Beyond the Zone Spike It hair cement – This stuff is thick and gooey! It makes it so you can easily sculpt your hair and make the buns look thicker.
Jerome Russell Temp’ry spray in Dark Brown – I highly recommend this color spray! I’ve been using it for years and it washes out easily and doesn’t stain my blond hair.
