Best Time In History

In Advocate by El Rubio6 Comments

Dear Friend,

Hope you’re doing ok. We’re thinking about the people most impacted right now, from bartenders and servers, hair stylists and barbers, to folks in hospitality and healthcare and lots of others.

As for our team we are partly working from home while one or two of us are going into the office each day to fulfill orders. We’re feeling grateful for a livelihood that hasn’t been hit hard up to this point.

While we aren’t taking things lightly, we do expect to continue operating as usual, from publishing fresh content every week to getting your orders delivered quickly.

Like Never Before

As we live through these unprecedented times, we’ve become acutely aware that never before in history has there been a better time to grow long hair:
  • Working from home
  • No school grooming codes
  • Salons & barber shops closed
  • Swanky affairs postponed
  • Seldom going outside

Removed are the frivolous limitations and archaic restrictions on hair length, making way for the best time ever to grow your hair.

When we do finally go back to work and school, they’re not gonna be thinking much about hair, and by the time they do ask it will be too late. You’ll be halfway through the awkward stage when you hit ‘em with the dear boss letter.

We have a feeling this global event we’re experiencing is going to bring about some changes, hopefully for the better. Maybe the powers opposing long hair will realize, “’s really not that big of deal.”

Growing With Purpose

In any case, with the 1-year anniversary of The Great Cut having passed a few days ago, we kicked off our campaign for The Great Cut 2024.

Though it’s a long way out, we can’t help but think the timing is meaningful. Here everyone has a chance to start growing their hair over a timeframe that would put every person in a perfect position to cut and donate in 2024.

Read into it what you will, we are full steam ahead for another world record attempt, and everything that goes along with it. Definitely check out the 1-Year Anniversary post if you haven’t already.
