Rock Oscar-Worthy Retro Waves with Ouidad


Loose, cascading retro waves were all the rage at the 85th Annual Academy Awards. Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Chastain were just a few of the screen sirens who opted for this timeless look. Morgan Willhite, Creative Director at Ouidad, shares her styling tips for re-creating their glamorous, wavy locks. 


Morgan’s Tips:     
  •         For achieving this sleek polished style, Morgan recommends treating the hair the night before with Salon Series by Ouidad Omega-3 Replenishing Hair Treatment. This will boost color and increase shine, while helping to control frizz and keep curls silky, smooth
  •       First, apply Ouidad's PlayCurl Volumizing Styling Spray to wet hair. This product allows the hair to be prepped for styling prior to drying. To create these soft waves, use a large one inch iron or hot rollers. Whether you use an iron or rollers, make sure hair is completely dry before touching the achieved curl pattern
  •       After you have set the curls and allowed them to cool, avoid a brush and use your fingers to break up the waves until they naturally interlock
  •         Finish with Ouidad's Climate Control Frizz & Flyaway Fighter by spritzing onto palms and running over the surface of hair. This will add shine, while taming frizz
