Uppercut Deluxe Pomade

A versatile pomade that holds throughout the day, is water-based and rinses out easily. The formula provides a super strong level of hold and high shine. This stuff smells amazing and is great for styling classic wet looks like pompadours, side parts and slick backs.

Layrite Cement Clay

This cement is an extremely high hold clay that delivers all day day control for structured dry or messy looks. It is reworkable long after application and is water based for an easy rinse out. The puck weighs in at 120 grams which is a chunky sized jar. Good value when compared to some of the other styling products.

American Crew Texture Foam

This one was previously featured in the Men’s Health Grooming Awards and is comprised of specialised proteins that help strengthen the hair and fixative polymers that add volume. It is a powerful way to manipulate volume, control and texture. It is kind of like mousse but on steroids.

Uppercut Deluxe Styling Powder

This has quickly become one of our go-to’s for modern, textured styles. It quickly adds texture, volume and control with a natural, matte finish. It is perfect for styling messy quiffs and longer looks and it really excels in thin or fine hair.

Proraso Single Blade Series Beard Oil

There are three different scents to choose from however the Wood and Spice variety is our best seller in the beard oil department. We recommend this oil for all beard types and it will keep your beard soft, tamed and looking good.
