Fish Hair Review – A New Hair Styling Brand You Need To Check Out

Any guy with thick hair will know all too well how hard and frustrating it can be to find a hair styling product that actually works and holds your hair the way you want it too.

We’ve all experienced that feeling of looking in the mirror whilst out and about and realising your hair looks completely different from when you left the house!

The popularity of our article ‘how to style your hair like David Beckham‘ shows that us guys are turning to the internet for hair styling tips and inspiration but also to discover what products are actually going to work and hold.

Fishstory – The History Of Fish Hair

Now, you may be thinking, like we did, why the brand is called Fish? Don’t worry, none of the products include anything from a fish.

Paul the founder of the brand created the brand based on his knowledge and passion for hairdressing. The Fish salon, in Soho London, was previously a fish market in another life. Upon learning about the building’s history, Paul decided to honour it’s history and name his salon Fish.

The Fish hair brand was first created in 1995 with an initial batch of 50 pots of the original Fish hair product. Due to the success of the products within the Fish salon, the product was picked up by Superdrug and sold nationwide.

Fish Hair Review


We’ve tried and tested several hair styling products on the market and recently stumbled across Fish’s range of hair styling products.

We saw Fish hair stocked in Boots and thought we would give them a try – we’re now avid lovers of Fish’s hair styling products for men.

Fish’s range of hair products can be sub divided into the individual sub brand below.

  • StoneFish – Styling hair clays
  • FishFingers – Defining hair waxes
  • FishShape – Texturising creams
  • MemoryFish – Hair gels
  • FishFibre – pliable fibre for hair
  • FishPaste – Matt effect putty

We’ve tried most of Fish’s hair range and one of our favourite products has to be the Fish Stonefish Styling Clay.

Fish hair styling clayThe Fish hair clay is neither too dry or too wet. A perfect product is you’re looking for a matte effect hair styling product. The Fish hair clay is non greasy too.

The Fish hair styling clay washes out really easily, even with just hot water. This makes a change to most hair styling products on the men’s hairstyling market.

Want to know what we love the most? The smell of the fish hair styling range is epic! Luckily the product has nothing to do with the smell of fish.

The fish hair products are coconut based, meaning they have a great, summer-infused, fresh scented hair styling range of products. Packed full of notes of creamy coconut, banana and soft apple softened by floral masculine notes of rose, lily and iris.

We’ve given them the big thumbs up from us and its now one of our products of choice. Don’t believe us? Check the reviews on Boot’s website, rated 4.5/5 stars.

  • Perfect for a short and choppy style
  • Matt finish with medium hold
  • Doesn’t clump hair or crumble

Happy Birthday Fish

Fish recently celebrated their 20th birthday, having released their first product in 1995 – a water soluble hair wax with a coconut fragrance. Roll on 20 years and they now have a range of over 25 products to try.

Styling Tip


We thought we’d end our article with a Messy Quiff styling tip using Flexyfish Spray Wax.

  1. Apply the gel to damp hair and blow dry your hair up and away from the face to create volume.
  2. Once, dry, finish with the Spray Wax to add texture and definition to your quiff.
