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

This Month’s Best Beauty Buys, by Marie Claire!

SPACE FACE
I’m hooked on the ethereal, soft-focus finish of La Mer Treatment Powder Foundation, $90. Fittingly, its base ingredient is Airgel, a literally weightless material used by NASA.

GOLDEN GIRLS
To soften the edgiest makeup looks, Lancome’s Aaron De May cleverly borrows a stroke from Renaissance painters, highlighting faces with gold—on cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, Cupid’s bow, or center of eyelids (my personal fave). Best gilty pleasures: Lancôme Poudre Liberté Highlighting Powder, $40, Sensai The Lipstick by Kanebo, $55, and Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Gold Emulsion, $36.

DOUBLE HEADER
Ouidad Double Detangler, $24, is designed to gently unfurl ringlets. But I found it also effortlessly rakes deep conditioner through my long straight hair, pre-swim, making it my new beach-bag staple.

RED EYE
Runway Dorothy-worthy ruby eyeshadow, sparkling up models’ lids at Prada.
Reality Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Red Iron mascara, $28, and palette, $58, serving up vibrant yet flattering crimson shades that most of us can pull off (seriously). The exception: pale blondes (you’ll want to avoid the albino bunny look).

THE BIG APPLES
My beauty crutch: heaps of blush. But fall’s high-drama eyes and shockingly bold lips demand a lighter touch. For a featherweight fix, Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Liquid Tint, $9.99, serves up just the right dewy dose.
