“I cannot, if I am in the field of glory, be kept out of sight.”
                                                                                       — Admiral Horatio Nelson, Royal Navy

Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson, RN, the hero of Trafalgar, consort to royalty, tactical genius and old school bad ass with one eye, and a healthy disregard for authority, is the inspiration behind Barber and Commander.  

Like Nelson’s Flagship, HMS VICTORY, Barber & Commander was built from the hull up – from our hemp seeds to the natural waxes – hemp infused buccaneer’s grooming products will help you tame the cruel mistress that is the sea.

Although, we didn’t come up with the whole hemp idea….

Our Ship

Barber & Commander is a small batch, men’s grooming company, based in Lexington, Kentucky. Founded by a U.S. Navy Lt. Commander with products created by a U.S. Army Paratrooper turned Master Barber (Yes, that is a real thing).

Horatio Nelson believed that….

“….in sea affairs, nothing is impossible, and nothing is improbable”.

He wasn’t history’s most famous ship’s Captain for nothing.

Our hair, beard, and pleasure products are handcrafted with the best natural waxes, organic butters, essential oils, herbal extracts, and paraben-free preservatives that you can find.

The Voyage

It has been quite the expedition so far. Barber & Commander was founded in Ben the Barber’s Tennessee kitchen.  Now we hand craft our products, following GMP processes in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Texas.

Our Army Airborne brother and Master Barber then hoisted sail and set off on the hunt for buried treasure. His legacy – extraordinary artisanal men’s CBD grooming products – which our Brew Master Cody, lovingly curates by hand.

The crew at Barber & Commander aim to foster a sense of freedom, adventure, and a feeling of “being underway” – with the sun on your face, a wind filling the canvas, a whiff of faraway islands and barrels full of the King’s rum…..

High Seas Hemp

Hemp has been an integral part of seafaring for centuries. Beginning in the Middle Ages, sailing ships became dependent on Canvas (from the word cannabis), hemp rope, and oakum. In 1535 Henry VIII passed an act, compelling farmers to grow hemp for the Royal Navy.

We figured it was time to revive the centuries old tradition and return Kentucky grown hemp to the daily routine of swashbucklers, adventurers, mariners and, yes, even hipsters.

Barber and Commander uses natural, plant-based formulations. Our CBD infused men’s grooming products are genuinely hand crafted in small batches in Tennessee and Texas – from hemp grown on family farms in Kentucky.

Duty is the great business of a sea officer; all private considerations must give way to it, however painful it may be.
— Admiral Horatio Nelson

Plant Based Chattels

The B&C Crew won’t abide flotsam or jetsam in our natural products – so some of our most popular products are entirely plant based – including – Seven Seas After Shave and the lubricating, Up Periscope Pleasure Gel.

Our hair, beard, shave and pleasure products are handcrafted with the finest natural waxes, organic butters, essential oils, herbal extracts, and paraben-free preservatives that you can find.

What’s With the Names?

Our products are named for Her Majesty’s Ships that fought the combined French and Spanish fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 – Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson’s most famous, albeit fatal victory.

The 104-gun Victory was Nelson’s flagship. Seawolf, Argonaut, Britannia et al, were HM ships of the line (and part of our line-up) which fought with distinction in the most famous and arguably, most consequential naval battle in history.

Being former sailors ourselves, we added a couple of tongue-in-cheek labels, in the best keeping of Jack Tar’s salty humor.

Recollect that you must be a seaman to be an officer and also that you cannot be a good officer without being a gentleman.
