What’s Hot: Hair Fragrance

What's Hot: Hair Mists
Sometimes, it’s difficult to spot trends in beauty and other times, it literally lands on your desk. That’s what has been happening lately and one thing is for sure—the next hottest trend in beauty is hair fragrance. If you haven’t noticed these hair mists popping up lately, you will soon enough. While the concept of hair perfumes isn’t exactly new, many brands are now jumping onto the trend of launching a subtle, more gentle version of your signature scent to mist a cloud on your crown.

Why do you need a hair mist if you’ve just got the real thing? Good question. Hair mists tend to be formulated with a more gentle, less-drying base (aka lower alcohol content) so you aren’t damaging your locks. They also can include other ingredients to help the scent latch on and linger longer. Layer them with the original to maintain a consistent scent or use them alone for a subtle way to wear fragrance.

The result? Delicately scented strands of your signature scent that you’ll be catching a whiff of as you *hair flip* throughout the day.
