Gillette, the premier men’s shaving brand in the country, partnered with Felipe & Sons barbers and Esquire magazine for a night celebrating the art and innovation of shaving. The collaboration could only be summed up as the convergence of the two hosting companies’ slogans, namely “The best a man can get” and “Man at his best.” Held at Makati’s Felipe & Sons barberdashery, it was indeed a gentleman’s night out. I was so stoked because we don’t often have events like these in Manila so I made sure to enjoy a couple of hours at the pop-up barbershop. I invited some of my buddies and we were treated to various grooming services, old-fashioned barber’s massages, amazing food and good ol’ glass of scotch.
I got a haircut courtesy of Noel (I’ve been told that he is one of the best barbers there is). I asked for Felipe & Son’s signature cut and I loved the final result. Then, it was time for me to experience Gillette’s FlexBall Technology. With this, you can achieve a ‘no missed hair’ shave—kinda like getting a professional shave from a barber, but at home, any day. With the FlexBall, men no longer have to contort their faces (or as we’d like to call, the “shave face”) in order to get that thorough shave. Now, it’s the razor that swerves and contorts to the contours of your face in order to reach virtually every hair–resulting to smoother skin and an overall neater look.
As luck would have it, the Gillette X Esquire Barber Shop will be open to the public for the week of September 6 to September 12. Men are welcome to experience this top-of-the-line service and appreciate the pleasure and ease FlexBall has to offer. It is an invitation not to miss.
