How would you describe your shop’s vibe?
Loud music with neighbourhood friendly boys and girls.
What’s your most popular cut at the moment?
Generally something faded at the back and sides, textured and longish at the top so it’s versatile
What’s your favourite Uppercut Deluxe products?
Matte Pomade, Beard Balm and the handy Quiff roller
What product do you use the most of?
Currently it’s Styling Powder. We love to see our clients face light up with amazement when they see how easy it is to use to achieve the results they’ve always wanted.
What’s your favourite style to cut?
Definitely a loose slick back because even in midday when it’s super hot and humid here, the “imperfection” in the hair still looks perfect somehow, looking handsome helps obviously!
Who is your biggest barbering influence?
If it’s just one person, it’s got to be Miguel Guttierez aka Nomad Barber; he brought together the barbering community globally and sparked lots of positivity in the old, new, and upcoming barbers and shops.
Why did you get into barbering?
I started cutting hair for some friends, liked it, loved it, and here we are now. The memories and stories we share with our clients are priceless!
