How would you describe your shop’s vibe?
Very relaxed friendly vibe in the shop. W wanted to create a place that everyone would feel welcome. We have a sausage dog and a pug running around which also keeps clients amused while they wait. Failing that there’s beer and an Xbox!
What’s your most popular cut at the moment?
Skin fade, textured crop
What’s your favourite Uppercut Deluxe products?
It’s got to be Deluxe Pomade, purely based on smell and hold
What product do you use the most of?
Would have to be Matte Pomade. It’s perfect for short textured looks and is a great seller.
What’s the best tip for someone visiting your area?
We recently just had a movement called nu art in Aberdeen where artists from all over the world create massive murals on our buildings. Its pretty incredible to see.
What the best advice for your client before walking in?
Come in with an open mind. We hope you like dogs.
