This Key Hair Staple Instantly Doubles Volume (and Is Impossible to Mess Up)

We love a perfectly undone hairstyle. You know what we mean by "perfectly undone," right? It's a look that's volumized and defined yet tousled and lived-in—the kind popularized by off-duty models and the French.

As any hairstylist will tell you, nailing that look comes down to using the right products and the right technique. While the right technique might take some time and practice, the right products come easier. In this case, the right product is a texturizing spray. "A texturizing spray is exactly what it sounds like," says Jamila Powell, founder of Naturally Drenched and owner of Maggie Rose Salon. "The purpose of a texturizing spray is to add texture, volume, and support to your hair to make it easier for you to style."

Texturizing spray can benefit every hair type and texture. "If you have thin-to-flat hair, a texturizing spray would help your hair have some extra hold when trying to style it and help the style last longer," Powell explains. "If your hair is naturally curly or wavy, a texturizing spray is a great alternative to using hair spray to seal in the style without dealing with the stiffness or crunchiness that hair spray can leave behind." 

So, yeah, it's official: This stuff is the key to effortless yet elevated hair. Ahead, see the 14 best texturizing sprays to shop. Each one was handpicked by pro stylists and hair-obsessed editors.
