STYLE@LXG: Spike it the way you like it with Stage Works Spiky Booster

This April Shiseido Professional launched its new hairstyling product SPIKYBOOSTER from its styling line STAGE WORKS, a line specifically developed for salon stylists and fashion and beauty-conscious women.  

The perfect tool for creating hairstyles without compromising on the lightweight feel of clean hair, SPIKY BOOSTER works by taking advantage of the technologies and ingredients available only from STAGE WORKS, so that it can satisfy even male customers with short hair (that would be us at LXG). One of this new styling product’s attractions is its outstanding wearability that makes it possible to keep the created hairstyle all day long. 

In order to achieve the most powerful hair-setting capability, Spiky Booster has been formulated with a high concentration of finely granulated wax. In fact, it contains the largest amounts of wax ingredients among all the STAGE WORKS products, while still managing to have a readily spreadable, easy-to-use texture that does not stiffen. 

Formulated with volume-making powder in addition to wax ingredients, its hair-setting capability has been enhanced without the sticky feel that we usually expect from most wax based products!

Another big selling point to the product (in our opinion as wax using short haired men) is its Humidity Control Polymer which prevents our hairstyle from going flat when faced with high levels of humidity or water, a definite issue we face here in humid and monsoonal Singapore!

Spiky Booster retails here in Singapore at $30

STYLE@LXG: Shiseido unveils their SS14 Seasonal Trends!


White. A shade that invokes a feeling of purity and softness. A natural and  innocent shade. But for this spring / summer 2014, Shiseido launches their own interpretation of this classic hue. Think powerful, futuristic, sharp, and mysterious. 

LADIES' STYLE: Expect nuanced styling that plays with texture and shape This season, the focus will be on bold "white", with powerful fashion styles highlighting the contrast between light material textures and voluminous silhouettes. Hairstyles will add playfulness to texture and shape, with an almost natural styled finish. They may seem unworked and natural, but the key point is their calculated clean appearance, while the main makeup trend will be natural-looking makeup, focused on the skin, with color accents around the eyes.  

MEN'S STYLE: Expect deep side parts and a wet look express male sensuality Men's fashion will have a bold presence, but also a sense of playfulness and relaxation. Hairstyles will be square and off the face, with deep side parts emphasizing masculinity, combined with a rough, unruly sense of movement and a wet feel, like hair that has just been towel dried. These slightly laid back hairstyles emphasize male sensuality.

This April, Shiseido Professional launched a new SEASON COLOR COLLECTION for its PRIMENCE and PRIMIENCE ENRICH hair color ranges. The new shades represent a line of seasonal hair colors tailored to the 2014 spring/summer fashion and makeup trends. You can expect two colors in 10 hues from range that delivers clear, rich colors and a glossy shine to hair by leveraging the positive effects of water and light.
