Keeping up a ‘do needs the proper hairspray essentials—hold, shine and…scent? Most hairsprays are scentless or have a slightly chemical smell, but Sugar Scents claims to be the all-in-one finishing spray with a “scentsational” twist. 


Want your hair to smell like Bubblegum, Coconut Cream, Cherries Jubilee, or Lavender Cupcake—then Sugar Scents may be the hairspray for you. The all-in-one-hairsprays are infused with panthenol & BV5 for moisture and to give hair a shiny, vibrant appearance. 

Sugar Scents founder, Kimberly Hebert grew up in the go-go ‘80s where big hair, big dreams and big shoulder pads were the hot thing of the day. This experience and her lifelong passion for a hairspray styling product that smelled as good as it works began. 



Working a day job but also working to realize her dream, Kimberly used her own funds and consulted labs with her hair-criteria and business smarts to develop a spray that not only holds, protects, and moisturizes but smells good, too. 

The spray cans are colorful, and the product is cruelty-free, plant-based, sulfate-free, paraben free and vegan—and smells good!

I tried the Bubblegum hair spray—and it smelled…like bubble gum. I wanted to try the less sweet-sounding smell—lavender cupcake—but it wasn’t available. I’m used to a mega-hold hairspray like Tigi Bed Head Hard Head, so I gave Sugar Scents a whirl and I did find it had medium hold and did make my hair shine.



It was pleasant to smell a sweeter smell other than the alcohol of most hairsprays, but I would like to try a less sweet smell when available. Maybe since the product is eco-conscious, a strawberry, mango or lemon-lime might be on the horizon. In the meantime, I’m waiting to try the lavender cupcake.
