Seeing as we went from winter to summer here in New York City pretty rapidly, it gave a ton of men very little time to adjust their shaving and skin regiment, especially with the overt sweating we have been dealing with for the past week or so. I got my haircut as soon as possible this Saturday to keep myself looking fresh and sexy (as usual), however there are some of us that prefer the DIY method and are looking for the latest advancements in doing so. Look no further, than The Art of Shaving.
I believe that when it comes to personal grooming, price points should matter to a certain extent but it really is about the quality of what you are getting over the quantity, especially with this. The Art of Shaving has so many different types of products and services, many of which are located in several retail stores across Manhattan, that will satisfy you in more ways than one when it comes to all things shaving and grooming.
Here are their top of the line products with full detailed information, so you are prepared to line it up shaving style and impress the guy or girl in your life with how goddamn good looking you are.
