Hi, I'm to hear a joy. Founder of the cut life and you are tuned into the cut life podcast, where we talk all things short hair, hair stylist, celebrities and beauty news. Are you ready to cut up? Hey, everyone is to hear a joy. Welcome back to the Cutlife podcast, and today I have the Barber Star gracing me with his presence, Mr Marcus Harvey. You know, before he jumps on, I have to give you all of his stats. Okay, he is an amazing barber who has a very high profile celebrity clientele. Hey, nuys, I mean everyone is important, but he's the most important to me. So Hi. And then he is the owner of the Mussilayer right here in Atlanta, Georgia, where I am also based. He is a spokesman for Bebel and squire. Look at that. And then, not only that, but he's for it, for it into TV as a Costar and ghost brothers, and continuing his entrepreneurial journey with the brothers Gourmet. We got pancake and waffle mix. So markets, and then, don't you do lose. I love it. I love it, I love it. How are you? A mazing how are you? Thank you so very much, miss joy. I truly appreciate the opportunity to common because the cut life like I've even seen your journey, you know me and you kind of have a marriage journey, like just the way that you've transitioning like really exploded this brand. You know, I've seen people's brands explode off of you just giving your gracing of that, of your approval. So I'm just blessed to be here. I appreciate it. No, I appreciate you and I was thinking, like the first time we actually saw each other in person was at essence festival, and this had to be two thousand and nineteen, because it's been two years since they've had essence and it's coming back this year. So we'll see if we're both there again and had have a reunion. I'm beater regards if if somebody got me there or if I'm gonna be Outma be out there. Yeah, I think we're all ready to get outside for sure. So before you know we get into your background, we always like to have fun with a little hot topic. So I came with came up with a question that I think you could help the people answer. So how does a client or vice versa stylist barber. How do you break up with each other if the client doesn't want to go to this barber silence anymore? And it can be, you know, the other way around. Maybe a client is just getting on your nerves, that never on time, they always trying to give you half a payment. How do you go about breaking up with your barber or breaking up with your client? Well, that's kind of unique because I've been, I've been majoring in breakups lately.

I don't know, fortunately and unfortunately, I guess, as they would say. But what I've realized is something one of the advices that I've given the past is like everybody's time and energy aren't meant to be collected at the same time for that type of service. We all know, as you know, in the cut like we all know like the spiritual and physical and mental like like experience it is to be at a at a barber shop. You know I'm saying. So neither one of the barber, nor the Stylus, nor the Stylus, nor the client, nor the client and Stylus need to even be having time where their energy is not necessarily matching, or so with me. I've had the Mussilayer. That's actually one of the reasons why I open up the Mussell Ayer was at the time I was actually traveling a lot with nads and a lot of sorry, go ahead, allow my clients were looking for you. Somebody will go to and you know, you know, sometimes my schedule wouldn't allow it and sometimes it would allow it, and so, you know, some people just I just had to start like referring just having a good network of like Barber's and Stylus in the community that I really rock with. I think it's a way that a barber can fire a client right really refer clients to other people that might fit each other's personality. Everybody deserves to get their hair done and everybody deserves to get that fresh book. Everybody deserves that, especially in our you know, in our mindsets right now, our age right now, with so much mental health and stuff going on. Everybody deserves as time. But there's a million people out here. This's like six million people in Atlanta, and there's like what, maybe a hundred thousand, if that, thirtyzero forty five thousands of barbers, not a gang of yes styles anymore. You know it. So I mean everybody can code to anybody else. Now for us, for an amazing client who wants to change to an amazing barber or stylist, how you would you fire your old barbering Stallus the powers in your wallet. Literally, just go on any squire and go pook on, get scar look and just find you a barber in the area that you know and look at their work. Go to the Instagram, you know, see what the reviews are on their yell see what the people are saying in their comments. You know, see what kind of response to give you when you reach out to them. You know, all these little all these little small nuances kind of will show if your if your time will, you know, be valued and loved, you know, in your money too, because, I mean, yes, we don't go nowhere unless we have clients. You know, my whole foundation was built one the everyday client and it's still on that same situation. I love that. I mean, I've never personally had to break up with the stylist. Usually, when I change stylist, it was because either I was moving out of state or...

