There’s something about Southern ladies: They always have fabulous hair. In spite of scorching temperatures and sky-high humidity, they manage to look polished morning, noon and night.
That’s especially true of country music’s leading ladies. Belting out a ballad, there’s nary a hair out of place. Miranda Lambert is a prime example as she sings her way around the country this summer. She may be better known for her soulful lyrics and dynamic voice, but her hair deserves applause as well.
These days, hairstylist Johnny Lavoy is the man behind her signature waves, but he is quick to give the singer-songwriter hair kudos. “There are times that I don’t get to style Miranda when she is on tour,” Lavoy shared with Simplemost. “Because of this, I want to make sure she can create her signature waves on her own. I’ve equipped her with a full set of PRO Beauty Tools curling irons so she can create any look she wants on the road. She is actually a great study — she does an amazing job doing her own hair and makeup.”
Lavoy shared several helpful styling tips with us, so you can achieve country music and Southern belle-level hair. All you need is one versatile tool available at Amazon and a bit of practice.
Rock ‘n Roll Waves
For Miranda’s signature look, Lavoy created waves using the tapered attachment of the new PRO Beauty Tools new 3-in-1 Copper Ceramic Curling Wand. The trick here is to wrap the hair in alternating sections (one forward, then one back) as you work around your head. Also, be sure to leave the ends out for a deconstructed curl.
Super Soft Waves
For a slight variation on Lambert’s signature style, Lavoy recommended starting with blow-dried hair. Then he used the large barrel attachment of the PRO Beauty Tools 3-in-1 Copper Ceramic Curling Wand and wrapped hair in sections. He finished the look by brushing through hair, which softened the waves, and before setting them with hairspray.
These easy-going styles would be perfect for summer weddings or even a concert. If they are good enough for the headliner, you’ll certainly wow in the crowd!
