Fresh off the Boston Red Sox five-game World Series victory over the LA Dodgers, Gillette
helped Series MVP Steve Pearce shed his good luck scruff by shaving off his rugged beard at the Gillette World Shaving Headquarters during a champion’s victory shave to benefit Boys & Girls Club of Boston. Gillette marked the ceremonial shave with a $50,000 donation to the organization. During the past five years, some of Boston’s most beloved sports stars have become known nationwide for their wild looks and superstitious playoff beards, which start to appear as division pennants are claimed and bigger showdowns near. Following this year’s triumphant win, Pearce was ready for a clean start with an eye toward 2019. He shaved off his beard with a custom-made 3D-printed razor from Gillette’s new Razor Maker project.
