How did you come up with the name Elephant In The Room? The meaning of the Elephant In The Room is two fold.
1st – Most men have never experienced what it is like to have their look both styled and maintained by a grooming professional. At Elephant In The Room we believe hair is an accessory to style and that you cannot have great style without great grooming.
2nd – At the Elephant In The Room we want to make a difference. Like many people we noticed the the “Elephant In The Room” in today’s society is the break down of the traditional family. We are now raising a fatherless generation of men and boys. Many boys today are being raised without the presence of a strong role model in their lives which is why we started the It Starts With One Campaign. For every haircut that we provide we donate $1.00 organizations that mentor men and boys throughout the communities we serve.

Why was Elephant In the Room Men’s Grooming Lounge created? The Elephant in the Room refers to lack of quality experience-based grooming service providers for men and the lack of authentic mentorship for America’s young boys and men. At the Elephant in the Room we strive to provide a solution to both of these.
