These look good at 6 for $12.
I like this look but they seem a little thin for hot towel purposes. http://www.appletonbarbersupply.com/store/shopexd.asp?id=469
check this video at about the one minute mark. Here is what pro barber is using. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY46z9I90p0
There used to be a great barbering manual on-line. I do not seem to be able to find it right now. it always seemed to have a very precise idea of exactly what one should have and do in any barbering activity. I bet it had an exact towel size. I have a slight recollection that it said to overlap the ends on the towel on the lower part of the face/chin, in order to preserver heat on that part of the face. Makes sense to me.
I think you want big enough to fold in half length-wise and long enough to wrap around the face maybe not as far as in the video but at least a bit, so that it is not falling off easily. I would love some ideas re keeping the towel warming longer on the face. Two towels I guess even if the one on top was dry.
Yeah the 1st towel looks too thin, dont think it would hold heat for very long.
Agreed about folding the towel, thats what I usually do.
Yeah I guess 2 towels would help the heat stay in longer.
Read a couple things on a beauty website, they said slowcookers work well as long as the towels are damp enough and not left in too long otherwise they burn (as attached link)
I can't see anything they do differently to a microwave although they look slightly smaller and maybe could be moved easily in the direction of the bathroom!
