I bought Air Rise (Green) when it first hit the market and I absolutely love it.

It's very versatile and you can re-mold it anytime you want.

A little dab is enough for a large area.

It doesn't flake and it isn't residue-y and it's nice and matte.

Sleeping with it on...you wake up to some funky styles for sure.

My brother used it and he looks good =D

He looked like those fobby korean/chinese/japanese boys with nicee hair haha

Yea, a little bit is enough, you don't need to smother like tons of gel in your hair which when messed around with it'll flake and feel gross -_-

It's nice and light but holds perfectly =)

My friend bought the whole set while she was in HK :lol:

She used Loose Shuffle and it looked really natural (:

I wanted one but she told me it was for guys & so she gave hers away..... o_o

-edit 12 May 2008-

I currently use Grunge Matte. Very light & I love the texture... it smells good as well (:

muchlove!

I just ordered some yesterday from a Soompier

Green Air Rise ^____^V

This one seems to be really popular :0

I'm getting my hair cut to around.. chin length? And layered,

so I hope it'll give me a funky new look x]

aaaand I think girls can use this stuff too.

Just as long as their hair isn't past shoulder length..?

I'm using Air Rise right now and it works realllllllllllly well. Doesn't feel nasty since a little dab is good enough and it holds pretty well, even in the wind =o.

^ If your hair is layered, then I'm guessing you could probably use it on the upper section of your hair. Make it all puffy and light at the top. Just what I think ^_____^;; Someone correct me if I'm wrong ><;;

^ I'm pretty sure that girls can use it too.

It was made for guys, but it's just a hair wax, so why can't girls use it too? ^^;;

I think for us girls instead of using the wax to spike our hair or whatever

we could use it to give our hair the messy but casual look?

yay!! I just got my Gatsby today in Air Rise ^_____^

It works really well. I used it to make little tendrils at the bottoms of my hair

and to volumized my hair.

I used a little more than a pea sized amount, and it held just fine.

I'll probably take pictures later! :]
