Kustom Kreeps Pomade in Jolie Magazine

Our Kustom Kreeps, Death Grip, Wood Scented pomade is featured in the September issue of one of Germany's favorite fashion and style magazines: Jolie. In a segment dedicated to beauty items that are skull related, they were nice enough to write up our psycho billy themed, sandalwood smelling, hair styling necessity.

From the pages of Pomade Shop (a European distributor of killer hair products):
"These cans are already lookers thanks to the awesome psychobilly styled graphics by the illustrator Nik Scarlett. The skull with a high shine psychobilly-pomp is just fascinating! The "Death Grip Kreeps Kustom Pomade" is heavy and waxy, but it remains  always creamy and silky. The hold of the hairstyle is superb, especially if you take the medium weight "Kustom Kreeps Monster Attack" as a base and the "Kustom Kreeps True Fright" for an extra shine. The Kustom Kreeps Death Grip Pomade, is mildly fragranced with a scent that is sweet & fruity, leaving the hair smell appealing."
