4. TIGI Bed Head Full Of It Volume Finishing Hairspray

Finding the best hairspray for volume for fine hair can seem like a double-edged sword sometimes because while you obviously need a hairspray that’s firm enough to actually lock in your style, crispy formulas that will weigh down your hair are a major no-no.

5. VO5 Dry Texturising Spray

Ask any hairstylist for tips on tackling flat hair and they’ll tell you that layered haircuts can make a massive difference. A plumping powder or texturising spray like this VO5 Dry Texturising Spray cleverly helps to define and plump up these individual layers, complementing the cut perfectly.