...they were moving out of state. So fortunately I work with many amazing stylists and it was just proximity that changed the relationship. But yeah, and I've had one off experiences that I won't mention where I'm just like yeah, I just won't be booking there, that's here anymore. That's all. I don't conversation needed. I just won't be pressing the book button on that one. That's all. That is exactly. Well, speaking of foundation, let's talk a little bit about just your passion for barbering and where that all started for you. Well, shoo, I've been in the industry and my passion started probably when I was twelve. My mom, me and my mom. Of course, you know, I was a part of a single parent mother. But my stepfather came right in the nick of time, right around my Likesen, ten years old, eleven years old, but he was still work a lot, so I really didn't have a lot of interaction with him. He be working a lot. He was a painter. My mom was she was just corporate America. So I had a lot of time by myself as as a young kid. So you know last key kids. You know we in the n s week hard kids. You know, come on say you know. Yes, I've been. I've been having the key since I was in kindergarten. So listen, say no seeing these kids. I would. Man, I'm nervous. I don't even know if you can get to the house. You know I'm saying. But right, hey to they just just drop you in the middle of the hood and you got to get back to the crib every day or you getting to whooping. But nonetheless, I was just using my time and one day there was the barbershop that was going to the tow BARBERSD and Mario were working at this shop called fils barber shop in Ginette County. They decided to open their own shop called called Cross cuts and cross up here in Atlanta. Yeah, Gwinette County, not not, I don't Lanta. Not, see, I'm aready. Got Everybody Shit. Okay, I love Goingette County. Shoot, you know, are all the parts of with Atlanto or George and made a Landa. So, I mean that's how I feel about that. Let'sten. I'm at Ella Wood girl. So you know, I'm been with my city to is. You know what me is. So, man, yeah, right off at Jimmy Carter. So I wash. Yeah, going net so cross cutters on Jimmy Carter. I would I lived in this place called Forest Belle, which is right right behind it. So there's this little past that I would take just to go get my hair cut. And one day, on a Thursday, I actually had to stay there because, you know, I went straight from after school, straight to go get my hair cut. My mom made me get my hair cut. And of course, you know they're not going to put the kid, little kid, in the cheer immediately. They don't get all they they clients first, and then who are so I'm sitting there for like six, seven hours. It is back in the day when there was no oh my God, I'm sitting in there just for a little time for babysitting. You pretty much pretty much this was free babysitting. Like my mom was chilling, she was watching her she was watching will of fortune, chilling and enjoying her die, enjoying her life, right. But I was just sitting there and there's this young this young brother, who was like sweeping up here and like fixing...

...up the magazines and like going to get all the lunches and was a booleg man come in and he'd get, you know, Russell, a shirt. You know, I'm saying, just get like. So this guy named Russell was just like sweeping up here. Shouts out to Russell, owns the shop. Now to in going the county. Okay, Russell, yeah, Russell. So Russell was actually the genesis of the barber stars. So if it wasn't for Russell sweeping up here, I would be cutting air because, wow, oh, he brought me into learn how sweet hair I asked Mario and d like a sweet hair on the weekends like Russell was doing. He taught me how to do it. I was literally sweeping hair from twelve to like fifteen. I started cutting my my homeboys hair on the team's basketball team, football team. So I've always been cutting athletes. Of course, my home team starting on first and you know, it's kind of like grew from there. Man was in a small town called more sound to the sea, because I had moved to Tennessee my ive. Heard of that sound. Yeah, heard of Corsetown Morse health. They were everybody talks like this. What are you doing, Harvey? I Love Your I love you, Harvey. You're so you're I love your wife. What are your way? Oh my Gosh, I love your wife. So that's a TV star came made right there. You see, that. That's it, that's just the me whatever. But nonetheless, though, he so my mom got to a little guy, to an accident and hurt her knee really bad. So we had to move to Tennessee with my grandparents. So the small town more sound if you know it, you've heard about it, very small town, literally, like you know, just a very small town. So there was no barbers. So I literally had to take what I was like learning watching over all those years, sweeping up here like it was like it was like a karate kid type moment, like wax on wax. Also. That's so, you know, I've been, you know, been training, you know, cleaning all the barber's clippers. I know how to clean clippers, I know how to like adjust clippers, I know if they're going to be too sharp, all these little things that I've been learning since I was like twelve. So I had to implement them when I was, you know, in the Wilderness, as they would saying. First Time says that fade. Wilderness is crazy now these day. Nowadays, I actually saw some young boys had to do a Tennessee Barber Expo this I think it was in lactob. I just got done doing it and some young boys from Morristown had a I don't bloatle barbers. I was like, Oh okay, I said, look at jobs up. So, yeah, they trying to put it on the map now. So I'm starting to see even now, like small towns or even expanding out with the expansion of like the Internet. You know, no longer is it just that you I'm stuck in a small town and I can't get a good care cut. Now everybody can cut. Social media has brought us together. You know, it's making you know you can become a youtube star living at any town. As long as you have access to a smartphone, you can pretty much promote from anywhere in the world. Yep, yeah, I love it. So you grew with this passion, you had this experience. I love the...

