There’s nothing worse than spending hours poofing and primping your hair only to have your efforts fall flat the minute you head out the door. So what’s the fairest hair spray of them all? We put our heads together to come up with our tried-and-true faves. Here’s our hit list of best hair sprays.
Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray, $20, moroccanoil.com. This is our new crush. I was introduced to the heavenly smelling, natural hold hair spray by my stylist. Bless her and bless Moroccanoil for developing the yummiest aroma we’ve ever sniffed. Find it at salons throughout the Valley.
Kerastase Double Force Controle Ultime, $36, kerastase-usa.com. We like this one for teased-up poofs and dramatic up-do’s because of the extra strength hold that builds with each coat. It’s pricey but the kicker is that the formula contains a protective UV shield to prevent sun and pollution damage.
Profound Beauty Working Spray, $27, profoundbeauty.com. We love this one for serious styling. One coat helps daytime waves stay strong with a lightweight formula that gives a clean finish without the stick. But for big sexy curls, spray sections as you work the curling iron and use your fingers to loosen loops. Curls last but don’t look set and crunchy.
L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold with UV Filter for Color Treated Hair, $24, lorealparisusa.com. Crowned as one of the best hair sprays by Allure, Redbook and Self magazines, this hair-molding wonder gives hair a shiny finish while protecting it from humidity. Thanks to micro-diffusion technology, the spray comes out in a fine mist and hair stays put ’til the sun comes up (and then some)! Also available in Extra Strong Hold and Strong Hold formulations.
Bumble and bumble Classic Hairspray, $21, bumbleandbumble.com. A modern twist on the trusty aerosol, this great-smelling spray is dosed with sheen boosters and hair repairing proteins. The formula provides a medium, workable hold that easily brushes out before your head hits the pillow at night.
TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray, $18, drugstore.com. We can’t get enough of this spray’s built-in gloss that adds shine, fights dryness and boosts thickness. The medium hold formula lasts from morning until night and smells like berry.
PHYTO Light Hold Spray Laque Hair Spray, $18, nordstrom.com. When your hair needs to breath but still stay put, this botanical spray does the job with silk proteins that banish brittleness and soothe dryness. Gives relaxed daytime styles a light hold and is completely free of parabens, sulfates, petroleum-based chemicals and synthetic dyes.
Got 2b Styltini After Hours 24 Hour Laminating Shine Hairspray, $6.29, drugstore.com. Easy on the pocketbook, this spray gives style va-va voom with flexible hold that won’t weigh hair down. Go sheer with one coat or layer on for extra staying power.
