2016 is a big year in the Fish Soho calendar as it marks their 20th anniversary, Fish opened its doors in Soho, in what was formerly a 1940s fishmongers with original deco tiles and slate floor. In the early days of the salon the brand worked with, at the time a little known model, Ms Kate Moss on one of her very first photoshoots. It’s come on a long way since it created the first water-soluble hair wax with its unique coconut fragrance. The brand’s larger than life founder, Paul Burfoot, pictured above outside the Soho barber shop has many a great story or we caught up with himself and Fish Creative Director Jacqui Weaver to chew the fat on some of 2016 mens hair trends;
The quiff is a classic haircut that is here to stay , but with a more modern textured look to it , it’s all about hair that moves instead of the super tidy and firm hold look , also moving away from the disconnected versions we have been seeing to a more blended classic cut. This can be super tight at the sides or left with a little more length for a more natural look.
Apply some Aquafish Fishpaste to damp hair and dry hair pushing it backward with the fingers, lifting the root area to create some volume. Once dry use some Fish Stonefish Clay to give hold and texture to the hair with a matte finish.
Forward fringe –
It’s all about the fringe ,the hair is cut short around the back and sides and is blended into the top but is left with a heavy weight line , the top is textured and worn forward onto the face. This is a great versatile haircut as because plenty of length is left at the front it can be styled in many ways.
Dry hair forward into the face then use a little Fish Fishfingers wax to shape and define the hair.
Long hair is always effortlessly cool, Make sure the layers are kept long and textured to keep the shape looking masculine. Hair can be worn in a simple middle parting or worn on the side. Apply a small amount of Fish Fishpaste to damp hair before you dry to minimise frizz and finish with spray wax to add texture and define ends.
