During my straight razor shave at Truefitt & Hill in Vegas this weekend, the barber said that when I use a brush, I should swril it in circles to apply the lather to my face. When I was at Cambridge Chemists in NY the other day, I was told never to do that as the hair would then all be going in different directions. They said that I should paint it on in up and down strokes and side to side strokes, but not circles. I am not sure now how to proceed. Any help guys?
