Mousse, which is ideal for fine and/or thin hair,  adds a fuller appearance to any hairstyle ranging from a short sassy bob to shoulder length waves.

Mousse coats individual strands with polymers which will even give extra to much longer soft ringlets.

3.  Hair stiffening products - Fine tune hair knots, buns and updos by finishing with a blast of styling spray.   Tame flyaway strands around the hairline with a range of hair stiffening hairsprays.  Spritz spray onto fingertips or a clean toothbrush and smooth onto hair.

4.  Shine Enhancers - Turn up the shimmer on hair knots, chignons, buns and assorted updos with a combination of shine sprays.  Spritz the product onto the palms of the hands, massage together and then lightly swipe over the top of the finished hairstyles.

A little bit goes a very long way.  Sometimes these styling miracles are referred to as finishing products.
