I can’t exactly remember how I stumbled upon Steve Hooker‘s pomade, but I sure as hell am glad I did. Knowing that Steve is nothing less than a rocker, I knew that this stuff wasn’t gonna be anything but greasy! After a few emails exchanged, a package was sent off across the pond and I was readily awaiting its arrival! Believe me, I had my hair cleaned out thoroughly for over a week, in anticipation for this grease!
You know how stoked I am to get this, so dig the review!
Unlike most petrolatum based pomades, this stuff comes in a nice little plastic container - which is also a different container than the ones we normally see. Having played and recorded with Levi Dexter, it’s only fitting to see the lovely Miss Bernie on the label.
Opening it up, you get greeted with a nice vanilla scent. Unlike most vanilla scented pomades, this one doesn’t come jumping out at you, just enough to get you goin. You won’t be getting sick of this scent anytime soon!
I’ve had no idea the type of pomade this stuff was; whether it was light, medium or heavy, was gonna be something I’ll find out on arrival. After scooping it out, it has a very similar consistency to Royal Crown Pomade, but a tad more stickier.
As it were, this pomade won’t put up a fight when combing it through. It goes in nice and smoothly. As I mentioned in a previous post, these rockers know their grease!
Being a light pomade, this stuff is great for softening up something heavier, getting super slick side parts, or slicking straight back. But… I’ve worked this stuff in a little differently…
I prefer to apply this to damp hair. It won’t clump up, so you don’t have to worry about the ugly pomade flakes and streaks. It spreads nice and evenly, combs through like butter, and allowing you to pomp ever so nicely!
Of course, on its own you’ll get a nice low-profile pomp.
Overall, this is a great light pomade. Though there are many light pomades out there, this stuff stands out with its killer scent. A major turn off for some folks with lighter pomade, is the old school scent. Which is understandable, as most guys don’t want to remind the ladies of their grandaddies! With this pomade, you get that great old school look, with a new school scent. Definitely, a killer!
Once again, big thanks to Steve Hooker! You can scoop some up from his online shop here.
Until the next time folks.
