  1. Uppercut Deluxe Welcome James Reichwein
    Uppercut Deluxe Welcome James Reichwein
    James Reichwein, Aka ‘Jimmy the Tulip’, is a barber and Co-owner of Cut Throat Amsterdam and Good Vibes Only in Ibiza, and the newest member of the Uppercut Deluxe Barber Ambassador family. Hailing from Christchurch, New Zealand Jimmy was an aspiring professional footballer before he discovered his love of the barbering trade and set up shop in his hometown.  He made the move to Amsterdam in 2011 when his shop was flattened by one of Christchurch’s notorious earthquakes. With nine years barbering experience under his belt, and a Dutch passport in hand, Jimmy set about looking for a job in an established barbershop but soon realised there were very few to choose from. So in true entrepreneurial spirit, he started the original Cut Throat Amsterdam - a four chair premises that they quickly outgrew. Fast forward a few y

  3. Jon Roth
    Jon Roth
    Jon Roth hails from Ontario, and is the founder of Crows Nest Barbershops, which boasts 5 locations across Canada. Crows Nest Barbershops aren’t any normal Barbershop chain though. Each shop has its own individual personality and story, all as varied as the neighbourhood they are in and the staff that work there – which was completely intentional. From the outset, Jon wanted to create a place that was more than just a barbershop, and a part of the community. Crows Nest Barbershop was born in a basement, in Kensington, Toronto. Jon, needed a place to practise his craft but couldn’t find the place to do it – so he made one. From there, the Crows Nest family began to grow and eventually they needed a new location. The vision for Jon and the Crows Nest team was always clear – take their appr

    For those who Groom and Zoom.
    For those who Groom and Zoom: An Ambassador Shoot with Uppercut Deluxe. What happens when you put some of the raddest, nicest and most down to earth guys we’ve ever met in a room together with a camera? This. We are so stoked to introduce this little clip, produced for all the Groomers and Zoomers out there. If you haven’t already met them, meet Scotty, Turk, Chase, Taylor, Big Scott, Dane, JJ and Eric – otherwise known as the USA contingent of the Uppercut Deluxe family. Each one of these guys is a big part of what we do and each one rocks their own signature style. This clip was filmed one sunny day a few weeks back in and around the SoCal area – between Dane’s shop (Eagle & Pig) in Costa Mesa, the Joker Bowl and along Pacific Coast Highway to San Onofre. We had no real plan for how the day would turn out – we just wanted to get all the guys together in one place, and try capture them doing what they do best – barbering, biking, skati

  5. Uppercut Deluxe Welcomes TJ Guzzardi
    Uppercut Deluxe Welcomes TJ Guzzardi
    We’d like to welcome our first official lifestyle ambassador for 2017… TJ Guzzardi! For anyone not already familiar with him; TJ is a Melbourne-based artist. His craft? Traditional sign writing (think barbershop signs from the 1950s). Along with his wife L’Amour (a burlesque dancer and costume designer) and two kids, TJ spends most of his time at his Tullamarine studio, where he creates custom designed lettering and hand painted vintage-style signs for all kinds of clients - cafes, bars, tattoo parlours and, of course, barbershops. TJ first picked up a brush at 15, after being inspired by the old-time lifestyle of his hotrod-loving family. Since then, TJ has worked tirelessly to master his craft, and he is now well known for his unique designs, artistic talent and com

    Uppercut Deluxe Welcomes Jim Buster Culling
    Uppercut Deluxe is proud to introduce our first UK-based lifestyle ambassador Jim 'Buster' Culling. Jim is a UK native, born in the north of London in the early 90’s. A mechanic by trade, you could say he’s a hard-working blue collar Brit (Which he is) , but Jim’s true persona reflects some very different influences to your standard English ‘Lad’. His father; a mechanic and tire fitter who worked with the British Formula 3000, raised Jim on U.S Motoring movie classics like ‘The Wild One’, and ‘Two Lane Black Top’. Jim Recalls the moment his parents played him the Bruce Springsteen song ‘Racing in The Streets’ as the exact moment in time he knew he wanted to spin wrenches and tires for life.

  9. Catching up with Pat Capocci
    Catching up with Pat Capocci
    Uppercut Deluxe recently caught up with long-time friend and Ambassador, Pat Capocci. If Pat isn’t cutting at his barbershop in Freshwater, NSW, or surfing on Sydney’s northern breaks, he’s touring and performing at some of Australia’s most iconic music venues. Pat has a musical style all of his own – well worth a look if he’s playing near you. He combines country, blues, roots, swing and jazz to create a genre all of his own. His unique singing style, combined with his classic look provides a contrast and edge which is hard to come by, making him one of the hottest properties in the southern hemisphere. Though his talents don’t stop with music. Pat first picked up the shears and scissors a few years ago and has very quickly established himself as a talented barber. In 2017 he opened up his very own shop,

  10. Uppercut Deluxe take on Noosa Festival of Surfing
    Uppercut Deluxe take on Noosa Festival of Surfing
    The Uppercut Deluxe Crew made up of Lifestyle Ambassador Matt Chojnacki, local shredder Sam Crookshanks plus father son team Michael and Kaimana Takayama hit the points of Noosa for the annual Festival of Surfing. Noosa is located on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, home to ample waves, endless supplies of coffee and a few rad little hangouts. Huey was nice enough to provide pumping waves for the first few days, but he proves to be a fickle beast. By the finals all the swell had disappeared, and the competitors were stuck grovelling 1 footers. The team put in a valiant effort and waved the flag high. Needless to say, fun was had by all. Until ne

  11. Scotty Stopnik at Salton Sea
    Scotty Stopnik at Salton Sea
    Pulling Scotty Stopnik out of the garage can be a hard task. After a few years working with the man, we’ve started to slow figure out what makes him tick. Being a family man through and through, the quickest way to get him away from work are his beautiful wife and kids. Unfortunately for us, we don’t always have the same pull as them. The second quickest way is another one which is out of our control, good waves. Scotty is always down for a surf, and there is no doubt when the waves are on he is the first in the water. Mother nature isn’t always on our side and the ocean being a fickle beast, it’s tough to plan ahead for this one. Though, the other card up our sleeve is always a winner. Asking Scotty to come for a ride is one way we can always pull him out of Cycle Zombies HQ. On this particular occasion we asked fellow Ambassador JJ Wessels along to document Scot
