The Art of Shaving

Whether you have been shaving for a couple of years or a couple of decades, getting the perfect shave may seem The Straight Razor Shaveimpossible.  A great shave will leave you feeling confident, clean, and ready to take on the day while a bad shave will leave you with nicks, stubble and razor bumps.  If you’re ready to say goodbye to your 5 o’clock shadow, follow our guide for achieving the perfect shave.

The best shave possible is a result of quality grooming products and superior shaving techniques.  Take a look at our breakdown of what you need for the perfect shave:

Grooming Products:

A great starting point for the perfect shave is quality products.  Facial hair is one of the toughest hairs on your body and the only way to get a close shave is with a sharp razor.  Opulence of Southern Pines offers a number of quality razors to suit your preferences including Edwin Jagger Shave Accessories and Merkur Double Edge Razors. To keep those blades from going dull, check out the RazorPit Razor Blade Sharpener to extend its life that much longer. On average users get 6 times the number of shaves compared to not using the RazorPit.

In addition to razors, you’ll also want a shaving brush, pre-shaving oil, shaving gel and after-shave moisturizer.  We have everything you need for a quality shave from brands like Proraso, Castle Forbes, Simpsons, Dreadnought, Acca Kappa and more!  Visit our website to browse our entire selection of men’s grooming products.

The Basics:

Now that you are prepared with the proper equipment, it’s time to start shaving!  First, wash your face with warm water and soap to remove oils, open follicles and leave hair wet.  Next, apply a quality shaving cream by using a shave brush in a circular motion.  Acca Kappa provides moisturizing shaving cream to lubricate your face so the razor will glide smoothly and effortlessly.  When you’re ready to shave, rinse your blade under hot water before you begin and after every few swipes.  You should always shave in the direction of the beard growth or else you run the risk of cuts and inflammation.  After shaving, wash your face thoroughly and apply an after-shave moisturizer that will leave your skin feeling smooth and looking healthy.
