If there’s one hair product that will always hold a permanent spot on our vanity (and in our hearts), it’s hairspray. Older formulas might have a solid reputation of leaving your strands looking and feeling stiff, but today’s light hold hairsprays are brushable, moveable, and most importantly crunch-free. What’s not to love?
Looking to try a light hold hairspray for yourself? Whether you have long dark brown hair or shorter ash blonde locks, you can’t go wrong with these 10 standout formulas.
