Have you tried this trick? What other surefire methods do you use to get rid of pet hair on your furniture?
Yesterday, she twittered that she'd accidentally sprayed hairspray instead of deodorant into her armpits "again." Clearly, it's an issue she's run into before. If you've had the misfortune to mistake one beauty product for another, what did you do to make sure it didn't become a repeat performance? And have you ever had a funny case of product "mistaken identity?"
While I wish the product gave the hair a little more shine, it has a nonsticky finish and sets pretty much instantly. So far I've found that spritzing the Control Force on the ends of my short strands produces a nice wispy texture that stays put. I've also discovered that in lieu of breaking out the hair dryer in the morning, some Control Force sprayed all over my damp strands results in a pretty, nonfrizzy finish about an hour later when I arrive at work.
While I wish the price was a little bit more affordable, at least a little goes a long way with this product. Also, if you're wondering why a company that's known for environmental causes has not just one, but two aerosol hairsprays, the brand promises these products have a net-zero climate impact. What about you? Do you have a favorite heavy-duty spray?
Finding an extra hold hairspray that doesn't look too stiff or flaky can be a challenge. Reader Lbirk has been one busy reviewer these days. Thanks for submitting all of your opinions, lady! Here's what she had to say about Nexxus Maxximum Super Hold Styling and Finishing Spray ($13.50).
Even though Nexxus uses descriptions like "Maxximum" and "super hold," which conjure visions of helmet head, this fine mist spray provides a really touchable hold with lots of shine. It doesn't flake if you need to brush through it for a style refresh during the day, and it doesn't build up. Very nice.

If you have curly hair, it's probably taken you a while to figure out your perfect beauty regimen. Reader Ineedcaffeine uses Aussie Catch the Wave Sprunch Hair Spray ($3.30) in her daily routine, and here's why:
I have very curly hair, and I am very particular about my whole process. I often use different shampoos/conditioners/products each time I wash my hair, but Sprunch Spray is the only thing I use on a daily basis. I use it after I unwrap my hair from a t-shirt, before I go to bed, and before I leave the house in the morning. Just a couple of spritzes, and I get some serious body, hold, and delicious smell. I cannot recommend this product highly enough.

Did you guys hear? The screen musical is back! Well, at least according to Hugh Jackman, who kicked off his Oscar ceremony musical medley on Sunday by talking about the box office success of Mamma Mia!.
I would love to see Mr. Jackman himself singing and dancing in the movies very soon, which got me thinking about musicals that should get a big-screen adaptation while the iron is apparently hot. I think Spring Awakening would be pretty great as a movie, and there's been some buzz for a while about getting Wicked on the big screen as well.
What musicals do you think would make good movies? And do you agree with Jackman that this is a trend worth rooting for?
Back in high school I used so much Rave and Salon Selectives hair spray, I am still rather concerned about my lungs — and the ozone, for that matter. I have to admit, although the packaging and formulation are different now, my thanks go out to Barbiesugar for taking me on a drip down memory lane with her review of Suave 4x Mega Rave Hairspray, Scented ($2.89). Although it wasn't a "rave review," here's what she thought:
"I bought this product right before a wedding in Chicago. I was getting my hair done because I was a bridesmaid, but my grandma and my mother were not, so they were relying on me to do their hair. I picked this mostly for its low cost. I'm used to using 'big hair' and 'super-sticky' hair spray, but this took it to a whole new level. I really think NASA should find out what is in this product because there is some gravity-defying action in here. Needless to say, this was not the product I bargained for. Cons: tacky, no pun intended. Pros: it smelled nice."

Regardless of the haircare sponsor of any show during Fashion Week, stylists pack L'Oreal Elnett hairspray in their bags like contraband. Which it is: The stuff has been banned in the US since 1987 due to the use of ozone-damaging flourocarbon propellants. Until now, that is. With a few small tweaks to the delivery system, L'Oreal is releasing Elnett Satin next month exclusively through Target. Prices range from $6.99 for two ounces to $13.99 for 11 ounces, one variety of which includes a UV filter.
