One more Week untill Big Shave West 2! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUDqi7Nepmg
Hope to see you damn fine folks there!!!!

This was just going to be a simple event post…but I feel something bubbling up. Where to begin?
For those who attended this groundbreaking shave fest last year, YOU know…and will return this year. For those who couldn’t make it, now’s your chance! If for some reason you can’t pull it off, a documentary is being made too…we welcome armchair attendance & extend a virtual Hi-5!
Speaking of a documentary, we are looking for help telling the story. Unlike The Big Shave West Doc of last year, we want to show & tell a Longer, human story side of the event…and we need your help!
Shave Con, ShaveCon, Big Shave West Movie
We ask that all attending document the trip, event and return home. We would love to see parts of your drive or flight out; dashboard interviews, grabbing your luggage at the airport, thoughts about what to come, at the pump and raw anticipation in motion!
On the scene, we’d love for you to catch interviews with vendors, attendees; your experience! Lastly, your after thoughts; be them on route home, explaining it to your significant other once home…maybe even their take on the event or lead up to!
Capture all this with your cell phone, camera, GoPro or whatever else. Quality of capture goes a long way, but all will be reviewed and considered!
Another fun thing for some is using live, streaming forms/ Live Broadcasting of social media like Periscope, Blab, Twitter, Snap Chat, Youtube or VoiceByte to capture and post the event as it happens! (Remember #BigShaveWest) Check in the App Stores of your choice and take a minute to familiarize yourself with these…loads of fun!
Now For The Event Itself
Free Straight Razor Shaves! – Live Demos – Vintage Razor Tune Ups
Ever have a classic barbershop shave? Now’s your chance, Omar Romero, Master Barber at Vinnie’s Barbershop California will be on the scene leaving you Baby Butt Smooth!
Ever wonder how a brush is made? See Brush Craftsman Nathan Clark of Envy Shave, turn some handles live! Not only is Nathan great with a Lathe, he’s also great with Lather! That’s right, Nathan will also be giving some killer lather tutorials for trouble soaps!
Lastly, Razor Emporium will be on the scene demonstrating their sharpening services while offering FREE razor tune-ups! Bring one of your favorites to the event and they will bring it back to life!
