    Hi. Hope you can help me with what style to go for, what products to use and also how to stop tangly fine hair!! I have no idea what I’m doing!! 🙂

  • chasek14 says:

    I like having a longer on top /upper sides look that can be styled back or allowed to have pieces fall down. Bangs grow a little slower and are a bit dryer than the rest of my hair.

  • Yetisplash says:

    Looking for a healthy medium to long length hairstyle that looks textured and wavy and effortless. Please help. My hair is always so dry-looking, especially the bangs area.

  • tim.ward says:

    Have had the same haircut for years now. Pretty come as shown except that I usually keep the sides at #1 with the longer top. With lockdown I decided to finally try a complete grow out at least once while I still have hair. Hair is thick and dry. Starts to curl and wave after the first couple inches. Usually use beard brand sea salt spray and american crew molding clay. Today was American crew boost powder and molding clay. Maybe because of the thickness or dryness it seems like it takes way more clay than it should to get some control especially at lengths when the hair starts to curl.

  • seancarter3645 says:

    Any advice or changes to what I am doing would be helpful. I have had a very short, tight Caesar cut for years, but now I’m choosing to grow it out. I use got2be hair thickening pre-styler, blow dry, and finish with dove men-care sculpting paste. I have very fine hair and the fly always drive me nuts. That is why I have always had short hair cuts and used a lot of gel to hold it down. I want longer hair, but I have to figure out what to do with it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  • Horrik says:

    I just started watching your videos and I have learned quite a bit. I have regular thickness hair that is transitioning into a widows peak. I honestly have no idea what to do. It is way more pronounced on the right side and not so much at all on the left. I currently use thickening shampoo and conditioner. I mainly just use moose and clay for my hair products. What do you think would work best for me?

  • Dave1895 says:


    Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated. As I explain in the video I have very thick, heavy hair which curls as it gets longer, think Moana! It can be completely unmanageable if I blow dry it and then try to style it, it just becomes a mass of curls and I end up brushing it forward with all the curls at the front. Normally I towel dry then apply a textured clay like Schwarzkopf got2b I styler, this keeps my hair in place but can leave it looking very dry and slightly grey with a texture of candy floss ??‍♂️. So I prefer a DearBarber mattifier but the hold just isn’t there.

    Please help I’ve had a skin head for 20 years and only just grown it out. I don’t want to have to shave it but I can see me getting annoyed with it the long it gets.

    Many thanks


    P.s love your work

  • Dave1895 says:

    Hello, any suggestions you have will be greatly appreciated. As I explain in the vid I have very thick, heavy hair which goes curly the longer it gets, think Moana! If I blow dry it, then try to style it I have no chance so I towel dry, then apply a textured clay or a DearBarber Mattifier which makes it slightly more malleable. Please help I had a skinhead for 20 years and only just grown this out. I’d rather not have to shave it all off again the more annoyed I get with it.

    Many thanks


    P.s love your work.

  • KoolAidMan7980 says:

    Hi Robin. I love your videos and your product reviews on Youtube. I currently have a high fade with a quiff style on top. I use the Toni and Guy sea salt spray along with Hanz De Fuko claymation. I was wanting to grow the top out longer and go to a Brad Pitt in Fury style cut. Let me know what you think! Thanks!

  • Benjamin White says:

    Hi Robin,

    Just wondering I’ve had this haircut for some time now and still struggling to style it, I am currently using odouds matte paste but my hair is thin and assuming that may be my issue that it is holding it down on weight, could you recommend maybe a new product or a new way to style as currently I am just learning to use a hair dryer and feel I may need to invest in a pre styler!

    Also if you have any tips on what other hairstyles may suite my face or face shape please let me know and any thoughts on the beard also!

    Thankyou in advance! And great chats about fragrance on Instagram ??

