Product Bulletin: HeadSlick

No company likes to post about an issue but we’ve been running HeadBlade transparently since 1999 and think the best way to keep our customer base is to tell you when we find an issue.

If you’ve been to the site you’ll notice that we are listing HeadSlick as “Out of Stock.” This is because our most recent batch was affected by improper cooling after production and, as a result, the usual creamy texture has given way to a more translucent viscosity with some visual white specs. We’ve taken the precautionary steps and have destroyed all remaining bottles from our 50,000 unit run. Unfortunately we did not find out about the issue until after some product had been released on the market. We are in production now on a new batch and hopefully it will be finished next week.

If you purchased a bottle from batch 19-0502 (number stamped on bottom of bottle) feel free to email us a photo of the lot number and, after we confirm your order, we’ll send you a replacement when we have stock.. The product is still good (you just have to shake the bottle up to get the proper consistency back), but we stand behind all of our products and always strive to get you the best head shaving products on the market.

We are committed to delivering the highest quality products to our customers.

HeadBlade Reintroduces the HB2!

Since starting the company in 1999, we’ve had four major HeadBlade designs; the Classic (1999), the Sport (2005), the ATX (2012), and the MOTO (2017).

The HeadBlade Classic and Sport work using the ‘pushing’ method where the blade is positioned on the front of the unit.  While these units are more difficult to ‘master’ they give an amazing shave using generic type Atra and Ultrex blades.  In 2002 we introduced the HB2 blades which came with additional adapters that kept the performance level to OEM standards.  In 2006 we discontinued the HB2’s and came out with the HB3’s, which added an additional blade to the cartridge at a higher price.  Now we are reintroducing the HB2 and discontinuing the HB3’s.

As we developed newer technologies, especially with suspension geometry, we created the ATX and MOTO editions which worked with the “pulling” method favored by conventional handles.  With this new set-up we were able to create an ultimate HeadBlade that gives a great shave right out of the box with no learning curve.  We designed these new models to work exclusively with our HB4 and HB6 blades.

In the next few months we’ll be reintroducing the value priced HB2 blade packs at $10 for 10 blades and two adapters!  Because there will be a gap between production runs we will be selling the HB2 in temporary packaging to meet demand.  These will be offered on the site as early as next week (April 4th). When full production starts, the HB2 will be the first HeadBlade item that does away with the hard plastic container; it will come in a resealable poly-bag like we have for the women’s Aveline line.

We’re excited to relaunch the HB2 as it is a great blade at an even better value than the outgoing HB3.  For Shave Plan users we will be shipping HB3’s until stock runs out next month.  We will contact you shortly about switching over to the HB2’s.

For Sport and Classic users we’d love for you to ‘make the jump’ and try the new MOTO.  Here is a coupon that allows you to purchase a MOTO for $1 (HELLOMOTO) at HeadBlade.com.  Limit one per customer.

We appreciate your continued support as we continue to create new and exciting products.  Below is a mock-up of the HB2 production package which will be available by May.  Until then we’ll be using temp packaging.

Update! Promo Errors Fixed

UPDATE;   Our web company resolved all the issues with our holiday promos.  We appreciate your understanding.  Now please resume your regular scheduled day.  Thanks!  Todd and Team HeadBlade

We all know “Murphy’s Law” and, unfortunately we’ve been struck by it with our holiday promotions.  Our web ‘tech’ company is working on it but essentially this is the issue;  some promo items are showing up in the carts with a price and others are showing up when they should not.  Rest assured we are MANUALLY crediting invoices that are charging for the promo items and we are double-checking all promo items to make sure you get what you ‘should receive.’

The promos are as following:

  • Purchase between $20 and $30 and receive our new Aveline womens’ razor.
  • Purchase between $30 and $50 and receive a free Groomster.
  • Purchase about $50 and get BOTH items free plus FREE SHIPPING.

Granted, some orders may slip out and be incorrect.  When you get your order if you have any issues, please give us a call; we’ll make it right. We’re a small four person company dedicated to headshaving and the support of our customers over the past 19 years means the world to us.

Again, we apologize for the issue…..but want to keep the promo available during the holiday.   Thanks for your understanding.

HeadBlade Holiday Sales!

This year we’ve decided to make our holiday offerings simple and meaningful; just how life should be.doorbuster_bag_web

$1 off messenger bags!  We pick the color.  One per customer.  Since we can’t control how many you do put in the basket, we will void the ENTIRE order of anyone that adds more than one.  The idea is to allow as many HeadBladers to get this great offering; not to have one person buy as many as they can and then resell on Ebay or Amazon.  We appreciate your patronage and hope you understand.

From HairClub to No Club; HeadBlade’s New Spokesperson!

HeadBlade Announces Actor Tom Wainman as New Brand Spokesperson

Gardena, CA – HeadBlade, the leader in HeadCare and developers of the ultimate head shaving razor, the HeadBlade MOTO, today announced actor Tom Wainman as the brand’s newest spokesperson.  Tom joins the HeadBlade team as part of a robust marketing campaign to help build awareness of head shaving as an alternative to hair restoration and replacement treatments.

Tom’s partnership with the brand will focus on the award winning HeadCare line featuring the HeadBlade MOTO, a uniquely designed head shaving razor that allows the blade to pivot up and down to follow the contours of the scalp while the body can lean side-to-side creating an ideal and ergonomic solution for head shaving.  Tom will play an integral role in spreading awareness of the ease of use affordability and style that comes with having a freshly shaved head.

“After many years advocating non-surgical and other forms of hair restoration, I am delighted to join HeadBlade and embrace shaving my head.  Not only is shaving my head with HeadBlade a time saver, shaved heads are very socially acceptable today….. and actually look cool! I started shaving my head after I got fed up with the look and maintenance of nonsurgical alternatives.  HeadBlade is the perfect fit for me and my proactive lifestyle,” said Tom.

