Hair sprays easily fall in the frenemies category. We loath them about as much as we need them. This is particularly true of hair professionals who carry them around everywhere.
With the intention of running a clean air set / backstage area, Antonin .B has created this spray that is free from polymers, PEGs or any aerosol delivery system.
The Backstage Cocktail Street Fix hair spray is a vegan, 100% nature-sourced, organic hairspray that pulls its strengths from plant distillates (hydrosols) and plant extracts as well as brown sugar and rum from the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe.
This cocktail gives individual strands of hair texture and body, creating the appearance of thicker, fuller looking hair. It also creates grip without the unpleasant grit. It can be used to sleek the hair down or to create a lift at the roots and volume on the lengths; all with a light to medium buildable hold.

Who is this product best suitable for?
The Street Fix hair spray is suitable for all hair types: long, short, thin, thick, straight, frizzy, curly or afro.
I am a man. Will it work for me?
Yes. Men with thin hair like it for the appearance and feel of added bulk and density to their hair.
I see alcohol in the formula. Will it dry my hair out?
No. There is just enough of it to keep the formula stable and clean for months. Also, alcohol is a defatting agent, not a drying agent and we have included moisturizing ingredients in the formula to balance any potential drying effect (like aloe vera and vegetable glycerin).
Is Street Fix vegan?
Yes. The Street Fix hair spray is vegan. It contains no animal derived ingredient.
Is Street Fix cruelty free?
Absolutely. Antonin .B is a certified cruelty-free brand.
Street Fix bears our signature scent. It is constructed on a sensual and vaguely powdery base of organic ylang-ylang flower distillate. Rising from the base, comes a crispy fresh heart of lemon and lime peel surrounded with the spicy and rounded notes of palmarosa and Bourbon geranium.
The whole is enhanced by the fresh and slightly fruity scent of rum. We have selected a rum from Guadeloupe that goes through a premium distillation process which filters out any bitterness and only keeps the sweet and sharp notes.
It is our modern interpretation of the green experience: sensual, fresh and light. And it is suitable for both women and men.
Spray at the roots on 5 to 10 cm and scrunch with an upward movement.
For maximum volume
Spray at the roots on 5 to 10 cm (more if you feel like it). Lean forward and blow dry going upwards.
Spray the area you wish to target. Let air dry or use a diffuser for better, more immediate results. Add more hold by adding more product.
The intention behind the Backstage Collection was to bring forth more family history and traditions from the Caribbean. That is why Street Fix contains premium rum from Guadeloupe.
Traditionally, women add a little bit of rum to their homemade hair masks in order to add shine to their hair — the lovely fresh and fruity scent imparted by the rum is an added bonus.
I also included brown sugar for texture and hold. But this particular cane sugar carries a special meaning in my family history. It comes from the plantation where my grandfather and his younger brother used to work: one as a mechanic, the other as a truck driver.
Our products contain no GMOs and no synthetic ingredients (even the safe ones).
We do use science and green innovation in our products but only if the process does not create pollution and if we can keep our products 100% nature-sourced.
We are a cruelty free brand. Everything we do, we do with love.
The list of ingredients is a simple combination of effective botanicals and cultural gems.
Premium rum from Guadeloupe (with a special distillation process that filters out the bitterness and only keeps its sweet and freshly sharp notes) for shine.
Guadeloupean brown sugar and sea salt create hold and grip; giving the hair more texture and body.
Nettle leaves are distillated into a hydrosol that is rich in vitamins A and C as well as a long list of minerals which help strengthen the hair and make it shiny. It also helps regulate sebum production and fights dandruff.
Bamboo stems and leaves are distillated into a hydrosol that is very rich in silica and creates a smooth finish on the hair. Applied to the scalp, it is soothing and acts like a micro dose of dry shampoo.
Aloe very and vegetable glycerin respectively nourish and moisturize the hair.
Street Fix is infused with ylang-ylang essential oil to fortify and add shine; as well lemon, lime, palmarosa and Bourbon geranium to detoxify and purify.
