Wow! Can't believe the negative reviews for this product. In all my life, this is the best hair product I've ever used - by a very wide margin.
My hair is incredibly THIN, and FINE, and PIN STRAIGHT -- a really bad combination, unless you're a fan of invisible hair. My hair is usually blunt cut at chin length & only looked good for ~30 minutes after removing rollers. At 31 minutes, it was flat & lifeless.
I decided my hair would look better w/layers & I knew how I wanted it, but after months of looking for photos online, couldn't find any the way I wanted it. And I couldn't draw it, so I picked up the scissors & did it myself. So now it's a short shag.
Enter B&B Styling Wax.
When my hair is 99% dry, I roll it up in plastic rollers, then do my makeup, check my email, etc. After an hour or 2 I take out the rollers, put about 1/8 tsp (no more!) of the Styling Wax in my palm (very easy to get it out of jar!) & rub my palms & fingers together to distribute the thinnest film of wax all over hands, then I just scrunch my freshly-curled hair all over for about 30 seconds. MIRACULOUS. My invisible hair is now bold & stacks up on top of itself all over for a fabulous magazine look. And, the next day, the curls are more like soft waves, but they're still there.
This product has given me so much confidence because I finally have wonderful, gorgeous, really full-looking hair. It looks thick!! I promise you. I cannot recommend this highly enough. If it cost twice as much, I wouldn't mind a bit. The tin will last forever & I finally have the hair I've always wanted. Happy, happy, happy.

I was disappointed to see poor reviews. I just cut my hair into a short shag, this really seems to work well. I will update when my hair gets a bit longer. But for now, yes I would buy again.

This is the perfect product for my wavy, fine hair that I never blow dry or really do anything to. The only downside and the reason I won't buy it again is that I don't like the scent. It's not particularly offensive, but it bugs me. Kind of like handsoap....hospital handsoap. Just odd.
But other than that, it gives fantastic volume, hold, and texture for a piecy look. Also very good for sleeking down baby hairs at the hairline and all those crazy flyaways. Gives moderate shine, nothing greasy though.

Nice texture, great to make a piecy look on a pixie cut. If you use too much, stuff tends to stick to it, so watch out for that. Very overpriced, that's my big complaint.

I love this for taming frizzies. A little on my fingertips goes a long way. I like this better than SumoWax, which is a little greasy and heavy for my hair. Also, with SumoWax, you have to heat it up to melt it. You can heat up Styling Wax if you want to, but if I just glide my fingertips over the surface, I will get enough soft wax to add a little texture to fringe or seal a few dry ends. This works nicely when used sparingly to make the hair piecey (play up texture). If you just use a little it's not heavy at all. Sumotech is a good pomade that isn't greasy, but Sumotech has a matte finish. I like the subtle shiny finish of Styling Wax.

For those stating they have trouble getting the product out of the container ----- point your hair dryer into the container for a few seconds - this softens the product a bit. Don't hold it there for too long.

This is nice for selecting out pieces and tips, especially in shorter styles. Also to scrunch up under layers of hair for volume. It is light weight, but like any wax, can be over-done, esp on fine hair. You really just use a film of this. If you over-work your hair with this (or any wax), it can end up flat and dirty looking. It washes right out, smells light, softens easily w/ warmth of hands. While I have no regrets in buying, it was overpriced at $30. Since I use so little wax at a time, I will get plenty of millage out of this one tin.

I don't know what people are talking about - I never had a problem getting this product out of its tin. In fact, I thought it was very soft compared to some of the cheap drugstore brands my mom kept buying me.
I used to LOVE this wax when I had a super-chunky style. My hair is extremely thick, and lends itself well to that type of look. I'd just take a few daubs of it, work it in all over the place, then run my hands through from underneath to give it a little more volume & messiness.
Granted, I think that part of the success I had with this wax was that I only relied on it to give me the chunky look. I suspect that where others went wrong was in using too much, and expecting the wax to make the style for them... you really have to have the right haircut to get a good piecey feel.

