Creativity, passion and hard work are the building blocks of a great brand and thankfully Uppercut founders Luke Newman and Steve Purcell have got ‘em all. The Australian childhood friends with a love for barbering, surf and skate have won the high regard of a healthy slice of the British barber market. The brand launched with Uppercut Deluxe Pomade in 2009 after a year of uncompromising R&D with their long suffering chemists because both Luke and Steve were committed to creating a high quality timeless grooming product that their clients could use for a lifetime. The look of the brand is inspired by traditional 1950’s barbershops and the name? That credit goes to Willy ‘Uppercut’ O’Shea, Steve’s grandfather. Willy O’Shea was a member of a boxing troupe that toured rural Australia during the Great Depression. His motto was ‘a hard beginning, maketh a good end’ which sounded fitting! So his nickname, ‘Uppercut’ and his image have been immortalised on every tin and product.
