Yes, earlier this month my wife and I were in Las Vegas again! This time we stayed at the Wynn and I was lucky enough to get another “spa” shave. With their permission I was able to videotape it and post the highlights. Admittedly it is a long video–longer than any other single video I’ve done–but now most of the major video streaming sites (or at least Youtube and Blip) support long-form videos, and I wanted to give you an idea of what goes on during one of these luxury “spa” shaves. It really is meant to be a pampering experience! And the Wynn, a five diamond, five star resort, knows all about luxury, pampering, and customer service (here is a link to their “Salon” services webpage). Michael Bertetto, my contact at Wynn who helped me get the necessary permissions to shoot the video, even gave me a DVD of video segments (“B-Roll”) that I could use in my video if I wanted (and indeed, I did use some footage at the beginning and at the end of my video).
I asked the barber (“DT”) to give a running narrative of what he was doing and I also asked a few questions about shaving problems and technique.
By the way, one of the shops in the hotel carries Truefitt & Hill and Penhaligon’s products.
