  1. Electric Chair Education with Ron Talley
    Electric Chair Education with Ron Talley
    Earlier this week we did an education with Ron Talley at Electric Chair Salon in Ocean Beach, Ca. Electric Chair has a cool, eclectic vibe with loads of art hanging on the walls. It has a distinct artsy atmosphere that you can feel right when you walk through the door. The team there was very excited to have us, and they were eager to hear what our guy Ron Talley had to say.  Ron started off by giving some background info on the brand and talking about how he became involved with Uppercut Deluxe. Basically, one day he slid into Shane Nesbitt’s DMs and the rest is history (you can ask him yourself for the full story). Ron mentioned how he was drawn to Uppercut because they offered a full range of products for everything he needed as a professional. He transitioned into the demonstration where he was going to be showing the class how to cut a Side part with a low skin fade. One thing that Ron is always very clear about when he educates is that there is no one “right” w

  7. Freshwater's Finest
    Freshwater's Finest
    Freshwater is one of Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Duke Kahanamoku held his first Australian surf demonstration at Freshwater Beach, so the locals like to claim that Freshwater is home to Australian Surfing. It's because of this historic event and the even bigger claim that you could say that surfing runs through the local’s veins. There is a fair bit of truth about that; one visit to Freshwater and you’ll see that the beach is what really brings the community together. Uppercut Deluxe Ambassador, Pat Capocci, is one talented dude. You probably know him best for his music or maybe his surfing. A few moons ago Pat was a sign writer, but Pat decided to put down his paintbrush and pick up a set of scissors. Barbering came pretty natural to Pat and after paying his dues, he opened up his own shop – Flying Tiger Barbershop. Flying Tiger Barbershop has all the characteristics of a classic barbershop; sharp cuts, good tunes and most importantly
