Best texturising hair sprays – Telegraph.co.uk

These products do exactly what they say they will. There’s Easy-Up Do, which would halve the amount of pins you’d need for a up do, such is the strength of its hold. The Modern Hairspray is excellent for backcombing or settling a style. Lazy Girl is a dry shampoo that leaves exactly zero white residue on the hair (my hair is black, trust me on this), adds guts and gives back volume.

But my favourite is the Cool Girl spray. It adds grit to fine hair, especially if it’s just been washed and dried and looks a little wispy. It is excellent: but any of the four cans are worth adding to your beauty arsenal. I’ve listed a few very good alternatives to the right. I really like The Brunette Texturising Volume Spray by Label.M, in particular: part hairspray, part dry shampoo, it gives hold to the roots and is easy to use.

Although if you just want all of this done for you, who can blame you? Book into a John Frieda salon for one of its new Balearic blow drys. It’s not the big-and-bouncy number that has come to be the default salon blow-dry. This is far less ‘done’, akin to the relaxed hair you’d probably have after a week in Ibiza, and looks like you could’ve almost styled it yourself. Almost.
