I lather the right side of my face, then, switch hands, and, lather the left side, of my face, with my left-hand. I shave right side, then, left side, then, right side, of neck, and, then, left side, of neck. Next, onto the moustache, and, chin area. I switch hands, each time, I switch sides.

I'm right handed.

When starting the face-lathering, I start with the brush on the left moving it to the right side.
First pass, the razor starts on the far left side moving down and to the right.
Second pass, the razor starts on the far right, moving down and to the left.
Third pass, the razor starts on the bottom, moving upward.
It's been almost a year since I gave up the 3 pass shave, and my routine has changed, hopefully for the better. Anyway I like it.

The brush/lather process begins on the right side of my face.
First and only shaving pass begins under the right ear, going against the grain until the whole face has been covered. Adding a splash of water, I smooth and touch up as needed, then I'm finished. Getting my best shaves ever on a daily basis.

That's a lot of switching hands! Are you ambidextrous?

I'm right-handed, though I do a small part of the shave, that is too awkward with the right hand, with my left.

I guess I'm ambidextrous because I can shave with one hand while drinking with the other.
