Face

For most men, shaving is nothing more than a tiresome part of their morning routine. It doesn’t have to be that way – at Bou’s For Men Barber Shop shaving can be an indulgent experience, particularly if someone does all the work for you!

Treat yourself and let our traditionally trained barbers take away the monotony of shaving with the following services:

  • Cut-Throat Razor Lather Shave
  • Beard Trim
  • Moustache Trim
  • Ear and Brow Shave
  • Shaving Style Consultation, without charge

The Lather Shave

If you’ve never had a traditional cut-throat razor lather shave and hot towel, you are simply missing out.

Capturing the magic of a cut-throat razor shave or trying to describe just how extremely relaxing the experience is boarders on near impossible, but we’ll give it a go…

As you sink back into one our custom made barber chairs the first thing you’ll experience is the scented hot towel placed over your face to soften the skin and make you relaxed.

A good quality pre-shave oil is then massaged into the skin to protect and help the razor glide smoothly across the face.

Using a good quality shaving brush, a luxurious shaving cream imported from London will then be applied to the face in a circular motion to produce the rich lather. Our master barber will shave your face with precision and traditional technique to give you the closest smoothest shave known to man. An alum block is used to close the pores and soothe any irritation.

To complete this truly indulgent experience the skin is moisturized and splash of expensive cologne is applied so that you can carry on the experience throughout the day.

This is the signature service at Bou’s For Men Barber Shop. It is the most traditional, and some would say the only way to shave.

Hair Care

  • One of the principal causes of damage to men’s hair is towel drying. To minimise the damage, shake out the excess water and then pat your hair with the towel in the direction it grows.
  • Uncontrollable locks? To pacify frizzy hair use a good moisturising conditioner or a serum to add shine and manageability.
  • If you are used to ordering your haircut by a clipper comb numbering system, know you can expect more skill from a barber, and even get a better haircut than you may be used to.
  • Choosing the styling product is not easy. Ask your barber and they can easily recommend a few solid options, including the one they used just after your cut.
  • Eating well, drinking plenty of water and getting lots of sleep will promote faster hair growth. The hair is often a reflection of the entire body.

Face Care

  • Take care of your skin! Exfoliating, washing, and shaving are all tough on your face, you need to soothe and protect it with a good moisturiser.
  • Half an hour before you shave, use a cleanser or a face scrub to remove the dead cells on your skin and open up the pores.
  • A secret to keep your beard well-groomed and attractive is conditioning and moisturizing.
  • Carefully trimmed sideburns can accentuate a square face or narrow a round face. Well designed beards and moustaches to add the illusion of fullness to a narrow face.
  • Cheap products mean you get what you pay for. Invest in the products used on the face so that your skin looks its very best over time.

Fashion Tips

  • Dressing sharp helps with your confidence.
  • The classic men’s jacket is a classic wardrobe piece for a reason.  It makes any man look respectable.
  • Dress for your body type. Dressing for your body type doesn’t just mean wearing clothes that fit – although that’s a good place to start. It also means accentuating your positive attributes and taking the focus away from your negative ones.
  • “A well tied tie is the first serious step in life”  - Oscar Wilde
  • When in doubt, choose a white shirt. It will go with anything.
  • Keep it simple! You want a wardrobe that looks great on you, but don’t overdo it.
  • If there is one thing people will notice, its your shoes. Show that you’re a man of taste by investing in a great pair of shoes and keeping them in pristine condition.

Barber Tips

  • The barber shop is a great place to talk with other men. The 1880′s – 1940′s were the golden age for barbershops. Men socialized in all male hangouts, and barbershops rivaled saloons in popularity.
  • When you walk out of the barber shop with a sharp haircut, you can’t help but feel a bit of manly swagger creep into your step. So next time you spot that familiar red and white striped pole, stop in.
  • Try a old fashioned side part. Fit for a movie star, the classic 1930s side swept hairstyle oozes charm and sophistication. It simply involves brushing or combing hair to one side and creating a simple part. It’s the definition of unfussy elegance and low maintenance.
  • When the barber pushes your head down to get to a certain spot, let it happen, resistance is futile.
  • For the best possible cut and style, tell your barber exactly what you want. Go on, don’t be shy!
