Gal Gadot is revered as our modern-day Wonder Woman (literally), so when she steps out, especially at a red carpet event, all eyes are on her. To maintain this signature regality at Sunday’s 2020 Oscars, the actress used Dove’s Extra Hold Hairspray to ensure that her sleek French twist remained neat and on-point throughout the night.

“We went with a very classic look for Gal tonight — a French twist,” he said. “Gal is in a gorgeous gown with a high neckline, accompanied by a large Tiffany diamond necklace, so we wanted to keep her hair sleek and off her neck to showcase the dress.”
While detailing the full six-step prep process for the actress’ awards show hair look, Townsend revealed the unique technique in which he applied the hairspray to tie everything together.
“I coated a reusable wand with Dove Extra Hold Hairspray to tame flyaways, especially in front of the ears and at the nape of the neck, to keep the look super sleek,” he told us.
He also added that while the product boasts reliable, maximum hold, it is just as seamless to remove and does not leave the hair crunchy or dry after hours of wear.
“I have a second glam sesh with Gal for Vanity Fair Oscars party, and because the Dove Extra Hold Hairspray doesn’t leave the hair stiff or crunchy, I’ll be able to take a brush coated in dove Clarifying Dry Shampoo and run through to remove the hairspray and start fresh for the second look of the night,” he added.
In addition to earning this celebrity hairstylist’s stamp of approval, this Dove selection also boasts over 200 5-star reviews from Walmart shoppers, with one dubbing it her “favorite hair spray.”
“With this hair spray, I am not sacrificing quality. It works great and holds all day. The scent is mild and I even find that the quality of the pump is excellent — a fine mist, no spurting or dripping.” she wrote.
Another shopper with “super thick and long hair” even added that this product tamed what she described as “a frizzy nightmare.”
“Many hair sprays can’t tame my hair, so I’ve given up on trying and look a hot mess a lot of the time. This stuff made sure my hair stayed where I wanted it to and my hair stayed that way all day,” she wrote. “Even through sweating… This will definitely be my go-to hairspray.”
