The Bluebeards Revenge has launched an innovative pair of barber safety gloves that aim to change opinions within the industry.
As professionals, it’s important for barbers to take every precaution to protect themselves and their clients when performing a classic wet shave. And while using a fresh blade for every shave is the industry norm, the argument for wearing gloves rages on.
Premium men’s grooming brand The Bluebeards Revenge is committed to improving the already high standards of barbering and shaving. As a result, the brand is proud to announce the release of its latest barbering innovation – The Bluebeards Revenge Barber Safety Gloves.
These barber gloves are first and foremost a safety precaution; wearing them will provide barbers with an extra layer of protection against clients that might have scalp and skin disorders such as folliculitis and impetigo. This protection is provided by tried and tested padding that promises to please barbers and clients alike.
Breathable materials are utilized to keep hands cool and free of sweat, while textured gripping segments are implemented into the palms and fingers to keep your razor secure at all times. A reliable Velcro strap also helps to improve the fit of the gloves. After all, there’s nothing worse than trying to handle a soaking wet, slippery razor midway through a luscious shave.
Other quirky additions include a reinforced pocket on the front of the gloves that is perfect for storing fresh blades, a built-in camera and WiFi that makes Instagramming your latest masterpiece even easier, and a finger hole that allows you to easily flick through your social media feeds in between clients.
Leading barber Callum Marks, from Luka’s Barbers in Plymouth, was only too happy to put the gloves through their paces.
He said: “Some people have been commenting on the similarities between The Bluebeards Revenge Barber Safety Gloves and the traditional boxing mitts that are often seen on the fists of professional athletes, but I really don’t see it. They are an innovative piece of kit that will transform the way barbers feel about wearing gloves. Better still, they’re barely even noticeable on your hands. They’re super light and very easy to manoeuvre in. I’ve used them with a whole bunch of clients and had absolutely no complaints… Well, there was one complaint, but I knocked that guy clean out!”
