Styling 101: How to use Hairspray, Mousse and Hair gel

Are you in a hair-product rut? Do you reach for the same one every day regardless of the style, weather and occasion? Your hair has more than one need, which can vary vastly from day to day. Here’s a lowdown on what you should be using, and when.

Find the strength

Every woman needs a medium-hold, flexible hairspray like the Kérastase Laque Couture in their arsenal. Ideal for everyday use, it’s a micro-mist fixing spray that will softly set your style, so you can wave goodbye to the dreaded crunch. Or for those special occasions you need a bit more support, go for the Laque Noire – it provides firm hold as well as fighting frizz, without any of the stickiness. Pro tip: it’s a common misconception that hairspray is for using on the end result only. Try misting lightly onto dry hair before using curlers for even more hold.

Mix it up with mousse

Ask any professional and they will tell you the same thing: mousse is one of the great, unsung heroes of the modern hair-styling world. It adds volume, reduces frizz and provides hold, all without adding any weight or build up. For smooth hair with plenty of movement look to the luxuriously opulent Kérastase Mousse Bouffante , or for defining unruly curls reach for the Mousse Curl Ideal. Great for those mornings you don’t have much time on your hands, simply apply your mousse of choice to wet hair, using a wide-tooth comb to create even distribution and leave your tresses to dry on the fly.

Up your style game

For a more sculpted look with plenty of texture and personality, look no further than our range of creams and gels. Achieve countless styles with the multi-talented Forme Fatale – on wet hair it serves as a construction blow-dry spray to build movement and shape that’s soft to the touch, or on dry hair it acts like a gel that holds without stiffness. Our all-over thickening spray gel Matérialiste will make your short locks much easier to style, as well as look thicker and shinier – perfect for creating a head-turning look, or even for those who just want a natural air-dry with a bit of an extra lift.

Finding the right styling product for you and refining your hair care routine has never felt so easy!
