Shaving on the road

Dwain Price of the Star-Telegram writes about getting his head shaved on the road.
My barber was Adriana of Metro Barber Shop. I wear my hair bald -- as in no hair at all -- so I told Adriana to cut everything she saw. There's absolutely no way anyone can mess that up.

It sure felt like Adriana was doing a good job -- until she asked me if I took a razor.

Take a razor where? The two barbers back in Plano -- Anthony Hines and Karl Davis -- who take turns shaving my head have never asked me if I took a razor.

So I said yes.

Adriana then proceeded to put some white shaving cream-looking stuff on the back and sides of my head. I'm going to have to tell Anthony and Karl about this, because that sure felt good.
I've never had my hair shaved by a barber, but someday I'd like to give it a try. It always sounds like an interesting experience. Mr. Price didn't mention whether it was a straight razor or a cartridge razor; I'd like the straight razor experience, myself.
