The phrase go big or go home must have started in the South-and, more accurately, was talking about Southern hair.The South is home to some of the most iconic hairstyles-from Dolly Parton's waves to Farrah Fawcett's layers. A Southern hair is a woman's crowning glory, and her hot rollers and hairspray are her secret weapons. For good reason-the humidity in the South can wreck the most perfectly coiffed hairstyles. It will frizz and flatten fresh haircuts before you even leave the salon. Southern Living has the secrets to the best Southern hair-the tricks to always have flawless hairstyles and choosing the best haircuts for your face shape, hair texture, and maintenance routine (because let's be honest, we can't all spend 30 plus minutes on our hair every day). Here, learn how to master the art of Southern hair, with step-by-step, easy-to-do hairstyles
