Hairsprays have been around for years, but there’s a myth behind them of what they are for. They also get misused, under used or over used. So which is the right one for you?
Hopefully we can help you with that today with some useful tips and pointers that should put you in the right direction, from our staff.
Windle London Have three sprays in total. Two are actual hairsprays and the other is a texture spray. So lets look at each one individually and help you figure out which is which.
This is the one with the green text. It’s the lighter of our 2 sprays. It is a lightweight, easy to brush out spray, designed for a few uses. It also contains a heat protector and is humidity resistant.
Light Satin hairspray has a workable invisible hold, so it can be used to hold in a curl or wave when using curling irons, or help to smooth out curly or frizzy hair with straightening irons. The heat protector stops your hair from getting so damaged from the dry heat. It also contains Spirulina extract which helps to strengthen hair and seal in moisture.
Use the Light Satin Hairspray before using any dry heat tools, but he suggest to allow the spray to dry slightly on each section after you’ve sprayed it so it drys onto your hair first, before applying the heated tools.
He also uses this spray to get a light hold once hairstyling has been finished to help keep the style in place without looking stiff or preventing the hair from still moving. It also can help to give hair some extra shine too to your finished look. .
Spray some of this onto your fingers then on to flyways to tame the really stubborn hairs that insist on staying upright.
Salon Stylist’s Recommendations..
Jean Marc..he recommends this spray to help to fix movement you have created in hair but is still light enough to keep hair maluable.
Jake..he recommends to use this spray to finish a look and hold in place.
MJ..she recommends this spray on fringes, to tame fly-aways and also on fine hair as a lighter hold spray that won’t way fine hair down.
Vicky..she recommends this spray for not only a light hold but also to give a finished look some shine.
Charles…he recommends this spray for creating a smooth finish at the end of styling that can be brushed through and also loves to use it as a heat protector when using heated tools.
Nicole..she recommends this spray to help create a little bit of texture in a finished look.
This is our updated version of your good old classic hairspray that keeps everything in place. We’ve added a heat protector, so should you have really stubborn hair that doesn’t like to curl you can use this to help. Its also humidity resistant so should you have straightened your hair but any bit of humid air will revert it back at the drop of a hat, then this spray will help the straightened style last longer
(obviously if you get completely rained on then I’m afraid it won’t help)
Like the Light Satin Hairspray it also contains Spirulina to strengthen and help seal in natural moisture.
This spray is perfect for traditional updos and contemporary hair ups too, but its spray is fine enough that it will still brush out of hair easily, should you wish to re-style or change your hair, or simply brush the style out.
Use the Sculpture Hairspray more as a spray that will fix things into place. We suggest that if you are creating a traditional updo i.e. a Beehive or French Pleat this spray is then perfect to mist over your final style once everything is in place. It will prevent the hair from moving but will not make it look too sprayed. The spirulina will also help to give the hair some extra shine.
If you are creating a more contemporary up do you can use the Sculpture Hairspray in exactly the same way. We love that this spray, as strong as it is, will completely brush out with ease if needed.
The Salon Stylist’s Recommend
Charles… he recommends this spray for holding hair up securely, Charles suggests that this spray can last in hair for a few days should you wish to not wash your hair.
Vicky… she recommends this spray for any up-do’s and says its guaranteed to hold.
MJ… she recommends this spray to add more texture and hold for a contemporary up-do
Jean Marc… recommends this spray when you need really strong hold at the roots and around the crown area when creating extra height.
The Matte Texture Spray is not so much of a hairspray but more of a styling aid. This virtually invisible spray creates texture, volume and body and ‘brings flat hair to life’. It also contains spriulina extract which again strengthens hair and helps to seal in natural moisture. This particular product is very popular back stage and on editorial shoots. It’s kind of our version of a dry shampoo, but without all the powdery residue.
We suggest to use this spray in a couple of ways. One of these would be, if you have fine hair and you need to create some instant root volume. “lift up sections of hair and mist into the roots approximately 25cm away from the head”. Once sprayed either use a brush or your fingers to rub into your hair. If later in the day you feel it dropping, repeat the technique again. Another suggestion would be to spray the roots and the mid lengths of dry hair with this product to create a more cooler, tousled, rock and roll type texture.
MJ..recommends this spray especially for creating root volume on a finer hair where the texture is to remain more natural looking and less blow-dried.
Simon..he recommends this spray on shorter haircuts to create some volume on textured areas without looking too overloaded with product.
Sergio..he recommends this spray when creating a textured hair up i.e. Amy Winehouse Beehive. Spray at the roots before back combing.
WE HOPE THIS HAS HELPED IN YOUR QUEST TO FIND THE RIGHT SPRAY FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR HAIR!!
