About

Hi – I’m Theo Adorno. Like many men, I started shaving when I was a teenager. My friends and I did it as part of growing up. We would joke around in the bathroom, trying to see who could get the cleanest shave.

It was never about having a perfect face; shaving gave me a sense of power, confidence, and independence. I could take care of myself, even if it were just this small way.

As I got older, my interest in shaving grew. I started reading blogs and watching videos about grooming and shaving techniques. I loved learning about the history of shaving and the different available tools.

Eventually, I started my website dedicated to men’s shaving.

By this time, I was a barber and had a lot of experience with different razors, blades, and creams. I wanted to share my knowledge with other men interested in shaving. And so The Shaving Parlour was born.

I wanted to create a place where guys could come to learn about all things shaving. From the best razors and blades to the best shaving creams and aftershave, I wanted to share everything I had learned with the world.

And that’s how The Shaving Parlour came to be! You see, shaving isn’t just about having a perfect face. It’s about so much more than that. It’s about confidence, control, and above all else, it’s about being the best version of yourself.

My promise to you:

I will provide the information you need to make shaving an easy and enjoyable experience.

My goal was to be the go-to source for all things shaving. You will receive the latest news, reviews, tips, and advice on all things shaving. We will never give you anything less than the truth.

Thank you for being here, and I hope you enjoy your time at The Shaving Parlour!

Product Review Process

First, I start by doing my research. I read everything I can about the product, from the manufacturer’s website to online reviews.

Once I’ve done my research, it’s time to put the product to the test. First, I follow the manufacturer’s directions carefully, paying close attention to all the details. Then, I take note of how the product performs. Do I get a close shave? Does it irritate my skin? How does it compare to other products on the market?

Finally, I write up my review. I include all the relevant information my readers need to know, from the product’s price to its pros and cons. I also add my recommendations. I’ll let my readers know if I think a certain product is worth checking out.
