Quick styling is easier than you think!

Wax is so easy to use that it makes everyday styling possible. It has a strong setting power and flexible movability allowing you to easily create your desired look. Wax is simple to apply even for beginners and so-called “lazy” people.

Your look is always changing!

Hair wax won’t harden like gel or mousse so you can get a more elaborate look that will last longer. And now without the stiffness, you can even restyle your hair after only applying the wax once. This means you can easily rearrange your hairstyle to match all situations throughout the day.

You are unique, so stand out amongst the rest!

Wax’s strong setting power allows you to arrange common hairstyles into something of your own creation. Your look has never been more easy to change. Stand out amongst the surrounding fellows with a unique hairstyle and discover a new person within yourself!

A hairstyle that never loses its shape!

Different from gel, wax enables you to restyle your hair without reapplying product or washing. If your hairstyle loses its shape during a date, just pinch and twist your hair to reactivate the power setting. Never have a hairstyle flop again! “How does wax enable restyling?”

Wax can be used for all hair lengths!

Hair wax products can be used on various hair textures and lengths of hair, whether short, medium or long. A single product from the GATSBY MOVING RUBBER Hair Wax series can work for a wide variety of hair types and lengths.

The Japanese grooming industry clearly divides wax and gel into different categories.
MOVING RUBBER Series belongs to the Wax category.
    *Cool Wet differs partially in composition from others in the series.
