We're Silly Over Sally Hershberger

We're Silly Over Sally Hershberger

Sally Hershberger charges hundreds of dollars for a haircut, but even if I won the MegaMillions jackpot, I'd be too dorky to have her snip. She's just so slinkster cool that I'd wind up babbling incoherently. Her new hair care line, though, is much less intimidating — and much more affordable, too.

I recently tried Supreme Head Style Primer ($12.49), a light pre-blowdry mousse that promises to boost the performance of other styling products. Unfortunately, because of my girl crush on Sally, I excitedly used enough of it to style the hair of a small country. Buildup ensued. Knowing that I could not be trusted with the stuff, I passed it along to geeksugar, who managed to use it properly. To find out why she loved it,


After you read geeksugar's thoughts, I think you'll understand why we are both so excited:

I'm used to using hair product when my hair's wet, just so my hair's not squeaky clean when I blow dry and style it. But I am not used to one that actually performs, like the Sally Hershberger stuff. I used a couple pumps on my wet hair, and I wasn't impressed with the initial texture (the mousse-form seemed thin and almost sticky), but when I started blow-drying with a round brush, it was like magic: I'd round-brush here and there, and it would dry and hold the way I wanted it to; I barely had to go back over the same section.

When I was done (in way less time than I normally take for a blow-out), it defined my layers and my cut and gave me this slightly piecey (and Hershberger-esque, I guess) texture. It looks like the cut the stylist intended! I didn't need hairspray or any shine product when I was done, either. I can't emphasize how impressed I am, especially for a drugstore product. I would pay way more than the $12 for a product like this.

So now there are two Sugar girl crushes on Sally Hershberger. One final note: Style Primer is meant for fine hair like mine, but geeksugar's is a little thicker, and it clearly didn't create any problems.

I have this for wavy hair and it's amazing. I just rub some in and let it air dry, maybe spray on some sea salt spray if I feel the need and I have these perfect beachy waves all day...

I've actually been wanting to try this product & her conditioner for normal to thin hair. Thanks for reviewing it, I no longer have doubts. I'm going to get it the next time at Walgreens. Thanks again!

I have been wanting to try these and now I will have to definitely do it. I just don't know which ones??? Thick curly layered hair for me and my daughter has medium/thick wavy layered hair. Hmm... We both get the frizzies in this kind of weather. Humidity is not our friend :(

I just bought the one for normal to thin hair, the style primer. I can't wait to use it! Maybe it will be able to resuscitate my limp hair.

OMG Thank you! I absolutley LOVE LOVE LOVE all these products no joke I discovered these products last year and I use them everyday I use the thick hair( minty green bottle) one and the straight one (gold bottle) I use the conditioners shampoo and primers ha I also use the wreck and roll cream and I love it it helps give a that texture and I find that it keeps my hair from frizzing up and its not sticky! I also use the shagg spray (little silver bottle) and it gives awesome texture and really defines all your layers when sprayed on and blowed dried over! As you can see I went a little crazy for these products haha but I love em all :)
