The word "mousse" might bring back bad memories of crunchy curls and braces for some of us (a regrettable combination, let's not talk about that any more). But Vogue insist the reigning hair product of the '80s is back, and our NY editor agrees, so today we take a look at the new wave of modern mousse products—no scrunching required.

Remember how crunchy, dried out, and, yet, strangely wet that stuff used to make your hair? Yeah, that's a thing of the past. Modern mousses are now hydrating(!), and offer benefits like UV protection, frizz-control and touchable shine. Click through for 10 of the best neauvou-mousse options we could find, then prepare yourself for a summer full of humidity-resistant, voluminous, air-dried hair.—Cleo Zancope
