Tips For A Perfect Ponytail from Ouidad’s Morgan Willhite.

Runway Beauty Trend Ponytails Tail Tips from Ouidad Creative Director, Morgan Willhite

Always a constant in a woman’s hair repertoire, it now seems the ponytail is more of a hot trend than staple look. Curl driven, soft and wavy ponytails were spotted on a plethora of runways at New York Fashion Week over the last few days. From the looped and tucked tails at Carolina Herrera to the embellished ponytail twists at Derek Lam, locks in favor of ponytails were clearly polished, playful, setting the stage for hair trends in 2012. Morgan Willhite, Creative Director at Ouidad offers her expertise to replicate these runway inspired ponytails for curly girls nationwide.

“The best part about ponytails is that they are low maintenance yet they look high fashion. Although they are a great option for most hair types, they are especially attractive on curly hair,” says Willhite. Ponytails can be fun or sophisticated and the only requirement is that your hair is at least medium length. “All you need is a touch of the Ouidad Clear Control pomade, a few sprays of the new Frizz and Fly Away Fighter and a hair elastic to make this trend work for you,” says Willhite.

Morgan’s Tail Tips

  • Brush your hair with a comb or the Ouidad Double Detangler ($24 at Ouidad.com) and apply the Ouidad Climate Control Gel ($22 at Ouidad.com) throughout the hair to reduce frizz
  • Put an elastic band around your right wrist and hold your hair in your left hand; with your right hand brush the hair back smoothly; curly hair tends to be dry, so spray a bit of water to keep it damp as you work
  • Open the hand holding the hair as you brush the hair through; smooth out the front adding Ouidad Climate Control Gel to control curls
  • Use your left hand to slide the elastic off your right wrist and onto the base of the ponytail
  • Let some curls escape the ponytail for a romantic look
  • Try a loose ponytail if you have thick curly hair
  • Apply the new Ouidad Frizz and Flyaway Fighter ($22 at Ouidad.com) to the finished look to help reduce frizz and keep the flyaways tamed

Sienna Miller shows off her baby bump!


Kristina Bumphrey/Startraks

Sienna Miller, who is reportedly expecting her first child with her boyfriend, actor Tom Sturridge, stepped out Tuesday night in a form-fitting black gown, which clung tightly enough seemingly to reveal the British actress’s small baby bump.

Miller, 30, attended a fashion video exhibit in New York City, reports Britain’s Daily Mail.

Despite the fact that the event was held on Valentine’s Day, Sturridge did not attend with Miller.

Last week, Miller was photographed in London wearing a diamond ring, prompting rumors that she and Sturridge are engaged, according to the Daily Mail. But neither has confirmed the status of their relationship nor officially confirmed news of her pregnancy.

Nicole Richie Unveils Final Look for Her Season of Smooth Transformations

Starting at the big show in January, designer, mom and mogul, Nicole Richie teamed up with Suave Professionals® and invited women to discover the essence of Keratin at home with the New Suave Professionals® Keratin InfusionTM system. Last night, at the music industry’s biggest night, Richie debuted another smooth transformation thanks to the New Suave Professionals® Keratin InfusionTM system.

Suave Professionals® Stylist, Jenny Cho shares her tips on how to get Nicole’s look:

1. Start by washing and conditioning hair using the new Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner to help maintain vibrant color and control frizz for up to 48 hours.
2. On wet hair, use the Suave Professionals Heat Protection Spray prior to blow drying to help defend against heat damage.
3. Apply Suave Professionals Volumizing Root Boost Spray directly at the roots to provide lift and support for lasting volume.
4. Blow dry hair using a round brush.
5. Section hair to prepare for curling, and spray with Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Lightweight Hold Hairspray.
6. Start at the nape of the neck, and using a two-inch curling iron, begin to wrap one-inch sections of hair around the iron, keeping the clamp open. Leave the ends out of the curl for a more rock-and-roll look.
7. As you curl, make sure to vary the direction of the curls around your head, curling some pieces toward your face and some away from your face. Be sure to curl the hair framing your face away from your face.
8. Apply Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo all over hair to keep your style refreshed, help extend your blowout and revive volume.
9. Shake out hair and use a drop of the Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smooth & Shine Serum to add lustrous shine and frizz control for up to 48 hours. Run fingers through hair for added shine.
10. Finish by misting hair with Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Lightweight Hold Hairspray.

In order to help all women discover the benefits of keratin, Richie has invited women to join the Keratin Collective on the Suave Beauty Facebook page . By sharing their transformation stories, women can enter for the chance to win a fabulous trip for two to celebrate their gorgeous new look and for every story shared Suave Professionals® will donate $1, up to $10,000, to the Richie Madden Children’s Foundation.
