Dare to Be Damn Handsome this Summer

Dare to Be Damn Handsome this Summer

In Michigan, where there’s craft beer, there’s usually a beard. And thanks to Damn Handsome Grooming Company, where there’s a beard, you’ll find beer — in soap, shampoo, beard oil, and other grooming products designed to enhance and care for the modern man.

Using by-products from the craft brewing industry, husband-and-wife team Jarrett and Bridget Blackmon have designed a variety of personal grooming products from sustainable, natural ingredients. From soap to shampoo to body bars, as well as beard balms and beard oils, their products use spent grains or beer from Michigan breweries.

Everything is hand-crafted in small batches, full of vitamins, minerals, non-comedogenic oils and, of course, hops and beer! Scented products smell fresh and light, not heavy or purfumy. Damn Handsome means damn good grooming.

While the company started with a focus on men’s grooming, they have also introduced products everyone can enjoy, such as bar and hand soaps, Tattoo Rescue skin balm, Hoppy Mint Lip Balm, and a popular “Young & Broke, but talented coffee mug.

Damn Handsome started in Kalamazoo and has quickly spread across the country. Products can be found in stores from California to Maine and in dozens of places in between. In Michigan, you’ll find Damn Handsome products at many locations across the state:

Awesome Mitten is also proud to offer a selection of Damn Handsome products in our shop.

The wild success of packaging, marketing, and branding their own products has prompted them to offer branding and marketing services to other small business through Handsome Branding. They are also working on Damn Fancy: like Damn Handsome, but fancier.

When the humidity rises and your beard needs taming, Damn Handsome Grooming Company products will keep you looking… well, damn handsome!

I live with my boyfriend and our four kids in the Lansing area, but I grew up in Grand Rapids and my heart belongs to the UP. I spent nine summers on Mackinac Island through the Scout program, and I've camped and backpacked just about everywhere - North Manitou Island, Pictured Rocks, Porcupine Mountains, Isle Royale, and a hundred places in between. You can catch me on a trail, on a bike, on a motorcycle, in a kayak, by a bonfire, on a road trip, at a cookout, at a zoo, in the park, or knitting.
