Get your Pomp on with American Crew Pomade

If I am ever asked to nail down my defining physical characteristics, I do so begrudgingly and with much conflict. But it seems when I ask my friends they can quickly offer up two or three. All black clothing. Good Hair. And sometimes Big Hair. Yes, I have been known to rock a pompadour and I will admit, the only way to rock a pompadour is with good hair product. I turn to American Crew Pomade.


Why do I love their pomade? Honestly, it feels less waxy than a lot of other pomades – making it easier to wash out but it doesn’t seem to compromise the hold. I would consider this a medium hold pomade (although I would consider it more than enough for even the most complicated styles) with high shine.

My tricks – multiple tools. Classic Rat Tail comb for the sides and to make clean parts. Boar hair brush to get your sides down and tight. Dressing table comb with long teeth to be able to get some height.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
