Small Business Saturday

This November 25, we want to share Small Business Saturday® with you! It’s a holiday shopping tradition that celebrates small businesses like ours. And it wouldn’t be a celebration without customers like you joining us.

We would love to see you drop in and view products on display at the barbering station inside Fate Salon and hope you take advantage of the special pricing event we have planned for this exciting day!

Movember or No-Shave November?

September is prostate cancer awareness month yet we often hear about men growing out their facial hair in November. What’s it all about?

Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s suicide. There is a lot of motion to this campaign that includes Move for November (get some exercise, have some fun, and raise money for health services). Founded in Australia in 2012, the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a global motorcycle fund-raising event to raise awareness of prostate cancer and male suicide prevention. This year, the ride in Toronto raised $87,586 and was supported by sponsors and 430 riders dressed to the nines on their classic and vintage motorcycles.

The goal of NoShave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.

Raising awareness about men’s health is a good reason to grow a moustache and even to sport a beard but remember that a beard is something that is groomed and maintained, otherwise it’s just scruff. Don’t let November be your excuse to stop taking care of your appearance. Trim and line your facial growth. If you can’t do it yourself make an appointment with your local barber. We can help you ditch the itch of a growing beard as well as provide products to improve hair health and shine to keep you looking your best. Have a look at our beard products. Shop online and choose to pick up your order at Fate Salon or enjoy free delivery within Greater Fort Erie.  You can also stop in and visit the barber at Fate Salon and get a recommendation for your lifestyle.

A Splendor of Autumn

Now that Autumn has arrived you might be thinking about settling in to the cozy and comfortable Cedar and Sandalwood fragrance made by D.R. Harris and known worldwide as their Marlborough line. Established in 1790 and renowned for their top-quality shaving and men’s skin care products, D.R. Harris holds the signatory HRH warrant from the Prince of Wales. We are quite fond of their products, too.

Save more than $50 on the Bolin Webb Gift Set with X1 Fusion compatible razor. This elegant razor defies gravity with magnetic stand. Holiday pricing $146.02 (Reg $199.12)

The Right Way to Shave – November 30 at FEPL

right-way-to-shave_smallOur goal to help men discover a love of shaving came a long way last year at our “The Right Way to Shave” workshop at Fort Erie Public Library Centennial Branch.  We’re still getting great feedback about that event and the demand for another workshop has left us humbled and committed to do it again. On Wednesday, November 30 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm the workshop will be hosted again at Fort Erie Public Library Centennial Branch. Mike Daigle, proprietor of Bridgeburg Gentleman’s Shoppe and barber at Fate Salon will give helpful advice to men who are seeking to step up their shaving routine and eliminate irritation. This hands-on workshop will coach shaving techniques using cartridge system razors, double edge safety razors and straight razors.  Call the FEPL at 905-871-2546 to register for this free event. Seating is limited. When attending the workshop you will need to bring your razor in a mug or small bowl in a medium sized bowl wrapped with a couple of small hand towels. Bring a shaving brush if you own one. Wet shaving cream and hot water will be provided.

Earth Day Every Day

Earth Day celebrations have concluded but it’s never too late to make a resolution to be more kind to the environment. Wet shaving products make it easy to make a difference. A tub or puck of wet shaving cream or soap will outlast a can of foam by several months. These products are concentrated and use little packaging. You add water when ready to use. Our razors can last a lifetime, even generations. For those with sensitive skin double edge replacement blades are 5 to 10 times less expensive than cartridges and contribute far less to landfill. You can easily reduce your contribution to landfill by enjoying the fine products we have to offer. Although you may not save a truck load of money by switching your canned lather for a premium wet shaving cream or soap you will be rewarded with an improved glide during shaving and avoiding chemicals that may contribute to premature aging of your skin. You can appreciate substantial savings by converting from a cartridge razor to a double edge safety razor because the razor will last a lifetime and the replacement blades are inexpensive. If you love your cartridge we can help you wield it in style with a Mach3 or Fusion compatible handle that’s built to last and express your personality. Treating yourself to our premium products makes good economical and environmental sense. Visit us soon and discover how we can elevate your routine and reduce your footprint in landfill.
