Today we welcome back EastWing Grooming Co, who we look forward to having at Brighton Open Market on Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th November and Sunday 2nd December at Worthing Charmandean. Find out more about them ahead of the fair…
Please introduce yourself and your brand….
EastWing Grooming Co has quickly become a popular choice for bearded gentlemen, growing rapidly in popularity due the quality and style of their range. Company owners James & Gary create luxury styling beard care products, gaining celebrity endorsements from professional sportsmen such as local Brighton captain Bruno Saltor. Their products work to the highest standards keeping guys beards and skin soft and moisturised with luxurious aromas.
Due to the company’s team of qualified Barbers, Herbalist & Aromatherapist with 35+yrs of expertise, all their oils and balms come professionally blended whilst also looking great with their clean sleek brand and black frosted glass bottles.
How would you describe your style and your creations?
We hand blend 100% natural beard care products for guys who care about their appearance and beard/skin health because we do, so it’s personal for us.
We incorporate a team of industry professionals which gives us an experienced insight into working with natural ingredients compared to the majority of our competitors. Avoiding the stereotypical Viking/lumberjack image associated with beard products, we aim to look after the everyday bearded guy that needs a bit of spoiling.
Guys like their high-end style and luxury products at affordable prices so we deliver that in our creations.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
For two guys who’ve spent over a decade in finance, we’re more used to the office environment. However, in the last year since launching the company, our days are so much more varied. From marketing, social media & magazine interviews to meeting celebs but getting back to basics and designing new product lines that’s always the most enjoyable challenge for us.
It keeps our days (and nights) exciting with the new challenges of growing our little start up idea. The uptake in professional sportsman that have commented on how much they love the aromas, hold and style of our beard oils and balms is a bit surreal but is great fun talking to them. From a small idea, the feedback from customers to national magazines such as GQ, House of Coco and Men’s Fitness makes the long hours’ well worth it.
We just love people loving what we do.
What can we expect to find on your stall at The Fairy Tale Fair Christmas Special at Brighton Open Market this November? And are you looking forward to taking part?
This will be our 2nd year with Fairy Tale Fair and having attended several of their events we know it’s going to be a good. We love the effort Claire and her team puts into making the day special and this Christmas I’m sure will be no exception.
We will be bringing along a range of great stocking fillers of refreshing beard oils for leaving guys beards and skin soft and moisturised as well as firm holding balms to keep the tame. This gives guys the benefit of smelling great whilst styling their beards with nourishing 100% ingredients.
We also have a range of gift sets which include our own trimming scissors and combs as well as our lovely greeting card designed by a local artist.
Do you have a best seller?
It really depends on the person trying it, as a scent is such a personal thing. The Oil & Balm Gift set is always popular as you can mix and match our aromas of Mellow Orange, Sweet Cedar, Fresh Peppermint, Rich Citrus & Tropical Grapefruit. The trimming scissors in black & gold have proved very popular too especially for barbers and hairdressers.
Do you have any plans or ambitions for the future?
We have new packaging out soon incorporating barcodes so we can start approaching major retailers. We fill we’re ready to take the next step.
We’re also reaching out to new stockists, including barber shops, salons and gift shops, so more customers get to find us. We are also expanding our worldwide distributers as we’re already in Hungary & the Seychelles which is incredibly exciting and invite anyone interested to get in touch.
In 2019 we’re looking to expand our range to beyond styling products for beards and diversify what we do into new product lines, so if you don’t have a beard don’t worry we’re working on it!.
Do you have a motto or inspirational quote?
We use the motto “Professional Look, Professional Feel” in everything we try to achieve. If it looks, smells and works to the highest of standards then we know it’s ready for release. Surrounding ourselves with industry professionals helps us achieve this and we continue to evolve and grow our network to maintain our professional image.
Describe your Christmas in 3 words…
