Big Sexy Hairspray

As you will know from my previous post, on Thursday evening I attended a blogging event run by South Beach Official. At the end of the event, we were lucky to receive a gift bag full to the brim of amazing beauty products, vouchers, holiday accessories and more! One of the items in the gift bag was a can of "Big Sexy Hair" hairspray- a brand that I have heard so much about recently and was eager to try out for myself! So I decided to put the product to the test and see if it lived up to its high expectations...

To achieve this hair style I curled my hair from about 1/3 of the way down with my GHD's, taking one section at a time and slowly working my way around my head. (tip: if you leave the top 1/3 of your hair from the root down straight it is much easier to style and hold in place once you get to the backcombing stage!) Once I had made sure every section of my hair had been curled, I tipped my head upside down and gave it a good spray with the "Big Sexy Hair" hairspray. As soon as I had flipped my hair back it instantly felt like it had much more bounce, and the hairspray dried almost instantly, but avoided leaving that horrible crusty feeling that most cheap hairsprays tend to provide! Taking the top layer of my hair, I backcombed it using a fine comb on the underside of my hair, and spritzed it with hairspray once more before clipping into place, creating the beehive/ quiff pictured above.

The hairspray promotes itself as the driest hairspray on the market and boasts of its thickening and bulidable hold qualities. In the past I find that my hair and hairspray either go one of two ways as around an hour after application I am either left with rock hard, crusty hair, or my hair has simply turned into a floppy mess, with the remains of hairspray making it look greasy... so where I can I always avoid the product! However, I have to admit I am now a converted woman... yes I have only used this product once, but the results from that one application were enough to convert me to the world of hairspray.

Thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway, it is now over and I will be announcing the winner over the next few days! Make sure you leave your comments below as I love reading them and always try and reply to every single one!

  13. I'm so jealous that your hair can do that. I once tried to do that to my hair and it just looked messy and funny. Like Bellatrix Lestrange's
