The Bluebeards Revenge is pleased to announce that we have added some more ambassadors to our roster, and this time, they come in the form of the Scottish brains behind Dundee barbershop and lifestyle store, Hard Grind. It’s great to have the guys flying the flag for us in bonnie Scotland, and recently they took some time out of their busy schedules to sit down with us for a quick Q&A on what lies in store for the year ahead.
1. Tell us about Hard Grind.
Hard Grind is a lifestyle store in Dundee, Scotland, made up of a barbershop, coffee shop and clothing store all under one roof. We focus on bringing the traditional barbershop into the modern world, complementing our cuts and shaves with the finest coffees and some of the biggest streetwear brands around. We believe the barbershop is about more than just a haircut, and are dedicated to creating the ultimate experience where everyone is welcome to sit back, grab a beer or a coffee, maybe play some foosball, browse our art gallery or just enjoy the tunes on our Jukebox.
2. What are your plans for the year ahead?
This year is all about growth for us. We are opening a brand new store in Aberdeen this Summer. We have a fantastic grooming range we are expanding on featuring our super popular “Flavours Collection” of beard oils with COLA the next to be released this Spring. We also have our own clothing brand “Hard Grind Clothing” launching very soon. High quality, fully custom-made garments in a range of styles. Our plan is to take our Hard Grind family on the road, and continue to work with other barbers and companies at trade shows and conventions. It’s always refreshing to meet with like-minded, passionate, creative people and come together through our love of barbering.
3. What do you think are the future trends in barbering?
We think male grooming as a whole is just going from strength to strength. It’s incredible to see the growth and love for barbering rocketing. Bringing people together from all walks of life, from worlds apart to share in a common love of the industry. To be a part of that and work with, and next to, such inspiring people is a blessing.
4. What’s the best thing about working for The Bluebeards Revenge?
I think that firstly, you just have to look at their products. They speak volumes about the brand, and are incredible to use. From their cut-throats and shaving products, right through to the new pomade, the range is always growing, and pushing the boundaries. They are a fantastic company to work with and you can literally feel their passion for the industry. We are insanely honoured to be ambassadors for The Bluebeards Revenge – and a part of the Bluebeards family.
