Cuts for Nuts 2018

On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, all Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop locations across Canada will be participating in Cuts for Nuts – an event in support of Testicular cancer, prostate cancer, and other men’s health research. During the Cuts for Nuts event, $10 from every haircut or shave will be donated to The Movember Foundation. Those who donate $50 dollars or more will receive a free, limited edition gift on behalf of Tommy Gun’s and Movember.

The reason we partner with Movember is simple really; Men have nuts, Men also need haircuts. Tommy Guns and Movember value collaboration and together our two organizations have a long history of empowering men and creating solutions that allow them to live their life and live it well. Movember has been a huge focus for Tommy Gun’s from the very beginning. Cuts for Nuts and our collaboration with Movember is about so much more then developing funds. We know that by partnering with Movember – they are taking a holistic approach to men’s health, focusing both on cancer research and mental health as well.  A culture of silence has effected men’s longevity and the way they live their lives – we hope that Cuts for Nuts starts a conversation and gives our customers an engaging way to support men’s health by simply coming in for their usual cut or shave.

So make sure you join us on November 6th to help change the face of men’s health and show your support using the hashtag #CutsForNuts.

What Makes a Tommy Gun’s Grand Opening Awesome?

At Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop, we love a good event, function, shindig, hullabaloo, celebration, occasion or ceremony.

So it comes as no surprise that our Grand Opening Events are much more than just offering a discount to get people through the door. The goal is to showcase who we are as business owners, bearded brethren and fans of facial hair.

All of our shops are locally owned. We aren’t some big conglomerate looking to obliterate small business. Our model of business was hand crafted with care in Red Deer, Alberta and we have stayed true to our small town roots as we quickly became know for more than just a haircut and a shave. Grand Opening’s help us achieve our goal of becoming Canada’s Most Loved Barbershop.

All of our Grand Opening’s feature a Haircuts by Donation aspect, where customers donate however much they want to a local charitable organization in exchange for a haircut. All of the proceeds raised make an impact directly on the lives of men and their families in the surrounding community.

We do this by supporting charities and causes that support the overall health and well being of men, whether that be mental health causes, men’s cancer research and other health related issues.  We do this by supporting kids, because some men are Dads and some kids grow into men. We also do this by supporting animals, because the saying “man’s best friend” exists for a reason.

This is why we have Grand Opening’s. To help guys build trust in our brand by not only delivering a kick-ass haircut or straight razor shave, but by showing that we actually give a @#$% about what happens in our community.

If you do too, and happen to live in the Edmonton area – check out our next Grand Opening on October 27th @ 671 – 109 Kingsway Garden Mall NW.

All donations will go directly to Crystal Kids, “a community based provider of intervention and prevention services with outcomes-based service delivery. Our formula for mentoring youth combines strength-based principles with a harm-reduction model and a focus on relationships and capacity building.”

Big Bushy Mustache – TG Review

In the third release off his self-titled debut album, Jake Shears, front man of the Scissor Sisters, affectionately and aggresively shares his passion for a “Big Bushy Mustache”. And who would have guessed, but everyone here at Tommy Guns is stoked on it (as we are about most facial hair references).

The music video is equal parts sexy and disgusting. Fitting; considering the polarizing nature of most flavor savers.

Whether you are looking to maintain your big bushy mustache – or  if Shears video wanted to make you shave yours off, the team at Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop can help out no matter how big or small you want your mustache to be.
