My New Favorite Hair Product

I ordered Hawleywood's Layrite Deluxe Pomade from Lisa Freemont Street, since she frequently uses it in her tutorials. I was a little skeptical since I've tried pomades in the past and they have weighed my hair down and were so thick and greasy. But, I'll try about anything that makes vintage hairstyling easier. Plus, if Lisa Freemont Street says it's good, it has to be!

I was very eager to receive my new product. I couldn't wait to try it out for myself. It was shipped very quickly and it was free shipping! I got it Tuesday. Yay! First, the jar is adorable. There is a pin-up girl on the side that you can't see in the picture. I was also immediately impressed by the size of the jar. You get a lot of product. Next, let me tell you that this stuff smells great! Time to test it out. I smoothed it over my victory rolls and it made the little fly-away hairs lay down and stay in a way that hairspray just can't accomplish. Next, I used it to smooth my large pin curled bangs. They turned out perfect.

Next day, time to test it out on a new style. I think I'll go with a Marilyn style (my favorite). I used hot rollers, lots of them and rolled my hair in small sections. I already had a little pomade in my hair from yesterday's style. I took out the curlers when they were cool and brushed it out. Put a little more pomade through it and I really don't think it's ever looked as much like a Marilyn style. This pomade really helps not only smooth out but also helps form your style and hold it in place.

I am hooked. This product is really wonderful for anyone who loves vintage style. It was only $14.99 with free shipping. It's a huge jar and I know it will last a long time.


  1. So glad it works for you! I use such a small amount that it lasts me forever. I literally just coat my hands w/ it and run it over any like a charm. I have baby hairs at my hairline that are impossible to tame w/out it. So thank goodness for Layrite! Something I love about it is that as the day progresses, it holds like a gel. Most petroleum based pomades begin to 'melt' in the heat and therefore, the strands can look a little greasy and tired by the end of the day.

    My husband used the Super Hold to slick his super curly hair back and to give our boys their flat tops.

  2. Hello, thanks for the lovely hair clips I ordered from you! I've written a few words on my blog about them (along with some other buys), check it out if you want to!


  3. And Layrite.. I love it. I think it's the best buy I've ever done when it comes to hairstyling!!
