TAKE 5: Fine Mist

hairspray

    We can thank the Hairspray movie for introducing this star hair product to a new generation. The number of people who rely on this fine mist for everyday wear is higher than you think.

    It provides an essential function – finishing off any look with hold while making your do look natural.

    Like mascara, finding the right brand for your hair is tricky. Those with poker straight hair need more hold than those with naturally textured locks. We have tested some of the best brands on the market to find out which ones work best.
