The daily act of shaving needn't cause unnecessary pain nor consume unnecessary time—provided you call in the Barber Brigade, a line of shaving products offered by Sharps. To ensure that word of these products spread beyond those places marked by a candy-striped pole, the hygiene-obsessed company called on Seattle-based agency Wexley School for Girls to create a virtual barbershop stocked with everything a man needs to arrive at shaving nirvana.