Extremely hard wax. Difficult to get out of jar. It is also very greasy.

I am so sad to see the bad reviews for this product. I would place this in my HG list.
I have been using it for almost 7-8 years, and my husband does to. I love the 'weight' of it and that it washes off your hands and out of your hair with no residue.

This stuff is awesome.It's perfect for making my ends a bit piecier and taming my bangs.Great for taming flyaways,too.Cute tin!

i loove this wax, it gives great definition to my layers. it adds great texture as well. soft smell and a little goes a long way. it doesnt leave hair looking or feeling greasy, and it also allows for movement. other waxes that i have tried left my feeling really stiff. but this stuff is great. it makes my ends look healthier because it also imparts a little shine. i may not repurchase because i recently bought a pomade from aveda, which has more nutrients than this product. ill have to see how aveda goes before i decide to repurchase this.

This styling wax is to be used with extreme caution. Even the smallest amount goes a long way and too much will make your hair look greasy and flat. Dab your fingertip with a little wax then rub it between your palms to melt it down, then finger comb through your hair and style as desired. I think this may be good if you're trying to tame your curls or fly away ends and don't want them to look frizzy.

At one time this product was way overhyped in the mags, so that is why I bought it. The tin is so cute and looks like solid crisco. I wanted to give my bob that peicey look but it just looked greasy. I think it's a decent product but you just better have your technique perfected to make it work. Unfortunatly I am hair impaired and therefore could not make it work for me. I prefer BTZ's Get-N-Creamed which gives you a little more room for error. Would not repurchase.

This is definately my fav product for short spikey do's.
It gives great separation and is perfect for that messy look!

I keep coming back to this stuff. I am a hair product junkie, and I have always been seeking one single product that I can put on my hair and it will look great all day. This is it. I have short, curly, generally dry hair that is in a pixie type cut. I like that this wax does not build up in my hair like some of the TiGi BedHead products. The scent is very light and practically unnoticeable. I also use B&B shampoo/conditioner, and I feel like those products plus this wax make a good combo. UPDATE: I recently began using Aveda Control Paste, which I like much better--and I need to use a lot less at once. SECOND UPDATE: I switched to Pantene's Texture & Shine Pomade, which does a better job than either the B&b OR the Aveda, and is a fraction of the price. Check out my review.

With this product you use your fingernail to get a very small amount of product, and warm it up in your hands. I found if you use too much, you are going to get a greasy and weighed down look. This works OK, but recently I tried Redken water wax and it is working much better for me.

I bought this after watching my stylist use this on my hair after every blowdry to make the ends look piecey. I studied his technique and bought a pot of my very own. Alas, the results left much to be desired. Not only did I look like a giant grease head, it make the ends looks stuck together with Elmer's clear glue. Hmmm. I have very fine hair and I wouldn't recommend it if you are not adept at styling hair. I keep staring psychotically into the mirror when he puts it in my hair but I just can't do it myself at home. It is just too sticky and heavy for me to use on my fine hair. I don't know what to do with this gooey pot of sticky-ness now. Car wax?! Should I melt it down and use it as industrial glue? Hmmm. Decisions, decisions.

Yes, I would repurchace- if I weren't trying to grow out my super short pixie hair cut. This was the best product ever for my short hair, it created texture, added shine and overall made my hair look Cute-with a capital C. When I am writing this review it makes me sad that I am growing out my hair and I want to take the siccors and cut it all off right now...

I just cut my hair short again and am unaccustomed to spending any money on styling products, but I must say that this wax does the job. It's not nearly as greasy as pomade, which I like, and texturizes my hair without leaving it crunchy or dry. I also enjoy that the citrus scent is not overwhelmingly sweet or medicinal, as many salon products tend to be. Now I'm worried this little 1.5 oz tin won't last until my next appointment, so I shall certainly be on the lookout for a product that's more reasonably priced.
