Redken, one of the nation’s leading companies in providing salons and consumers with professional products, cuts the way for a whole new style of video game just in time for the holidays. Get ready to add this to your wish list!
Through the video game ‘Busy Scissors,’ consumers and stylists alike can sharpen their professional edge and virtually experience the life of a salon professional! An industry first, Redken teamed up with game publisher, Little Orbit LLC, for this hairstyling and simulation video game. Busy Scissors is now available in stores for both the Nintendo Wii and DS.
Get ready to color, shampoo, cut, blow dry, and style hair with your Wii remote. Players can earn a positive reputation and advance their career in a Hollywood-based salon by meeting the demands of their glamorous and eccentric clientele. From movie stars to musicians, each client has his or her own personality that players need to match with their hairstyle. The game progresses as the stylists help unlock each client’s inner potential by finding their unique style. The game features more than 25 hairstyles, 20 mini-games, six career levels and four game modes, which provide a dynamic combination of realistic gameplay, humor and entertainment for all ages.
Now consumers have a whole new way to engage with Redken by using actual professional Redken products in a virtual salon, as well as get a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to be a professional hair stylist. Game developers spent months working with industry experts to emulate real hairstyles used in the game. Each salon technique was demonstrated and filmed by the team before it was re-created in 3D as a game, so consumers are able to imitate actual hair styling techniques used by professionals. What a fun way to sharpen your skills as a stylist!
Busy Scissors is now available for $19.99 at your local Gamestop, Wal-Mart, or K-Mart. Or, visit the Busy Scissors website to purchase the game online!
