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.

S4 MOTO

S4-MOTOsAnyone familiar with HeadBlade knows that every standard HeadBlade model is the basis for a VERY special S4 Limited Edition. This week we are introducing two!  They OFFICIALLY go on sale Monday, December 19th but will be pre-released via our newsletter!  So sign up for the newsletter, which is located on the bottom of our homepage.

In November we brought you the all-new HeadBlade MOTO, featuring a free flowing ‘track ball’ and dual active suspension.  It has lived up to the HeadBlade tradition of creating new and progressive designs that make headshaving even easier!   The reviews have been amazing!

We are happy to introduce TWO specific Limited Edition S4 MOTO’s at this time; the S4 MOTO and the S4 MOTO Industrial.  They are mechanically identical yet very different beasts.

The S4 MOTO, limited to a run of 3,000 units, fits with our traditional S4 variant of a standard HeadBlade; it is hand polished stainless steel and brings additional weight and torque for an extremely smooth shave.  The S4 MOTO retails for $80.

The S4 MOTO Industrial is limited to ONLY 12 pieces and is unfinished, just as it came out of the wax cast.  The back edge has been sanded and the unit has been quality tested to make sure there are no rough edges.  But other than that, it is UNFINISHED.

Todd Greene, founder of HeadBlade and still lead designer, then used a hand-held engraver to sign his name and number each unit.  Todd isn’t a professional engraver (by any means) but you will never see another S4 MOTO Industrial razor.  Use it, display it, or save it as a collectors item; up to you! But 12 units will obviously sell out within a day or two.  The S4 MOTO Industrial is $125.

The S4 Is Back In BLACK!

S4 Lunar_01_FBEvery few years we introduce a new Limited Edition HeadBlade and we’re proud to bring the S4 Lunar Eclipse to market in 2016!

We always include S4 in the nomenclature because it has significance; the “S4″ actually stands for “Signature Series Stainless Steel.”  Back in the early 2000’s we had a list of athletes/actors/models/influencers who actively endorsed HeadBlade and we wanted to make a nice permanent ‘jewel’ type razor that elevated the HeadBlade brand and created something even more special.  Even though we stopped using the “Signature Series” tag on endorsers (the number of Signature Series HeadBladers became very large!) we kept the S4 name and concept.

We created the first S4 in 2004, then followed in 2009 with the S4 Shadow, and again in 2012 we released the S4 Eclipse.  When we introduced the all new ATX we had to make an S4 version of that and dubbed it the S4 Shark.   So why would we follow up with a black version of the original design?  Simply; demand.

Over the years we’ve had many ‘original’ HeadBladers, who love the Classic/Sport configuration of pushing, instead of pulling, ask us for one more Limited Edition of that model…as they missed their buying opportunity and want another!

Always set with a production run of 5,000 or less, every S4 Edition has sold out within two years.  Each has been priced around $100.

The newest S4 Lunar Eclipse is set at a production run of 3,000 and we’ve lowered the price to $74.97 as we will not be offering it wholesale to any other accounts (hence we can lower the retail).  It includes free shipping and a free HeadCase.  This is for the loyal HeadBlader that prefers the ORIGINAL design over the ATX, and wants a razor handle that will last for many many years!

The S4 Lunar Eclipse comes with a free HeadCase and includes one HB3 blade.

Stay smooth!
