Stoked to be back! Seriously… I bought an iPad and a keyboard JUST to blog… and that’s no lie! Ask any of my friends and family, they can tell you that I’ve been debating for a while now if I should get a tablet or a laptop to blog. So if people really doubt my commitment to my readers, they can suck it. If only I got paid to do this, then I could write off the iPad as an expense… Maybe I can… via barbering… hmmmmmmmmm…
No love for Uppercut? You made it sound like the top of the line water based pomade, so I was wondering where does it rank against Layrite?
I never said I didn’t like it, but I noticed mine keeled over in comparison to other water-soluble pomades. But I’m sure the recipe has changed quite a bit. In terms of how it fares against Layrite: It’s in between Super Hold and the regular hold, in terms of hold that is.
Hi, new follower/reader. Just curious about your opinion of Suavecito pomade? Thicker hair, and trying to get the "Brendon Urie undercut" feel. Slicked back with enough hold to keep it there but still allow movement, slight glossy look.
I haven’t used anything from Suavecito. But if you’re looking for something that allows movement, you’re looking at the wrong end of the spectrum. It’s a water-soluble pomade that will harden a bit, which won’t allow any movement whatsoever. If you want something that moves around and has some shine, look into Layrite Super Shine. It doesn’t harden up like other water-soluble pomades, feels like a grease and shines like a grease, but washes out with just water. It’ll be your best bet for that look. Unlesss you don’t mind not having any movement…
To all the blog readers: I’m just about ready to get back on track! But, there’s one thing I’ve considered doing which will slightly change things up a bit with the website… I’m considering changing my platform from my current Wordpress (which is my primary blog,) to my secondary blog - Tumblr. It’ll be much more efficient for me to stick with just one platform (Tumblr,) as Wordpress has certain limitations cause me to not post regularly on the blog. But, I want to get some opinions from folks whether or not they think it’s a good thing or a bad thing. I mean, it’s more-so important that I get back into the groove of things and it’s ultimately my own decision, but I do enjoy getting input from the readers.
I use one from school, which is Solano (I believe that’s how it’s spelt.) Typical store bought brand blow dryers aren’t as strong or durable. Being a barber, investing in the tools you need are essentially and I plan on upgrading to a stronger model come next year.
Hey man love your blog and your skills! Im looking for some suggestions on a new pomade or two. I have thick hair thats somewhat longer on top. Ive tried Imperial original and it was just too gel like and heavy holding. Id like something like Dax High & Tight with just a bit more hold. Any suggestions? Thanks
If you dug Dax High & Tight (Awesome Hold, I’m assuming,) then go with Wave & Groom. It’s the next step up from High & Tight. Not as malleable, but you can always add a dab of H&T to soften things up a tad.
Hello, I like your reviews for all the pomades, I always look if I am looking for a new pomade. I am wondering what is the average length of hair for a good pomp height
For the front, I generally go by where it falls over the eyes. Personally, I let it fall at eyebrow length. Some people let it go down as far as their chin, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll give them a fuller pomp. It’s all about styling, and not length.
