No Longer Scared of Hair Spray

I just returned from a quick weekend jaunt to Chicago. I guess you could say I was a quasi-Blogher conference attendee, but instead of trying to cram every panel, party and swag fest into my day, I brought my family and spent most of my time hanging out in our old neighborhood of Bucktown. We arrived late on Thursday night, had a pizza delivered to the hotel at 11:30pm and let our toddler jump up and down on the bed like a crazed lunatic.

Friday morning was pretty brutal. As most of you know, traveling east pretty much kills your will to live upon waking the following morning. As I dragged my tired ass out of bed, I remembered that I had an appointment with celebrity stylist Luke O’Connor and his team for a little hair styling session at the Suave booth at the conference. The day was looking up already!

At 9:30 am, I arrived at Suave’s darling booth and met the lovely Anna, who I’m pretty sure utilizes the best curling iron technique I have ever witnessed. It was like a hybrid of a no-clamp AND clamping technique. (I’m currently trying to replicate the process so I can show you all in a future tutorial.)

Anna effortlessly curled my hair and sprayed a light mist of Suave Professionals Extra Hold Hair Spray as a final touch. Not being a fan of hair spray, I was a little hesitant, but she assured me the spray would help the curls last longer.

Voilá! Ready for the day! Now, here’s the part I can’t get over. I spent the next 8 HOURS chasing my toddler all over the city of Chicago and my hair still looked like this Friday evening:

I didn’t even need to touch it up before heading out! Suave, you have made this hair spray phobic into a believer. I’m stocking up.
