The Panic Room presents Blind Barber 60 Proof Hair Wax

Blind Barber 60wtThe Blind Barber is someone’s dream come to life: a barbershop and cocktail lounge sharing the same premises, where a man is able to devote time to his tonsorial and libationary needs simultaneously. You can bring the dream closer to home with their range of premium products.

The 60 Proof Hair Wax comes in a stylishly designed heavy black jar that exudes quality. The scent is a sweet vanilla that gets stronger when you scoop it out and emulsify it between your palms, giving it a creamy texture. Once you run it through your hair, it will start to firm up slightly, but it will not cause any tugs when combing and styling.

It is best applied to blow-dried hair; you will notice the added volume and firmer hold compared to application on towel-dry hair (which does offer better control but less holding power), which is usually more desirable in the humid Singapore climate. Bear in mind that the 60 Proof Wax is a light hold pomade, so there is a limit to how much it can do – it is ideal for finger-combed styles or a loose pomp, with a matte finish. As this is a water soluble pomade, washing off is a breeze.

Don’t turn a blind eye to the proof, get your wax on at The Panic Room.
