In the 50s, beauty titan Helene Curtis coined the name “hair spray” with the release of her product Spray Net, which became wildly successful, majorly due to the beehives and pin-up dos type of hairstyles that personified the 1950s and 60s. The product was so popular that several books noted that by 1964, hair spray was the most successful beauty product in the country, “outselling even lipstick!”
