How would you describe your shop’s vibe?

Handsome Factory barber shop is a proper old school barber shop.  We’ve got neighbourhood vibes with good music & good cuts.  We’re like one big family.  It’s a good place to chill and come by for a drink. 

What’s the favourite Uppercut Deluxe products?

Deluxe, Matte Pomade, Easy Hold. The Everyday Shampoo is great too

Tell us something we don’t know about Uppercut Deluxe products?

We always suggest storing it in a dry place.  Not the bathroom because the temperature and humidity can change the texture. Using a hair dryer on cool right after you’ve styled the hair with Pomade can help give it a stronger hold

What’s the best advice for clients before walking in?

Screen shot some styles on your phone to show us when you come in the shop and make sure you communicate well with your barber what you want. It’s good to have an idea of what you want before you come in but if you don’t it’s ok too. You can get some suggestions from our barbers while you have a cold beer. 

Who is the shop’s biggest barbering influence?

Jon Roth from Crow’s Nest Barber Shop.... He’s like our godfather!
