Product Review: Oscar Blandi Lacca Hairspray

About a month ago, Oscar Blandi launched a brand-new medium hold aerosol hairspray called Lacca ($23). What sets this styling product apart from the crowd is the scent, the ingredients and its anti-static properties. Not only can you use this to keep your hair in place, it can also double as a static guard (a little trick for ya).

We've talked about beauty advice from our mothers, but how about from our fathers? Oscar Blandi says that his source of inspiration for creating Lacca came from watching his dad make home-made hair products at the family's Italian salon.


This spray is formulated with sugar and honey to help control frizz, add shine and leave hair touchable and move-able all without being sticky (I was a little afraid of this). The smell is to die for. At first I wasn't impressed with the hint-of-honeysuckle, mostly chemical aroma, but once it dries, it leaves behind a pleasantly sweet essence.

I adore the huge mist button so you can cover your whole head easily and evenly. I also love what it does when you spray a little bit into the roots, (kind of like a volumizer). It's a great way to add body to fine hair without weighing it down when you're aiming for runway hair. The only trait I can't attest to is that it's moisturizing. Even though that's what the label says, my hair didn't feel any softer or more hydrated after a few uses. Oh well, can't win 'em all.
