Traditional Wet Shaving & More!
I haven’t updated the blog in a long time! 2015 has been hectic and busy.
I completed AIB Barber School at the end of February and became a licensed Barber in March. I was mentored for a month at Your Dad’s Barber Shop in Dunedin, then helped open Classic Image Barbershop in St. Petersburg; I worked there for 2 months before settling at Leo’s Barbershop in New Port Richey, where I’ve been since June.
I cut hair 2 days/wk and do hot towel shaves 4 days/wk. I’m trying to get established, so that hasn’t left much time for blogging or creating videos. However one take, less edited vlog content has been quite popular on YouTube. (I prefer to plan, produce, and edit my videos with graphics, which usually takes 6-10 hrs per video.)
Because of purchasing barber supplies and tools, I haven’t purchased many wet shaving products this year. For my birthday, in October, I received The Blades Grim Smolder shave soap, it’s very nice; I read online that it is produced by the same artisan that makes Maggard Razor’s soaps. Then I purchased the RazoRock Plissoft synthetic shave brush and RR Eleganza shave soap from Italian Barber. I can recommend all 3.
Until next time, shave well.
