An Iconic Hairspray Stops Playing Hard-To-Get

A big part of the intrigue attached to L’Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray has been its elusiveness. A European favorite for decades, it wasn’t sold in the US, forcing American hairstylists, beauty editors and the generally obsessed to smuggle it into the country. So now that Elnett is available at your local Target, has the appeal faded?

In a word, no.

Even though the thrill of the chase is gone, it’s impossible to not be impressed by Elnett. There’s a reason it’s been beauty-expert contraband for so many years: it’s one of the best hairsprays-if not the best-in the world.

It says right on the fabulously retro can that it “disappears at the stroke of a brush,” and it really does. No other hairspray is quite as brushable and easily manipulated as Elnett, making it a must for women who change their mind in the middle of styling. And yet, once you lock in your chosen look with this mighty mist, it’s strong hold-or extra-strong hold, depending on which version you purchased-keeps your hair in the shape you envisioned, locking out style-melting humidity.

That kind of performance is enough to keep the Elnett legend alive. But if you still want the feeling of smuggling a case, you can order as many as 99 at a time from target.com.
