Brandon Burleigh for Uppercut Deluxe
What more can be said about a sport that has come so far from humble beginnings in 1950s California to become a global presence in such a relatively short period of time? As a company, Skateboarding has always been in our box of things we love. It’s not uncommon for Bishops employees and our clients to use skating as a mode of transportation to get to our shops.
It’s almost absurd to think that Jason Lee was a celebrated professional skateboarder at one point. Or that most of the Bones Brigade now qualifies for AARP. But that’s the beauty of the sport. Exciting new skaters arrive and leave their imprint in significant ways in our viral world. We were excited to learn that one of our hair product partners, Uppercut Deluxe, recently signed one of these new talents to their ambassador roster.
Brandon Burleigh, originally from Mission Viejo, was initially attracted to Uppercut Deluxe because of its founders’ original backgrounds in Skating. Their partnership appears to be a match made in heaven. Brandon has an effortless style. His hair starts it all off, done in the classic Pompadour slicked-back style. It’s not always an easy haircut to pull off, but he does so flawlessly. Products like the Deluxe Pomade or Matte Pomade and a good comb are fundamental for these slick-back haircuts. Added bonus: They’re both water soluble, so rinsing the products out is easy.
Need something looser but still solid and pliable? The Clay may be just what you’re looking for. Perhaps you have a longer hairstyle and just need to tussle your hair ala “day at the beach.” The Salt Spray may be what hits the best. Bishops welcomes skaters of all ages to come into our shops.
