The texturising products to try for gorgeously tousled volume
AKA cool-girl hair bottled

If we were to award superlatives to our styling products, texture spray would definitely take out ‘best multitasker’.
Able to add grit, boost body and absorb oil, texturisers have the power to rescue several day old hair from reaching impending ‘dirty’ status, and instead take it into ‘too cool to care’ tousled territory.
And so, now seems as good of a time as any to stock up on the very best styling stars the texturising realm has to offer.
Here are our absolute favourite texturising products, perfect for creating an aesthetic that appears both disheveled and divine.
IGK Beach Club Volumising Texture Spray
It’s safe to say we won’t be seeing the beach for a hot minute (shoutout to winter in isolation), but that doesn’t mean we can’t use this body-builder to replicate the tousled, textured ocean-styled waves we’re missing so dearly.
Kevin Murphy Powder Puff
It’s not easy to find a powder that adds grit and body to hair without leaving behind a powdery finish (sounds like it comes with the territory, right?), but this guy does it, and does it damn well.
Sachajuan Volume Powder
A matte finish hybrid of dry shampoo (our absolute saviour) and a powder-based texturiser, this magic dust offers the ideal balance between a fresh and lived-in aesthetic, leaving hair feeling surprisingly clean while still looking just the right amount of 'dirty'.
Hair by Sam McKnight Cool Girl Barely There Texture Mist
Count Kate Moss among your cool-girl hair idols? Of course you do, you're only human. This weightless mist was created by her hairstylist Sam McKnight, and is heralded as the duo's signature disheveled style in a bottle.
Shu Uemura Art of Hair Texture Wave
Waves don’t have to be sleek to be chic, and this oil-absorbing, mane-mattifying texture spray proves it. So, once your blowout has lost its bounce, use this to take the bends from polished to piecey.
Ouai Dry Texture Foam
Don’t love the residue that powders and sprays can leave in your locks? Give this foamy finish a whirl. It’s infused with rice protein to control frizz and impart a beachy texture that feels the furthest thing from dry.
Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 Texture Spray
You’ll add this dry spray to cart for the texture-refining and body-boosting benefits, but you’ll repurchase repeatedly (and skip shampoos accordingly) for the stunning violet, musk and sandalwood scent it leaves behind.
