The CMA Awards
are pretty much synonymous with big, beautiful hair. "The higher the hair, the closer to heaven." Isn't that how the age-old Southern belle adage goes?
Well, despite her goddess-worthy gown, glowy complexion, and a stare that could kill, country music sweetheart Lauren Alaina
looked decidedly down-to-earth at the 46th Annual CMA Awards. Thanks mostly in part to her gorgeous girl-next-door 'do.
The singer wore her bleached locks teased to perfection and pulled back with soft, blended braids along the side. Here's another look:
During our college years, where hair to the heavens was a daily ritual at our southern school, there was one super-star hair product that we (and all
our sorority sisters) couldn't live without. One time a TSA agent confiscated this said volumizing magician from our carry-on bag—The can was a whopping 10.6-ounces. Woops—and, well, we cried. Just a little. Then rushed to the nearest drugstore the second our plane landed. (Yes, that really happened.)
Our absolute have-to-have hairspray for amped up hair, then? Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray
($17.50 at Ulta.com). It gives your strands lots of lift and keeps flyaways locked into place all-night long—college-party proven. We love it so much, we still use it to this day!
