershop with quality time for self, a hot towel shave and usually some good ol' barbershop banter, become nothing more than a quotidian task at home.
In the days before spray on shaving foam in a can and shitty throw way razors, a visit to the barbershop was about more than just a clean shave. It was a bustling hub of social discourse where men caught up on current events and discussed community issues.
Sadly, the advent of the safety razor led to the gradual decline of this environment. As men adopted the home shave, the social release and the enjoyment of the barbershop shave was lost…….., but not forgotten.
The Return Of Tradition And Enjoyment
As we find ourselves overrun by the hectic nature of modern life, men are no less pressed for time than their predecessors, yet for an increasing number, they have once again come to appreciate the respite offered by the old-world barbershop vibe and a traditional hot towel shave at the barbershop.
As they kick back in the barber's chair, they experience the age-old craft of the cut-throat shave and an escape from the daily grind, a moment to relax and recharge. It’s rediscovery of the lost indulgence and extra time taken to enjoy the whole process.
