This video describes the process of getting a perfect Italian barber shave. The presenter suggests that shaving cream be applied with a shaving brush to loosen the facial hair and moisturize the skin. Shaving in the shower or directly after the shower is best, because the beard will have had a chance to loosen up while in the shower. The presenter then lathers up his face and shaves for a first pass. Next he will re-lather his face for a second pass. When finished shaving the second pass, the presenter will apply aftershave and offer his smooth face for inspection. It is suggested that a blade be used for no more than twelve shaves.
