The right haircut sets the stage for style, but the right products are what really make it shine. Used and praised by professionals and customers like you, here's a list of ten best sellers and stylist favorites. It’s, shall we say, comprehensive—so we’ll just get to it. Read on to see what you should keep on hand.

Biolage Colorlast Shampoo & Conditioner

Famous for: keeping your hue true

Coloring your hair can be a gamble. If you play your cards right, you’ll rock your fresh shade all season long. If not, you’ll find yourself back for a retouch before the month is up. Luckily, Biolage Colorlast Shampoo and Conditioner can keep the odds in your favor. The shampoo's low PH formula seals the pigments within your strands while the conditioner helps repair their cuticles from color treatment damage. Inspired by nature’s fade-defying orchid, the active ingredients boost and maintain the strength of each shade, enhancing the vibrancy, to ensure your color stays salon-fresh. Pick up this paraben-free duo at your next visit to keep your hue true for up to nine weeks.

Kenra Volume Spray 25

Famous for: indestructible, imperishable hold

When it comes to ranking the best hairsprays, the competition is stiff, but Kenra Volume Spray 25 can hold its own—through anything, really. Humidity, rain, heat, snow, wind… it’s as if nothing can break its hold. Pushing the limits of space, time, and physics, this haircare hero provides the maximum amount of volume that science allows (or so we're guessing), keeping your strands in place for up to 120 hours (that’s five days), no matter what life throws at you. With 24-hour high humidity protection and wind resistance in speeds up to 25MPH, you’d think this fast-drying formula would have to be some sort of aerosol cement to live up to its promises; however, you’d be wrong. One quick spray leaves hair looking light and lustrous while imparting the strength necessary to secure your style for hours—no, days to come. Sound too good to be true? See for yourself. Pick it up the next time you're at SmartStyle.

Kenra Platinum Texturizing Taffy

Famous for: fantastic fragrance

Fragrance lovers, this one’s for you. Make waves, skirt the stiffness, and fight off frizz with a lightweight formula that looks every bit as good as it smells.

In fact, Kenra Platinum Texturizing Taffy is known for its natural feel. The pliable, fiber-like formula smooths, sculpts, and separates your strands with ease, preserving your style with a soft, matte finish—and incredible scent.

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum

Famous for: smooth, swift-drying style

We’ll let you in on a little salon-industry intel. One of the secrets to the perfect blowout? Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. This crystal-clear potion can give you some salon-blowout beauty from the luxury of your own home—no appointment needed. The slippery, lightweight formula coats each strand with a signature cocktail of conditioning agents, shine-enhancers, and cyclomethicone—the technical term for "hair-smoothing magic." Just one pump yields a smoother, shinier, speedier blowout that slightly smells like watermelon (in the best of ways).