As a well-known actor and spokesman, Tom has appeared in many national commercial and industrial films for companies such as Disney, Home Depot, Dick’s Sporting, John Deere and many more.  Tom also served as the spokesperson for The Hair Club For Men, now know as Hair Club.  In this capacity, popularized in television commercials and infomercials, Tom advocated surgical and nonsurgical solutions to male pattern baldness.  It is fitting that his current take-charge regard to hair loss is to be bold and shave it off.

“When we learned that Tom was shaving his head and was already a HeadBlader, it was a no-brainer to get him on board.  What an interesting picture he has painted of the evolution and popularization of head shaving,” said Todd Greene, President and inventor of HeadBlade, Inc.  “Tom embodies our consumers who may have struggled with losing their hair and the alternatives of how to deal with it.  He ultimately took his stand to look his best.”

The campaign will show consumers how HeadBlade is advancing in new directions, focusing on design and innovation of its razors and skin care line.  The campaign will kick off with a series of videos featuring Tom.

About HeadBlade

Founded by Todd Greene in 1999, HeadBlade, Inc., is dedicated to making head-shaving easy, fast, and affordable. The original HeadBlade drew the attention of the press and began winning numerous awards and honors for its unique and ergonomic design, including the IDSA Silver Award, and Time Magazine named it one of the “Ten Best Designs of 2000.” In 2005 the HeadBlade Razor was put into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in NYC (MoMA) and is a permanent display item in the Museum of Ideas and Inventions in Barcelona, Spain.

Aveline Leg Shaver Now Available on Indiegogo

Todd here. Good news: the Aveline® razor is now LIVE on Indiegogo!

But instead of me telling you about it, I thought it would be best to introduce Lauren Gauthier who has been working hard to bring the Aveline to life on Indiegogo. Lauren is a travel blogger, beauty expert, brand advocate, producer, long-time shaving aficionado—and our VP of Marketing behind Aveline. She joined the HeadBlade® team in late 2017. She understands women much better than I do and has been instrumental in both the testing and marketing phase for this new venture.

Today, on launch day, Lauren will taking over the blog to tell you guys all about the Aveline razor. Here she is–Lauren, take it away. 

Lauren_Todd

Thanks for the intro Todd.

I know all you HeadBladers out there are probably wondering what the heck this new Aveline razor is and what it can offer the women in your life. 

The Aveline razor will be to women’s leg shaving like the HeadBlade was to men’s head shaving. 

It’s the world’s first ever 5-way pivoting, 6 blade system for women. No other razor on the market has a pivoting head that smoothly pivots in 5 directions to hit the hardest-to-reach places on a woman’s body. 

As a longtime health blogger, I know what women look for, want and appreciate having in their beauty routine. Things like quality, consistency, simplicity, style, uniqueness. I’ve used lots of razors in my lifetime so far and sampled many over the years, including your basic shavers, disposables, even men’s razors. But I’ve never been as impressed with one as I have with the Aveline.  I mean, just watch this video about it. Need I say more?

Just think, if the woman in your life had an Aveline:

  • She wouldn’t complain about shaving. 
  • She would actually LIKE shaving.
  • She wouldn’t have to borrow yours.
  • She would have smooth legs for days with no missed hairs.
  • Best of all, you wouldn’t ever have to feel stubbly legs!

So pre-order an Aveline razor now so she’ll be the first to own it when it hits the mass market in June 2018. 

P.s. BTW, guys––Valentine’s day is coming up… so a pre-order of the Aveline razor kit might just be the best unique VDAY gift you’ll ever give. Hint, hint. (get early bird discounts when you sign up!).

New Improved MOTO!

At HeadBlade we’re committed to making the best head shaving products in the world.  You may be surprised we’re such a small company (five people) and that we’ve invested millions of dollars to design, develop, and manufacture our products. Simply stated; HeadBlade is our passion.

Once we put a product into production we do not stop improving its design.  Like any large company we make running changes and improvements based on testing, consumer feedback, and our commitment to excellence.

The new, award-winning MOTO, which was introduced at the end of 2016 has been revamped and we’re proud to tell you of some of the improvements, and how to spot them.  All HeadBlades that have been shipped via our site since June, consist of these modifications.

If you bought one via Amazon or one of the many retail outlets we supply, you may have one from an early production run. Whether you wish to upgrade is up to you; we just want you to be aware of improvements since they may address comments/concerns you had about the original run of MOTO’s.  Like any car manufacturer, we continually improve our current products while developing the next generation.

Below are factory renderings that show the improvements, which include:

1) Strong finger-ring material and more of a ‘closed-loop’ design which ensures a snug fit on any size finger.

Finger_Ring_oldAfter

2) Extruded gills on the outside of the vents. This is to help facilitate holding the razor in a more conventional manner while face or body shaving.

3) Stronger center shaft which will prevent ‘axle-break.’  We have had some customers break their units while changing a blade or adaptor.  This weakening of the shaft may not be immediately noticed and may disengage from the body while shaving. The actual cause is stress from blade changing.  We made a quick video a few months ago to show proper blade change for the MOTO.

As always, we appreciate your support as we strive to make the best headshaving products available in the world.  Which MOTO do you have?  The easiest way is to look for the extruded gills on the side of the unit.  If you see/feel them, you have the newest model.  All LE’s have the modifications.

Thanks again for being part of the HeadBlade Team.  If you have questions or comments please feel free to contact Todd Greene, Owner and Founder of HeadBlade. “Todd@HeadBlade.com”
