An Unrivalled Ritual: The Hot Towel Treatment

The transcendent journey of the hot towel shave commences as you ease into a traditional barber’s chair. Our master barbers – maestros of their craft – drape a crisp white towel around your neck – the prelude to an unforgettable symphony of grooming. A second towel, steeped in hot water and expertly wrung out, is skilfully applied to your face. The gentle heat radiating from the towel envelops your skin, lulling your senses into a tranquil state.

The warmth opens your pores, softens your facial hair and prepares your skin, creating the perfect canvas for the shave.

The Art of the Traditional Wet Shave in London

Once your skin is adequately prepared, the real artistry begins. Using only the finest shaving products and a traditional badger hair brush, the barber applies a generous layer of premium shaving cream to your face.

The cream, warmed by the brush, is massaged into your skin to continue the delightful facial treatment, lifting the hair follicles and adding an extra layer of heat to further soften your hair. The razor, a vintage straight blade, is brandished with a surgeon’s precision. As the blade makes contact with your skin – using the correct shaving technique – it glides smoothly over the contours of your face, and you experience a close shave unmatched by any modern razor.

The sharpness of the blade, combined with the barber’s skill, delivers a seamless, invigorating wet shave, the sensation of which is nothing short of divine. The traditional wet shave is interspersed with additional applications of the hot towel, maintaining warmth and relaxation throughout the process.

The repetition of these steps makes the hot towel treatment unique – the application of lather, the expert glide of the razor, and the soothing press of the hot towel – induce a meditative state, transporting you into a realm of utter tranquillity.

The Perfect Finish: Post-Shave Ritual at R.W. Wolf Barbers

After the final remnants of the shaving cream have been wiped clean by our expert barbers, a cold towel is applied to your face. This refreshing sensation gives the opposite effect of hot towels, tightening the pores and locking in moisture, sealing off your shave in the perfect way.

The hot towel treatment concludes with the application of a soothing aftershave balm a final flourish that leaves your skin smooth, refreshed, and fragrant.
