For so long I had a beard. So shaving was not a part of my self-care routine. It didn’t hurt that my wife liked the beard that I had grown for almost 10 years.
That changed sometime last year after losing about 300 lbs. I started to develop some facial eczema, that caused my face to become dry and itchy.
When I would visit my barber every 6 weeks to trim my beard, he would give me a hot towel treatment. This was 5 minutes of heaven, and I found myself wanting more.
If you know me, you know I love spa treatments like this. So this was right up my alley.
I determined I wanted the best to learn more about the signature service Art of Shaving offered. I set out to have a professional give me one of those legendary straight razor shaves.
So when I saw the Art of Shaving at Disney Springs, and I looked into the window I knew what I had to do. I walked in and booked an appointment during my next trip to relax and enjoy all things Disney.
Let me tell you, the barbershop is nothing but a quiet, throwback to high-end barbershops. The whole barber spa experience was relaxing, and I was in Disney World of all places.

I did the Premium Shave during my visit, and it cost $100 plus tip. So it’s not something I would do all the time, this was a time for me to relax after the stresses of a work trip.
The Premium Shave included a lemon essential oil face massage with a hot towel. Followed by a second hot towel before the royal shave began.
The after-shave mask tightened my skin up, clearing out the pores even more relaxing.
