Simone Biles never ceases to amaze us. It's not just her kickass gymnastics skills—it's everything. The gymnast really is the whole package—from her impact on the athletic community down to her trendy white sneakers, Biles is a role model to all of us in so many ways.

While you probably can't copy her jaw-dropping floor routines or signature moves, you can nab something a little easier to obtain, and it's waiting for you right at the neighborhood drugstore (or simply, Amazon). Turns out, Biles' hairspray of choice is Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Hairspray ($4), a budget-friendly hairspray guaranteed to give you gold-medal worthy results.

At this year's VMAs, Biles stunned the red carpet in a gorgeous one-strap light pink dress. While we audibly gasped over her gown, her hair is what really took our breath away—instead of her standard (and practical) Olympic-ready ponytail, the gymnast rocked long, sleek waves slicked at the root for a classic look. Shiny and smooth, there wasn't a flyaway in sight which, according Bile's stylist Ashley Stewart, was thanks to Garnier hairspray.

“My inspiration comes from today’s all American, which is Simone Biles," Stewart said. "She can be sexy, powerful, and confident all while being herself. I wanted to show a simple elegant side of Simone.”

Elegant indeed! Tucked neatly behind her ears, her perfectly styled tendrils showed off her glow-y skin and sparkling smile, making her whole look a 10/10.

While Biles' hair might not be for everyday wear, her hairspray of choice definitely is. At $4, the Sleek & Shine hairspray earns top marks for budget-friendly hairsprays that actually work. It's infused with bamboo extract for extra moisture and TLC on dry strands. While other hairsprays get tacky and ultra-drying, Garnier seals in smoothness and shine without ever making hair tacky or crunchy.

It's also amazing for fighting flyaways. Like we mentioned, Biles' hairstyle was sleek, swapping frizz for smoothness. That's because Garnier Sleek & Shine hairspray is formulated with anti-humidity protection, so when the temps soar or air becomes moist, your style will stay smooth. Whether you're pulling your hair into a high pony for the gym, or curling it into an updo for a special occasion, hair actually stays in place day or night.

Now that's something we'll be doing backflips for (not literally—we'll leave that to Biles).
