PROPS: Hairspray spray.
« on: Sep 04, 2015, 01:55 pm »
We're currently a month out from our production of hairspray and we're still trying to figure out which kind of spray to use. We've looked at dry shampoo and moisturizing spray, but neither of those would be good for set/costumes/mics/lights. I was just wondering what some other options may be that are cheaper, as our next plan is to order from the supplier that makes the Ultra clutch "spray" and it's 12 bucks a can.

Thanks!

When I did Hairspray about 5 years ago (wow) we used a "professional haze" product by Fantasy FX (we found it at filmtools.com). Just give their website a search for Fantasy FX and it pops right up.

I actually have a can on my shelf above my desk and just gave it a quick shake and spray and it looks as great as I remember.

The same company apparently makes fake hairspray for just this purpose. See http://amzn.com/B00GHXGFAI

(Sidenote: the "also purchased with this item" items crack me up.)

Have you checked the BTDT? There are a slew of folks who've done the show to ask -

Good call on the FX spray, I've alerted our director, props master, and producer. Thanks! :)
