    Default Straight Shaving My Dad At Home

    I want to give my dad a straight razor shave at home. I want to be able to recline his head so I can shave his neck better, but I don't want him to have to hold his head back by himself. I want it to be enjoyable. What can I rest the back of his head on while sitting on a regular dining room chair?

    A chaise lounge, perhaps? A reclining beach chair?

    Try a couple of rolled up or folded towels. You could place 2 similar chairs back to back for added support.

    Seraphim once showed a pic of the chair he used to shave a parent. I don't recall it bring a barber's chair.
