crown X the Left Brain Group

The team at crown + extended hair fam enjoyed a cutting collective hosted by Dante Pronio. A Philly native residing in NYC, Dante joined the Left Brain Group in order to share his passion for detail. He's worked with hair legends Howard McLaren of R+Co and Bumble+bumble, the V76 men's grooming team, and Christiaan to name a few.

At crown, we had the idea to save all the profits from our "merch" sales in order to supplement our team's education. Every time you pick up a shirt, hat, enamel pin, koozie- You're directly supporting the learning that benefits your own hair! Stay up-to-date with what we create, as most items are limited runs.

Stylists new + seasoned all took something away from this class. Though laid-back + cool, Dante's brain is always mapping out the next step of each cut. Learning some of his sectioning techniques as well as variations on tool use made a huge difference. We concentrated on letting the cut speak for itself, styling with our hands + very minimal product. Bona Fide Texture Spray proved again to be a favorite, but this time as a cutting lotion.

...always looking forward to hosting our next educational event. Thank you from all of us at crown, for supporting us!

crown + New Era Cap

When New Era approached us about partnering up, it was like they were reading our minds. What better way to keep heads warm after people go short, or to keep a blow out sleek while running around daily?! Buffalo winters can be hard, so a perfect hat is essential.

New Era Cap is such a hero to small local businesses. It's rad to be able to offer our guests the same quality goods that also outfit their favorite pro sports teams. We couldn't be more thankful or proud to have created some street style together.

Pick one up at crown for $18, while supplies last.
