Very interesting, thanks for sharing.
Do you have any idea what was going on with the black string on the cheeks starting at 1:25 ?

Reminds me of how traditional barbering techniques are. Turkish Bath's used to be a very fashionable thing. It also reminds me of how similar Turkish & Italian traditions are. Without the fire and string you'd have thought that was an Italian shave.

all this guy needs is a cup of turkish coffee and a nice bellydancer to charm him
That looked like it was an amazing shave.

Wow that looks like quite the experience and an excellent shave. Between this and Turkish baths, the Turks seem to know how to do pampering right.
Wow, that was really interesting to see.

Certainly impressive. I was beginning to worry a little when they started tugging on the customer's arms. He was looking a bit like a plucked chicken!
It all came together at the end though. Great vid.
The method with the string is called threading. A lot of women here in the states are getting their eyebrows threaded instead of getting them waxed..
But does anyone know the shave brush he was using? It did not look like boar or badger, it almost looked like a piece of felt in the shape of a flower
