Have a dad? Know a dad who’s pretty cool? Want to treat him to something he’ll love to the moon and back? Don’t let Father’s Day sneak up on you on the 18th, it’s racing up on our asses pretty quick.
Because it is your barber’s job to make your life a little bit easier in the areas of our purview, we rounded up a little listicle of our picks for dads this Father’s Day. And when you pick out a trio of goodies from any of the below brands for said dads, we’ll throw in a secret surprise equal to up to 20% of your purchase – for him, or for you!
Remember, if your giftee is already a client of Beardsgaard, we can look up the products he already knows and likes, and guide you to the things we know he’s going to love. Just call us the Gaardians of Gifting.
For the Geek Dad
River Peak Apothecary: Made by barbers and built atop a layer of fantasy worlds, if you have a bearded dad that owns a hardcover copy of the Silmarillion, our house-made brand will give him plenty to explore.
For the Straight Edge Dad
Mitchell’s / Irving Barber Company / Glazed Over & Fired Up: If the dad on your list is the clean-shaven variety (they totally come here too, it’s not just beardos!) we have an incredibly fine selection of shave goods and goos that will make him feel ridiculously good-looking and stupid pampered.
For The Dirty Work Dad
Hudson Made: If the dad on your list is a maker, a worker, or does the kinds of jobs that cover him in gook (as some of the most fun things in life do), he needs Hudson Made in his life. They are beautifully crafted soaps out of the Hudson River Valley that have gotten 100-year-old barber chair grease off us. And for those who have noted how good it smells in our shop, it’s mostly these things.
For the Dapper AF Dad
Captain Fawcett: Does he own both a beard and tweed? Then go for the Captain. Regal, refined, and straight outta the UK, this brand was built for proper gentlemen explorers with not a small amount of cheekiness.
For the Really Good Haired Dad
Prospector’s Pomade: One of the finest pomade finishes we have tried, and sporting tins so gorgeous they’ll class up a bathroom something fierce, Prospector’s makes the most of truly great hair.
For the Handcrafted Dad
Merlin’s Beard: Offering both lushly-scented and unscented handmade beard and shave products, Merlin’s Beard shines especially bright in their woodworking. Beard combs, shave brushes and safety razors are all made by hand, with love, right here in Illinois.
For the Treat Yo’ Self Dad
Davines: This dad is the type of frugal that prefers to spend his money only on perfectly crafted things that stand the test of time. You wouldn’t think hair products would be in that category, but when you’re finishing a container a year later after a year of your best hair ever, Davines will have hooked you hard.
For the Biker Dad
Iron Heritage: A line of pomades and beard oils that smell like an expensive garage – pipe tobacco, leather, cedar, one client remarked how one of the beard oils smelled just like the backseat of his dad’s 1967 Thunderbird.
For the Community Dad
Midwest Beard & Moustache Company: Beard and shave products made right down the way in Aurora, and available in scents to match a variety of characters. But if keeping it local is important to the dad on your list, this is a feel good/look good situation right here.
For the Badass Dad
Reuzel: Made for punks, rebels, and greasers alike, if the dad on your list is too cool for school, Reuzel is his brand.