...fact that you know, you were willing to learn every aspect of it and not just going straight into I'm cutting hair, but I'm sweeping there more. I'm doing every aspect everything, and I think that, you know, foundations are so important and sometimes people forget that. Like I'm as baby, so I'm used to the mix of work, but then also the ease that social media and some of these technologies have brought into our lives. So I feel like it's like the best of both. So as your career has grown during this time, and you said you cut athletes when you were, you know, younger people that are on your team, but now you're cutting athletes like grant he'll. So how do we get from there to these high profile clients touring with nives? I mean you have a lot of people that you work with. I personally met knows. He's put my producer and mass probably laughing in the background, because I just want to hear the node story. How y'all started working. Okay, I care about all your clients, but I okay, I mean I have this set of time for the cutlight, shoes, the cutlight. I'm also so, you know, since I'm must stay here. But my key to success and getting my celebrities was I've always treated everybody like a celebrity. So my whold life has been based in servicehood. So I was not only did I start off sweeping here, you know, cutting my friends, teammates and all these other things, but when I got to college I got really deep into the church and I became an armor bearer. So as my armor bearer, I was my pastor, armor bear for thirteen years. So I was always about like, you know, knowing how to anticipate what the ASS would be. You know I'm saying, prior to even it being asked. I went to Empire Beauty School in Dunwoodie. Shots out to empire. Yeah, yes, yes, real quick, all empire. You know, we got a gang sign empire, not a gang empire. I don't know if it's really don't get either that empire the thing. Well, you know, the crowns up. So, but I went to empire, you know, I'm done witty. And it was amazing because, like, I was actually inspired by like all the young ladies who will go on there, you know, having, you know, families and still getting their license, you know, pushing trying to get, you know, take their talent from just in the kitchen to like, you know professional. So one time there's a young lady named Karen Owens who works in who owned doche hair design. She came and spoke at our spot. I was inspired. I started working forwards, her assistance. I work for caring as her assistant for like six years. So at the time I was a pat, my passes assistant. I was her assistant, and so I just always had this like knowing how to know what the next as. I love this trend that you have of spotting, you know, professionals and talented people and having a...

...way of humility, being able to provide service to them, to work and learn from them, because that's something that I feel is missing. Like, you know, coming from the era of in turning, I interned in radio and record labels back in my pr days, prior to the cut life, my whole music pr days, and you know, you don't necessarily hear a lot of that now, like people just want to hit the ground running, like where's my check, and there's not, like you said, attention to being of service to people and how valuable that can be in growing your business. Yeah, I mean, that's literally, I mean that's that's the key to my success. I can't even front like I've been groomed to be a help you feel me, and I just learned how to like turn you know, being someone who serves to know, somebody who rules in a sense. You know I'm saying. I still keep that humility as yourself, not in a sense. Yeah, I mean, you know, in every since yes, pretty much like the number one if there was like a category, like a one, you know, or a list celebrity barbers. Like I mean I literally have cut like maybe twenty different and be a hall of famers. I've cut several rap gods. I've cut several actors. I've done several television shows, movies, you know, comedians. The top Comedians rock with me, like it's just like I've cut. I've cut the warriors and the cast. When it was warriors cass it was crazy. It was just wow, amazing situations that's gone on. been on tour with NAS, been traveling the world with nods, but the way that I got on Nas but shots out to Ceylon Ramsey, ransie shepherd. If everybody are in Atlanta, everybody should know who Ramzi Shepherd. Yes, Ramsy Shepherd was pretty much the first person. I feel like was the one who started the the salas sweet space in a sense, like the way. I mean I do went to one of his buildings, because there's like two, I think, and I've been in one and it's just like sweets everywhere, all sweets. And this is then two thousand and like what ten eleven or something of that nature. So, so Ramsey. At the time that I joined them, and this goes back to Timmy and assisting at the time I joined them, Ramsey was at had three shots. He had to in Buckhead, which really like clausof Farrow, real small joints, real small joints, and then he had another one in downtown that was off of Edgewood that he is about to convert to go to ten street, and then he was by the one in ten street. So he took everything to ten street and still have the to buckhead. I was with him and I maybe had like three or four barbers. So he's like, yeah, I'm about to really focus on try to make these expand this brand and I'm really done with like cutting my time in half and having it like, you know, cut hair and then go back to like it just is not working. So I really much rather just focus on here. So...

