April Cover Look: Guys and Dolls

as0415-CL_22-rev_C2101_fmt_1_0_0.jpegMatrix Artistic Director Nick Stenson and Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas had a blast customizing looks for our cover shoot this month. Okay, so they got a boost from Style Link, a new collection of formulas designed for prepping, styling and perfecting every type of hair. The unisex line offers unlimited inspiration, but it’s the Style Link Boosters, formulated for hold and shine, that expand your options. These highly concentrated formulas can be mixed with any Style Link products to boost performance. Just pump a few drops of the chosen Booster into the desired styling product mixture to instantly increase hold, maximize shine or amplify volume. The Prep line includes four products designed to create the proper styling canvas: Heat Buffer Thermal Styling Spray, Volume Builder Mousse, Smooth Setter Smoothing Cream and Turbo Dryer Blow Dry Spray. To mold, shape and design, choose from three products in the Play line: Super Fixer Strong Hold Gel, Shape Switcher Molding Paste and Over Achiever 3-in-1 Cream + Paste + Wax. Finally, perfect your style with Height Riser Volumizing Powder, Texture Builder Messy Finish as0415-CL_60-rev_C2101_fmt_0_0.jpegSpray, Volume Fixer Finishing Hairspray or Style Fixer Finishing Spray. Don’t think of Style Link as just another product line. Think of it as a styling philosophy that will empower you to master any look with complete confidence.✂ —Marianne Dougherty

Nick Stenson prepped Pernilla’s hair by cocktailing Style Link Volume Builder Mousse with Hold Booster to pump up the volume. “I’d recommend this formula for anyone with fine hair,” he says. Because Marco’s hair is heavy and a bit long on top, Stenson cocktailed Super Fixer Strong Hold Gel and Hold Booster to give the style staying power. “The last thing you need is for hair like his to lose its structure and fall,”
he says.
