Many a star shined bright at the Oscars last Sunday. It was a blur of glitz, glamour and who wore what and rocked it. A host of headlines followed the gorgeous styling on celebs like Kerry Washington, Jessica Chastain and Reese Witherspoon who all walked the red carpet with a cascade of retro waves in their hair.
Achieving the beautiful retro wave can seem complicated but Ouidad and its Creative Director Morgan Willhite have some tips and products to help you create your own set of screen-worthy retro waves.
1. The night before your big event treat your hair with Salon Series by Ouidad Omega-3 Replenishing Hair Treatment. It boosts shine and color while controlling frizz and keeping curls smooth and silky.
2. The next day wet your hair and apply Ouidad’s PlayCurl Volumizing Styling Spray. This will prep your hair for styling before you dry it. Creating the waves is next! Use a large one inch curling iron or hot rollers on dry hair. Pin curl them into place and allow the curls to cool.
3. Once the curls have cooled comb through them with your fingers, never using a brush. This will get the curls to naturally fall together in that retro style wave. Finish the style up with Ouidad Climate Control Frizz & Flyaway Fighter. Spray it onto your hands and run it gently over the surface of your hair. Sensational shine will ensue.
Ouidad products are sold at Ouidad.com, Ouidad salons, Sephora and ULTA.
