HAIRSPRAY 101

  • There are three basic types of hold to choose from for a hairspray - light, medium, and strong. The difference is the strength of the hold and the flexibility.
  • The strength measures how much the hair will stay in place. The strength of the hold is affected by the size of the droplets that comes from the hairspray nozzle. Larger droplets tend to hold firmer onto your hair and smaller droplets usually provide a flexible hold.
  • Flexibility is the amount of hair movement after applying the hair spray. Lighter and medium hold hairsprays allow your hair to have more movement and flexibility.
