Beyond Blue x Lefty's Fundraising Campaign

Sometimes it’s obvious that a mate is going through a rough time. Often, it’s not clear how we can help. That’s why, from now until the end of May, we’re donating 20% from every purchase of our Lay It On Package to Beyond Blue.


In the spirit of mateship, for 24 hours on Friday 28th February 2020, five independent barbershops from Melbourne’s South East will be donating every cent we make to communities affected by Bushfires. No admin fees, no small print – just a cut for good. You get your haircut, and instead of the money going to us, it goes to people affected by the recent Bushfires. 


“Community to me is standing together,  offering help to those in need, and being involved in positive change and growth for your local members.”

– Tara Taylor, owner @ Lefty’s Barbershop


“Community to me means ‘family’ that aren’t blood relation but being connected and a part of a group of people doing something together to feel a sense of belonging.”

– Kristie Figg, owner @ Westend Barbers


“The Barber Master has always been involved in charity events including sponsoring local football clubs, kindergartens, schools, fundraising events, Movember, Footmen Golf Day, Rotary Club, Leukaemia Shave For A Cure and the Aboriginal community Big Brothers Day Out. Being able to support our community in any way we can has always been of huge importance and a number one priority.” – Debbie Joseph, owner @ Barber Master


Community to us is not necessarily just local. We think in the big picture Australia is a big community, when tragic and devastating events happen great people rally to help out in any way possible, wherever they are. Community to us means people from all ages and walks of life all have a goal of lending a hand and helping when and where needed.” 

– Rex & Shell, owners @ Barkk Barbers


King Brown products are second-to-none in terms of quality and aesthetic. One glance and you can see that heaps of effort went into creating this brand, and their fantastic packaging is matched by the quality of their products – not to mention their admirable approach to sustainability. We had a chat with co-founders Dan Binskin and Daen Brown to find out a bit more about what drives them.


It’s no surprise to discover a scientific mind behind Milkman Grooming Co. This NSW-based producer of men’s grooming products is focused on beards and facial hair, and the quality of their range is a result of the curiosity, positivity and good-humoured approach of Dr Ben de Campo who founded this fantastic brand together with his wife Jacqueline. We had a few questions for them and they were kind enough to let us know their thoughts.


Tucker Browne are a husband and wife team whose haircare and male grooming products are inspired by their love for the sea, driven by a mindset of sustainability and focused on walking the line between functional and beautiful. We were wondering about where the inspiration came from for these beautiful products so we had a chat with main man Lucas Tucker to learn a bit more about the brand.