...he literally gave me all of his clients. Wow, this not first off, he gave me off his regular clients, is every day, every week lines and he was giving it to me like doshch just like he's like he was like Yo, man, one of my homies needs a haircakee. You might getting him. Yeah, I get them kill it. You know, this is back in two thousand and ten, before anybody was doing any facials. They weren't do no hot towels. They want to doing those shampoos before the cuts I was getting. I was getting clown for this, like they maybe doing too much. You know, I'm saying this back and now people can't live without those that o like, Hey, when cash was talking about that Paul stuff, you know, everybody was talking like the it's like, man, you doing too much. Man, getting them cast some hot towels, shampoo and make sure that this scup was clean. So then make sure that the campus is clean, so that can make you that my work is clean. So, because clean never goes out of silence. We all know. You know I'm saying. So I really was white like with was really diligent and making sure that each person that Ramsey gave me felt like a celebrity and would take the word back to him, like, Yo, Marcus is official. Matter of fact, marcus is what you were going to be if you wanted to focus on Barbara. Right. So he's getting these reviews back, old school reviews, and finally, one day this is what Nas was living in Georgia. You know, he Ramsey was that's the only person was keeping, you know, Ras, he was keeping. He's like now I'm still cut nos. So he's cutting eyes and he's going on to a Nis and he's just like man, he got into business with Os and I became a partner with him. Right, so he's I heard that on the streets to that NYS had investment in Salon Ramsey and this was prior to me even being starting the cutlf because I s already two thousand and thirteen. MMM. Yeah, so he sees. So he was an investor into the like when it became the super large joint. It's mass their partner. So he's focused on staying. So he's like a number one barber at the time. Was Me ain't know, like listen, Hey, come on, everybody, it's Lon range, no number one bar where there was marking. So he literally gave me Nays. Now here's the funny thing. It was me and another barber. I will not name the barber bes me. We're protecting the names of the innocent. Orguelty. That literally, and this is goes back to being humble, real talk, right, but me and the other barber and buckhead works side by side. We moved to downtown. We were on two different we're two different buildings. So it's kind of like so, ran, we give me get both. Would like, you know, have not as go to both of us. So there's actually an opportunity, because this is before devil came out. So Na's got this African and this deal right, and I was on. I was out on I was doing something. I forgot. I was doing something that that made me be out of town. I think I was either like out of town for some something, church or...

...something where I could not do the day right. It was just something like rending, but like they let the other barber do the and is do the end. It's like deal with NAS, but I've been cutting offs for like maybe three, four weeks straight, right, HMM. I was like Oh man, so I was like Dang, that's kind of disappointed. But after that, like for some my reason, I don't know what it was, old boy and them fell out and not started coming to me after that and like when it was when I tell you, from then on to like maybe ripeing, like the pandemic, is the only thing that stopped me from going back and forth right from then to the pandemic man, like literally every tour, every video shoot, every photo shoot, like I was rocking with the do in the way that I stuck with him because the first tour I went on with Nas. I'm sorry about sound like a rampling. No, no, I'm are you not eating all of this stuff please? So I think the way that I would like, I said, goes back to humility. So I was, like I said, my pass is armor bear. So any time I passion needed anything, I don't mind fixing the drink. I'll fix you some tea. You just get done preaching on my get it, you know, fix you some tea. I'm getting the top. Bro I don't mind doing all that. So I'm using this stuff. Karen, you need me to do a relax, you need to do a roller set, you need to do a blow dry, you need me to do a shampoo, you need to do all are you got them skills? To only find out, man, let me. I'm a license conselent. If I got if I was a stylist, they be called me the style star and listen and I missing. Yep, that would want me to be no style. I just I'm so pretty. Be Stylish, but I'll be in trouble. But none of less, though, what was so dope about it was like we're on tour Norway, and the first two I went out there with him, I did not really know. I like, I would always go to this house, but to be very haircut, maybe a few conversations, very quiet guy. You know, for the first year we really didn't have a lot of conversation, you know, just like Oh, yeah, you know, I was crack some jokes. is at the time I was instead of comedy. And so wait, yeah, yeahs I do. Said I do all that stuff. I did not know. Go look up mark, Marcus Harvey, stand up comedy, laugh, factory, all making sense to me now, Marcus continue, everything is coming together. So it does. God has a plan. Okay, God has I'm trying to say, if you have multiple if I could sidetrack, if you have multiple talents, men, do not diminish or look at you can only pick one. You should pick all of them to work together as one. Yes, you can only take them to be one. Not, you don't have to pick one. You can only pick them to be one. So I use my humor, my humility and my hands to get me where I'm at. So yes, we on tour first two of the NAS like it's me, his right hand and his security. So it's a very small group that we rock with. Nash's brings his Barber Block Hook, it's some other people. If he needs other people, we got to but he's very, very boom it. We in...

