Sometimes, the most unlikely household objects can be surprisingly useful when it comes to creating the perfect hairstyle, like a toothbrush, for example. Yes, that's right, the humble toothbrush is capable of more than just keeping your pearly whites in tip top condition!

So, what can it do for your hair?

1/ Tame baby hairs

Baby hairs often pop up around the hairline as a result of humidity, or just because they feel like it, but you can totally show them who's boss. All you need to do is mist a toothbrush with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and smooth the bristles over any stubborn, wispy hairs to tack them down.

2/ Tame flyaways

As with baby hairs, apply Bold Control Hairspray to a toothbrush and run it over any flyaways to tame them, wherever they are on your head.

3/ Add texture

One of the easiest ways to add texture to any braid or updo is with a toothbrush. After spritzing your finished style with Bold Control Hairspray, gently back brush the hair in small movements with a toothbrush to create a delicately mussed look.

4/ Apply gel

To create a statement hairstyle with mixed textures, use a toothbrush to apply Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel accurately to the desired areas.

5/ Apply temporary highlights

If you're experimenting with temporary pastel highlights, regular highlights or hair chalk, use a toothbrush to apply your chosen product. It will help you to contain and control the color as it goes on.
