 A protocol of forty minutes. A moment of absolute relaxation and well-being during which the client, an immaculate towel around his neck and cottons soaked in rose water over his eyes, is pampered like no other. After a deep cleansing of the skin and the application of a menthol shaving cream to the shaving brush, the different passages of the cabbage cutter are carried out at an angle of approximately 30° between the blade and the skin. The first passage in the direction of the hair, the second passing through the hair and the third with the hairpin. A number of passages punctuated, among other delights, by a steam bath to dilate the pores, the installation of a mask repairing volcanic clay, a scrub with extraction of the main black spots, but also a Massage of the face, a chisel for the hairs of the ears and nostrils, an ultimate cleaning with a warm towel and, final touch, the application of a soothing after-shave.

Just that!
