What is a Shave Valet?

You are probably wondering…. What is a Shave Valet?  Here is my definition:

shave
[sheyv]
verb
cut the hair off one’s face with a razor.

valet
[val-UT] [ˈval-AY]
noun
a man’s personal male attendant, responsible for his clothes and appearance.

In North America, our definition of a “valet” is a bit different than in other parts of the world.  I’m sure you are probably thinking of someone that parks your car, a tray to place your personal items or even a rack for your clothing.  I am referring to Valet in the old school traditional sense like Mr. Bates who you might know as the first valet to Lord Grantham in the drama Downton Abbey.

In setting up this brand/business I wanted to ensure the name was the brand promise.  I have always loved the idea of a traditional valet because this profession is entirely based on the merits of serving.  The word service aligns with my values and how one should conduct business… that being said Shave Valet was born.

My core service is to provide quality wet shaving gear to Saskatoon and area gentlemen.  I would like to be your Shave Valet.
