Soho House Barbershop, Neville, Launches its Own Grooming Line

Like the Italians, the Brits have been perfecting the barbershop tradition for hundreds of years. They nailed the whole gentleman thing as much through regular visits to their local genteel haircutters as to the legendary bespoke suit spot, Savile Row.

Neville is a relatively new-fangled version of the heritage English chop shops as the in-house barbershop for Soho House. And really besides maybe Nigel, Neville is the most British-y British guy’s name the private club could probably have picked in order to highlight their authenticity. After Soho House was exported to the States, the barbershop also landed in its Chicago club. Although, the Windy City is the only location you can pop into sans semi-pricey membership, the two other Soho House locations in the US (Miami and New York) feature Neville products.

Even if you have no plans to stop by Neville anytime soon for a shave and a haircut, you can avail yourself of its collection of shaving accoutrements, along with a grooming line that includes formulas for hair, body and face. And finally, after shearing countless heads of hair, the barbershop is launching something it knows a lot about, styling products. Like its existing collection, this category is tightly edited to make navigating it as easy as humanly possible. Developed with Master Barber, Tom Harrigan, the trio of essentials is really all you’ll ever need regardless of hair type or cut.neville

For longer cuts and wavy or curly textures, Harrigan has developed Sea Salt Spray, a texturizing formula that includes Deep Sea Water ($17) to get that just-surfed messiness, but also has peptides to ensure hair doesn’t feel like hay. Shorter hair can use Hair Putty ($19) to achieve the desired hold, while defeating dandruff with Artichoke Extract and accelerating growth with Maca Extract. And anyone who likes a slicker style, like a pompadour, but despises greasiness, will gravitate towards the water-based Hair Pomade ($19), which also contains the flake-fighting Maca. We say cheers to these simple stylers.

Man using dry shampoo

Dry shampoos are one of the best shampoos for men and they're the perfect pick-me-up for when you need a refreshed look during those too-lazy-to-wash-my-hair days. But did you know there's also a more practical reason for it? You have probably heard once or twice that it’s against the laws of grooming to wash your hair every day. For real? Yes. It’s because of sebum — an excess oily substance your body produces naturally to defend your skin. It moisturizes, protects, and coats your body’s outer barrier.

If you’re wondering why we’re rambling about sebum, it’s to make you understand exactly why you shouldn’t wash your hair every day. When you rub your scalp with shampoo, you are stripping away the natural production of oils that nourish your hair. Sebum doesn’t sound sexy, but it’s how your hair gets the ever-so-coveted glow. And when you are constantly doing it, your body may not be able to keep up with producing sebum, making your hair and scalp can become dry and itchy.

A common misconception in the grooming world is that hair oil is exclusively for guys with medium to long hair lengths. The truth is that these products do wonders for all hair types. Hair oil quickly fixes dry and damaged hair, nourishes the follicles and scalp, and can revive your luscious locks, no matter how thick or thin.

The best hair oils are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids that nourish, hydrate, and protect and can even prevent graying or hair loss. And there is always time to incorporate it into your routine. While many other factors play a role here, specific natural oils, like almond oil, are known to aid in regrowth. We're about to share our picks for the best men's hair oils.
