Introducing BOLD Shave: Founders Story


Founders of Bold Shave

We are Will & Kate, the duo behind BOLD Shave. We've dedicated the past 7 years to improving the shaving experience for thousands of customers worldwide.

Fed up with the poor quality shaves offered by modern razors, Will decided to dig deeper and uncover the secrets of traditional grooming. His research led to discovering the world of single blade razors, renowned for their high quality shaves, precision and craftsmanship.

In 2016, we embarked on a mission to provide the finest single blade razors, including safety razors, cut throat razors, and straight razors. We launched our flagship brand and website, Barbarossa Brothers, quickly garnering acclaim from shaving enthusiasts and barbers worldwide. Our commitment to excellence earned us the coveted top spot for single blade razors and clippers by The Independent, and numerous features in publications like GQ.

As our clientele grew, we recognised a gap in our offering: head shaving. While it was possible to use a single blade razor, it required preparation, skill, and the occasional nick. In our quest for a superior solution, we researched the market and discovered that rotary shaving heads offered unparalleled convenience, comfort, and a closer shave than standard electric trimmers. Partnering with one of the world's leading manufacturers of rotary shavers, we unveiled our pioneering model, the GoldSkull Pro.


We've proudly supported over 15,000 head shavers to date, using their feedback to continuously enhance our product. We've learnt a lot from hearing about our customers' hair loss journeys. 

Embracing hair loss can be a difficult journey, with individuals exploring various avenues along the way such as hair loss treatments, wigs, hair transplants or SMP. There's no one-size-fits-all approach to handling hair loss, your chosen path must resonate with you.

However, we frequently we hear how empowered people feel when they commit to shaving their head and being in control of their hair loss.

BOLD Rebrand - Meet the BOLDS

In 2023, we embarked on a rebranding journey, introducing BOLD Shave. The word "bold" captures the spirit of our community and aligns seamlessly with our mission to empower head shavers worldwide. Embracing the bald look requires courage, it signifies taking control and realising that hair does not define you.
