VO5 Dry Texturising Spray

Editor’s tip: Textured types of blunt bangs, like this one, require a texturising spray to give it that beautifully nonchalant vibe. So, we suggest you give the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray a go.

Not only is this fringe-saver (it’s great for reviving greasy bangs), it can help produce with bedhead looks and help with long-lasting styling, since it provides your mane with grip.
