    How to Style: Classic Slick Back
    The Slick Back is a well-aged classic. The Classic Slick Back has been the style of the choice for the refined gentleman since the 40’s, when every bad-boy Hollywood star rocked one.

A comb is a must when styling a Slick Back, and there’s no product better for this classic than Deluxe Pomade. This product is the natural partner of the slick back as it offers the shine and hold required for the style to hold fast and shine strong throughout the day.

  11. Loose Textured Undercut - How To Cut
    Loose Textured Undercut - How To Cut
    A quick google search into the origins of the Undercut will suggest that this style in its earliest form, was worn by the 'lower class' of the 1920's era.  The suggestion is that those with very little money could not afford a barber with the skills to blend in the sides of the haircut... And while this may (or may not) have been true at the time, the reality of the modern day Undercut is very different. The Undercut has enjoyed a steady resurgence in recent years, and its revival can largely be attributed to the hit TV series 'Peaky Blinders'.  But the heavy disconnect worn by Tommy Shelby and his henchmen is certainly not for everybody.  As a result we've seen an abundance of modern and more-wearable variations of the Undercut develop. James Reichwein of Cut Throat Amsterdam is no stranger to the Undercut in its various forms.  In this 'How To' Video James demonstrates the art of cutting a modern look -Loose Textured Undercut which he styles with Easy Hold.
