The barbers share their product preferences with us
On hair products for men…
Adam Chan: ‘For Asian men who usually have hair that’s both straight and stiff, we recommend using a strong water-based pomade – it helps to flatten down any unwanted spikes and also creates a nice slicked-back look. When using it, never dry your hair completely before application. Doing so will dramatically alter the pomade’s effectiveness and durability, meaning your hairstyle won’t last as long.
In terms of products, we love using Uppercut Deluxe from Australia and Prospectors from the United States. Both have good pomade and aftershave products, with the latter’s products also containing the nourishment of natural hemp oil.’
Roar Guns: ‘For guys who want to look smart but have a more casual style, we recommend using evo Texture Paste, which gives a strong texture hold and an extremely matte finish. For guys who want a more formal, business-friendly look, we recommend using evo’s Construction Cream, which gives a shiny effect and a malleable hold for a perfect day-long style.’
