40 Food for Thought: Din­ing Ad­ven­ture

Wynn Magazine - - CONTENTS - By Jen­nifer Leuzzi Pho­tog­ra­phy by Bryan Hainer

At Mizumi, four dis­tinctly difer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences await dis­crim­i­nat­ing din­ers.

Wynn lead bar­ber Jes­sica alverez shares the se­cret of the per­fect shave.

he per­fect shave: It’s some­thing all men ought to ex­pe­ri­ence at least once. It’s also some­thing we should know how to do—or at least ap­prox­i­mate—but very few of us re­ceive any sort of real train­ing. Here Jes­sica alverez, lead bar­ber at the claude Baruk sa­lon at Wynn, talks about the great bar­ber­shop shaves avail­able here (you can walk in or make an ap­point­ment), and how to bring some of that magic back home.

TWhat can a first-timer re­ceiv­ing a shave at Wynn ex­pect? Are there dif­fer­ent shave pack­ages?

Whether you are a first-timer or a reg­u­lar, we strive to pro­vide a con­sis­tent five-star ex­pe­ri­ence to ev­ery­one. a guest can ex­pect a pam­per­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with hot tow­els, warm lather, and cit­rus-smelling pre-shave oil used for prep­ping the skin for the smoothest shave from a straight ra­zor. In the hands of a pro­fes­sional com­bined with the cor­rect prod­ucts for the skin, there’s no closer shave than with a straight ra­zor. We have three shave op­tions, and all choices in­clude the use of hot tow­els, lather, and pre-shave oil. The sin­gle shave is for men with sen­si­tive skin, shav­ing only with the grain. Our most pop­u­lar is the clas­sic shave. This is per­formed with and against the grain, re­sult­ing in a very close, smooth shave. The Deluxe shave is best de­scribed as our clas­sic shave com­bined with a pu­ri­fy­ing clay face mask and a paraf­fin wax hand treat­ment. When it comes to ul­ti­mate pam­per­ing for men, the Deluxe shave is the best op­tion.

The hot towel—func­tional or just a pleas­ant way to re­lax?

Both. It’s func­tional, since it opens up the pores and loosens the hair fol­li­cles, al­low­ing for a closer shave and lim­it­ing ir­ri­ta­tion. It’s also a pleas­ant way to re­lax and it feels great. It can be closely repli­cated at home by wet­ting a wash­cloth and putting it in the mi­crowave for a cou­ple min­utes. This method isn’t the same as us­ing a steam cabi towel warmer, but it will get you close. n

The most lux­u­ri­ous shave in Las Ve­gas can be found at the Claude Baruk Sa­lon at Wynn.
