Clear Crowning GloryA: There's a reason we keep our contributing editors on speed dial! We posed this excellent question to floral and event designer Matthew Robbins—founder of Matthew Robbins Design. The bad news: Matthew confirmed that the ingredients in most hairsprays can actually bruise and damage petals. The good news: he let us in on an industry secret called Clear Crowning Glory by Floralife. It's one part hydration, one part protection, and all parts clear and residue-free. Amazon carries it, and a 32-oz bottle will run you just under $20 with shipping, or head to the manufacturer's website to find your closest retailer. You can spritz this on your bouquet, boutonnières, head wreaths, centerpieces, garlands, and so on, and save the hairspray for that updo!

And just a reminder, we have an awesome hub for all things that go bloom ...
