60 Seconds With An Ambassador: How To Use Cream Pomade

60 Seconds With An Ambassador: How To Use Cream Pomade

Achieving that crisp dapper hairstyle is not that difficult, but using the wrong product could result in you looking like a Super Saiyan instead of sophisticated and suave.

Zeus Ambassador Justin Birckbichler uses Zeus Beard’s tried-and-true pomades to get his hair looking right for any occasion — from the classic bed-head look to a tight side part. 

These styling tools will give you reliable all-day hold that is easy to restyle, and it’s easy to wash out at the end of the day. 

Unlike hair gels, our product won’t flake on you or leave behind a sticky residue. On top of that, some of our verbena lime-scented pomades contain jojoba oil, aloe vera and beeswax to hydrate, protect and add volume to your hair. 

“These pomades smell great,” Birckbichler said. “I love having that scent waft around throughout the day.”

How to use Zeus Beard's Pomades

Zeus cream pomade

Birckbichler specifically loves using our cream pomade, which offers a medium hold and gives his hair a matte finish.

If you want a firmer hold, opt for our firm-hold pomade, a water-based hair product that will last all day.

To prep your hair for the product, Birckbichler recommends using a comb, preferably a Zeus acetate hair comb. Run it under some water and brush your hair with it until it’s nice and damp.

While your hair is wet, scoop a dollop of your preferred pomade into your fingers, work the product into your hair and style it to your liking.

“I love the texture of the cream pomade,” Birckbichler said. “It has a nice hold but doesn’t get stuck up in my fingers.” 

When your done styling your hair, wash your hands and you’re done. Now your hair is on point and it only took a few minutes.

If you need to restyle your hair in the middle of your day, just lightly dampen your hair and use a comb or your fingers to get it looking right again.
