So, I was contacted by this company a week or so ago, and they requested that I give their products. I decided what the hell…why not. They’re a super new product, so I said fuck it. Why not.
I don’t agree at all with their mission statement or their mentality on style, but as I said before, I was like fuck it. This is will some additional information for my readers.
I present to you, Mister Pompadour Natural Beeswax Paste. I have no idea what it was prior to the review and am still having a difficult time deciding what it is. I specifically chose to try out the Natural Beeswax Paste before passing on the entire set to Harrison to review. I was hoping it would most closely replicate a normal pomade, but for better or worse, it did not.
Here is the product itself. As you guys can see, it comes in a cleanly designed jar…but in the same fashion and style as many metrosexual products. This is a 2 oz. jar, which puts it at about half the size of a standard can of goop.
You can see this kinda in the next photo, but it’s most noticeable in the video. This product has a weird ass foamy texture to it.
Be sure to have your hair slightly damp when applying this product. If you do not heed my warning, it will be an uncomfortable experience. It won’t be impossible, but you’ll likely get frustrated. Keeping your hair moist will make sure this product stays somewhat pliable.
If you heed my warning, combing it through will be like a water-based product. Not what I expected from a ‘natural beeswax’ product but whatever. It’s workable.
Time. It took an above average amount of time to style with this product. I’m not accustomed to its characteristic, and its not the right product for my specific hairstyle.
Slickness. This is a characteristic that is nonexistent in this product. You will likely not find slickness in any sort of metrosexual product out there. We live in a time where the common male pedestrians like to try very hard, but put most of his effort into pretending not to try. Thus, we get bedhead product. Ew. But for more practical purposes, my hair will shift and translate about itself throughout the day due to the lack of slickness.
Strength. It was strong though. Not the strong, but it had hold. Longevity and durability of hold is in question, but in terms of instantaneous magnitude….yeah, it’s there.
If you are going for a metrosexual pompadour, then this may be for you. This product definitely lends more towards a pompadour that is loose and faux in appearance. It’s difficult to style a very clean and tight pompadour, so I wouldn’t use this product for myself. Luckily, you guys will thicker or wavy hair…it may style better. It won’t control and straighten out your waves or curls, but you can style some more ‘natural’ with it.
