De Lorenzo Granite Hairspray

An Unlikely Recipe for Hair

De Lorenzo Granite Super Hold Hairspray

Australian hair care brand De Lorenzo has recently launched their ‘Granite’ Super Hold Hair Spray, a non-aerosol finemist hairspray.  The non-aerosol form delivers an instant, firm, anti-humidity hold allowing for more structured control when styling. It also acts as an ideal finishing product as it imbues hair with shine and luminosity. Unlike aerosol cans, the non-aerosol applicator emits less product, therefore ensuring the product will last longer.


The advantage of the ‘Granite’ spray lies within its ingredients. With cinnamon oil, fig essence and basil extract, this spray utilises an unlikely combination to create a styling essential. Natural Rock Crystals are the key ingredient, as they provide texture and shine are sought and then ground together to obtain rock crystal powder. Castor oil is then used to help distribute the strong holding agents while increasing shine.

As is true of all De Lorenzo products, the ‘Granite’ spray is cruelty-free, made of organic and fair trade ingredients and is 100% Australian made and owned.

Long and Luscious Wedding Hair by Showpony

Creating the perfect hairstyle for the big day can be tricky, especially if your hair is suffering the effects from pre-wedding day stress. A secret that top Australian hair- stylist Caterina Di Biase shares with us, is that the key to creating a beautiful ‘updo’
is lots of long, full hair! Not something we are all blessed with but Caterina advises brides to be to consider having permanent extensions put into their hair a week prior to their big day.


This gives the bride enough time to adjust to her new fuller and longer hairstyle and means that she will be able to enjoy her new hair through her honeymoon as well. The hottest looks at the moment for brides are elegantly dishelved buns and chi- gnons, sometimes with a little detail like a braided section entertwined as we have seen on the catwalks and red carpets of late. This look is infinitely easier to recreate when you have lots of long hair to work with.” Says Caterina.


Showpony Professional permanent hair extensions can cost anywhere between $250 for 10 pieces up to $700 for a full head or 40 pieces and can be colour matched perfectly to any hair colour thanks to a unique two-tone colour strand feature.
