Join The HeadBlade Movember Team

Al Harrington HeadBlade Movember

Grow a Mo! If you haven’t heard of Movember, it’s a worldwide initiative to raise awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, by growing a moustache during the entire month of November. 

"When I started HeadBlade, the goal was to improve the lives of men who shave their heads," said Todd Greene, President and Founder of HeadBlade.  "Shaving your head can be a transformative act, improving confidence, style and overall outlook on life.  It’s a great conversation starter, especially with other guys who share the look.  We were drawn to Movember’s cause and understand the impact of sharing conversation around a style choice."

Join Todd, NBA player Al Harrington and other HeadBladers as we aim to help raise awareness for important issues in men’s health… while having a little fun along the way! Every week we’ll be having contests and prizes to keep the motivation going.

Get started:

  1. Fill out your information on the HeadBlade MoBro Page
  2. Share your page with friends to tell them what you’re doing
  3. Check out Movember’s Fundraising Tips
  4. Keep up with the HeadBlade blog for fun contests and prizes all month long!

Todd Poole – Xterra USA National Championship Sept. 24, 2011

Long-time HeadBlader Todd Poole sent us this video from Utah during the Xterra USA National Championship.  The annual race consists of a 1500m swim / 28K mountain bike / 9.8K trail run.  In other words… a race most of us could never dream of completing.  

Todd has been featured in Triathlete magazine in the past, and has always been a loyal HeadBlader.  Check him out below giving a HeadBlade shoutout, and crossing the finish line of the triathalon.  

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

St. Baldrick's Event with HeadBlade

September is National Childhood Awareness Month.  Since 2008, HeadBlade has partnered with St. Baldrick’s to help conquer kids’ cancer through nationwide headshaving events.  The St. Baldrick’s Foundation currently funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.  

Despite the incredible work St. Baldrick’s has done to raise funds for life-saving research, spreading awareness is as important as ever. Worldwide, more than 160,000 children are diagnosed with childhood cancer each year. One in five children diagnosed with cancer will not survive.

Jack Opens HeadBlade From Plastic Package

Despite the hilarious Curb Your Enthusiasm clip, HeadBlade’s Warehouse Manager Jack thinks there’s an easier way to attack your packaging.  He decided to give a quick demonstration on how to remove a HeadBlade Sport from its plastic package.  As evidenced in the video, he wins every time.  

We want to prevent you from having a Larry David-like fight with your packaging. If you have other suggestions that Jack didn’t cover, let us know.
