The rest is history.

Time with Uppercut Deluxe:
Since early 2014
Throughout his apprenticeship Shane worked predominantly with an African American clientele, so course hair fades soon became a specialty. Shane’s skill and technical style soon extended across full range of traditional cuts, and he now professes to locve cutting anything classic.
Why Uppercut Deluxe?
Shane was introduced to the brand through friends in the UK who encouraged him to give the product a try. He did and loved the range. Equally as important to Shane was the lifestyle element of the brand which closely mirrored his lifestyle and passions. A short time after discovering Uppercut Deluxe, Shane was approached by Dane Hesse (Aka Pig Barber) who contacted him about being a Global Brand ambassador. The choice for Shane was an easy one to make.
