Best sculpting gels for baby hairs

The adage 'edges on fleek' is still going strong, hence why hair brands have upped their sculpting gel game. Here are our faves...

Hair & Beauty

Hair that has been seemingly super-glued to the head is one of AW19 most standout trends. Granted, the style never completely dissipated from our memory: gelled-down baby hairs have been on fleek for the past few years, becoming the go-to finisher for box braids, lace wigs, topknots – and well, just about any style.

But today’s revival sees a more flamboyant take on the perennial hairdo. Just like the popular 1920’s kiss curl, aka the ‘spit curl’, decorating your forehead, temples and entire head with structural waves and bespoke patterns is the way to garner some serious fashion points this season.
