OG Barber Game Promotions was established in April 2015. The OG stands for Original Givers. This is a dream turned reality through hard work with a genuine concern for the community’s grooming needs.

Founder of the company, Byron Green, has been serving the greater Houston area with 18 years of experience in barbering, with hopes of one day aiding in the grooming needs of the less fortunate, and with that idea; OG Barber Game Promotions was born.

Aaron Watts has also been a substantial factor throughout this movement. Since establishing the brand in 2015, Byron and Aaron have participated in numerous non-profit events delivering fine men’s grooming in Houston and Pearland. HPD, KIPP High School (Sunnyside), and many others have become affiliated with the organization since it has cemented itself in the reputation of helping others. Back-to-school, holidays, and many other special moments are when OG steps in to lend a hand.

We have worked hard to try to feed a genuine need of the community that we saw was so severely lacking, this is why the Houston Hair Battle is such an important annual event to us. It not only represents talent in the industry on so many levels, but it also raises funds to donate to the Houston Urban League.
