Part 2/4 A demonstration of how to wet shave. For most guys, shaving is considered a loathsome chore, however if done right, shaving can be enjoyable and even relaxing!

Wet shaving is the traditional technique of shaving with hot water and a single blade (DE razor or Straight) using a brush (badger, boar, or synthetic) to lather a cream or soap. Modern wet shaving uses multiple passes to reduce and finally eliminate whiskers. (Without irritation!) Wet shaving may take a little longer than shaving with a multiblade cartridge razor and goo from a can, but it is healthier for your skin and the results are much better too!

The second shaving pass will be Across the Grain (XTG). This means shaving across the direction of whisker growth (from ear to chin). The second pass takes less time because you are only further reducing the leftover stubble from the first pass. You should be "smooth" enough to quit after the second pass. A third pass is optional...

I shot this series of videos in early 2010. My personal routine and technique have changed/improved since then, but I haven't had time to make any additional videos. Hopefully these will be informative and enjoyable to watch
