What’s your most popular cut at the moment?

We always seem to get a lot of variety through the shop. Probably something that has a low zero fade or tapered to a zero with a relaxed variation on top. Like a natural slick back, loose side part or textured crop.

Tell us something we don’t know about Uppercut Deluxe products?

Our research shows that on average you will surf at least twice as good if you carry your board to the beach with a fresh cut finished off with Uppercut.

What’s your favourite uppercut deluxe products?

Easy Hold and Deluxe Pomade.

Who is your favourite artist to spin in the shop?

I could never pick just one. The new Anderson Paak, Kevin Morby and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have been getting lots of spins.

What product to use the most of?

Matte Pomade

Why did you get into barbering?

Firstly, because of the lack of a good haircut to be found anywhere at the time. But the more I got into it I saw Barbering as a skill which I could roll a bunch of other elements around. I wanted to offer a service which I could use to create community, an environment, a lifestyle and ultimately, I wanted to make people look and feel good about themselves.

What’s the best tip for someone visiting your area?

Pray for waves. Nowhere better in the world when the points at Noosa are on. Come get a haircut when the tides high then go post up at the beach, surf your brains out, eat, drink and get Massimo’s!
