This past Friday we had a grand opening for a new barber shop here in Warman, SK. I received an invite to attend the celebration at The Barber Corner. This new spot (a section of Passions Beauty Salon) offers a traditional barber shop area for us gents to enjoy. They offer hair cuts, beard maintenance and the classic hot shave. I figured what better way to celebrate a grand opening than with a hot shave myself.
I booked in for a shave with Barber Harder, and he graciously offered to hook me up. I arrived shortly before the grand opening began so I had that clean shave to start the evening. The shave started with moisturizing spritz and a preshave oil. I then got wrapped in the hot towel treatment. He then prepped me for a shave. The product he used for the shave was a brush-less/lather-less cream. If there was a negative to the experience, this would be it. Performance was more than fine, but it just wasn’t the traditional hot shave experience I was expecting. For hardware he used a Kai shavette with a Captain Sharp blade. It performed as I expected it would. A couple passes and then he finished up with a post shave product. I didn’t get the name but he mentioned it was a natural product from Australia. It was really nice stuff, super hydrating. Cory finished up by cleaning up my neckline and I was on my way.
After the shave I stuck around for the grand opening festivities. A couple of beverages, a couple of slices of Za and good visit with some fine gents. A great way to spend an evening. A hot shave is always a nice treat, and it is awesome to have the option so close to home. I LOVE the fact they have online booking on the website, making it easy to pick an appointment around any schedule. I look forward to the next time I get to treat myself to a hot shave.
