Nobody wants to spend ages tonging their hair to perfection only for it to fall out an hour later, but these products promise hold until the early hours.
Alongside red lipstick and glittery eyeshadow, strong hairspray is a party season essential. And thankfully, this new crop of innovations means we don’t need to worry about loose curls and flat up-dos.
From clever packaging to high-tech formulas, here are the ones that promise to keep your hair intact from morning until well into the night…
Oribe Superfine Hairspray
Expensive, yes, but Oribe is one of the most effective hair styling brands out there. This medium-hold spray provides a dry finish but still has the ability to give hair a natural shine. Mango and kiwi extract add both flexibility and moisture to hair, while aloe vera leaf extract smooths and hydrates.
Oribe Superfine Hairspray, £35
IGK Hair 1800-Hold-Me No Crunch Flexible Hold Hairspray
The clue really is in the name here, but this hairspray gives lasting all-day hold and utilisies so-called styling technology which means hair doesn’t look or feel like it’s got hairspray in it and isn’t sticky or crunchy - instead it’s completely re-workable and brushable. Plus, it’s formulated with avocado oil and omega 3 fatty acids so it helps hydrate hair, while providing a subtle glow thanks to micro-light reflectors that are packed in there, too.
IGK Hair 1800-Hold-Me No Crunch Flexible Hold Hairspray, £23
L’Oréal Professionnel Infinium Pure Hairspray
This silver can was spotted countless times backstage at the s/s 2019 shows. It’s made up of just six ingredients, is hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and doesn’t leave hair feeling stiff.
L’Oréal Professionnel Infinium Pure Hairspray, £7.89
Design.ME Hold.ME Three Ways Hairspray
This clever cannister has an adjustable nozzle that lets you pick from three levels of hold: light, medium and strong. Simply twist to your desired strength, spray away and you are (quite literally) all set.
Design.ME Hold.ME Three Ways Hairspray, £13.96
Schwarzkopf Osis+ Session Label Super Dry Memory Net
Once spritzed, this ‘memory net’ formula disperses into microscopic droplets to form a fine hold that dries instantly. Smart tech means it even holds hair in shape when brushed through.
