Signing up is easy and only takes a moment. Sign up here today! You will be able to customise your deliveries to suit you and we ship new orders out the same day if made before 12 midday.

The Personal Barber is a recurring subscription service that provides you with everything you need to have the best possible shave and to enjoy doing it!

We have two tiers of subscription: 

Essentials Box - A newly picked shaving soap/cream + 10 replacement blades.

Discovery Box - Same as above plus 2 extra full size male grooming items.

Boxes are delivered to your personal shaving schedule and every box is different, to keep your routine interesting.

That's up to you! You select your frequency when you join.

Each kit comes with enough supplies to last 6 weeks of daily shaving so our minimum frequency is every 6 weeks.

You can also choose every 8,10, or 12 weeks (get in touch if you'd prefer a longer frequency)

Our base tier Essentials box is just £14.95 with free UK delivery

Our Discovery box tier is a total of £28.95 with free UK delivery. It includes an average of £35-£55 worth of products so you always make a huge saving.

Essentials Subscription - You can upgrade your first box to the starter kit, which includes our signature safety razor and shaving brush for an additional £14

Discovery Subscription - The starter kit is included as the first box in this subscription.

We get this question a lot, with some people worried about cutting themselves.

Fortunately, it's called a safety razor for a reason! The bar protects you from the blade so you can remove your beard with ease. It does take a few shaves to get the hang of but we include step by step instructions that quickly take you from novice to master in only 1 or 2 shaves.

We're proud to be able to say that over 90% of subscribers tell us they would never go back to their disposable cartridge after trying our razor.

Yes! We have lots of members that shave their head.

It is considered a more advanced technique so it might take a bit longer to get the hang of it but once you know what you're doing it will give just as fantastic a shave as anywhere else.

If you're head and face shaving, make sure to replace your blades more frequently (2-3 shaves).

Of course! Our shaving club is all about discovering fantastic new artisan soaps, creams and more. You can use any razor with the main products we include in the box. 

Yes! If you login to your account, and head over to "manage subscriptions" you can add extra items to your box to save on postage costs.

As the contents of the box changes with each delivery, we can't guarantee it will be allergen-free. However, we do specify the ingredients in each box on our blog page so you can check before you buy.

If a box is coming up with an item that you won't be able to make use of, drop us an email and we will try our best to find you a replacement from a previous box, subject to stock.

Yes. We send out a reminder email, notifying you of your next payment and box, 4 days before it is processed. 

The email includes links to your account page as well as a quick push back button if you want to move your next renewal back by up to 4 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions - Billing/Shipping

Signing up for The Personal Barber means opting into a subscription service that bills you according to your chosen box frequency.

You will be sent a reminder 4 days before your renewal is coming up. Payment is taken on the day of your renewal and your box will usually be shipped to you the same day.

For example, if you are on a 6-weekly membership, you will be charged every 6 weeks and be sent a new box every 6 weeks. You are charged per box you receive.

We aim to send out your box the same day that you place an order (if ordered by 12:00 Midday). The next box in your subscription will be shipped the same day payment is taken.

You will receive a shipping notice via email when your box ships.

It's free. For UK subscribers to our recurring subscription boxes, shipping is included, you don't pay anything extra.

However, buying individual items from our online shop (not the subscription) has a small delivery fee unless you reach the minimum spend of £60. If you buy an item at the same time as the subscription box, we can combine the two into one package and shipping will be free.

£3 to EU addresses for an untracked service
£6.50 to EU addresses for a tracked service

Please note that shipping for subscription boxes internationally is different to the cost of shipping individual items in our online shop. This is because we subsidise part of the cost to make it as cheap as possible for our subscribers.
