“For volume and staying power, shake the client’s hair while she holds her head upside down, and add hairspray.” —Tom Mazy, sales director, agadirint.com

Aloxxi Firm Hold Hairspray

“To lock in extra volume, flip the client’s head upside down and finger-toss strands, adding a light mist of firm-hold hairspray to the root area.” —Marilyn Cole, artistic advisor, aloxxi.com

Redken Windblown 05 Dry Finishing Spray

“By adapting everyday cuts with styling, you create an impression. For example, you can transform a bob into a 40s-inspired look with dry finger waves, or fold it back into a disheveled french twist.” —Rodney Cutler, brand ambassador, redken.com

“When doing holiday hair, think of architecture. It’s all about building a secure base, using products that have traction and grip.” —Abraham Sprinkle, international creative team member, keratincomplex.com

Scruples High Definition Hair Spray

“To give holiday hair staying power without creating a helmet, use the proper foundation products to create workable texture and finish with a great hairspray.” —Mia Liguori McHugh, co-president of creative, scrupleshaircare.com
