Layrite is a brand from sunny California. Started in 2001 with a classic Pomade for the barbershop of the boys of Layrite, Harleywood in Orange County. The eccentric Donnie Hawley is the founder of this barbershop and the founder of Layrite. After experimenting and mixing with Vaseline, Mason Pomade and Old Spice After Shave, he got the hang of it and started developing his own pomade . The result was the Original Pomade, which over the years has become the water-based pomade of the USA.
How did Layrite come about?
Donnie Hawley, who grew up in a barbershop, noticed that the barber trade was dying out. His love for the profession did not allow that and in 1999 he started his own barbershop. Inspired by the rockabilly style. He found himself greatly limited by the products available. So he started experimenting himself. While testing his pomade, one of his customers said it was the only product that 'made his hair lay right'. This inspired Donnie Hawley to create the Layrite brand in 2001. The rest is history.
