Shiseido Professional Stage Works for Your Perfect Hairstyle
Did you know the popular Shampoo & Rinse brand “Shiseido Professional” has produced a hair styling series too? It is known as the “Shiseido Professional Stage Works”.
“Stage Works” is based on the concept that the ideal hairstyle is derived from three steps: Pre-, Base- and finally Finish- hairstyling. Well, you may think “it sounds difficult” or “sounds troublesome” upon hearing those three steps.
However!! It doesn’t mean we need to follow the three steps strictly!! (^^)
It’s possible to use any of the item by itself, so let’s choose items that best fits what we need to achieve the hairstyle we want!
STEP 1: Pre-Hairstyling
“Pre-hairstyling” is a term we don’t hear often, so let’s first understand what role “pre-hairstyling” plays.
Aren’t there times when we just can’t get the hairstyle we want, even when we use wax or mousse? This is because of the quality of our hair can be an obstacle to hair styling. For example, if our hair is too thin or too thick, it might be difficult for the styling to hold. Therefore Pre-hairstyling creates the best quality in the hair as the first step to achieve the ideal hairstyle.
In fact, there are three types of Pre-hairstyling products for different hair concerns.
★ SHISEIDO Professional Stage Works Smoothing Primer (For hard hair)
The Smoothing Primer is a hair oil for people with hair that is hard to control or tend to have a hair spread. Use after towel dry or on dry hair. The Primer will control hair volume, while giving the hair a smooth and soft finish.

★ SHISEIDO Professional Stage Works Bouncing Primer (For soft hair)
The Bouncing Primer is a hair lotion whose hair is unable to achieve volume even after styling. Use after towel dry or on dry hair to achieve volume from the roots of the hair. For anyone who uses hair iron to curl their hair, you can use this before curling to have a long-lasting curl!

Although we may not be familiar with the term “pre-hairstyling”, its role is similar to hair care involving hair oil, hair mist etc. Furthermore, this is a step important for anyone who are having problem setting their hair or lack lasting hold. Anyone without hair quality concerns might be able to skip this step!
STEP 2: Base-Hairstyling
There are various types under base-hairstyling, including wax- and gel-types. Therefore, we’d like to introduce three popular items which gives the hair a natural, voluminous feel, and a light finish that doesn’t feel that you have applied any hair styling tools!
