Durham barbers pledge for us to back local business and save lives.

Press Release: November 24, 2020


The North’s Best Barbershop asks for support of small businesses and local charity with exclusive Black Friday box release

  • Top barbershop Rum Razor is offering a bargain Black Friday box that contains a year’s worth of discount haircuts, styling products and sunbed sessions. 

  • The box promises to help with post-lockdown glow-ups with £215 worth of products and services - including a stylish t-shirt - for just £150.

  • As well as encouraging customers to support local business, the barbershop is donating £2 from every box to the If U Care Share suicide prevention charity. 


Dunelmians can enjoy bulk haircut bookings, scheduled sunbed sessions and top styling products in Rum Razor’s Black Friday box, which offers more than £50 in savings. 


The box has one voucher for eight haircuts from the top barbers at Rum Razor - that’s equivalent to one every six weeks for a year - and eight four-minute sunbed sessions. 


As well as haircut and sunbed vouchers, the exclusive box includes the barbershop’s top-rated Uppercut Deluxe Matt Pomade and Uppercut Deluxe Styling Powder - both of which are suitable for all hair types to keep their customers’ fresh cuts in check. 

The top barbershop is promoting the discounted services and products as the perfect post-lockdown Christmas gift, to help people get back to looking their best. It could also prove popular with people looking to rectify their dodgy Covid cuts that were done at home.

Alongside the exclusive gift box, they have included a “Lad and Dad Double Cut” deal, which contains two father and son haircuts at up to 20% off the usual price.


Paul Cowen, Owner of Rum Razor said: “We’ve been closed twice during two lockdowns so are having to adapt how we operate. However, as a local business, we’re also passionate about supporting local too. We have links with the suicide charity If U Care Share and thought this was another opportunity to raise awareness of their life-saving work among our customers, while we’ll also donate cash to the charity ourselves. It’s a time when all of us, business and charities, must stick together to support each other and nowhere does that better than the North East.”


The Rum Razor Barbershop, situated in Carrville, boasts over 420 five-star reviews and is built around a community that encourages men to relax, recoup and recharge while enjoying a beer, a chat and a fresh trim. 


One major benefit of the box is that it allows customers to block book appointments with their favourite barber so they never miss a slot, and get their regularly scheduled haircuts at a fixed price throughout the year regardless of cost increases that may occur in 2021. 


And on top of the money-saving vouchers and exclusive products, the Black Friday box also supports the barbershop’s chosen charity, as £2 from every box sold goes to the If U Care Share suicide prevention charity. 


The bargain barbershop box has been released in the run-up to Black Friday on 27th November, and can be purchased here: https://www.rumrazorbarbershop.co.uk/products
