We ranked this brand at #5 in our TOP 10 HAIRSTYLING BRANDS FOR MEN listed below.
Uppercut pomades are designed to give you high-quality, salon-style results with minimal effort.” When I was asked to review this hair care line, it didn’t take me long to say yes. I’m always looking for ways to freshen up my look and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. What better way than by trying out some of their best selling products?
Uppercut Deluxe Pomade – 100g
Originally from Australia this brown coloured Uppercut Deluxe Pomade has a coconut like fragrance and is smooth to touch and apply to the hair. Advertised as a strong holding product you will expect this product to last all day. Most ideal for those with straight and longer hair styles, keeping it moisturised. This will make it easier to manage. The Deluxe Pomade is priced at £17 for a 100g tin, there are certainly better quality professional pomade products out there if you have a bigger budget to invest.
Uppercut Deluxe Easy Hold – 90g
An unusual leather and vanilla scent makes this hair product very manly. Lightwieight creamy consistency, unlike a regular pomade, but easy to break up and emulsify. The hold might not be the selling point on this product so would avoid it if you are looking for a product that can hold your hair in place exactly where you want it. Better on straight hair that doesn’t need much love other than a bit of texture. If your hair type is not straight, expect this product to be a bit of a flop.
Uppercut Deluxe Featherweight – 70g
As you guys will be able to guess, the Uppercut Deluxe Featherweight is supposed to be a lighter pomade product. If long lasting hold is important jump up to the original Pomade. Similar to the Easy Hold, this product is white in colour but don’t expect an easy application. This stuff is like glue and will get loads of tugging and pulling when apply to dry hair.
Uppercut Deluxe Matt Pomade – 100g
The Deluxe Matt Pomade is 100g tin and the product claims to have a medium strength hold. Ideal if you’re looking for a matte look but not fixed on a hard setting finish this could be ideal for you. Suited to a diverse range of hair types and styles, including modern, classic looks. This water based matt pomade is good and easy to use but I’d recommend considering alternative matte products from higher ranking brands for value for money and more of a professional finished style.
Uppercut Deluxe Clay – 60g
This minty hair clay will keep you smelling fresh. With a harder consistency up against most hair clays on the market, this Uppercut Deluxe Clay needs a bit of a warm up for an easy application. Consider this product if you have what you would call a messy or modern hair style.
The hold is strong but reworkable and you can expect some difficulty in washing it out. The finish is a dry, matt look. Honestly I would ignore this clay due to the benefits and the value on offer from the Matt Pomade above.
Uppercut Powder – 20g
Is it the best matte product out there? No. And at £14 a tin it’s not the most cost effective hair styling powder either. As many of you will already know i’m not the biggest fan of hair powders, as you waste a lot (shoulders and floor) and many styling waxes/cements/shapers and fibres actually a much more effective solution at better value.
