Save, Spend, Splurge: 3 of the best hairsprays that aren't Elnett

When you think hairspray, you inevitable think L'Oreal Elnett. It's a classic, and it's a must-have; it has 100% earned its reputation. But it's not the only hairspray in the world.

These three are all very good in their own right and also deserve their 'it really works!' reputation.

Wella Shockwaves Power Hold Spray Ultra Strong €3.73 (Tesco)

Wella Shockwaves has been around for years. We think it works really well on shorter styles and it is just the thing for slick back flyaways. Good for perfecting an Ariana Grande ponytail. Spray it too liberally, and it gets a tad sticky, but, y'know, it's hairspray.
