I stumbled upon the video below of a Japanese traditional barber performing a wet shave. Not only did he use all the techniques that I have been encouraging people to use for a good shave.
- Small strokes
- holding the skin tight
- Going with the grain to start with
- Then against the grain for the smoothest finish
From a shaving point of view, it's very informative but what I found most interesting was how relaxing it was and that is why I wanted to share it.
Its a little crazy out there at the moment and when talking to friends there is a lot of talk around anxiety and fear so hopefully this video gives you a sense of calm, I know it did for me.
Look after each other out there, wash your hands, call up people you know are at risk, just be the best human you can be.
