Harry’s Shave Opens Its First Barbershop

The Corner Shop

Harry’s Shave, the leader in reasonably priced high-end men’s grooming products, announced today Oct. 28 the opening of the brand’s first offline space, The Corner Shop barbershop. Harry’s Shave, launched in March by Warby Parker co-founder Jeff Raider and his business partner Andy Katz-Mayfield, aimed to bring men a luxe grooming experience sans the luxe price tag and apparently succeeded.

The brand experienced rave reviews for their men’s grooming products and saw a rapid sellout of product in March. Six months later, Harry’s dropped its first Fall-Winter Lookbook and FW 2013 product line. Today’s announcement is a lovely indication of the brand’s rapid success. With that said, what can one expect when visiting The Corner Shop? Comfortable convenience.

Jeff and Andy seemed to have thought of everything when it comes to combining convenience, affordability, and top-notch services for guys. Customers can conveniently book appointments through a calendar system at the Harry’s website. During the visit, barbers will utilize iPads to create and update digital customer profiles that include notes and headshots to provide customers with individualized services each time they return. With shaves at just $30 and haircuts at $35, the company aims to keep its pricing in line with the Harry Shave philosophy of offering exceptional products at a fair price.

At just over 300 square feet, The Corner Shop is designed to be a neighborhood destination. The space itself takes references from traditional barbershops, updated with modern elements including refurbished Koken barber chairs from the 1920s, the brands signature H’ logo tiled on the floor and simple ashwood shelves displaying merchandise. The merchandise stocked upon those lovely ashwood shelves will be, of course, Harry’s shaving products, along with other items that will appeal to the discerning gentleman. The Corner Shop is located at 64 MacDougal Street in Soho and will open to the public, tomorrow, Oct. 29.

Harry’s Fall/Winter Lookbook and New FW 2013 Collection

Men’s grooming outfitters, Harry’s, brings consumers another first, today Sep. 16, with their Fall-Winter Lookbook just ahead of the Sep. 17 launch of Harry’s FW 2013 collection, which updates their current collection with fresh new colors for the fall and winter. The Makeup Examiner brings readers an exclusive peek at the Harry’s Lookbook and Harry’s first seasonal collection.

The very things that we all love about these seasons inspired the Fall/Winter 2013 collection. “Quintessential fall and winter moments - the muted wash of an old flannel, the dusty sleeves of Zeppelin records, the nights spent camping in the woods (with whiskey-enhanced survival skills), the warmth of extra blankets,” descriptive from Harry’s FW13 Lookbook completely sums up the feel of fall and winter. And to test out the brand’s new offerings, the guys traveled to the mountains and lakes of upstate New York and worked it in the very environment that inspired the line.

Launched this past March by Andy Katz-Mayfield and Jeff Raider (co-founder of Warby Parker), Harry’s offers amazing, high quality men’s grooming products at an affordable price. In conjunction with affordability, the brand brings convenience to consumers with an auto-refill program. Harry’s was such a hit that within 24 hours after the brand’s launch, many found themselves on a wait list, which is why The Makeup Examiner is bringing readers the “inside scoop” ahead of the Sep. 17 launch of the FW 2013 limited edition collection.

Currently Harry’s offers blades ($1.88), shave cream ($8), and two superior handles, The Truman ($10- zinc alloy core with polymer coating in 4 colors) and The Winston ($20-aluminum), along with shave sets ranging from $15 to $50. Adding to Harry’s offerings, in their first seasonal collection, are four handles made of the same components as The Truman - Headley Grange, Ash Fox, Woodsman, and Nautilus Captain ($15 each also available in sets for $20). Take a look through the slideshow to see what awaits you and ladies, there’s a little something in the slideshow for you too!

Beyond feeling good with a great shave, you can feel good about Harry’s “Give A Shave” program. Harry’s donates one blade (or an equivalent dollar value) for each purchase to a non-profit partner that supports the mission of helping people to look and feel their best. The FW 13 collection will be available Sep. 17 and all Harry’s products are available at the brand’s website.

Harry’s Shaving Product Review

The Makeup Examiner has reviewed a few high-end men’s shaving lines for her lovely readers. Despite having received great feedback from the guys that I enlisted to help review them, I’ve had doubts about the average guy opening his wallet to drop a few hundred dollars on upscale shaving products. Yes, the lines provide a luxury shaving experience. But, can a similar experience be had with a less expensive line like Harry’s?

Harry’s is the latest men’s shaving line to drop onto the market. Having launched less then a week ago, on March 14, The Makeup Examiner was astonished to see a lot of media focus on Warby Parker co-founder, Jeff Raider, and none on the product itself. Seriously? Where were the reviews? Does anyone who’s going to purchase shaving cream really give a crap about some dude who made geeky eyeglasses “super cool”? Probably not.

What may be of interest to a consumer, regarding Jeff Raider’s work, is that Warby Parker donates a pair of glasses for every pair purchased. And this model of giving has been carried over to Harry’s. Jeff Raider and Harry’s co-founder, Andy Katz-Mayfield, implemented the “Give A Shave” program into the company’s profile. That aside, the million-dollar question is … Do Harry’s affordable shaving products work?

The Makeup Examiner received The Truman Set ($15) from Harry’s. This set includes a Truman handle ($10), 3 blades ($6), and a tube of shave cream ($8, 3.4oz). With the set in one hand and my two housemates roped together in the other, I shoved them in the bathroom and told them to shave. Okay, I didn’t. Truth be told, I asked (begged) politely if the guys would again be my guinea pigs. Seriously though, my friends and family know by now that if I have a box under my arm they are going to be asked to try something! Whose fault is it if they can’t run fast? I digress.

Beginning with Harry’s Shave Cream, which has a really light minty scent and is a blend of natural ingredients like licorice, milk thistle, and cucumber plus marula and coconut oils, both guys reported that the shave cream lathered well and left their skin feeling hydrated. The Truman handle has a zinc alloy core and is available in white, olive, orange and navy! Both guys loved the feel of the handle, stating that it provided nice control.

As for Harry’s blades, one of their selling points is that the blades are engineered in Germany. To this The Makeup Examiner says, “Is there any where else on the planet to receive superior craftsmanship for blades?” Aside from the blades themselves, the design of the cartridge is amazingly flexible, which a both guys reported gave them a close, smooth shave. When asked if either would purchase Harry’s, both said “yes” to the handle and blades, but “uh, not really” to the $8.00 shave cream. Of course … their girlfriends’ both said that they would buy the guys Harry’s Shave Cream. Harry’s Shaving Products are available at the brand's website, please keep in mind that as of March 19, a few products have a wait-list.
