Which hairspray?

Postby gastwo » Sat Jul 24, 2010 7:33 am

What is the best brand that members have come across? I'm having a job finding a firm hold one that doesn't have an annoying perfume. (for modelling, I hasten to add. I haven't got sufficient hair to control...)

Sorry mate, I can't help you with your quest.
But if you ask your sister, girlfriend, daughter or wife, she'll know the answer to your question :-)

You could try mens hairspray - it shouldn't have such a girly perfume smell if that is all that bothers you.

The alternative is that Spray Mount stuff from Art Suppliers, does the same job.

Come on now Shaun, you're among friends here. Next thing you know, it'll be wanting to know what's the best nail varnish (for locking screws with, of course) :wink:

Sainsbury's cheap & cheerful hairspray smells quite clean, not girly and is good for holding things is place- I used it for fly-away hair! :oops: :oops: ( My hair's very thick so gel doesn't work!!)

I would love to see a photo of how you've incorporated your hair into the scenery of your layout, KT!

Now if this thread had been under "off topic" I could understand the reply! :wink:
