When you think about romance— and more importantly, romantic hair— you probably imagine that there’s some invisible fan set on low, always billowing your hair softly around your face. The unfortunate reality is that real wind is rarely in favor of your romantic, softly tousled hairstyle. You should probably just stay indoors after prepping with any of these “fan in a can” type of hair texturizers. They’re somewhere between a dry shampoo and a volumizing mousse. The best part is that they’re just as easy to use as a setting hairspray, even if their function is to do the near opposite— to give you perfectly imperfect hair. Just spray and go!
