We shouldn’t have to say it again, but we will: men can get “bad hair days,” too. You know the ones. Strands sticking up and crazy frizz thanks to humidity. To save yourself from those Alfalfa moments, you’ll need the right shampoo, gel, and spray to get some serious style and texture. In this case, hairspray is great for controlling frizz and keeping hair in place, however you like it. “Used as a tool to style hair, hairspray can also help men add volume, texture and support to hair, tame frizz and make any hairstyle last longer,” Chaz Dean, the founder of WEN Hair & Body Care, says. Hairspray is a great option for a diverse rang of hair types and lengths, including short, barely-there locks. “In fact, it can often times be more helpful to control shorter hair,” Dean says. Here are the best hairsprays to use when telling those wild locks of yours who’s boss. No more bad hair days.
This hairspray is perfect for holding hair in place like cement—leaving no room for fuss in the day. It creates lift and movement to wake up tired strands, and it blocks against exposure to wind, humidity, and excess moisture. This spray also creates a lot of volume, so it’s a good pick from lighter, flatter hair types.
