The monday list: the hair raising.


If we learned anything from last night’s Grammy Awards, it is that winners do not have boring hair.

And even though you do not have a team of stylists making your look perfect or intentionally un-perfect, you can develop your own winning look as well.

The amazing companies below make a variety of fabulous American-made products that will help you do your do, maintain your mane, pouf your pompadour and tame your tresses.
