How Shaving Is Meant To Be
Electric and disposable razors seem to make shaving “easier”, but is the rough shave and irritation really worth it in the end? The fact of the matter is that those razors just don’t cut it when it comes to ensuring that you look your best. Shaving may be a mark of being a man, but there’s a higher level of shaving designed for the true gentleman: a classic straight-razor shave from a professional barber, just like at the old-school barbershops. Whether you’re getting a full shave or just a trim, there’s no substitute for precision.
At 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon of Barrington, we’ve re-created the experience of those classic barbershops and added our own modern style. We have expertly trained, professional barbers that are ready to give you the closest and most precise shave around that will leave you looking great and feeling even better. Choose from the shaving services below that we offer here at our modern salon designed just for me, and experience the 18|8 difference.
The Classic Straight-Razor Shave
It may take you 5 minutes to shave in the morning, but the 18|8 classic shave is a full 30-minute experience. Once you get seated and comfortable at your semi-private station, your barber will go to work. It all starts with the hot towel and hot lather to relax you and ensure a smooth and comfortable shave. Then, the straight razor in the hands of an expert will make sure you look fresh and clean, while we finish everything off with an aromatic hot towel to leave you feeling completely refreshed. If you want to enhance the experience even further, you can also add a rejuvenating face treatment, complete with a facial cleanser and moisture treatment to ensure that your skin looks and feels healthy.
The 18|8 Executive Shave Package
Take your shaving experience to the next level with our shave package. This combines our classic straight razor shave with the signature of 18|8, the executive haircut. Our stylist will work with you to make sure you get the perfect haircut to match your personal style, along with the precise shave to give you an all around look that’s on point. While that will make sure you look your best, we want to make sure you feel your best too, so you still get to enjoy the aromatic hot towel finish, but we also include a 5-minute neck and shoulder massage, plus a full shampoo and conditioner treatment. You’ll walk out of our salon feeling like a brand new man. Stop beating up your face with those electric or disposable razors and come experience what a shave should be like.