...and outs very stealth. So we're on like maybe we're in Norway. So it's like we go from Atlanta, Georgia to Norway. So we took like three flights and then, like it's cold. so He's two shows in, he starts getting a cold, starts like raspy. So I'm like, Oh, my pastor, I know to do this because my pastor, beginning right, I made I made not some teeth through, a little through, a little recol out in the joint, some honey cooke, but don't know, lane here are razzled as. All I need is one like cat come back out rapping like his, I mean like you like. So it was just like being able to be somebody who can say, like, Yo, I'm not just a barber, yea, if you need anything, I got you right here, right and making yourself useful, and I think that's what like. That was one of the main things. Like, after years later, he's like Yo, that's the thing that actually, like really stood out to me, your willingness to like serving, not like finding, like crazy, I'm not no yes man, but it wasn't like I didn't find it above me. Like you said, we're from the S, you know I'm saying, like we know about how to be humbled, to be in turns, to like pick up a bag, to do whatever needs to be done so that whatever needs to be done to be done you feel exactly Um. So that's how I learned. And then and the other way that I the other way said there's two ways, like, Bro, and you make when you made that tea because I was getting sick, and you got me straight, Bro, I was able to go through the rest of the tour and we make money. Like if I want to be if I got sick with that canceled dates, she wouldn't have it. You wouldn't have no bread, I wouldn't have no bread. We would have been right for you to step in that school, he said. The second thing was when we were on that tour, I started roasting one of these one of the promoters, and and it was like this guy and I just started mocking them. I just started doing it in personal impersonation of them and like I had had nois and like literally tears, like he said. That's where, that's what got you said, I've always stuck to is like what makes me, what makes my career what it is that I've always remained me, like I've written comedy for Sedsions Entertainer, I've been like I've been writing for like, I've wrote stuff for Roy was Julia, I've written stuff for Mike EPPs. I've done so many I feel like I feel like forest gump sometimes, like on some randomness of I'm saying because, like every time, all my greatest accomplishments have come because I was willing to be like, Yo, I got you what you need, you know, said. Well, person now is more so like what you got for me. I need, you know I'm saying, and I don't, and I'm hoping that we can start figuring out some ways to kind of like get the communication a little bit different with art, with the new generation coming up now. Absolutely, I racial absolutely no, I relate to you so much with everything that you said, because you know, the secret sauce...

...is you, and a lot of times people don't realize that because you'll make a lot of pivots in your life. I mean that's just what comes with life. You have unexpected things. I mean I had a whole PR agency newing music and entertainment and then went completely in another direction to beauty, and people are looking at me like, but you're known in Atlanta for being the PR girl that works with Little Chris and all these people. What is the cut, like, where are you doing now? They're like, Oh, okay, we understand, and then you realize the secret sauce is really you and being yourself and how you know, how you show up, is what really you know, speaks to people. And speaking of speaking to people, you are a spokesperson for Bevil yes choir to major, Major, Major, had to put that three times, brands in the male grooming space, and I think that is so important because I feel that there's still so much like untapped space within male grooming, especially for me, like working in the influencer space and seeing so, you know, many women of all ethnicities talking about beauty and lifestyle and all of that and then I'm like, man, if I was a guy right now, I would be trying to wrap up because I feel like there's still so much room for people, you know, for that male grooming space. So talk to me a bit about the bevil partnership and the Squire Partnership. I mean, I can imagine how it came about because your mark is harvey the Barber Star, but you tell me how you got involved with them. Um, well, you know again with that. Yes, the milk. Thank you for that. That's a nice compliment. I think this space, yes, it is growing, but one thing I feel like the female hairspace has is a built in infrastructure as far as rates and value of what you create and you'r the value that you bring as an artist to the table. You know, if you've noticed people be like you never hear. You never hear somebody's like like how much for your your girl? You know, unless it's like a bad hairstyle, if it's a great nobody ever asks you how much for your hair girl. They be like they killed it. But for do like I can. I mean I can get casts like like gloss and cats be like you pay what you know. So it's like really redoing the value. But what's been amazing is the two companies that I've work with have been two major people to show the value of the Black Mile Barber as well as in the black man hair space. We can say ethnic space of all that. But brothers have different here. We just...

