Natural texture was all the rage at last night’s 84th Oscar Academy Awards. From full volume kinky curls to chic, tousled up dos, starlets embraced and celebrated the natural texture of their hair.
Ouidad Creative Director, Morgan Willhite shares her tips for recreating these screen siren styles.
Old Hollywood Glamour
“Milla Jovovich’s soft, romantic chin length wave was simply breathtaking. Achieving this look at home requires prepping the hair with an anti humectant product, similar to the Ouidad Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel. This product protects waves from frizz while adding shine. Make sure the gel is distributed evenly throughout damp hair, section and then proceed to roll hair in medium size rollers allowing hair to thoroughly dry. Finish by running your fingers through and setting with the Ouidad Styling Mist for a light hold” says Willhite.
Natural Tight Texture
“The Help’s Viola Davis embraced what she has naturally by opting for a beautiful, detailed short cut that embraced her tight textured hair. Achieve this simple, low maintenance look with the Ouidad Curl Quencher Styling Gel which helps to hydrate and define curls, while leaving hair soft to the touch,” says Willhite.
Soft Siren Waves
“Stacy Keibler decided to strut a natural wave on the red carpet, alongside Clooney. Her cascading golden tresses paired perfectly with her Grecian style gown. To create Stacy’s look, first blow dry hair smooth and then use patterned rollers to achieve the desired look. Finish the look with the Ouidad Shine Glaze Serum to give hair that polished sheen without a weighty or sticky feel,” says Willhite.
Full Volume Kinky Curls
“Esperenza Spalding proved that curls be full, voluminous and sexy. Replicating her look is a breeze. When the hair is wet, prep the ends with a leave in conditioner similar to the Ouidad Moisture Lock as is ideal for detangling and achieving a soft finish. Once the hair is dry, use your fingers raking from roots to the ends to expand and breakup your curls for that full voluminous look,” says Willhite.
