Rub a HK$5 coin-size amount of gel into towel-dried hair and style to your liking to keep your look in style all day. (Steal your mum/sister's hairdryer and blow-dry for maximum hold and shine.)

L'Oreal Professionnel Art Fix Move Gel (HK$126/100ml)

Perfect for those who like a bit of product, but still want that natural look - it doesn't leave hair too shiny or hard. Plus it smells great.

Indigo Strong Hold Gel (HK$75/150ml)

No styling mission is impossible with this product. It's super heavy-duty and leaves hair looking shiny. Plus you'll have that just-left-the-salon-smell following you around all day.

Mandom Long Keep Gel (HK$32.90/225g)

Keeps your hair on end - if that's how you styled it - for the entire day and smells really nice. Great for dry hair, as it's quite moisturising.

Gatsby Styling Gel Super Hard (HK$36.9/200ml)

If you're a fan of the spiky, shiny look, this is a great tool. Not strong enough for longer hair, though.

VS Sassoon Strong Hold Tube Gel (HK$29.9/150ml)

With a holding power of five out of a possible five, this keeps your style in place all day and all night. But strong doesn't have to mean sticky: this goes on without leaving that gloopy feeling between your fingers.
