The story of the shave

The first electric dry shaver was developed in the 1930s. Mechanical razors came on the market at the beginning of the 20th century. These were operated by a wind-up motor. The dry shave was also known as a safety shave. Prior to the development of such electrical devices, the only way to remove facial hair was with a razor.

In the 19th century, shaving was done by a hairdresser or barber, as incorrect handling could quickly lead to injuries. The so-called safety razor was only invented at the beginning of the 20th century. This device made wet shaving at home possible.

The right shave with the razor

A brush with particularly soft hair, such as a badger hair brush, is best for this. Alternatively, canned conventional shaving foam can be used.
