Much more than a get-in, get-out affair, the barbershops of America’s past were community centers—places to chat, laugh, and, of course, groom. It’s with this approach that Blind Barber launched its flagship shop in New York in 2010. And it seems to have filled a niche. Wait times for a trim are often a week or more, and it’s not uncommon to find patrons queueing up outside for a drink. But for those who won’t wait, Blind Barber has launched a line of home hair-care products. These, too, have been turning heads, earning accolades from mainstream magazines like Men’s Health and Allure.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of 60 Proof Hair Wax, 90 Proof Hair Pomade, or 101 Proof Classic Pomade.
Infused with hops, both the 60 Proof Hair Wax and 90 Proof Hair Pomade offer a matte finish that leaves hair looking natural and full of body. While the 60 Proof Hair Wax offers a light hold and semi control, the 90 Proof Hair Pomade provides a strong hold and maximum control. Both should be applied conservatively: Begin with a dime-size dollop, emulsify it in your hands, and, beginning at the back of your hair, apply throughout. Meanwhile, the 101 Proof Classic Pomade was formulated with slick, old-school styles in mind, and offers maximum hold with a high-sheen finish. Like the others, it’s water soluble, so if you want a little looser of a hold with the same shine, apply it on damp hair and let dry.
