    welcome.
    Impossible to say which will work best for you.
    You will need to try and see.

    Blue tape is usually more forgiving, but I have not used either in years.
    Hairspray on bare glass is fine too.

    I use a thin layer of hair spray every 3 prints. I will off the bed with isopropyl alcohol every 3 then, spray with hair spray.

    Make sure if you use hairspray that you use the kind that was popular in the big hair era. If you use the new ecofriendly hairspray, usually sold in pump sprayers rather than aerosol cans, your parts will likely not stick very well or at all. In the US places like Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Rite-Aid, etc. all sell stuff like Aquanet and White Rain, make sure you get the extreme/maximum hold kind.

    There are a few places that market a spray specifically for 3D printers, beware as these are no more and maybe less effective than the extra hold hairsprays at a very premium price.

    ABS is another matter, and if you can avoid using it I would highly suggest that you do. There are a lot of other filaments that have the strength of ABS without the print issues, and others that have higer Tg temperatures (Glass Transition temperature) again without the printing issues that come with ABS.

    I really like Aquanet. As far as expensive goes I buy 3DLAC and it is amazing on pretty much everything. Not exactly hairspray something different but works as intended. Stuff sticks like its going out of style :D (but like 10 bucks a can vs 2)
