Our lovely Shannon is a fan of Operation Repo on truTV. Are you?  

HeadBlade’s favorite repo-man has always been Big Matt Burch… you know, the big, tatooed, overall-wearing guy with a shaved head. Well, Matt and his crew came by San Bernadino recently while we were hanging out with our friends at Ram Truck Motorsports.  It turned into quite an interesting day…

Tune into truTV Wednesday July 13 at 9pm to see what went down — you don’t want to miss this episode!

User Video: How I Use the HeadBlade

Everyone has their own routine.  Seeing how guys use HeadBlade in their own way is always cool.  Our customers sometimes even teach us new techniques we hadn’t tried! This video features Craig Reed of Seattle, WA (@craig_reed). Thanks to all the HeadBladers that upload videos, post reviews and share their stories — you never know who could benefit from seeing how you shave your head.

If you have a video to share, leave it in the comments.  We’ll be featuring user videos every week!

No Red Heads This Summer!

No offense to Julianne Moore or Isla Fisher… we’re talking about the sunburned kind of red. Ask anyone with a shaved head about their worst fears. A sunburned dome will likely be high on the list.  Burning and peeling is painful anywhere, but the cranium seems to hurt more than other spots.  And the long term affects of sun damage are no fun. So heed mom’s advice, and take the proper precautions.

To avoid the a red head this summer, make sure to properly cover up or use a sunblock with SPF if you’ll be exposed to the sun for prolonged periods.  If you need supplies, the Sun Protection Kit that has you covered.  Comes with your choice of HeadBlade hat, an 8 oz bottle of HeadLube SPF 30 lotion, and a FREE HeadShade SPF 15 oil-free spray.

Do You Know Your Neighbors?

Being headquartered in Culver City (West Los Angeles) is pretty cool.  Our office is surrounded by art galleries, advertising agencies, movie studios and more.  Entourage films Ari’s office around the corner, Daniel Tosh (Tosh.0) shoots in the area, and Sony Studios is right down the road.  Here’s a quick photo tour of some of HeadBlade’s neighbors…

I’ve worked at HeadBlade for over a year, and had no idea about some of the surrounding businesses (I obviously need to get out more).  Across the street from Hell’s Kitchen is the flagship Ed Hardy Outlet store.  The customized golf cart lured me over… and the girls working the store got me inside to browse some rhinestone-studded trucker hats.

Within a few minutes of talking with the Ed Hardy ladies, we found out they have a thing for shaved heads.  Coincidence? I think not. A formal invite is in the mail for them to come tour HeadBlade HQ. We’ll try to get some video when they stop by. Until then…
