Waves are a classic hairstyle, mainly characterized by the unique wave pattern around the head. If you’re new to the wave game, locking in your routine can be the biggest challenge. Frequent brushing is a must to train the tight curls to flatten out and form a unique ‘wave’ pattern. This Faded Waves cut by Uppercut Deluxe Ambassador Shane Nesbitt pairs a high and tight fade with a short, cropped cut on top to enhance the waves.
An absolute must for barbers struggling to perfect this cut is “NEVER CUT THE TOP AGAINST THE GRAIN!” Go with the flow and never cut against the grain to enhance the waves instead of cutting them off.
If you’re chasing this cut yourself, start with a good wave routine and trust the process. Chat to your barber for tips on waves if you’re only just getting into the game. Once you have your waves locked in head to your trusted barber for a tune up that will enhance your waves without undoing your hard work.
The right product is key to consistently nailing your styling routine. A secret of the pros is Deluxe Pomade and Monster Hold to lay down waves, a go to of Shane’s for years now that has picked up a lot of momentum in the industry. If you’re needing a product with heavy hold to tame difficult hair, Monster Hold will be your go to. A traditional, wax-based pomade, a little goes a long way. Start by applying a small amount and adding more as needed for a slick, clean wave pattern. If you’re looking for a more modern, easy to wash out approach Deluxe Pomade will be your go to. Our fan favourite water-based pomade is easy to apply and comes out easily with a quick wash.
About Monster Hold
Monster Hold is a traditional wax-based Pomade, that remains reworkable throughout the day.
This is an extra powerful, sweat resistant wax that was created especially for traditional or bolder styles that require a little extra hold. This product holds with weight, making it perfect to control your style all day long.
Being wax based, Monster Hold won't set, making it perfect for anyone that likes to restyle their look. This also means that it won't wash out with water or sweat. We recommend using Uppercut Deluxe Detox and Degrease Shampoo to remove Monster Hold from your hair.
