Target Big Hair Don’t Care Holiday Beauty Box Review

I mostly use hairspray when I wear my hair up to keep frizz and baby hairs in place. On super humid days, I might spritz my curls to keep them from growing. I’m excited that Target put together this all hairspray box with 5 salon-quality products to try in cute mini bottles. Let’s check them out:

TIGI Bed Head Mini Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray, 2.4oz – Retail Value $5.99

First up is this mini-sized version of Bed Head’s Masterpiece. I like the bottle and bright colors! It promises massive shine and hold. The mist is not very fine and it sprays a lot at once. My hair felt wet after just a short spritz. The scent is strong and citrusy – it reminds me of fruit flavored candy or sour skittles. Once it dried, I didn’t really notice any more shine than I had, but it certainly offers strong hold with a little crunch.

Sebastian Shaper Brushable Hairspray Travel Size, 1.5oz – Retail Value $7 (found here for $3)

Next is a spray on the other end of the hold scale. This is a brushable hairspray that can be applied before and/or after styling. It has a short, fine mist that allows me to evenly coat my hair without wet spots. It doesn’t leave any stiffness and really can be brushed through without creating knots. I’m not crazy about the scent which has an alcohol/old perfume smell. Thankfully, it dissipates after a while.

TIGI Bed Head Mini Hard Head Strong Hold Hairspray, 3oz – Retail Value $5.99

This guy has no qualms about being what it is – a super, duper, hard hold hairspray. The narrow, long spray has a medium mist and really pumps out some product. The beachy, fruity smell is pleasant and on the subtle side. The more layers you add, the harder the hold and crunchier your hair. This would have been perfect during my dance and theater years when I wore crazy hairstyles that needed to stay put. Hello, Marie Antoinette super-pouf.

Big Sexy Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray, 1.5oz – Estimated Value $2.84 (Buy 10oz for $18.95)

John was the lucky one that got to test this spray. 🙂 I ruffled his wavy hair up so that it was quite voluminous and gave it a good misting. This nozzle makes a long, narrow spray that needs to be sprayed from as far away as you can get (tough when you’re spraying your own hair). It smells like straight alcohol but fades quickly and leaves little to no scent later. John’s fluffy hair stayed that way all day and felt a little stiff (but not crunchy) and had a mattified look.

RUSK W8less Hairspray, 1.5oz – Estimated Value $2.48 (Buy 10oz for $16.50)

I think this one is the winner for me! It offers strong hold with a touchable finish and can be used during and after styling. It has Thermplex which “activates with heat styling to condition, control, and add shine”. I don’t know about the shine and condition part, but I like that it gives me some frizz-fighting power without leaving any unpleasant feeling. This one also smells the best and has hints of juicy fruits like pear and apple.

The Verdict: The Target Big Hair, Don’t Care Holiday Box is a great box for those who use hairspray. Or, if you’re like me, great when you want to try several salon quality hairsprays without investing in full-size bottles! I like that they included a variety of formulas and I’m happy to have found one that I would purchase full-size for myself. This box costs $14.99 and has a total retail value of $24.30.

FYI for those that missed the Target Dermstore Box, it’s back in stock!! 😬 the Sunday riley good genes is worth more than the cost, what a great dea!
And thanks for the review of this hairspray box, I’m definitely getting one 👌🏻

@Tiffany, Thanks for a great review and especially for commenting on the scent of each product. I occasionally use hairspray, but anything with a strong, lingering fragrance will trigger my asthma and make me wheeze.
