The Classic Benefits of a Hot Towel Shave

A hot towel shave may seem like a foreign and exotic experience to some or a weekly routine for others. It’s something you see going on at the barbershop but don’t really know why, let alone how it works. That’s what we’re here for; to help get you educated in the pursuit of manliness.

There are plenty of classic benefits to the hot towel shave that have sadly dropped off in the modern world, but it’s our duty to revitalise the way men’s beards are shaped, groomed and shaved. So let’s get started.

Why bother with a hot towel shave? Well firstly, it feels awesome. The regulars among you will know this, the others will envy this.

Why does it feel so awesome? Here are few reasons.


  • It softens and opens up your pours
  • Gets them ready for a nice, close fitting shave
  • The second set of hot towels help get rid of any impurities cramped away in your skin
  • They also help soak up the steam and heat, moisturising your skin and cleaning it
  • Blocks out any unwanted razor burn or redness
  • Massaging stimulates the nerves and promotes circulation to help wake you up


You know that feeling you get 15 minutes into a steaming hot shower? The one where you feel clean as a whistle and fresh through and through? Imagine that alongside a freshly shaved face, superbly applied and executed. There’s nothing better than kicking your legs back and getting the deepest, cleanest shave of your live.

If you haven’t experienced a hot towel shave in the past, book yourself a barber appointment or visit any of our The Emporium Barber stores located across Brisbane and re-evaluate what it means to feel clean and look fresh.
