Wall of China

If I had a penny every time I heard a woman say to me: “My hair looked lovely at first and then dropped within an hour” I would be seriously rich!

In the endless sea of hairsprays one can easily drown and end up with a hair messed rather than hair dressed.

When I first started styling hair it was curiosity more than anything that drew me to it.

I watched Nina Butkovich-Budden  recreate the most fabulous vintage hairstyles, from 1900 onward and she would often say, in her fabulous Croatian accent: “ You have to use TRESemmé Freeze Hold! It’s a Wall of China!”

And Miss Budden was right. She had a customer who would travel to Las Vegas annually for a Rockabilly convention and her hairstyle would stay up for a week!

To this day Nina had stayed faithful to the mighty TRESemmé Freeze Hold. At around £5 per 500ml bottle it is the most affordable and best extra firm hold hairspray on the market.

Her second favourite is Oribe’s Superfine Strong Hair Spray .

With it’s fabulous packaging, delicate scent and top quality it is the hairspray for the hair-obsessed.

As I was trained by Miss Budden I stay true to my master’s teachings and continue to use the above mentioned with the occasional casual affair with O&M and Percy & Reed .

So there you are my curious ones, use as directed and enjoy fabulously long lasting hairstyles!


I cannot guarantee that all the skincare and/or haircare products I suggest will work for you. The same applies to the make-up recommendations. I only write about the products I personally have tried and use on myself and my clients. Please keep in mind that the skin is our biggest organ and everyone’s is different. It is possible to be allergic to anything. Whenever possible test products out on yourself before purchasing. 

My views are my own.