  • NIklasV says:

    Dont rely know if I am on the right track or not with the haircut. It´s desgin by my hairdresser. My goal now is to get it a litle bit longer and thicker. Thanks to you guys I just bought the Nioxin system 1 ? Let me know your comments, thanks for a awsome youtube channel! Regards Niklas

  • MazenAtef says:

    Hi, my name is mazen. I’m looking forward to lengthening my hair, but i have a problem, my hair is dry and frizzy, i use only shampoo and conditioner for my hair, i wonder which products can i use to make my hair straight and healthy? Keep in mind i don’t want to use any chemical method or heat. Thanks in advance

  • ThomasHannah says:

  • LEmer2 says:

    Hello Robin, my name is Luke. I had a buzz cut in October and my hair is finally starting to grow out again, which I am excited about. This is my hair currently (after an 8 hour work day) with the Moroccanoil Texture Clay (based on your recommendation). I would like to continue to grow it out, especially on top. My hair is quite fine so I did order the Aveda Thickening Tonic to try on it. The issue when my hair does grow longer is it typically falls flat even with product in it. I am hoping the combo of the tonic and this clay will work well. And I do also have a pretty nasty cowlick that I plan to cover once the hair on top grows longer. Do you guys have any suggestions on the best products to use for my fine hair and also hair styles that will work with me as it grows longer? And do styling powders make hair appear less oily/greasy through out a day or do they work like the other products like clay and cream? I’ve never tried the powder before. Thanks guys.

    • LEmer2 says:

      Also in order for the hair to sit back more readily (my hair always tends to fall forward) should the hair on top be longer in the front or towards the back?

    • LEmer2 says:

      I would love for my hair to look like it naturally falls backwards, which is does not lol.

  • EHocking says:

    My name is Eric! This is my current hair. Looking for hairstyle suggestions moving forward. I’ve typically kept the back and sides quite short with some length on top, either with a messy shorter look or a longer side part. I will be using thickening products moving forward as suggested, and a clay to style!

    Thanks in advance!

  • Richard R. says:

    My name is Richard, and attached is my video. Robin and Man For Himself, thanks in advance.

  • theopinonatedbrit says:

    So I’ve got pretty thick wavy hair. I manage to take it using heavy/firm products,. I have limited time to style before work and try to go for a classic pomp which very rarely works due to it being so thick. Any thoughts or advice on what other style I could go for that’s east to style, but still looks good. Thanks Andy


  • JDGoatley1984 says:

    I have never been able to pinpoint my hair type or been able to achieve a style I liked. My hair has been described as thick but I have noticed thinning possibly due to immunosuppressant medication I am currently on. Without product my hair feels flat, fluffy, almost feathery. I would love to have a swept back hair style like yours but I don’t think I have the hair type for it. My hair does grow rather fast but had it buzzed short since being fed up with not achieving a look I liked and having tried so many styling products. I am a huge fan of yours and if there is anyone that could give me advice on what type of haircut, styling product to use, and type of hair I have I believe it would be you. If you need a better video or pictures I’d be happy to provide. Thank you for your time. It is much appreciated.

  • Rocco987 says:

    Sorry I’m advance for how the video was taken, it’s kind of hard to get a 360 of your head. But I think it shows the front side and back and my face shape fine. I’ve been growing my hair out for a little while, and I’m not sure wheee exactly I want to go. Some styles I’ve been considering are a slick back undercut, a more natural slick back like Chris Evans in infinity war, a messy/volumous slick back, a side part quiff, or a much longer flow. Any advice is appreciated, but if you could recommend which of these hairstyles, or a different hairstyle altogether, best compliments my face shape, that would be greatly appreciated.

  • Shah Ahmed says:

    Hi there,

    I’m looking for a new hairstyle for when I cut my hair. My main aim is for it to be short but good looking. What would you suggest?


  • Jaden says:

    Hi robin thank for doing this. I’m just kinda I’ve met hair right now and I need help on how things change it. I don’t want to j to short it extremely long.

  • Mark says:

    I like the style I’ve got I’d just like to know what I can do/use to stop it from going all over the place. My hair is very frizzy and bouncy if just washed and usually, at a certain length, product ends up weighing it down and it looks awful.
    I got my hair cut yesterday and once I got home I found it was all over the place so I’ve spent the lay night and this morning trying to sort it all out so I’d like any opinions on if it’s passable if possible so I can get it sorted elsewhere if needed.

  • Ryan Murphy says:

    This is my hair right before a shower. I have fairly thin hair and am not sure if my hair (slightly receding) would look better short or kept at length to grow etc. I like classic looks and shorter sporty and messy looks a lot. I like to use Northern Lights by Shear Revival. Thank you so much for your time!!

