Video: Todd Greene ’89 on Perseverance and Shaved Heads (Laughing Squid)

headbladelogo-BN80After creating and abandoning several prototypes, HeadBlade designer Todd Greene ’89 took his team to Venice Beach to promote and sell his first batch of the innovative final product. The HeadBlade is a razor specifically designed for shaving heads, whose design keeps the hand close to the head for a more intuitive close shave. Greene ambitiously expected that he would sell the 500 HeadBlades he had brought with him on that first day. He sold eight. But he didn’t give up – now, a sample of his product is stored in the permanent collection of New York City’s Museum of Modern Art. See how Greene’s work ethic led him to success.
