Behindthehair.com a celebrat cea de a opta editie a "Stylist Choice (alegerea stilistului)" si a premiat cele mai bune 30 de produse profesionale la fel si pe companiile producatoare. Festivitatea s-a tinut in Florida iar noi am fost acolo. Puteti vedea mai jos care produse profesonale ptr. par au fost votat de catre majoritatea stilistilor din America de nord ca fiind cele mai bune:
PureOlogy Hydrate Shampoo
Made from 100% vegan, zero-sulfates formula and infused with aromatherapy essences.
It is super concentrated so only a dime-sized amount is needed.
It has an Anit-Fade Complex that protects colour treated hair.
PureOlogy is known for expensive, high-end hair care products
Redken All Soft Conditioner
Detangles and replenshises hair to provide intense softness, movement and shine. Advanced silkening formulas contain Redken's exclusive Interbond Conditioning System and illuminating Silk-Luxe Complex.
Reviewers on epinions.com review this product favourably but note the scent of the product can be unpleasant.
Favorite Styling Gel, Lotion or Mousse
Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam
A huge accomplishment for a mousse where mousses traditionally were limited in their ability.
Conditions and styles, controls frizz and can be used on all hair types.
It is considered “pricey” by mousse standards but stylists and consumers believe it is worth the cost.
Favorite Hair Spray
Kenra Volume Spray 25 (last year’s winner)
Stylists love this product for its ultimate control. It is humidity resistant and long-lasting for hard to hold styles but without the stiffness or stickiness.
It has an almost cult-following: fans have been using this product for years and years.
Even with packaging and ingredient issues preventing this product from being distributed in Canada for most of 2007, Beauty Systems Group Canada reports this spray as one of its best-selling hairsprays.
Favorite Specialty Styling Product
TIGI Bed Head Manipulator (last year’s winner for favourite overall styling product)
Stylists love this product for its versatility and high-hold factor, but reviews by customers on dooyoo.co.uk indicate the product is hard for non-professionals to “manipulate” and that it leaves a residue on the hair.
It seems to be most effective for short, thick hair to achieve funky, choppy styles and takes practice to master.
Big Sexy Hair Root Pump
Favorite Volumizing Product
There are few claims this product makes on its packaging—its name says it all.
This mousse product required only a little applied on the roots to give lift that stylists are using on all the runways for super-voluminous hair.
Consumers call this a “wow product” for its reliability and effectiveness.
Favorite Flat Iron
Farouk Systems CHI Ceramic (last year’s winner)
This was singing sensation Rihanna’s iron of choice until she requested the new Express Style 1.0 from Paul Mitchell in May 2008 while on tour.
CHI has a huge fan base with stylists and customers and is beloved for its high heat function and the consistent results the ceramic plates provide.
Complaints from fans are not about how the product works, but that the case is easily damaged if it is dropped.
Favorite Overall Professional Products Company
Redken (winner for the last seven consecutive years)
Redken has a stellar reputation in the salon industry. The 48-year-old company believes this stems from its solid past of science with inspiration from the industry's best educators and a street sense of fashion that keeps Redken on the cutting edge.
