Styling cream: the versatile ally

Styling creams prove to be a flexible companion in the realm of hair styling.  They offer control and hold while maintaining a natural look. Ideal for all hair types, our range of styling creams provide moisture, shine, and manageability. 

Achieve a stylish and effortlessly messy look with L'Oréal's Studio Matt And Messy Shine Free Fibre Paste 8, which work wonders for taming frizz, defining curls, and creating sleek and sophisticated styles. Start with dry or slightly damp hair and warm a small amount of the product between your palms. Apply the paste to the desired areas, focusing on creating texture and definition. Style your hair using your fingers or a comb, experimenting with different techniques for your desired look. Finish with a light hairspray for extra hold, and enjoy your long-lasting, matte hairstyle throughout the day.

For those seeking a more relaxed and casual vibe, try Moroccanoil’s Molding Cream for natural-looking texture. Enriched with moisturising argan and olive oils, the nourishing formula offers versatility as a leave-in shaper, allowing you to create gentle structure and definition. With this cream, you can effortlessly achieve beach waves or tousled bed head looks. 

Wax: Sculpt and Define

When it comes to sculpting and defining your hair, wax is the ultimate go-to product. Its pliable texture allows for precise shaping, making it ideal for creating textured looks, defining short haircuts, or adding separation and structure to longer styles. Whether you're aiming for a sleek pompadour or a tousled, effortlessly messy look, wax offers exceptional control and a desirable matte finish. At My Hair and Beauty, we offer a range of waxes to suit your desired style and hair type. Insight Professional’s Styling Elastic Molding Wax is a popular choice known for its versatility and hold, while the Angel Helichrysum Shine Styling Wax adds a touch of shine to your finished look. 

Gel: the classic staple

Gel is an essential and timeless component when it comes to achieving long-lasting hold. From slicked-back looks to sleek updos, gel ensures your style stays intact throughout the day. It's important to remember that a little goes a long way with gel, as using too much can result in a stiff or crunchy texture. 

If you have curly hair, the Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curling Gel Souffle is a game-changer in your hair care routine. The nourishing coconut oil and hibiscus flower extract components work harmoniously to provide your curls with the care they deserve while defining them and reducing frizz.

What sets this gel apart is its lightweight consistency, which delivers a flexible hold, allowing your curls to bounce and flourish without any unpleasant stiffness or crunchiness. Or for that perfect balance between definition and softness, try the Ancient Egyption Glistening Gold Twisting Gel by The Mane Choice, known for its superior hold and added shine. 

Foam: Bounce and Volume

If you desire bounce and volume, foam is your best friend. Known as mousse in the hairstyling world, this product works wonders by adding body and lift without weighing down your locks. Foam is particularly effective for fine or thin hair, as it provides structure and helps maintain the shape of your desired style. 

Milk shake’s Lifestyling Blow Dry Primer Lotion is specifically designed to provide maximum hold, volume, and protection during the blow-drying process. Enriched with a unique blend of active ingredients, including quinoa proteins and milk proteins, this primer lotion nourishes and strengthens your hair while reducing frizz and enhancing shine. 

Whether you want big, glamorous curls or a voluminous blowout, foam can help you achieve a salon-worthy look. Take a look at our assortment of foams to find the right one for your desired level of volume and control.  

Holding products: lock it in place

When you need your hairstyle to withstand the test of time, holding products come to the rescue. Hairsprays or setting sprays, to name a couple, provide a long-lasting hold to keep your style intact throughout the day or night. Whether you're attending a special event or need your hair to stay put in tumultuous weather conditions, holding products ensure your hard work doesn't go to waste. 

For a vibrant and long-lasting hold, consider the Silhouette Color Brilliance Hairspray Super Hold from Schwarzkopf. This colour protection spray not only secures your style, but also safeguards your hair colour, ensuring it remains vibrant and radiant.

If you prefer a versatile and flexible hold, the Insight Styling Elastic Fibre Paste is an excellent choice. This elastic paste allows you to mold and shape your hair with ease, creating a variety of styles while maintaining a natural-looking finish. 

For those seeking a strong hold with a matte finish, the Indie Hair Wreck-It Putty Clay is the perfect option. This clay-based formula provides texture, definition, and a reliable hold for a variety of styles. Or if you desire a high-shine finish and pliable hold, the Osmo High Shine Modern Pomade with Beeswax offers flexibility, allowing you to reshape your hair throughout the day while maintaining a glossy sheen.

Browse through our collection to find the one that suits your specific styling needs, so you can confidently lock your style in place and enjoy a flawless look that lasts. 

Volumising products: amp up the volume


For those looking to add extra oomph to their hair, volumising products are your secret weapon. From enhancing natural curls to providing weightless volume and maximum body, achieving volumising and enviable styles has never been easier.

If you have natural curls that exude volume, the Design Essentials Natural Curl Enhancing Mousse is a must-try. This lightweight mousse enhances your curls while providing a long-lasting hold, giving you beautifully defined and voluminous curls.

The Milk Shake Whipped Cream Leave-In Foam is a delightful option for those seeking weightless volume. This leave-in foam adds texture, body, and shine to your hair without weighing it down, leaving you with effortlessly volumised locks.

If you're in search of maximum body and fullness, the Paul Mitchell Extra-Body Sculpting Foam provides a strong hold, giving your hair incredible lift and lasting volume throughout the day.
