The It-it: L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray

We always wondered how the top hair stylists got those perfect Gisele Bundchen curls and waves. Well, now we have their best-kept beauty secret: L’Oreal Paris’ Elnett Hairspray.  For years beauty editors traveling to Europe, would famously load their suitcases with cans to bring their hoard back stateside. Now it’s available in most drugstores in the US and the days of crunchy curls and untouchably styled hair are gone.

The Elnett hairspray is set apart by its diffused weightless mist that can easily be brushed out, yet it still preserves a strong hold throughout the entire day. It will make your locks look shiny and healthy, and it is also humidity resistant to withstand even the muggiest Manhattan summer day.

While at $16 a pop it is more expensive than Aquanet but it will make a world of difference to your styling.  Our only complaint is that the powdery, old lady scent that clashed with our perfume. Luckily, Elnett now has an unscented version, as well as a formula for color-treated hair with a UV filter.

While we are not delusional enough to think we will ever be as hot as a Victoria’s Secret model but at least now we have the ability to get their sexy bombshell hair. Next week we will be covering how to get super-model legs. TBC…
