Finding the best hairspray can be tricky. The right one depends on your hair type and the look you want to achieve.
Though the beauty shelves are lined with all manner of hair holding wonders, largely speaking they’re made up of the same ingredients – all with a shared purpose to keep your style in place.
But which one to choose? The basic hairspray varieties available are light, medium and strong hold.
The difference in strengths relies on the size of droplets released from the can – the bigger the droplets, the firmer the hold.
If you want to change your hairstyle throughout the day, take a look at flexible, medium-hold sprays.
Light hairsprays are another good choice if you only want to add a mild definition to your tresses.
Or if you’re looking to keep an intricately styled up do in place, look for strong hold.
Here are some to check out:
