Parsa's Top Tips on Achieving the Perfect Shave

"Achieving the perfect look  is all down to person choice. Some prefer a stubble-look, others prefer a clean-shave, both of which have different requirements in terms of fitting in to the rest of your grooming regime. For the stubble-look, book yourself in for an appointment 1-2 days before your big event. If you're wanting a wet-shave, this must be booked in 1 day after your facial. I'd highly recommend booking yourself in for a complimentary consultation to discuss your desired look prior to any special occasion.

During the summer months, skin can become dehydrated, so it's important to drink plenty of water to keep it supple and smooth and to avoid any nasty grazes. If in doubt, ask your barber about the best way to keep skin looking fresh during the warmer climates.

For your aftercare, I'd recommend using The Refinery's Post Shave Balm which soothes, hydrates and comforts the skin. If you'd like a fresh sensation upon application, try storing this product in the fridge. For the fuller-beards, using a small amount of The Refinery's Shave Oil will condition the beard, giving it a healthy look."
