According to our tradition, we recommend starting the procedure with a brush and a shaving bowl in order to create the lather. This is the way it has been performed in Antica Barbieria Colla saloon since 1904.

Use a shaving brush and a bowl to whip either shaving soap or shaving cream into a nice lather. Place a small amount of shaving cream on the tip or centre of a wet shaving brush and apply in a quick circular motion onto face. Shave away, re-lathering areas with brush as needed and finish by rinsing face with cold water. 

If it is the first time you are using a shaving brush, we recommend leaving it in water a few hours to allow the bristles to hydrate and become more flexible. 

After each shave, rinse the brush thoroughly with warm water and flick brush hairs to remove stubborn water. It is advisable to wash your brushes periodically using the same cosmetic products designed for your hair.
