For Gentlemen Only: A Luxury Grooming Tradition Returns

A timeless and elegant tradition for gentlemen is returning. Grooming with master barbers in the style of earlier American and English traditions are returning with a modernized and upscale version of “barbershop spas.”

Next time you're in Las Vegas, make time to visit The Art of Shaving (at Mandalay Place) or Truefitt and Hill (at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace) and try something that will make you look and feel great before heading out for a night on the town and some evening adventures.

What's the difference between a traditional straight-edge shave and an off-the-shelf multi-cartridge shave? The straight-edge is used to cut with and against the grain which results in a much closer shave, and leaves your face absolutely smooth all over. In addition to the usual shave and a hair cut, men have the option of being pampered and rejuvenated with techniques found in upscale spas such as hot and cold aromatherapy towels, facial masks, luxuriant shaving creams, balms, and oils-- along with various hair care and skincare products, fragrances, shoe shines, and manicures.

You're in good company, following the likes of royalty, industry execs, and celebs like Frank Sinatra who have opted for traditional shaves.
