Inspired by the Mod subculture of the 1950s, Ace Face is an electric fabric shaver that reinvents how the typical fabric shaver is held and its appearance.

Ace Face is the term for the “perfect mod” person. This shaver is intended to make the average person an ace face by perfecting their clothes with a shaver designed for their era.
