Big Sexy Hair Spritz & Stay Handles Snooki Poofs with Ease

Published in: Hair

Need big hair in a hurry (heck, you never know)? Big Sexy Hair to the rescue!


Get long-lasting shine and touchable hold in a heartbeat (or so the company claims) with new Spritz & Stay ($15) non-aerosol hairspray. It’s formulated with “fast-dry technology” to (you guessed it) dry f a s t .


I needed help locking down the volume of my Snooki poof yesterday, and Big Sexy did the deed. I can’t tell if it dries any quicker than other styling products, but I like the hold. It certainly kept my poof nice and high! πŸ™‚

With hold like this, my hair isn’t exactly blowing in the wind — which reminds me, I love the fruit punch scent — but it doesn’t feel crunchy or cemented in place, either.

Available at most beauty supply stores and also online.

    Hi Karen,

    I’ve been a daily follower of your blog (which is amazing btw), and just wanted to say that your blush today looks amazing! which product are you using?

  3. stalkthepostman says:

    I heart the whole look you have going on here…..I can’t pull off the poof, but you look so fresh and youthful! Your skin looks amazing πŸ™‚ What are you wearing on your cheeks – anything? Bronzer?

    For some reason your post took be back and it reminded me of hair net. Omg, i use to use that stuff back in the ’90s in middle school. It was sticky, crunchy and it kept my perm un place. Memories Lol

    • Karen says:

      Haha, I totally know what you’re talking about. I remember going into the girl’s bathroom during break and there being a visible haze of Aqua Net in the air!

    Fruit punch scent? You sold me right there. I love when things smell yummy and fruity. And that poof looks awesome on you. You should do that more often.

    id like a case pls! πŸ˜€ my fine hair needs this!

    • Karen says:

      Hee hee! Do you ever do big hair? I hear it’s the thing out there in Texas!

      • Nina says:

        hardly ever — the most recent one was during my cousin’s birthday. it was a huge event and my aunt hired a makeup guy/gay to do our hair and makeup. he gave me big curls – my hair was almost waist lenght then and he had loads of fun curling it! πŸ˜€

        it was sooooooo crazy and soooo Texan! πŸ˜›

  8. NeenaJ says:

    LOL! At first glance, it looks like you’re rocking a mullet! Thanks for brightening up my afternoon.

  9. Shannon says:

    I’m especially loving the gloss, Karen! Is it something peachy-tinted?

  10. Ruchita says:

    I have some Big Sexy Hair volumizing shampoo that I really like. I found it at a Filene’s Basement store though, so I’m not sure if that means they are not making the product any more.

    I like the brand, so once I finish my ginormous bottle of Kenra hair spray I will have to try this. I like that it smells of fruit punch. Yummy!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruchita,

      They make some cool products. Do you flat iron? They make this really awesome heat protectant/flat iron spray.

      • Ruchita says:

        Yep, I do flat iron my hair pretty often and right now I’m using an awesome product called Sebastian Trilliant. I love trying out new hair products though, so I will definitely try more of their products. πŸ™‚

        • Karen says:

          Oh wow, I haven’t used Sebastian in YEARS. I used to be a Molding Mud girl back in the day. πŸ™‚

          Funny you should mention flat ironing, because I’m about to do that right now!

          • Ruchita says:

            I just recently bought the Trilliant product based on a reccomendation from a sales associate. It has these tiny sparkles in it which makes my hair super shiny. I almost feel like I have shampoo commercial hair. πŸ™‚

    Karen, first thing I thought when I saw this update was, “Dang, she’s got it goin ON!” In short, your hair looks great like that!

    Happy Tuesday by the way. Hope your week is going okay!

    • Karen says:

      Thanks, Kristen. Okay, apparently I need to start rockin’ the Snooki poof on the regular. πŸ™‚

      My Tuesday’s been great so far. How’s yours been?

      • Kristen says:

        I can’t complain. πŸ˜€ Today is a day off for me, so I spent some time relaxing in the bath, doing the homework I haven’t had time for and veggin’ out infront of the TV.

        And yeah, the Snooki poof, when pulled off correctly, looks great! I wish my sleek, thick hair would stay voluminous without looking like I was stuck out in the heat after a rainstorm. Unfortunately, unless I straighten it, my hair has a mind of its own, chemical chemistry be damned!

        • Karen says:

          Ahh, nice. I love days off when you can catch up stuff AND relax. Did you watch any good shows? Lately I’ve been into random reality TV — Dancing With the Stars (LOL), The Buried Life (which is actually really interesting and funny) and Top Chef: Just Desserts. My brain is turning into mush…

  12. Myr says:

    You look amazing here!

  13. Kim says:

    That’s good news about the spray! I’ve tried their volumizing shampoo and conditioner before and they turned my hair to straw after one use. They have such a large range of products that some are bound not to be winners for everyone, though.

  14. Megan says:

    Girl, I gotta tell ya, your skin looks amazing. I know this is a hair post, but I just had to comment on your face. haha! What skin products do you use?

  15. Steph K says:

    I love the poof! It looks awesome! How’d you do it?

      I lived through the ’80s (which was a time of big hair) so it wasn’t that hard because I’ve had a lot of practice, LOL!

      In a nutshell: spritz the roots, use a brush to hold ’em up, blow dry until they’re standing, and then shape the rest of the bangs by popping a brush behind them and molding the bangs over the brush (a barrel brush helps). Then mist with hairspray to seal it all in place.

    I like this hair on you! Would you recommend this hairspray for everyday volume? Or just for poofs like this?
