MAINTENANCE: home shaving

Hot Towel Shave at The Barber Club, Turre.

Home Shaving

It would be great to shaved professionally every morning but, in reality, shaving is frequently done in a rush before leaving for work. There’s no real way to avoid this, but treat yourself to a good shave at weekends.

{1}. Open up your pores by soaking a flannel under the hot tap until it is steaming, and then hold it against your face for a minute. Alternatively, shave in a hot bath and allow the steam to do the same job.

{2}. Use a shaving cream or soap. It is simply not possible to get a good shave with a shaving gel.

{3}. For those with sensitive skin, use a moisturiser instead of a shaving cream. Something like aqueous moisturising cream will work just as well and wont cause skin reactions.

{4}. Using a circular motion, apply the soap to your skin with a brush. Your stubble will stand on end making the shave easier and closer.

{5). Generally, modern, multi-blade razors are extremely good if kept clean: never use disposable razors.

{6}. An electric razor will not shave you as closely as a multi-blade razor: like a hovercraft, they tend to buzz over the surface but never get to the root.

{7}. Check which way the hair on your face grows. Shave in the direction the hair grows, especially if you have sensitive skin or if your are prone to bleeding. The growth direction changes on different parts of the face, especially on the neck.

{8}. For a close shave, put another hot flannel on your face for a minute to open the pores again.

{9}. Brush on another application of shaving cream, and then shave in the opposite direction to which your hair grows.

{10}. Once finished, run your flannel under very cold water and hols it against your face. This will close up your pores and help seal your skin.

{11}. Moisturise as soon as possible with a moisturiser, a shaving balm or aftershave gel.

According to the Siroko website:

The reasons why cyclists remove their body hair depend on whether we are talking about a pro, an amateur who competes, an amateur who is addicted to cycling or a simple bicycle tourist. Those reasons can be outlined as follows:

  1. Aesthetics. Top argument based on the idea that we look more like PRO riders with our legs shaved or waxed. 
  2. Peer pressure. You are more likely to see a cyclist with body hair riding alone than in a group. The group influences what we do and how we behave.
  3. Massage. The masseur or physiotherapist will appreciate shaved or waxed legs because it makes their job easier. Besides, it helps the application and absorption of creams.
  4. Reducing the risk of severe skin damage in the event of a fall or injury. Lack of body hair makes cleaning and treating wounds easier and speeds up healing.
  5. Better breathability and cooling for the legs as sweat evaporates faster and moisture does not accumulate in our hairs.
  6. Marginal gains. The importance of aerodynamics is a bit of a myth since the gain is negligible. If it were significant, we would probably shave our arms too.

Prevention, massages and cooling the body are much more important for a professional than aesthetics, although the latter also matters. On the other hand, for a simple bicycle tourist, aesthetics and being part of a group are the main reasons to shave or wax their legs. 


These days men are taking their appearance far more serious. It doesn’t have to be a huge deal. A quick eyebrow wax and shape will compliment your new haircut. Most people won’t realise you’ve had it done but will probably compliment you on how fresh and awake you look.

Next time ask your barber for an eyebrow wax. It’s quick and will leave you looking fresh and awake! Plus it’s on offer at The Barber Club Turre. All waxing treatments are 20% off!

Are you embarrassed by the hair on your back?

According to, almost all women dislike hair on the back, but are too embarrassed to tell their mate. According to a Harris Interactive survey of 1,000, more than 90 percent of women between the ages of eighteen and forty-four find back hair to be unattractive.

If you’ve never had your back waxed and are unsure of the procedure we are more than happy to have an informal chat and talk you through the procedure.


Actually that’s a bit of a fib. If you go to a salon set up for women there is a chance they use a standard wax designed for women. It probably smells lovely but it won’t grab hold of those hard, coarse man hairs as much as a dark wax would. There’s more chance of it pulling on the skin and the follicle snapping leaving half of it behind.

Here at The Barber Club Turre we specialise in male waxing and import our made for men Black Wax. Hive Of Beauty Waxing Xtra Strong Depilatory Wax Male & Coarse Hair Removal A high performance Depilatory Strong Wax ideal for salon professional hair removal. Product Features Specially formulated for dense, coarse hair & male waxing. A unique black coloured warm wax, design to appeal to male clients.

Jason has been waxing men for over 11 years. As someone who has been getting his back waxed since he was a teenager he knows through a lot of personal experience how not to wax men. This is one of the main reasons why he got into the business. Why should men have to resort to a salon designed for females. It’s embarrassing and you feel like an imposter. Here at The Barber Club in Turre we have designed a Barber Shop and Spa with a very Masculine feel to it. A place designed for you. With products made for you.

Male Waxing. Under Arm, Arm Wax, Leg Wax, Chest Wax, Back Wax, Back Sack & Crack, Shoulder Wax.


This July we are offering 20% OFF all Facials!

We have a choice of Hydration, Prescriptive, Collagen and Microdermabrasion.

HYDRATION €20 (Normally 25€)

A hydrating facial treatment is designed to nourish your skin on a deeper level, removing dead skin cells, and stimulating the formation of newer, healthier cells. Once the exfoliation of the top layer of old, dead skin is complete, the healthy, hydrated, younger-looking skin underneath is revealed.

PRESCRIPTIVE 21.5€ (Normally 27€)

Your Customized Facial starts with a cleanse/steam treatment, skin analysis, customized exfoliation mask, and extractions (as needed). Your session will conclude with a customized treatment mask and finishing treatment.

Collagen 24€ (Normally 30€)

The treatment begins with a cleanse and tone before skin is prepped with a gentle exfoliation. A lymph draining massage using a face cream is then administered before the collagen mask is gently applied to the skin. While the collagen gets to work, your shoulders are given a relaxing massage and after 20 minutes the mask is peeled away. The treatment ends with collagen enriched cream being applied to the face and neck.

MICRODERMABRASION 28€ (Normally 35€)

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions. 

The procedure uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.

The treatment is finished off with a refreshing toner and a light moisturiser.

Amazing Reviews…

Just wanted to share a couple of reviews we’ve had this week. It’s honestly a pleasure to be of service and can’t thank you all enough for supporting a brand new business. Thank you all so much. It means the absolute world to us!


Visited The Barber Club in Turre twice now in the past week. First visit was for a haircut and beard trim with Pedro. Have to say its the best haircut cut I’ve had in a very long time. I’m fussy! I highly recommend you pay him a visit!

Yesterday, I treated myself to a Swedish Massage with Jason. He worked wonders as my body is put through its paces at the gym on a daily basis. Again highly recommended! My first visit sorted out some lower back pain, issues in my left leg following a hamstring injury and a dodgy shoulder! Again, highly recommend you pay him and the team at The Barber Club a visit soon!

well..…. I sent my husband to Jason for a facial and pedicure..… he hates having anyone touch his feet, or ’mess about’ with his face..… over 2 hours later he came back a changed man! didn’t know where the time went..…. relaxed and chilled, with great feet and a great skin. We couldn’t recommend Jason and his team enough, excellent service, great treatments, even better prices..…

Lovely flip flop ready pedicure for hubby by Jason followed by massage, salon is decorated fab 👌
