Sprays can give your hair a messy texture without weighing it down too much. They can also lock a style in place as a finishing product.

Gatsby Quick Moving Mist (HK$39.9/ 100ml) 6/10

A neat dispenser but the product simply does not hold very well. Better to go with regular wax or paste products.

Faddy Strong Hold Moving Spray (HK$48/ 190ml) 9/10

Greatly versatile, with a long-lasting effect. Ideal for short to medium length hair. A must-buy item this summer.

LSNP Hold It Spray (HK$79.9/ 250ml) 8/10

Strong hold, and hair looks natural after use, and a blissfully pleasant, but mild, scent. Recommended for short hair.

Tresemme Iron Style & Hold Spray (HK$29.9/ 250ml) 5/10

Those of you who prefer styling your hair with your fingers, finding it gives more long-lasting effects, might be right. Like other sprays, the effects of this product are nowhere near as long-lasting as gels or waxes.

Sifone Hair Spray (HK$39.9/ 160ml) 7/10

Sometimes a bland option can be the most practical. This is not too fancy in its appearance, or too strong in its scent. But its holding ability is just fine, and its price is unreasonably reasonable.
