Located in Richmond, VA, a husband and wife team established Wolfgang Beard Co. in the Fall of 2016. After searching for years for the right product to use on his own beard (some products were filled with chemicals, some didn’t offer enough styling hold, and others either dried his skin out or clogged his pores), Mike researched natural ingredients and tinkered with different recipes until he perfected a product that promoted everything he wanted for his own beard. He realized that he had not only found an all-natural, nourishing solution to his own beard, which also happened to be a fun hobby, but he was quickly gaining compliments and popularity in the bearded community, accepting order requests from friends, family, and co-workers. Knowing her husband's amazing talent and passion for this type of craft, Mike’s wife, Kristy, worked hard at beginning to organize a business and marketing plan for all of the different products they were experimenting with.
It was during the start of their business idea in the Spring of 2016 when Mike quickly fell severely ill, which led to numerous hospital stays and the discovery of kidney cancer. Over 7 months of emotional and financial devastation, successful surgeries, and continued medical treatments, this led to the determination of beginning their journey to start their own business.
When Mike is not working full-time as a conductor for Amtrak, he is crafting all of our grooming products and woodworking. After the medical scare, Kristy quickly realized the precious time and importance of her family and resigned her full-time corporate position to spend time with her husband, their now 5 year old little boy, and to market their small business. They are over the moon to announce their arrival of baby boy #2 this past December!
Today, Wolfgang Beard Co. proudly offers natural grooming products in a variety of scents, as well as our beautiful, handcrafted wooden combs. We strive to give back to our local community through events, donations, and charities. Follow us on social media for announcements!
