The Classic Straight Razor Shave

At 18|8, our classic straight razor shave is more than just a close shave: it’s our signature barbershop experience. From the moment you walk through the door, you’ll be greeted by a cold beverage from our fully-stocked fridge and the big game playing on our widescreen TVs, giving you everything you need to shake off the stresses of the day-to-day. From there, you’ll be led to your own semi-private grooming station, where you’ll get to experience a shave unlike any you’ve ever had before.

It all starts with a hot towel treatment, helping you relax, opening up your pores, and softening your facial hair for a truly close shave. From there, you’ll get a luxurious hot shave cream lather, which moisturizes and lubricates your skin. Then comes the main event: a classic straight razor shave so close and comfortable you won’t believe we’re even using a blade. Once your face is smoother than it’s been since you were 10 years old, we’ll finish off with an aromatic hot towel treatment to leave you fresh-faced, invigorated, and ready to take on anything. What could possibly be better than that?

Mustache & Beard Trimming

While some may opt for the wildman look, most men prefer to keep their beard and mustache clean and in line – and at 18|8, we are experts. Our professional stylists can help you pick the perfect shape for your beard and mustache followed by a professionally executed trim, to keep your facial hair in shape and growing properly. You can also finalize the look with a razor line-up during which our licensed barber will edge every line to absolute perfection utilizing a precision straight-edge razor. By the end of your treatment, your face will look like a priceless work of art and you’ll feel like a brand-new man.

Head Shaving Services

For some guys, the best look is something bold – and we can help you turn your hair into a powerful statement with our head-shaving services. If you opt for the fierce style of a full head shave, you owe it to yourself to get the best, and at 18|8, that’s what we’re offering. We’ll give you an expert shave so comfortable and close that people will practically be able to see themselves in it – so please do forgive them if they can’t stop staring.
