Hairspray Guide: Finishing, Texturizing and Shaping Hairspray

Not all hairsprays are created equal. Hairspray was originally designed to seal your style by preventing any hair movement. Chances are your mom wouldn’t leave the house without locking down her 80’s hairdo packed with volume. (Trust us, in the 80’s that look was the icon of fashion and style.) But now, women are looking for softer, more flexible forms of hairspray. Modern hairsprays vary in level of hold and flexibility to accommodate every look and style desired. This hairspray guide will teach you the differences between finishing, texturizing, and shaping hairspray and when to use each one. 

Finishing Sprays

Finishing spray is the most similar to classic hairspray as it provides a stronger, firmer hold. This spray is strong enough to perfectly mimic those iconic 80’s hairdos that your mom rocked, or it can hold that beautiful updo you spent hours perfecting.

Who Needs It?

Ideal for women who want a firm, flexible hold. It’s perfect for holding everything from wedding hairstyles to a sleek pony.

What Does It Do?

It provides a fast drying and humidity resistant finish to reduce frizzy, flyaway hair. Get brilliant shine without buildup or residue.

How Do I Use It?

Hold the can 8 - 10 inches from hair and spray evenly. For extra control, you can spray onto sections while styling or finishing the hair. Now rejoice in the fact that you can go about your day without having to worry about your hair.

 

Texturizing Spray

Texturizing spray is very different from the classic spray in that its principal purpose isn’t to hold style; its purpose is to build volume and texture. Many women want those beautiful beachy waves. But for those of us who can’t take a quick swim in the ocean every morning, a texturizing spray is the next best thing.

Who Needs It?

Perfect for women who are looking to build volume or achieve a tousled hair look. It’s fantastic for creating hairstyles that transition from day to night or effortless beachy waves.

What Does It Do?

The waterless formula builds volume and adds sexy texture for bigger, fuller, more glamorous hair. The added Keratin will also work to keep your hair healthy.

How Do I Use It?

Shake well and spray into the hair. Build volume and shape by working your fingertips through the hair. Spray on your finished style for long lasting support. 

 

Shaping Hairspray

Shaping spray provides beautiful volume, incredible shine, and long-lasting hold while retaining your hair’s natural style.  It’s so frustrating when you create beautiful curls and waves, but 30 minutes after styling your hair has fallen flat. Shaping spray can be used during and after styling to preserve all of your hard work. It’s perfect when creating flawless updos or bouncy curls.

Who Needs It?

Ideal for anyone who needs a slow-drying spray while working to perfect their hair style.

What Does it Do?

This spray provides volume and long-lasting hold while providing incredible shine. The formula is humidity resistant and contains a natural sunscreen for UV protection.

How Do I Use It?

Shake well and spray 8 to 10 inches away on dry hair. Spray while styling for extra texture and control.

-

Hairspray has been around since the late 1940s. Even though you aren’t looking for the same firm hold that your mom and grandmother required, hairspray is still an important part of the styling process. Finishing sprays still give us that classic hold, but texturizing spray and shaping spray bring something new to the table. Texturizing spray can build volume and texture, and shaping spray can actually be used during and after styling. (It would have saved your mom a lot of time if she had a spray that she could use during styling.) Whatever you need, there is a hairspray for every style.
