Harry’s started as a men’s grooming brand that was built out of respect for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience and for people who know they shouldn’t have to overpay for great products.

Furthermore, in 2018, we launched another brand called Flamingo to provide a similar proposition for women… with both brands in place, it’s now time to share our products with the world. Today we’re looking to bring amazing people, like you, to join our growing company to continue disrupting markets!
