Just like Dolly says, “The higher the hair, the closer to Heaven”

When you’re looking for that classic southern blowout or a head full of bouncy curls, look no further than downtown Lexington’s newest salon, Suites of the Bluegrass.

This salon is changing the game when it comes to maintaining both the quality and style of your hair and looking good while you’re at it! Located in the historic Melodeon Theater Hall on Main Street, you can treat yourself to a spa-like experience with a view.

Whether your hair is freshly washed or rocking curls that are 3 days old, there’s a beautiful southern hairstyle you can achieve... with a little help that is. Don’t be afraid of product when it’s used the right way; you’d be surprised what a little dry shampoo and texturing spray can do! Blogger, Caitlin Covington shows us all how it’s done!

The Bouncy Curls

Imagine.. you’ve just washed your hair and somehow all of those curls fall in just the right places. You can’t get much more southern than a head full of bouncy, lucious curls. Since achieving this look requires a few tools, it’s super important to use a heat protectant spray before the styling begins. A crowd favorite is the Living Proof Restore Instant Protection Spray, which you can apply on damp or dry hair. From there, the best tool to get those perfect, not-too-tight curls is the InfiniPro by Conair 2-in-1 Stainless Styler. This tool is seriously the best of both worlds with a straightening and curl feature. This will help you achieve those beautiful curls that will last all day long.

The Party Pony

So you’re on day 2 and you’re going from work to date night... this is your go-to! Rock those curls a second day by working in some texturizing spray to really get some tease and grit to create the perfect height to that pony. A good product to lean on would be the Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Surfrider Dry Texture Spray. Once you’ve got your pony in place, go back in with your heat tools and touch up those curls to perfection. This is such a cute updo you can rock from day into night!

The Top Knot

Now you’ve hit day 3 and your calendar is filled with errands and lunch with your momma... cue the top knot. Once you’ve reached the third day of curls and a little bit of product, your hair will be ready to do pretty much whatever you ask of it. You’ll first want to start with some of your go-to dry shampoo because we all know a little shine starts to sink in by this time. Then. if you feel like you need a little more hold, follow up with some more of that texture spray to really get a good shape. Now you’re ready to plop it all up top and rock that 3 day old hair. Trust me, you’re not the only one and to be frank, the 3rd day is always my favorite.
