Meet the man behind the cuts. The man they call the Pig barber, our Uppercut Deluxe global brand ambassador, Mr. Dane Hesse. Based out of Costa Mesa, California, Dane owns and runs The Eagle and Pig Barbershop. After barbering for a while he decided to open his own shop which was aptly named for very precise reasons, the Eagle being for America and the pig having a multitude of sentimental meanings.
He rides pig style surfboards, when he was going to barber school he found a glow in the dark pig by his car and its been hanging on his rear view mirror ever since and lastly he explains that "dudes can be pigs". He needed a range of products that would cater for a wide variety of hair styles and had heard about Uppercut Deluxe through a friend and decided to make contact. After finding out more about his interests in the Californian surfing lifestyle, tattoos and classic cars it was clear he was to be part of the Uppercut Deluxe family and the rest is hair history.
With a unique cutting technique which captures the true essence of 1950's style, Dane not only talks the talk but he walks the walk. His favourite cuts are high and tight making sure to leave plenty on top, when it comes to barbers he's the cream of the crop.
