since we are on a thread regarding hairstyles, I will say this much. I don't like Asian style haircuts. I like the traditional and modern cuts. The Princeton/ivy, disconnected comb over, etc. I also don't trust 10 dollar hair cuts. For those two reasons alone, I avoid/do not go to Asian hair salons. I am sorry I could not provide a racist response to feed your buddy under the bridge.

Hey, all I did was suggest that he could go to any Vietnamese salon because they are likely to carry the product he is looking for and he insisted he didn't want to. I originally speculated at first but now I genuinely want to know why. What difference does it make if he goes to a white, Indian, Chinese, Bengali or Latino salon to buy what he wants? It is a known fact that Quantum is a salon exclusive and likely to be carried by mom and pop shops.

Don't know what his reasons are, but that was mine.

Had a friend buy me a few when he came back from Japan! It's pretty good and definitely MUCH easier to wash off than Moving Rubber.

Curious, where do you get your cuts and how much?

I've been going to Asian salons but I don't go for Asian styled cuts. My cut has been somewhat inbetween...

I've been to a number of places. I have been to Jack on Cambie. The stylist there has moved to a different salon, and I have followed her to her new place on King Ed/Oak. Her style is hybrid as well. Asian/Western. For a while in between I was going to Lucious in Yaletown, then to Sebastian 1, as the stylist from the former to the latter. He was very good as he had skills with old school Barbering and also modern styles. He moved out of BC, unfortuantely. I have since gone to a guy at Clementine for Hair on Cambie 14th area. He does tight fades and pays a lot of attention to his work. I like to try new places once in a while, as you can see, lol.

I have yet to find someone who is very versatile. The ones above that I have mentioned are very good in particular styles.

What's a good wax/putty/etc that gives a textured matte look with medium hold?

If you're going for non-asian cuts, I would definitely recommend going to a barber or salon that is 'western'. Friend of mine went to an asian place to get a cut didn't like it, and 1-2 months later went to a barbershop and gave them the exact same picture as reference. Huge difference in how it turned out! After I stopped sporting asian hairstyles, I've been going to JD's barbershop in gastown and am always satisfied with their service (ask for Johnny or Travis).

Awesome product so far.

I have only used gatsby grey.. and I hated it.. dried way too fast and was so matte it made it look like there was film on my hair... the lsb stuff dries matte but goes on kinda like american crew forming cream but less shiny. it's hard to explain.

Agree with a couple recent posters here,

Got2B is the best. Sticks awesome during the day. I haven't found anything that lasts this long. Been using it for almost 2 years.

Probably not the answer you're looking for, but Axis Hair Salon has their house branded shampoo called "Stri'per." AXIS Hair Salons - Home

It will take out anything you put on your hair. I don't suggest using it all the time unless you have product on your hair. Costs $20 but a little bit will go a LONG way.
