OUR STORY

About Us

ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO, AS A SINGLE MAN, I WAS SET TO GO ON A DATE WITH ONE PROBLE –  BODY HAIR.

While I’m not the hairiest guy, the constant regrowth of chest and back hair is not only unattractive but also uncomfortable. As I was driving down Newport BLVD. I pulled into the first hair salon I saw. I was greeted by Tom. Tom is from the Philippines and was super friendly and welcoming guy. As he was cutting my hair, he was explaining the other services offered in his salon. To be frank, the place was a total shithole, and I couldn’t imagine what else they could possibly do other than cut hair, but i was intrigued, nonetheless. He showed me a room in the back where the Esthetician was set up. The room consisted of a massage table, her Esthetician lamp instruments, etc…. So that is when I had the bright idea to ask Tom if he would shave my back using his clippers.

He said no problem. I then took my shirt off, lay on the take face down in my jeans and off we went. He put a little powder on my back and started grooming me. He did such a great job I turned over and had him do my chest as well. 

This little salon turned out to be the best find for so many reasons. For years I have had to ask my wife, girlfriends, roommates, and friends to shave my back and who the hell wants to do that? Fast forward 15 years later all these devices have come on the market and make it easier for you to manscape your body but let’s be honest- you take your best shot but grooming yourself is next to impossible. You can’t see all the spots you missed and you end up scratching your skin in hard to reach places and it never turns out like Tom’s groom job. 

The idea of Gorilla Grooming came when I was tired of walking around patchy or half-shaved for weeks on end or waiting for my wife Christina to get to my back. She hates hair and hates shaving my back. So here we are. Gorilla Grooming discrete, and clean will make everyone around you happy that they don’t have to touch your hairy body again. We hope you enjoy your experience.
