Washington Nationals’ right fielder Bryce Harper, aka the guy with the best hair in baseball, has made an investment in niche men’s grooming brand Blind Barber.
WHO: Blind Barber was founded in 201o by Jeff Laub, Josh Boyd, Adam Kirschenbaum, and Matt Breen when they opened the first Blind Barber shop in New York City’s East Village. The brand has expanded to six locations: three shops in New York, one in Chicago and two in Los Angeles. The shops offer cuts and shaves in the front barbershop and lounges in the back. The business launched a product range in 2013.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS: “I’ve entertained grooming brand offers in the past,” Bryce tells The Washington Post, “but when I met the Blind Barber team we bonded over our love of barbershop culture and I was impressed by their creativity beyond cuts and product. It’s great to be a partner in the creative process, and much more meaningful than just slapping my name on a jar of pomade.”
“Obviously we knew about Bryce as a baseball player and for his great hair, but when we got to know him, we quickly realized that he had the same values we try to emulate through our products and barbershops,” said Jeff Laub, Blind Barber co-owner and head of marketing and creative for the company. “As an indie brand, we’re just at the start of our journey, and we feel honored that Bryce has decided to come on board and continue to push the envelope with us.”
