    rubbing alcohol is a good thing to remove hair spray build up. If the walls are tile or washable.

    Grab some Mr Clean, or dish liquid, or degreaser, or a couple of TBSP ammonia in a bucket of hot water. Make it hot strong and sudsy.

    Scrub with a terry cloth cover on a swiffer dry mop.

    You know the normal swiffer? Take some cheap terry facecloths, stick them in the finger poke holes that you put the swiffer cloth into

    and dunk in the bucket and sweep across the walls till clean.

    this is much easier than doing by hand.

    If it needs extra ooomph, put some nylon net on top of the terry for a great tough but gentle scrubber. But watch it or it will start stripping paint off.

    Use a little vinegar in water and swab that on for a rinse with a fresh terry cloth facecloth, and then dry with a fresh dry facecloth.

    I've also heard that fabric softner is great for removing hair spray build up. Haven't tried it yet, but keep meaning to.

    After you get the walls clean, there is a product I swear by, my MIL turned me on to it. Its called GELGLOSS it is product that makes the tile shine like new and repels water and stains. I got mine at Home Depot in the plumbing fixtures area, it comes in a bright pink can. here is a link. It also comes in a spray can, that's what i use.

    Margery, i was going to say the same thing. lol
    I love that tsp it works wonders!!! especially for hard to get off wallpaper and border. I redid all my old lineolium years ago in my last house. I scrubbed with soapy water and tsp and a very hard scrubby brush and toothbrush. Rinsed twice with vinegar. Then put three thin layers of wax on the floors drying between layers. It was so glossy but not slippy, just like new.
