Out of necessity, he developed one of the first grooming brands designed specifically for men – defying the odds and leaving his own mark on the grooming industry. At the core of Baxter Finley’s mission, was a drive to create products that could help men embrace their own perfection and live life true.

With a disruptive digital first strategy and omni-channel distribution model, Baxter of California is designed for the millennial man and the women who buy for them.