  • Joe Griffiths says:

    Hi Robin & Team, I’ve recently been struggling on what to do with my hair and what products I should use, I have very fine thinning hair and tend to lean towards matte clay/paste products but havent really found a solution so I was hoping youd maybe be able to shed some light and help me out! Love the vids by the way keep up the content its awesome.

  • I am looking to get a haircut but I’m just not sure what hairstyle would work with my facial shape. I’m looking for something that I can work with. When my hair is at a manageable length I use clays to add dynamic to my style. Maybe something I can work with though.

  • Hello! I apologize for my weird facial expressions! My hair is a bit grown out from my normal style (about 3 weeks since last cut). My style has always been alright but I want something that is more fun and is able to make my face more appealing over all. I’m not opposed to change and would like to see the best you have to offer.

  • I am looking
    to do more of a textured quiff hairstyle with maybe a fade on the side and a undercut up to the parting line but curious to see what you think. I also want to know what the best products would be to obtain this i have lots of fine hair.

  • Harris says:

    Hello, recently i started to grow my hair longer, but i have some troubles with hair products. What is my hair type? I don’t know correct difference between thin or thick hair, and because of that, i’m really struggling to pick correct products for my hair type. Keep up the good work!

  • Aamir Azhar says:

    Hi, I managed to style this somehow for a day and I’ve been trying again but I’m not getting the same amount of volume like in the picture. I wanted to know what the hairstyle is called and how to be able to style it like that. Also if you have any other haircut suggestions. My hair comes down to between my nose and upper lip.

  • Tim says:

    Hi all,

    Looking for a new haircut/style. I have extremely straight hair and a fairly pronounce cowlick in the back. I have no issues with thinning or balding, just a high hairline. Thanks!

    Sending a few pictures of my old hair now.

  • Davis says:

    Have had short and long hair. Want a look that is modern and easy to maintain as I am a uni student. Don’t want to be too short but the hair is wayyy too long at this point.

  • Nicole says:

    Hey Robin. I explain in the video that my hair is curly (even though it doesn’t look it in the video), very thick and grows very fast. It’s very humid here in Florida so that also is a factor that plays into my hairstyle and routine. I’ve always been unsure of what to do with my hair so I’m glad you’re doing this. Thanks!

  • Bruno says:

    Hey Robin,
    First I would like to congratulate you on your youtube channel. Great content and great production!
    I would like to suggest a topic: London hair and skin products shops/brands where you can buy zero-waste (no packaging or refillable bottles, for example).
    I know it’s still challenging to find them, but I believe it’s totally necessary today!
    Best Regards

    I’ve been looking for a good haircut for my face shape for a while now. I wished for a haircut that will fill me with confidence! Thank you !

  • Rafael says:

    Thank you I’ve been trying to find a new haircut that fits my face shape and that will make me be more confident in myself.

  • Maruf Dewan says:

    Hey guys! I’m curious to know what type of hair I have? I have a good feeling it’s fine/thin, but I’m trying to convince myself it’s not and that it’s medium coursed, but I need someone else’s answer. Whatever my hair type is I do have a question. Would there be any problems growing my hair out a few more inches taller then it already is, and have those hair styles that are like side swept and such? I’ve always wanted long hair like that, but now the question is if it’s a good idea or not? And the types of products I should be using too is something I am in need of knowing! Thank you.

  • Jacob Benson says:

    Not my best styling, my hair is usually more wavy and has a bit more texture. My hair’s natural part is more towards the middle of my head so by the end of the day half of my hair flops over and it’s really annoying.

  • Johnny Tran says:

    I would love to try a new or improved hairstyle. I have coarse black hair, and I am not the biggest fan of shine. But, I am all ears for any suggestions you have. Right now I’m using a Lush Seasalt spray and Shear Revival’s Northern Lights for my styling. I have used Aveda’s Grooming Clay too.

  • You think this style suits me best or could I try something else. Wondering if I would suit a french crop.

  • Would a french crop suit me or do you think the classic comb over would be better


  • Just help me with a good hair style for my face shape
