Luke Newman and Steve Purcell were childhood friends who built the Uppercut Deluxe brand were inspired by their love for barbering, skating and surfing. Luke Newman lived in Portland Oregon around a corner where there was an old-style barbershop next to where he got his daily coffee from. This made him discover the world of barbering some years after he was done with studies. Luke Newman always admired the barbershop every time he passed near it. He admired how barbering trade fostered community cohesion. He also realised that barbering was a timeless trade that one could do forever. He vowed to follow his dream regardless of the several challenges he faced after undertaking his studies.

Newman is one guy who up to date has made a manifold success out of barbering. Luke Newman remained to be a role model to many young entrepreneurs who faced several setbacks in their pursuit of their dreams. Steve Purcell, on the other hand, grew up passionately hating school and despite the efforts of his parents and tutors, he always turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to their advice. Steve would often times miss classes claiming that he was in the wrong career. During one occasion, Steve accompanied his brother to the barbershop to get a trim and fortunately the barber happened to be looking for a student who he would train to be a barber. Steve Purcell had not yet made up his mind regarding the profession he would embrace after dropping books. Without a second thought, Steve grabbed the chance and gave barbering a go.

Purcell had a tight relationship with his grandfather who always accompanied him to the barber during his young age. This made his barbering training work out successfully for him because the memories were still very fresh to him. Steve Purcell and Luke Newman were so committed to their calling and with their deep common thirst they opened their own barbershop where clients would make long queues waiting to get trims and cuts from their favourite barbers. During this days, barbering was not doing well in Australia but this did not dither Steve’s and Luke’s desire to be the best and scale to heights that other barbershops had not achieved. It was not that easy to overcome most of the challenges and frustrations that were present those days. For a certain period of time, Uppercut was forced to use second-rate products that did not match the ambience of their shop. Amazingly, the boys delved into creating products that would satisfy their esteemed clients and distribute them to other barbershops that were interested in their products. It was not an easy journey to make and experiment these products. Overwhelmingly, they did not give up nor give in to the challenges that almost succumbed their dreams of creating new products. Uppercut eventually launched their first Deluxe Pomade product after several years of experimenting their product with diverse formulas. Uppercut Deluxe has made great developments over the years through the unfathomable labour of love for Steve Purcell and Luke Newman. Uppercut got its brands name from Newman’s Grandfather Willy Oshea who had a harsh upbringing but rose to be a boxer. He always believed that a good ending is made up of hard beginning. Luke’s dream was to make the barbershop be a place where gents would come sit, relax, hang out and get cool haircuts and trims. Initially, Luke and Steve wanted the barbershop to be like a garage where men would come to pass their time and get their haircut but over they years this has not been the same story. Uppercut Deluxe stands out to be one of the best barbershops in Brisbane. The two guys stories have inspired many young entrepreneurs who are on the verge of giving up to keep following their dreams irrespective of the challenges they meet along. Luke and Steve have earned great fortunes by merely saving and overcoming every single challenge that came on their way in pursuit of success. They amazingly grew from having no experience in making hair products to being one of the best product being sought after by many barbers to use in their barbershops.
