The story of Lucky Tiger has been handed down from generation to generation and through the years this tale grew. As it is now told, the Lucky Tiger legend began in the 1920’s, in Kansas City, Missouri, in the basement of Benjamin Clarke, an amateur scientist and one heck of a great barber! Ben created a tonic for the hair and scalp that was different and better than any other product in his day and called it “Lucky Tiger Tonic.” Everyone who visited Ben’s Barbershop got the royal treatment – a shave, a haircut and a generous splash of Lucky Tiger Tonic. As the story goes, Ben began to sell the tonic out of his shop, but it was needed beyond Missouri… In 1935, in Kansas City, Missouri, Lucky Tiger was trademarked and a classic American brand was officially born. As Lucky Tiger’s popularity and product reputation spread, Barbers across America began using and selling the entire range of Lucky Tiger products: shaving creams, mustache waxes, shampoos, hair dressings, hair tonics, hair waxes, face cleansers, skin astringents, face lotions, cleansing masks, acne preparations and tooth whitening powders. By the time the 1950’s rock ‘n rolled around, Lucky Tiger became the most popular brand of men’s grooming and barbershop products in America. The 1950’s and early 60’s were a great time for Lucky Tiger. But in 1964, a visit from four guys from Liverpool England changed pop culture and young America overnight. When the Beatles hit our shores and the hippie movement followed, men’s hairstyles and the Barber industry were forever changed – Lucky Tiger came upon some less than lucky times. Despite lean times and radical changes in men’s fashions and tastes, Lucky Tiger maintained a fierce and loyal following in the barbershop industry.
With today’s explosion in men’s grooming, Lucky Tiger has a collection of grooming products for men that remain true to Lucky Tiger’s legacy and all American, masculine heritage. Lucky Tiger was there for your Great Grandfather, your Grandfather and father, and now Lucky Tiger is here for you!
