As its name suggests, salon hair spray is hair spray sold in salons. Usually, salons sell two types of hair spray that are commonly referred to as salon hair sprays. The first consists of hair spray formulas designed or endorsed by recognized hairdressers or brands, and the second includes hair spray formulas created by the salon. When comparing salon hair spray to other commercial brands, customers often find designer and salon versions are of higher qualities, provide superior results, and are more expensive. Yet, sometimes salon sprays end up on department store shelves, which often lowers their price tags but also reflects their performance level.
It’s common for well-know hairdressers to develop or endorse their own lines of hair products. Often, but not always, these product lines start in salons. There, they gain popularity with and loyalty from both stylists and customers. Typically, salons encourage their stylists to use these products as well as sell them to customers. Usually, designer salon hair spray and other styling products are more expensive than other kinds of hair products, but, depending on the brand, they are often better quality, too.
Small, locally owned salons tend to use the kinds of designer hair spray and other products marketed by famous hairdressers. Larger salons, on the other hand, often create their own product lines. This doesn’t mean these salons shun designer products, but it does mean they’ve established themselves enough to produce their own lines of products. Often, the hairdressers at a particular salon will use the salon hair spray and other products when styling customers’ hair. Not only does this show the customers how well the products work, but it also helps the salons sell their house brands in addition to the designer brands.
Note that salon products aren’t always exclusive to salons. For example, a designer hair spray might start out in a salon, but eventually make its way to department stores, drug stores, and other in-person and online retail locations that sell grooming and styling products. Sometimes, this happens because the products don’t sell well when limited to hair salons. Other times, it happens because the company simply wants to branch out and reach a larger customer base. Whether the price, quality, or both changes once a salon product enters a larger commercial market varies, so customers might find their former salon-exclusive products are less expensive, but also of lesser quality.
