HOW TO: Beard Shape Up

With Joth Davies from Savills Gentlemens Barbers

Step 1

Consult with patron and trim beard to desired length and shape.

Step 2

Mix a small amount of Pre-Shave Oil with Foaming Shave Oil in a bowl for an extra smooth shaving experience.

Step 3

Apply lather to face with a badger brush using circular motions to push the foam deep into the pores and soften the bristles.

Step 4

Apply a hot towel to further open the pores and allow the foam to penetrate deeper into the skin.

Step 5

Insert a fresh clean blade and shave with the grain on a 30 degree angle. If a second pass is needed, shave across but never against the grain.

Step 6

Apply a cold towel to shock the skin and close the pores for a longer lasting shave.

Step 7

Apply Moisturiser to increase the moisture levels and prevent skin from drying out.

Step 8

Apply Bay Rum aftershave to prevent infection of cuts, as well as to act as an astringent to reduce skin irritation.

Step 9

Apply Beard Oil to moisturise the facial hair and skin beneath. The oil is hydrating to the skin and helps soften and tame beard hair whilst reducing itchy skin.

Step 10

Remove blade and dispose in sharps box, place both razor and badger brush in disinfectant for 15-20 minutes then rinse thoroughly before re-use.
