I'm not a huge fan of hairspray and, to be honest, rarely use them. So maybe my review isn't fair, since I have nothing to compare.
I received this travel size in a subscription box and actually never used it. Then, I decided to test a hair-do. I have fine, wavy hair and no ability to use bobby pins) and hold the pins in my hair. I have medium length hair and had only 2 pins at home... so, I was able to hold my entire hair with those 2 pins - I used Oribe Superfine spray before, to give my hair some texture and hold the pins, and after, to hold the style. I'm doing my regular chores at home - cooking, cleaning, organizing, and working fro home, as usual, for the past 6 hours and my hair is still in place. I can also smell the lovely fragrance once in a while.
To test a little bit more, I took out the pins and run my hands in my hair - it's soft and smells wonderful. I did a French twist and it's nice and in place - with no need of extra hairspray. I can't talk about the lasting effect, but I think it's so far, so good. For the wedding day, I'll definitely put on more pins and more spray, but I'm confident I'll be able to dance without worrying about my hair. Great product!
