These Pro-Approved Hair Sprays Are the Opposite of Crunchy
Hair sprays can be a tough sell; they get a bad rep for making your hair too stiff and for suffocating you with a pungent smell. But we're here to squash those misconceptions. You can lock your hair in place without losing movement (or your ability to breathe). We polled celebrity hairstylists and debated amongst ourselves at Byrdie HQ about the best hair sprays out there. Read below to see what we all had to say.
Toni & Guy Glamour Firm Hold Hairspray ($10)
"It's great for building texture when short bursts are applied to the lengths before setting in hot rollers or wrapping the hair around your favorite curling wand! Use to keep side swept bangs under control after styling or tame fly aways by spraying directly on a small bristled brush (or toothbrush) and smoothing the surface of hair." — Brian Fischer, celebrity hairstylist
R+Co Vicious Strong Hold Flexible Hairspray ($42)
"I'm really picky when it comes to hair spray; most of the sprays out there end up making my hair really stiff. This one from R+Co goes on lightweight but really keeps whatever hair style I have in place all day long." — Audrey Noble, associate editor
