Harry’s started as a men’s grooming brand that was built out of respect for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience and for guys who know they shouldn’t have to overpay for a great shave. Since launching in early 2013, we have been blown away by the customer response to our brand. As we grow our opportunities to communicate with potential customers increase, but with those opportunities comes increased complexity and a heightened need to be thoughtful as we extend. Ensuring we continue to push our thinking, strive for innovation, all while protecting the charm of our brand that has so successfully resonated to date.   

Harry’s is committed to bringing together individuals from different backgrounds and perspectives. We strive to create an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive, feel a sense of belonging, and do great work together.
