Good barbers in Shoreditch? Was going Hayley at Joe & Co but she's opened Wild Hare in Tooting (great) but her and Joe/Co too much of a trek from Shoreditch.

Ruffians? Their shop in Edinburgh is very good.

Anyone recommend a cheap, light hold semi-matte clay?

V05 Matt clay. I get on better with it than Hanz De Fuko claymation.

Probably well late to the party on this one but been using a salt spray recently and it's a game changer.

My barnet has thinned slightly over the last few years so I wasn't getting the volume and texture that I once had. Was looking flat and shit.

This has totally changed that. Highly recommended if you're in the same boat.

Using this one and it seems decent: https://barberden.com/shop/mens-hair-products/johnnys-chop-shop-trigger-happy/

Any other recommendations?

If you want volume use this, second to none. My barnet has never been more voluminous since i started with this gear.

I rate Kevin Murphy' Free Hold. Can re-style through the day and washes out easy. By far the best smelling stuff I've had too.

I use American crew moulding clay at the moment on medium length hair, styled backwards.
Anyone got any better recommendations. It just seems to melt in this heat and lose all hold and looks greasy AF.

Same boat as you. Have to use hairspray which I hate though as it hardens your hair.

I'd recommend L'Oreal Homme Clay - it has a nice lightweight feel, only need a small amount for stronghold and your hair doesn't look like it has any product in. It's really cheap online and I've been using it for a few years now.

If you want hair that doesn't fall apart in the heat recommend using a volume mousse. Works well but whole thing starts to become a bit of an ordeal when you are blow drying with heat protector sprays, adding mousses, waxes, hair sprays etc. Worth considering just shaving it all off and dealing with looking like a thumb.

Shave my head but use THESE for beard/stubble and generally keeping things tidy all over.
