A traditional wet shave is a relaxing and therapeutic experience and many people consider it to be better for your skin than shaving with a mass produced blade cartridge (one blade as opposed to 2, 3, or more in a cartridge). When you visit Michael Angelo Barbers, you can enjoy quite possibly the best shave in Teddington. Whether you’re already a big fan of the traditional wet shave, or have never had one, we’re ready to show you how smooth your face can really feel. We always strive to make sure that you leave our barbershop feeling and looking great, having had the perfect shave!

Our barbers have years of wet shave experience and you’ll enjoy one of the best wet shaves around when you visit us in Teddington.

What can I expect during a wet shave?

Hot towels are applied to the face in order to soften the beard. This is also a very soothing experience. Then, lather is applied using a traditional shaving brush. This process softens and lifts the hairs and opens facial pores, softening the skin in preparation for shaving.

The shave itself is done with a razor using very little pressure. When the shave has been done, the face is rinsed free of any remaining lather. This also serves to close the pores of the skin.
