Get The Look: Loose Waves at the Golden Globes with Ouidad

Golden Globes Look – Loose Waves Ouidad Curl Recovery Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner and Styling Primer
Loose waves stole the show  at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards and proved to be the hairstyle of choice for many of the red carpet’s finest. Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Jessica Alba and Amanda Seyfried were just a few rocking romantic, loose waves. Morgan Willhite, Creative Director at the Ouidad, shares styling tips for achieving some of last night’s golden looks!

Morgan’s Tips:
· A styling primer, such as the Ouidad Curl Recovery Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner and Styling Primer, is key to achieve the Hollywood glamour loose wave look
· Wash your hair with a nourishing shampoo and conditioner to help repair damage and promote shine and then add a hair styling primer and a volumizer to damp hair
· For ideal volume, try the new Ouidad Play Curl™ Volumizing Styling Spray
· Separate hair into medium sized sections and dry and curl hair with styling tools (such as 1” velcro roller or hot rollers)
· Gently use your fingers to break up curls for volume
· Add a dime sized amount of the primer to the ends of hair to prevent frizz and flyaway’s

The Curl Recovery Whipped Curls Conditioner and Primer is awesome! The formula has a triad of functions: styling primer, daily conditioner and leave-in hair mask. The rich, thick cream melts into your hair, hydrating a variety of curly hair types. My naturally curly hair gets really dry but the balance of condition without weighing my hair down is a tough balance.

I love this product because I can alter how I use it based on my hair is feeling. As you can see in the picture above it comes out like a nice rich frosting, so for most days I use it as a conditioner and rinse out. If I happen to have tortured my hair  with a hair dryer and flat iron I like to use it as a style primer. It conditions my hair and leave soft, bouncy curls that are never greasy or weighed down. The formula is so rich a little goes a long way making it a great value.

· Formula provides for soft and supple hair and primes hair for styling
· Formulated with a unique triple Olive Oil blend and Green Tea Extract

Must be the magic of the polymer blend because the Ouidad Curl Volumizing Styling Spray has done wonders for my naturally curly hair. I have long, thick, fine curly hair unfortunately my curls tend to look more 80’s hair band then nice loose curls. I have noticed since I started using the Ouidad Curl Volumizing Spray a few improvements in my hair. First it has dramatically improved the volume of my hair my curls look great and full from the root to tip. It also has helped soften my curls instead of bad perm look my curls are softer and looser and I can’t believe they stay looking great all day! If you are tired of fighting your curly hair only to put it in a bun try out this spray!

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
