Most Helpful Positive Review Awesome Find!
This hairspray is a good buy. It lasts all day and it is easily brushed out without getting greasy. I have greasy hair so I always have problems with hairspray. I either have to spray too much to get it to hold and then it gets greasy or I have to spray too little so it won't be greasy and then it doesn't hold. This is just right. The price tag is definitely a little steep compared to other hairsprays, but I would rather use this than most professional brands. The only thing I like better is Sebastian Ultra Shaper hairspray, which is $3-4 more. Plus, you can use your Ulta coupon to get it closer to Nexus price level (and it is way better than Nexus).
Most Helpful Critical Review Too expensive for what it does
I read tons of reviews of this product, recommending it as a quality value, long-holding hairspray without being sticky or making the hair "hard." I found it to be easy to use and light, but didn't hold the curl or control frizz AT ALL. Since that was the purpose, I found it too overpriced and ultimately a waste of money.

This is a great hairspray I do enjoy it however it has a very Very strong scent that lingers all day! And it does get white ashy spots (you know the stuff that looks like dandruff) when brushed out but overall great hold and enjoy using it
Love my makeup from Des Moines
This is my go to hairspray. Lightweight, a stronghold and a fine mist.
Love Love Love It!!
Kayzlee from Owasso, Oklahoma
I think this is the greatest hairspray around! It goes on like a light mist but it sure does hold my style really well. I have a short pixie cut but I don't have to use any other products except this hairspray and I can go from just a tousled messy style to a lot of peicing and not worry about my style, even in the wind, not looking like I just did it after a long day at work. It doesn't add that "grayish" build up tint you get from other hairsprays; it makes my hair look shiny and healthy. I stock up on this product when Ulta has a sale so I'm never w/o.
Perfect travel hairspray
Holiday girl from Los Angeles area
When I travel a I hate heavy cosmetic bags. This product lasts way over a week. Tried them all this is the best.
I do buy this over and over again!
Denise from Hamburg, NY
Perfect every time!
Love love love!!
Kylie from Los Angeles
One of the best I've used. I hate when dry shampoo leaves a white trail, but this one doesn't!! I really enjoy the smell too!! My clients always ask about this and are amazed that it's so affordable as well.
My go to hairspray
Mari from Miami, FL

Teresa from United states
This product is so good I would buy this for ever very nice I really liked this product
Milldar from NY
I have very fine, thin hair - this product does not make it greasy or lay flat. It is not stiff or sticky, and I also find that I can brush it out, but if I want to later on, I run a damp (not dripping wet) comb through my hair and can style it with ease.
Not my favorite product
All things beauty from NJ
This Shari spray did not have any hold. It also has a strong smell. Everyone I thought of putting the spray on my hair I would change my mind because I did not want to smell the odor.
Mel from Cincinnati, OH
Disappointed long time user. Along with the newer can design comes water added to the formula. Read the ingredients on the new can. I have an older one. The ingredients listed are not correct (for the new formula) on this Ulta site. Consequently, this spray no longer holds like it used to. Well, I hope they reverse this moronic decision because sales decrease and revert back to original formula. According to Allure magazine, Elnett was a runway favorite in Europe before it was available in the US. Purchased by a US company has led to changing something great to just another cheap ineffective hairspray. Water, really?

It worked great on my vacation to Mexico, but the smell was awful! Tried to cover it up by use no extra perfume. Wish the smell wasn't so off-putting. Does n't know if I will use it once I get home.

I have very fine, thin, and color-treated blonde hair. This hairspray does not affect my color, and keeps my hair where I want it to be. If I leave it on without touching it, it looks nice, and it easily brushes out, leaving no residue. It doesn't make my hair feel greasy, which some other hairsprays can.
Scent is awful
Mary from Boise, Idaho
I wish I could have smelled this before purchasing. The scent is so awful. I hold my breath when spraying and run out of the room to get fresh air. I will be throwing it out and getting something different.
Smells like bug spray
Yazzibae from Washington state
Works ok, but it smells like bug spray😭 I wouldn't recommend it just because of the smell
Alexis from RI
This hairspray works great! Very easily brushed out without leaving hair feeling greasy or sticky. Great hold for curls and my hair REFUSES to curl!
works well smells awful
kristiannanw from upstate ny
i really like this hairspray but it legit smells like old lady perfume very strongly. i'm glad to see they have an unscented kind. i would give it a better rating if it had a better fragrance.
did not hold well & smelled bad
Lisa from Sanford, FL
I applied this product twice to curled hair. The curls did not stay for more than 2 hrs, even with second application and my hair felt crunchy (not soft) after application. I also did not like the smell. I have thick hair so that may have influenced the efficacy of this product. It may work better for people with thinner hair.
I don't get the hype.
Lara from Naples, Florida.
I first discovered this when I lived in Germany in the 80s. I didn't care for it and it still smells like bug spray! Kenra 25 hairspray is what I use also John Frieda volume hairspray is Excellent one of my newest discoveries!
Overdid it maybe...
Izleys from IL
I wanted a hairspray that would my hair in humid weather and this does that easily. I have thick natural shoulder length hair that I like to have blown out and often struggle with it keeping after a fresh blowout. I just finished a hairspray that smelled nice, didn't stick and smelled great but didn't hold as strong as I'd like. Found this in the back of my cabinet and was impressed immediately as the hold. Not too crazy about the smell but the worst part was the dryness of my ends. I had to wash my hair to get rid of it and hope it didn't do any damage. Giving the remaining to my nieces.
I will buy this product again
Patty from Houston

The only hairspray I use
Brittany from Houston,Texas
My favorite hair spray in the world, been using for 5 years!
Smells awful - the actual product is good
gin from Fallbrook
Unable to comment much more than this since the awful smell really lingers and made me want to re-wash my clean hair! I would NEVER buy this product for that reason. Why don't they make an unscented one????
