Introducing Samson’s Haircare Small Batch, Artisanal Men’s Hair and Beard Range

Welcome to Samson’s Haircare, an artisanal men’s hair and beard care range, founded in 2019 by barber Jake Hamlet and relationship manager, Adam Muncy. Like many pioneers in the beauty industry, Jake and Adam hand-batched their first product in a basement using a modified rice cooker. After much experimentation and evolution, this grassroots company has become much more than just a range of hair and beard care products but rather, it has become an extension of who they are.

As the son of a lineman and veteran, Jake and Adam take great pride in Samson’s Haircare, their mission, the formulas and creating this range themselves. With no outsourcing or backdoor chemist, everything is produced on site from start to finish using only the finest, quality ingredients. Samson’s isn’t a conglomerate of marketing professionals and PhD chemists; it is the result 2 hair obsessed guys focused on delivering a better product to the beauty community.

Some of Samson’s top products include:

This exceptional pomade won’t let you down. Endurance is what makes us different from everyone else on the market. Sunup to sundown, Samson’s will hold your hair in place. It is small batch goodness and Midwest made! Delivers all day hold and natural shine.

Beard Balm (2 oz. / $17.00) – This sought-after beard balm is specifically designed to nourish, soften, and tame beards so you or your clients will feel comfortable and distinguished. Looking like a caveman is not a requirement for having a beard.

Foster the Curl (6 oz. / $26.00) – As business owners, Jake and Adam felt very frustrated that some of their products could not serve families. Both men are foster parents of children with textured hair. Foster the Curl is a light hold crème that delivers low shine and holds curls all day while nourishing hair.

Also available are The Bench Leg ShampooConditioner, Solid Cologne, and Volumizing Matte Powder.

For these two entrepreneurial gentlemen, it is not only about sharing their barbering passion and creating an exceptional range of men’s products, but it’s also about sharing their passion and love for the foster care community. Currently, there are more than 400,00 children in the foster care system in the US. To help battle those numbers, a portion of proceeds from Foster the Curl will go towards supporting foster youth in achieving safety, permanence, and well-being.

Largely embedded in the foster care community, Jake and Adam strive to do everything with good intent and purpose, and their character is built within their hard work and dedication to delivering the best hair care products possible.
