HOT Holiday Hair Tips from the Curl Connoisseur, Morgan Willhite

Ouidad Holiday Hair Tips

The Holidays are upon us! Step up your style and be passionate about your curls by adding some pizzazz with the help of Ouidad Creative Director, Morgan Willhite. Start with a healthy curly hair foundation and create curls that scream sensation style.

Make Curls Behave This Holiday Season
The best way to make curls and unruly behave is to keep hair healthy; use a deep conditioning treatment on your hair every two weeks to “feed” your hair and keep it strong, shiny and healthy; the Ouidad Deep Treatments ($25) is ideal
Hydrated hair is the foundation and lifeline for curls; let your curls dry naturally, with no heating tools
The less you handle or play with your hair, the better off you are – don’t run fingers through it or touch it too much
Use the Ouidad Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel ($22) and Moisture Lock Conditioner ($22); these products nourish your hair, tame frizz and smooth flyaway’s in any weather
Holiday Glam Curls
Begin by shampooing and conditioning your hair with the Ouidad Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo ($18) and Conditioner ($20)
While the hair is still wet, spritz it with the Ouidad Botanical Boost ($16) to preserve the moisture
Dry slightly with a blow dryer on medium heat and set your hair with medium heat rollers
Morgan recommends Tourmaline Static Free Rollers
Set the top center row of the rollers going back all the way to the back of
the head, and the sides of the head down
When the rollers have cooled, remove them from the hair and apply the Ouidad Shine Glaze Serum ($20) to your palms and run your hands all over the set hair
Follow with a natural bristle brush and brush your hair gently for couple of minutes to relax the set
Using your fingers, part your hair in the center to allow the flow of the set (using a comb would cause the hair to fan out)
Yoou can also ad beautiful accessories to your curly hair for an extra touch of glam
Necklaces as headbands are always a nice touch

Get the Look: Katy Perry Pretty in Pink at the 2011 AMA’s

Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Renato Campora Created A High-Fashion Sophisticated Up-Do for Katy Perry at 39th Annual American Music Awards

INSPIRATION: A very sculpted, modern take on a French twist. Renato was inspired for this look after seeing Katy’s red carpet dress. The look was elegant and sophisticated but also innovative.

How To Get the Look: Renato began by applying Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel to wet hair in order to give it a firm base. He then blow-dried the hair while brushing it through with a flat brush. He used a one-inch curling iron throughout the hair to create body while giving it a sturdy foundation. Renato then heavily teased the hair. To create the final up-do, he pushed the front of the hair forward and wrapped the rest into a French twist, securing it with hairpins. To complete the look, Renato added an accessory made by Vivienne Westwood by weaving it into the hair with his fingers. He secured the look by spraying the hair with Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray.

All products by Fekkai: Fekkai Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel ($25), and Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($25). Available at Fekkai.com and Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.
