I’m Theo, and I can’t wait for you to discover the right way to shave.

About 10 years ago, I met Mike in a barbershop in the city. He was drinking a beer while chatting with his pals, and we casually started talking about shaving, as one does.

He told us he was a traditional wet shaver who used a straight razor to shave his face.

Once I got to thinking about it, I realized that between all the ingrown hairs and razor burns, I had been missing out on the best way to shave.

And, well, as a young man in his mid-20s who only recently became interested in shaving with a straight razor, there wasn’t much information I could find online. After hours of research, the best I got was a handful of YouTube videos with terrible lighting.

(If you’ve ever watched a shaving tutorial, you’ll probably get what I’m talking about.) 

So what do you do when you can’t find the content you want?

You create it, of course!

This is how ShavingParlour started, and while we’ve come a long way since then, my drive remains the same: to help you ditch the dull blades. No more fumbling with multi-blade cartridges, no more exposure to toxic plastics, and no more wasting money on lotions and gels.

Since you’re here reading this, congratulations! You’re one step closer to a shaving transformation!

(And don’t worry—Mike received his case of beer for inspiring me!)
