Brittney is a proud member of football royalty. “One of my favorite memories is of a father-daughter shopping trip we took to the Mall of America when I was seven or eight years old,” recalls the star. “I wasn’t doing my own hair yet so my dad was trying to braid my hair. I was tender-headed and telling him that he was doing my hair wrong. But he didn’t do too bad of a job. He made it work!”

And now Brittney makes it work every day. What are some of her hair secrets? “Always have a good curling iron on hand. I actually have about 4 or 5 different curling irons that range in size from a one-inch barrel all the way up to a jumbo size,” says Britney. “I honestly love curling my hair. I usually always use the ceramics Hot Tools curling irons.”

And we can’t get enough of the star’s ultra-long lengths. “I’ve been wearing it long because it allows me to be more versatile—I can wear it straight, really curly or sometimes for evening I’ll swoop it up and put it to the side,” adds Brittney. “I think long hair allows me tons of versatility so I am able to have fun with it!”
