Product Summary:

Gatsby Air Rise is a hair styling product that delivers a strong yet natural hold, accompanied by a green apple scent. While it may not offer the strongest hold available, it effectively maintains hair styles all day, ideal for achieving a natural look. The scent is an artificially fruity but pleasant green apple aroma, with a masculine appeal. This product provides a matte finish without flaky or wet-looking residue, enhancing natural body and volume while leaving hair feeling fresh, smooth, and pleasantly scented.

Its lightweight texture doesn't weigh down hair, and its creamy consistency allows for easy, even coverage through the hair. Priced between $15 and $30, GATSBY AIR RISE is particularly suited for medium to thick hair types, offering a natural, light hold perfect for restyling throughout the day. However, it may not be the best choice for fine or thin hair.

With daily use, the product can maintain its hold throughout the day and may last for a couple of months. It washes out easily without leaving a sticky residue. Overuse, however, can result in sticky hands and challenges in reshaping the hair. For optimal styling results and a soft, moveable hold, it is best applied to slightly damp hair.
