I'm now styling my chewbacca mask and I am using extra strong hold hair spray. Just wondered how much hair spray you guys use before the hair starts to hold its position? I realise that this will be an on going grooming process but the thought popped into my head and I thought I'd ask

It depends on the hair spray and how much hair you have.

My current mask hair is too long, so it takes a couple of sprits of fudge cement every couple of troops.

Fudge cement is the stuff you want. It's really the best.

My experience for styling the mask has been it is a combination of strategic use of thinning shears, a spray bottle of water, Fudge Hair Cement, which is da bomb!, and short brown hairpins.

With the Hair Cement, do a light spray, let it dry, then another light spray, and let that dry. Hope this helps. May The Force Be With You.
