From the bus stop, head straight towards the white stairs with the blue and white cover.
Run to the right of the stairs and take an instant right.
Take your first left and then another left by the purpleish light.
Sneak up the stairs that are on your right and listen to the conversation to reveal the story.
Go back down the steps, take a right, and walk down the stairs into the gutter. Then go through the concrete opening on your right.
You’ll encounter 2 guards, kill them and take one of their disguises.
Continue through the tunnel and go past the next set of guards.
On your right, just past the guards, there should be a door. Go through it and to your left there should be a picture of the Maelstrom that you can pick up.
Run back out the way that you came and go back up the stairs to your left, exiting the sewer. (Note: You will be given the option to identify the Maelstrom or investigate the barber shop. For this guide, we are going to investigate the barber shop.)
Run straight and take a left into the street when you can.
The barber shop is in front of you. It is the one with a face painted on the door.
Go around to the back side of the shop and through the door on the blue wall.
Go through the beads on your right and up the steps.
Kill the barber and his wife and disguise yourself as the barber. Grab his blade off of the floor and his key from the table.
Go back downstairs and into the shop. Open it up for business.
Step outside and act as the barber. This will complete the A Close Shave story.
Wait for the Maelstrom to arrive and be identified, then offer him a shave.
When he sits down, begin shaving him and then kill him. Then, drag his body out of the chair to your left and stash his body inside the cabinet in the other room
