The Best Hairsprays for Every Hair Need

Hairspray would have to be the beauty product I’m the most-picky about. As someone who rarely wears their hair too ‘done’, keeping a tousled look while holding volume and preventing fly-aways isn’t easy. The wrong hairspray can quickly turn your effortless look into a high school prom look circa 1980.

Too many hairsprays leave a shiny finish or create that awful crunchy texture. Others may have your ‘do’ looking amazing for a few hours but don’t stand up to the elements of everyday life, let alone a night on the town.

The latest and greatest formulas however, are almost undetectable in your hair and do everything from a light and flexible hold to super-strong hold for finishing touches.

From locking in curls to smoothing fluff, boosting volume to adding texture, there’s an infinite amount of uses for the right hairspray. Here’s our favourites…
