John Frieda have the answer to your hairspray prayers, with products designed to make your ‘do last all night long. Now you can rely on ultra-fine mists that leave your hair feeling smooth, shiny and feel like - well - hair!
If you’ve got events coming up, then it is the perfect time to reacquaint yourself with hairspray so your ‘do doesn’t budge, no matter your hair type. So read our guide on how to use hairspray and which ones are right for you.
How to use hairspray like a pro?
To get the most from your hairspray, don’t spray too much in one area. Move the nozzle continuously to evenly distribute the product and hold your style in place. Spraying too much in one area causes hardening, which is definitely not the best look.
Remember to keep the nozzle about 30cm away from your hair to achieve maximum hold. If you use hair styling spray too close to your roots, you risk saturating your hair with product and making it look greasy!
Our best hairsprays for locking in your hairstyle
Whether you want to keep your thick locks from falling or add volume to finer hair, we have the right hairspray for your hair type below.
1. Hairspray for volume and strong hold
Perfect for fine hair, our Volume Lift Hairspray is an ultra-fine mist with long-lasting hold and easy brushability. Formulated with Air-Silk Technology, this mist is the best holding hairspray for those with stubborn fine locks.
Our top tip for finer hair; create additional volume by gently pushing the crown up after spraying for an extra boost.
2. Anti-frizz hairspray
If your hair is prone to frizz, we would recommend using our Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Flexible Hold Hairspray. This is the best hairspray for any level of frizz, and is even safe for colour treated hair.
Enriched with Keratin and special polymers, this mist transforms frizzy hair into soft and smooth locks. It’s also formulated with heat protection, so it’s ideal to use when sectioning your hair and using a heat styler. Apply after or during styling to finish and hold your style.
3. Hairspray for humidity
Frosty winter weather and dare we say it, rain, could instantly ruin the hairstyleyou’ve spent time perfecting. The moisture and static can actually damage your hair, making it frizzy, dry and simply unmanageable.
The solution to stop this - use our Moisture Barrier Intense Hold Hairspray to lock in your style and seal out moisture. This is the best holding hairspray to brave the elements, with its no-nonsense formula setting your style in place and giving a long-lasting and frizz-free finish.
4. Hairspray for blonde hair
This one’s for the blondes. If you find that hairspray usually causes your hair to go yellow or dry, try our Sheer Blonde Crystal Clear Hairspray. It’s a non-yellowing hairspray infused with polymers for a supple, touchably soft style and vibrant, glowing finish.
Just spray evenly 10-12 inches away from hair and you’ll have beautiful locks whether you have natural, colour-treated or highlighted blonde hair.
