Lock & Loaded Bedrock Hard Hold Gel

We love reaching for Lock & Loaded for our men’s grooming sessions–whether you’re looking for just a little control or full-on sleek look, this small, substantial line has you covered. L&L’s Bedrock gives you the high hold and shine of standard gel, but with a flake-free, modern finish.

As Artistic Director of Lock & Loaded, Eli knows the line better than anyone! For a guest looking for a boost in volume or a high, pompadour-style, he blowdries in Bedrock while the hair is damp to create incredible shape. Eli also loves Bedrock for its strong hold that keeps any style looking great all day!
