What It Is:
Drybar Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray*
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
I visited Drybar back in October and let me tell you, if there was a location nearby, I would be in there all too often. The experience itself was luxurious, but what really stuck with me was the products. My hair was so bouncy and shiny throughout the whole weekend and they smell unbelievable.
One of my favorites was their Money Maker hairspray, which “provides flexible, brushable hold and helps tame unwanted frizz”. When I say my blowout held all weekend, I was not kidding! I was interested to see if it was the product or stylist that made the difference and couldn’t wait to try Money Maker at home.
How To Use It:
After styling your hair, Drybar recommends holding the can 3-4 inches from your head, spraying all over, and then allowing your hair some time to fall and set. You can also spray Money Maker directly on your fingers and comb them through your hair or use them to tame flyaways.
CC Rating: A-
Firstly, I just want to say that I adore Drybar’s services, products and concept. They really have marketed it as a bar, with all the blowouts and products being named after drinks and the bottles are even shaped like old-time liquor! So cute and much-appreciated.
Money Maker is an excellent hairspray and really lives up to all its claims; flexible hold, reduced frizz and doesn’t give you helmet hair. I also found that using it greatly extended the life of my styles, even into day 3! Now that’s impressive. And the smell – don’t even get me started. Drybar’s Money Maker is the best-smelling hairspray on the market and has none of that chemical-scent hairsprays often do. You can still run your fingers through your hair and even brush it with Money Maker in (which is so nice) and I’ve found it washes out easily and doesn’t leave build up.
Now, I haven’t tried every hairspray ever and with a variety of cheaper ones, I can imagine you can find a similar hold for less than $25. However, I enjoy the little bit of luxury that Drybar products provide and know that you can’t go wrong with Money Maker. It retails for $25 from Drybar and Sephora!
