House 99 Smooth Back Shaping Pomade

A big thank you as always to Roisin Tierney Crowe for sending me out some House 99 by David Beckham products to try. This week I'm reviewing the Smooth Back Shaping Pomade. After years of experimentation, the pompadour remains one of David Beckham's go-to hairstyles that he has reverted to time and again; giving it either a red carpet finish or a more casual twist. Either way, this pomade gives hair the perfect amount of hold and leaves hair with a natural look. This pomade is best suited for short to medium hair. It's re-shapable throughout the day and is humidity & sweat resistant. Beckham himself says this is one of his current favourite products and it certainly is one of the standouts of the line. There is no shine to speak of, which is important when you're looking to get a natural look, and the hold is good. It's very thick, so a little goes a long way. You'll pick it up in Boots and all good pharmacies for around €19.
