Ever since Beyoncé strutted her stuff in the "Flawless" music video with perfectly tousled, messy-but-chic waves, chanting the lyrics, “I woke up like this,” the only thing that’s been on my mind is, “How did she wake up like this?” and, more importantly, “How can I wake up like this?” 

I’ve been envying the volumized, subtle waves of Instagram models and celebrities for quite a long time now and, up until recently, I had always just assumed destiny would never allow me to achieve this look.

That was until I discovered game-changing texturizing sprays, a product that will make all of your off-duty model dreams come true. 

Volumizing sprays can cure just about every hair related problem from frizz to flatness, from lack of moisture to excess grease. It can smooth, curl, lift and shine every last strand on your head.

Given that there’s a texturizing spray out there for everyone, we’ve narrowed down a bunch that you can tailor to your hair type.
