9 out of 10 men’s grooming advertisements make use of physical attributes to promote the masculine qualities of the ideal man. On the contrary, The Art of Shaving promotes a modern gentlemen’s charisma that is cultivated via the processes of doing things attentively, the main example of which is wet shaving. ‘Start Your Ritual’ hints to the audience to change their attitude towards every day routines, and view them as rituals, including their shaving habits.
