Shaving top tips
For the best results, it's worth taking time to really soften your skin and facial hair. The best way is to have a hot shower or wash your face several times with warm water.
Next add pre-shave oil to your face and mix up your shaving cream or gel with a brush. You want to apply this in a circular motion.
Secure a fresh blade into your Angle Razor and you are ready to shave.
2. Hold your nerve
Hold the top of your head and pull the skin flat and tight, a slight tilt of the head will stretch it even further. Top tip: move your mouth to tighten the skin on your upper and lower lips.
Taking the razor in your free hand find a balanced grip. It's worth having a dry run with each hand before shaving for the first time; you want to feel in control.
3. The stroke
From the bottom of your haircut/near your ear make the first short shave. All going well, repeat just below and rinse the removed foam and hair under the tap.
A 30° angle will avoid pulling hairs and reduce the chance of cutting the skin. If your skin is well prepared, blade sharp and the angle correct, the razor will glide.
The foam will guide you to where to shave next (but keep the neck til last). Top tip: try to follow the direction of hair growth on your neck.
4. Cleaning up
Clean your face with water and soap again before doing a second pass to get any stray hairs.
Once you’ve finished, rinse your face in cold water to close your pores and apply moisturiser in a patting gesture to avoid irritation.
Don't forget to rinse your Angle Razor and dry with a towel.
