Paul Burfoot may be England's ballsiest barber: not only has he bravely tackled the hair issues of Oasis' Noel Gallagher and Ozzy-spawn Jack Osbourne, he also created the "Razor Fish" -- the world's first fashion mullet. In between, he produced a formidable line of men's hair-care products that are just now arriving in America.
Paul broke into the hair business the old-fashioned way: he ditched school at 16, then set up his flagship barbershop in a defunct London sex store. In 1990 Paul unleashed his first product, Fishfingers: a molding wax you can actually rinse out without using turpentine. A few years ago he teamed with KMI (the empire behind King of Shaves) to distribute his goods worldwide. Just a sampling of his stuff:
Fishshape: This shaping cream isn't oily or greasy, yet doesn't dry hard either -- so you can reapply without creating an impenetrable, NFL-ready shell.
Jellyfish: Like gel, but more pliable. Great for short hair, or spiky hair like that worn by rock artists and other men who relish cheap, meaningless sex.
Sportfish: It's a hair, face, and total body wash in one. If you don't see the genius, you're either a wastrel, or a woman.
Like everything from King of Shaves, Fish products won't loot your wallet.
