Drawing inspiration from the timeless styles of the 1950s, Australian brand Uppercut Deluxe favours a simple, traditional approach to hairstyling – but with a distinctly modern attitude.
Made from high quality ingredients, formulated, tried and tested by barbers, Uppercut Deluxe is perfect for the contemporary gent who is looking for a great product, but without the frivolity associated with their salon brand competitors.
Founded by Luke Newman and Steve Purcel, Uppercut Deluxe is built on the spirit of barbering; the tradition and the culture. The two are barbers by trade and started Uppercut as a response to the mass of mediocre hair products that they felt didn’t suit the atmosphere of their shop – products they felt were over-feminised and made for “The man’s wife rather than the man”.
A year of fevered work with their chemist led to the creation of their first product: the Deluxe Pomade. The brand have since expanded their range of styling products to include clays and waxes, as well as diversifying into shaving creams and shampoos.
The range of styling products are perfect for creating that dapper ‘slicked back’ look, or for helping you style the classic Rockabilly pompadour – the brand seems to be made for the retro-inspired cuts that are bang on trend right now.
Overall, the combination of high quality products and straight forward attitude make Uppercut Deluxe a worthwhile addition to your current grooming cabinet.
