The case for a mist for your mane: It refreshes day-old hair, it typically lacks strand-drying alcohol (unlike most traditional scents)—and it’s a good substitute for heavy perfume in warm weather.

2 Show Beauty Decadence Hair Fragrance ($85; Bergdorf Goodman) is a spicy-floral blend created by top fragrance “noses.”

3 Fekkai Hair Fragrancein Rose Fraîche ($20; fekkai​​.com) borrows sweet, floral notes from the brand’s popular Technician Color Care line.
