OUR PARTNER & CAUSE
Barbershop Books is a 501(c)(3) community-based organization that inspires young Black boys (and other children of color) to identify as readers— and, most importantly, to read for fun.
Barbershop Books distributes age-appropriate, culturally relevant children's books to kids in need through their national network of barbershops and local community partners.
Additionally, Barbershop Books provides early literacy training to barbers, free virtual literacy programming for young boys, and access to our free online “Reading So Lit” eLibrary, which contains fun diverse e-books and engaging read aloud videos.
A STANDARD TO STAND BY
For years, Michael James watched Black men lose hope in the grooming department. They felt powerless fighting their dry scalps, unsightly razor bumps, and held on to the belief that harmful, ineffective chemicals were their only option. So, Michael set out to find a better way.
Inspired by the legacy of his grandfather –– the original Frederick Benjamin –– Michael developed a regimen of products to help every man sculpt his best self, no matter his style.
BORN IN THE BARBERSHOP
TRADITION WORTH MAINTAINING
We believe our tailored Regimens can help make barbershop-quality grooming a daily part of men’s lives. Because grooming is a practice best learned and maintained in the community, we strive to provide support every step of the way. That way, men can learn for themselves and teach others. Ultimately, we aspire to groom the men that groom the men of tomorrow.
