Classic Touch Shave
The big difference in a professional hot shave is that the barber removes your beard with a blade, not an electric razor or drug store safety razor, both of which can leave your skin dry and irritated. The first step is for him or her to apply a hot towel to the beard area. Then your face is lathered with shaving cream. Next comes the shave. Lastly, the barber will gently rub a moisturizer into your newly-shaved skin and apply yet another hot towel.
