Hue For Everyman: The Review

Product and Purpose

When I speak to people about pomades, the general consensus is that brands vary based on it’s designed purpose.   In other words, if you have 4 different brands,  they are usually formulated with particular hairstyles or hair-types in mind.  Despite the segmented nature of the hair care and skin market; Hue For Everyman is serving the needs of many,  with one premium pomade.

Up until now, no pomade brand has ever designed one product to serve the needs of Africans, Asians, Latins and Middle Easterns at the same time. Hue For Everyman is changing the hair market while addressing needs of many.

Hue’s formula of all natural ingredients, is as unique as it’s purpose. While most pomades are comprised of mostly artificial ingredients, Hue’s formula consist of all natural ingredients that protects the quality of hair.  No Silicones, No Parabens, and No Petroleum.  This formula is comprised of mango, shea butter, argon oil, and primrose oil all ingredients promote optimal hydration and conditioning.

Behind the Chair Review

The first thing you notice is obviously the packaging, as a premium product it definitely looks the part. Next, what you notice is the light yet noticable fragrance, it is sure to compliment any cologne you or client  may choose. This pomade itself is not thick or stiff, which isn’t the case with many pomades. This pomade can be effortlessly scooped up and be applied in the hair with a comb. When you comb or brush it through the hair, you’ll find that it applies evenly, quickly and easily without any heavy clumps. What makes it’s even better is that it washes off of your hands effortlessly.

After taking a few weeks to sample the product along with few customers and barbers, the feed back is definitely positive. So positive, that I almost got jacked for my own sample. That says something.  This isn’t a single purpose pomade, it is a conditioner that stand up to a long day of demands and even holds well in unrelenting Florida humidity.  This product can last for days in wave-length hair cut or comb-over hairstyles. It washes out easily and doesn’t strip the hair of moisture or nutrients.  ByBarbers4Barbers strong recommends this product..

2013 Orlando Premiere Beauty Expo: Recap

http://bybarbers4barbers.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/img_5776.jpg

2013 Premiere Orlando Beauty Show

After much anticipation over the years, I finally made it to the 2013 Premiere Expo in Orlando, Fl.  It is without a doubt one of the largest expos that one can attend in any industry.   With hundreds of vendors and thousand of patrons in attendence from all over the country, this event is something to see.  Every isle was as packed as a Midtown Manhattan street. Everyone was there with rolling suitcases and bags of goodies. The bargains alone, are reason enough to make this trip.  This annual event is held at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), the second largest convention center in the U.S.,  only second to the McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. The who’s who of the beauty and barbering industry make it a point to come to this huge event.

Even though this was event was primarily a beauty show, there were plenty of  exhibits, events and vendors to keep us interested. All of the clipper manufactures had their showcase barbers leading classes, seminars and demonstrations. In addition, plenty of our favorite vendors were in attendance like Da Gauge, Major League Barbers, HQ Elements, Bookyourbarber.com and many many more.

Being able to see all of the latest clippers from every manufacturer,  under one roof, was  one of  my favorite parts of the event. I got to ask all of the questions,  a clipper geek like myself could think of. All of the representatives from Andis, Oster, Babyliss Pro, and Wahl, had very knowledgable and enthusiastic representatives. Lithium Ion powered cordless clippers and trimmers is a  upcoming trend among the manufacturers. Many of these lithium powered clippers are light, ergonomic and are as powerful as traditional clippers.  It was a pleasant surprise. There will be some welcomed competition among the Big 4 soon.

The best part of the show was meeting other barbers, who in many ways, were willing to sacrifice their time at the shop to attend. Networking among other barbers who in addition to cutting hair, are also interested in expanding their interest to beyond the barber chair. I’m definitely planning to travel to a few shows in the near future.

Barber Profile: Lawrence The barber

Whenever we have downtime in our barbershop, we love to browse Instagram. One of boys at the shop,  put me on to a barber who I thought only customizes and paints Andis Masters Clippers.  When you look a little deeper, you realize that not only is this guy an awesome barber, but he also is very much into the history and culture of barbering. He collects all sort of antique clippers, documents like barber union licenses ( I bet you didn’t know they existed), many figurines, and countless artifacts.   Every now and then I find a topic,  that reminds me of why I started this blog in the first place.  Something that gets me excited. Something that draws my interest. Most of all, something that warrants a post on bb4b. This is definitely worth checking out.