...yeah, like we do not have the Hispanic are we don't have the straight hair, we don't our face don't fall like those. You have to really put some work into make our joints the glossy and just fly like me have it like we always do. And so the two companies that I work with, Squire and Bevil, it's just been a blessing because one thinking about back about it now, you know I've been like with them since. I've been with Bebel since Twenty Fifteen, or twenty in two thousand and fifteen, and I've been with Squire since two thousand and sixteen, and that was a very, very good year to and curzy how those years fly by, because I'm like wow, it's been that long, it has, and that's crazy, like it's Dang like. So the way that I got on with Bevil was I was NAS was working with I was working with another company and I was actually going to pitch this work, this company, with Nice to be one of his time so he can invest, because this is when he first started the Queen's capital type situation, the venture capital fun and, you know, investing in different companies. And so I was like, you know, I was cool with us. You know, you know me working in on that. If I was like, yeah, I would love to be a partner, he was. So he's like, well, actually, I already have something that I'm working in development. You know, maybe we'll bring you in later on that. So fast forward, like I said before, I do all this shoots all the things that nature, my homeboy gay, Gay g coode gave Brison. That's a gay, the one and only, and shots out to cassidy. Cassidy, those into the two people who really are responsible for my partnership with devil, because Bevil is about to have somebody, just a random actor, do the video. How you know the first video? Yes, yes, that's actually me and there and so this one, I was a big boy. I was big, while they slowed back, I got all slim. Yeah, now we're workout clothes. That's all I do, is we're work out big but like yeah, like so gay was like Nah, we need we need NA beats his barber for his trimmer if he's going to be invested in bevil right. Put that pressure in. CASSIE's like you you have to put pressure. It makes total sits. Cassie was like yeah, let's let's bring him out met. So I'm on. We are in La on set. We have the the prototype trim as, like wow, this is a very fly true, I like this and I go to the crafty's, like I said, it's a big Bro so I was like looking forward to snacks, that act that and I see this just I see this dude sitting on the on the cooler and look like he stressed that a little bit. Am Man, Drake Christian and and I said Yeah, man, I'm so sorry. Man Like like he didn't know what that was going on. This is the first time, you know, he's kind of in doing all the stuff that he's doing right now, and so like it was just funny to see, like that's what we first meant and might from there. We had a great conversation. He's like yeah, and I'm actually you...

...know this, actually my company, Blas a block, Christin Walker. Yeah, so it's like this is my company, I'm you know. You know, we're just trying to do something. was like brother's amazing designes. I will cool, I love it. You know, talk to you more about, you know, if you can help me with, you know, some of the things that were want to need to improve on it. I'll low to get you, get you involved. He showed me the you know, he showed me the lever system, first lever system, and I was just like wow, that is brilliant. So fast forward, cassidy hits me up, we start talking over extend a period of time. Cassie and Christian bring me in, they fly me to San Francisco. I start doing a little test on all the clippers and then we just start a partner from there and then ever since then I just been working with them. And that's when beble had literally seven employees. Wow, that an employees, and now look at them. PROCTOR and gambled partnership PROBAT RECORD IN ATLANTA. We actually had tristing on the podcast previously and you know, I love to hear the back story of your collaboration because sometimes people just sign up to endorse products and they have no idea like how they work if they're really any good. But to hear that you actually testing the product and seeing like prototypes and everything early on and they really had you involved, I think speaks a lot to their company. And I love even the pivot that they had when it was bevil and then form beauty for the products, but now they kind of merged it where now bebel has, you know, products as well, which I think to me is genius because, listen, I've had male friends of mine in my DM's like tea or texting met I need some products, what should I use? And I have referred bevil so much because I know a the products work well, but they're also like presented in packaged in a way that feel good for a man to have, you know, in their bathroom on their shell, and they don't want to always like steal our products, you know what I mean, but they want something that, you know, perform as well. So I thought even that was genius, saying Hey, like, in addition to the tools, let's also provide the products and you can just one stop shop it for your beard, your hair, like whatever you need.
