salon straight-razor shave or DIY

healthy1healthy1 Posts: 15Registered Users
I was wondering do most men do their own straight razor shaves or do they go get it done at a salon. It is a bit costly here and I am trying to decide should I go ahead and learn how to do it myself or should I get it done at a salon.

I want it to be styled and I am not sure if I should experiment on my face with school starting in a few days. But then again, I do not think I can see myself paying ~$40-50 every 2-3 days to have a shave maintained by a salon. Thought?

    Would it be possible to follow the style set by one salon shave, and then maintain it yourself?

    I am really considering that option since I have not even placed my order on Amazon yet for the straight razor. But the more I read into it, the more I think I can just do it myself. I just need more time. Also, unless I video the barber then I will not know what they actually did.

    Hey, that gives me an idea. Would YouTube have any videos about how best to do the job oneself?

    They do have some videos of which I am perusing when I have free time. But school starts on Monday and I need to have this done by then. I think I will just bite the bullet and get it done 'professionally' the first time and then I will do my own thing when my own kit arrives from Amazon.
