Words: Alex Twohey
The 90s trend is reviving far more than our love for has-been pop bands, crop tops and mismatched sportswear. Now we’re seeing the return of hair and body mist – yep, you heard us right! And we’re about to tell you why this is one comeback that well and truly deserves a standing ovation…
HAIR MISTS KEEP YOU SMELLING LUSH…
Find yourself relying on dry shampoo to keep your hair smelling fresh? Then it’s time to up your game. Our fave scents are being reinvented as luscious hair mists to envelop your crowning glory. We can’t get enough of YSL Black Opium Glow Hair Mist, which is true to the original scent, with notes of black coffee, white flowers and vanilla, and infused with argan oil to smooth flyaways. And the best bit? It comes in the beautiful YSL Black Opium Glow signature bottle.
… AND CAN BE LAYERED WITH YOUR FAVE FRAGRANCE
Layering isn’t just the key to a fab wardrobe. If you feel your scent has zero staying power, spritzing your hair will guarantee a long-lasting aroma. But perfume’s high alcohol content can dry it out, so save it for pulse points and double up with a matching hair mist. Mugler Angel Hair Mist infuses your hair with an oriental blend of vanilla, exotic fruits and bergamot to leave you with a stunning scent that will do no damage.
BODY MISTS KEEP YOU SMELLING BEAUT
Topping up perfume throughout the day is a pricey way to keep smelling gorge. And who wants to risk damaging their favourite designer bottle at the bottom of their bag? Body mists are the perfect alternative, and we adore Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely Body Mist, a summery blend of white amber, creamy orchid and lavender. Freshen up with a quick spritz whenever you fancy, to keep feeling cool and moisturised throughout long hot days.
… AND CAN EVEN BE SPRAYED ON YOUR CLOTHES
We’ve all been guilty of going a bit spray-cray with our perfume, but fragrances such as Minnies Girly and Gorgeous Body Mist are far less concentrated than perfume, so they’re perfect for spritzing frequently over your body and clothes. Bonus – you’ll leave light, glorious wafts rather than headaches in your wake!
