Anchors Aweigh Hair Co. was founded in 2013 in Knoxville, Tn by Hairstylist and Army Veteran, Ben Miller. Ben spent a few years serving the 82nd Airborne Division in Fort Bragg, NC. A few weeks before his Army discharge, Ben’s only brother unexpectedly passed away.
Plans to continue the musical endeavors that he and his brother had started when they were very young were no longer possible, so Ben found himself exploring other life options, on his own. Several years and a few professions later, Ben decided to attend the TONI & GUY Academy in Carrollton, TX. That is where his passion for hairstyling was ignited and where he began learning the ropes of running a professional product line.
2012 was an amazing year for Ben, as he had a beautiful baby boy with the girl of his dreams and finally started putting his visions of a hair product company to life. After teaching himself cosmetic chemistry, web design, business bookkeeping, and marketing, in August of 2013, Ben started to sell his product. The rest, for now, is history in the making.
