Pomade (pronounced “Pom-Aide”) is a greasy and waxy substance that is used to style hair. Pomade makes hair look slick, neat and shiny and is intended to hold styles such as slickbacks and pompadours. . Unlike hair sprays and gels, pomade does not dry rock hard, and often takes several washes to remove (if speaking about a wax based product). Now their are a host of water-based pomades on the market which give you the hold of a wax but the wash out properties of a standard gel (meaning it washes out clean with water). Different hair styles and textures call for different types and holds of pomade. Only your barber knows for sure which will be best for YOUR hair, so don’t hesitate to ask next time your in the shop for a cleanup.

The start to another six days of somewhat professional non BS barbering is upon us. Three barbers in everyday to get you looking your best. Good doesn’t come fast and doing something fast usually isn’t good, so give yourself a hour or so when ya come in for a trim.
