So I decided, why not have The Royal Haircut with Shampoo and Finish followed by the Traditional Hot Towel Wet Shave.
What sets them apart is the Hygeine aspect where each of the utensils used are prepped and packed individually so you could have the most personal touch grooming at ease
Once the haircut is done, I am treated to the Traditional Hot Towel Wet Shave while the professionally trained specialist does the shampoo and wash. The Traditional Hot Towel is a must try as it's truly relaxing and you would feel the glow in the skin after the shave.
Even my mum says my face glowed and looks more refreshed after the session.
