Cult Favorite: L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin
Whenever we ask hairstylists which hairspray they use, the answer is almost always L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin ($14). "The aerosol spray produces a mist that's lighter and finer than anything else I've tried," says New York City hairstylist Eva Scrivo. Too bad for us that the propellant creating this exceptional mist wasn't compliant with U.S. environmental standards, which is why Elnett has never been sold here (stylists we know would load up on the stuff whenever they flew to Europe). After many years of research, L'Oréal has developed a new, more eco-friendly version that's now available at Target stores. We sent it to Eva to test out. "It's got a less powdery scent than the original," she said. But otherwise? She couldn't tell the difference.
