Mastering Pomade: Your Styling Guide at Tommy Gun's Barbershop


What Exactly is Pomade?

Pomade is like the secret agent of hair products, working behind the scenes to give you that polished look without a fuss. It's a styling product that offers a firm hold and a glossy finish, perfect for those who want to make a statement with their hair.

Why Pomade, You Ask?

  • Sleek and Suave: Pomade isn't just about holding your hair in place; it's about creating a look that turns heads and commands attention. With its shiny finish and long-lasting hold, pomade is the go-to choice for gentlemen who want to stand out from the crowd.
  • Versatility at its Finest: Whether you're going for a classic side part, a modern pompadour, or something in between, pomade has got you covered. It's like having a personal stylist in a jar – ready to help you achieve any look you desire.
  • All-day Confidence: Unlike some other styling products that leave your hair feeling stiff and crunchy, pomade keeps your locks soft and touchable while still holding them in place. So go ahead, run your fingers through your hair – your style isn't going anywhere.
  • Barber-approved: At Tommy Gun's Barbershop, we know a thing or two about good hair. That's why we've handpicked only the best pomades from top brands like Reuzel, Uppercut, Layrite, Paul Mitchell, and American Crew for our guests. Trust us, your hair is in good hands.

Different Types of Pomade

  • High Shine: For those who want a glossy, polished finish that catches the light and exudes sophistication.
  • Medium Shine: Strikes the perfect balance between high and low shine, offering a polished appearance without being too flashy.
  • Low Shine: Perfect for a more subtle, natural look that adds definition without drawing too much attention.
  • Natural: Provides a subtle sheen that enhances the hair's natural texture and appearance, ideal for a laid-back, effortless style.
  • Matte: Ideal for those who prefer a more understated style, with a finish that looks effortlessly cool and modern.

Whether you need a strong hold to keep your style in place all day or a lighter hold for a more flexible look, there's a pomade out there for you!

How to Use Pomade Step-by-Step

Ready to rock your rebellious style with pomade? Follow these simple steps to achieve a look that screams confidence:

  • Start Fresh: Begin by ensuring your hair is squeaky clean. Make sure any residue from previous pomade applications is thoroughly washed out. This prevents greasy build-up and keeps your hair feeling fresh.
  • Measure the Magic: Scoop out a small amount of pomade, about the size of a knuckle or two, depending on your hair length and thickness. Rub the pomade between your palms to warm it up and soften it. Remember, less is more – you can always add more pomade if needed.
  • Spread the Wealth: Start at the roots and work your way to the ends of your hair. Spike your hair upwards as you go to evenly distribute the pomade and prevent clumping. Don't forget to pay extra attention to the back of your head for added hold.
  • Coat Every Strand: Once your hair is evenly coated with pomade, run your fingers through it to ensure every strand is covered from roots to ends. This ensures maximum coverage and hold.
  • Boost if Necessary: If you need extra hold or want a slicker style, feel free to add more pomade as needed. Practice makes perfect, so experiment with different amounts to find what works best for your hair type and desired look.
  • Shape and Slay: Use a comb or your fingers to style your hair into your desired look. Whether you're going for a classic pompadour or a messy, textured look, pomade gives you the flexibility to create any style you desire.
