Hold It! Medium Hold Hairsprays

With all of the gorgeous red carpet and complex hair dos I've been covering, I realized that a light hold hairspray isn't always enough. Sometimes you've got to kick things up a notch to ensure all that hard work doesn't fall apart. However, trying to find a hairspray that won't leave your hair (and fingers) feeling sticky and icky isn't always that easy. Alas...here are a few!

Dove Extra Hold Aerosol Hairspray, $5.19, is a medium hold spray - so don't let the name fool you. This spray is much more gentle than you think. It is formulated with their fabulous weightless moisturizer® that conditions as it styles so that you don't get that gross gooey feeling in your hair. You will still get natural movement with just a little more hold than in a light spray, plus, it smells great and dries really quickly!

For two more medium hold hairsprays,

Pantene Ice Shine Hairspray, $3.99, is a medium hold spray that lasts all day long and adds shine to your hair. This is great for updos with a deep part, or for loose curls with a center part if you want/need to control frizz or fly-a-ways.

Paul Mitchell Worked Up, $12.35, is a medium hold hairspray that works great for setting waves. It adds texture as well as hold. It also dries extremely quickly and is made from vegetable-derived conditioners to add intense shine and will help to reduce static.

I have to slick back my hair almost everyday into a bun on the back of my head and I can't let there be any strays that fly away or I'm out of regs, but I prefer a liquid spray for the main holding part and then touch up the loose ends with the sprays. Then I walk around the rest of the day with a kevlar as hair but it gets it's job done. I know that doesn't sound healthy...
