Consider gravity-defying styles like the beehive, pompadour, über-teased bangs, and big 80's hair; all impossible without this sticky aerosol fixative.

A mix of argan oil and coconut extract to nourish strands while forming a barrier against humidity (they claim it reduces frizz by 87 percent). This fine mist dries instantly delivering light hold.Nexxus Frizz Defy Frizz Protection Hair Spray; $10
