In the winter months, the bitter cold and dry heat from radiators can really take a toll on your curls.I would recommend for the winter months keeping your hair heavily hydrated by supplying your hair with as much moisture as possible. You must have the following products in your curl care arsenal this season!

Trend Report: Fall Haircuts

Ouidad Creative Director, Morgan Willhite’s Fall Trend report!

The Pixie

Short and spunky, this is a confident in your own skin cut.

“The Pixie” works for all hair types. Short, fun and sexy with textured ends giving the look a feminine flare. This is a great cut option for those transitioning out of a chemical treatment.

Morgan’s Styling Tip: Massage a small amount of Ouidad’s Wave Create Texture Taffy onto finger tips and apply ends adding texture and definition.

Again, defining the ends gives a bit of feminine edge!

The In-Between

“The In-between” sits happily at the collar bone. Easily managed and maintained. Long layers and soft shaping around the face. If hairs natural texture is tight/kinky…layers need to be blended into length and weight must be removed to avoid the “triangle”aka pyramid effect!

Morgan’s Styling Tip: Spritz Ouidad’s Wave Create Sea Spray on damp/dry hair, spray and scrunch in that tousled texture until desired look.

Contoured Movement

Creating a shape to tight/kinky textured hair is the rage this fall. Creating shape gives noticeable detail to hair with personality!

While still leaving hair full and sassy, contour shape by tapering the bottom to hug slightly  around face and neck. Let both your face and hair make a statement!

Morgan’s Styling Tips- Ouidad’s Curl Quencher Moisturizing Gel is fabulous for creating this style.

The combination of hydration and hold, gives a soft defined finish without weighing down all the voluminous texture!

The Natural

This is perfect for those who don’t like the look or feel of products or own a  blow-dryer but want a on trend look to your hair!

Adding subtle movement towards ends and around hairline. Slide or point cutting help create and  encourage texture without the use of styling products.

Morgan’s Styling Tip: If styling products are a no, make sure hydration is a GO!

Simply apply a quarter size amount of Curl Recovery Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner & Styling Primer while hair is still wet to  help define and add hydrated texture.

A Light at the End of the Tunnel

Sometimes in life we are met with heartbreak, strength and a chance to make a difference. This is a story about Ouidad’s personal struggle with breast cancer and her dedication to fighting for the cure.

When Ouidad first learned she had breast cancer, this terrifying news was met with a shuddering synchronicity, she was the exact age her mother had been diagnosed with the disease that took her life. Today, Ouidad feels incredibly fortunate to be a breast cancer survivor for over a decade, but she vowed never to make that the end of her battle.

Out of this personal experience, Ouidad made it her mission to make a difference in the lives of others affected by breast cancer. In 2001, with her husband and business partner Peter Wise, she founded Curls for a Cure® foundation. Every donation made to Curls for a Cure®, up to $50,000 each year, is matched dollar-for-dollar by Ouidad.

Ouidad chose to partner with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® because every dollar donated to BCRF goes further toward funding research and finding a cure with 91 cents of every dollar directed toward research and awareness programs. BCRF is an independent, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and genetic research at leading medical centers worldwide, while increasing public awareness about good breast health. You can learn more about the partnership here.

Over the years, Ouidad has spoken with friends in the industry, clients in the salon and other men and women affected by the disease about her own struggles and valuable lessons going through such an emotional experience. She truly believes breast cancer is not a death sentence, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and together we can make a difference to help find a cure.

All year long, we pay homage to those affected by breast cancer and we hope for a future where prevention and cure exists. It was important to Ouidad, who understands the daily battle, that contributions for Curls for a Cure® could be made everyday of the year directly on Ouidad.com here, no purchase is necessary. In addition, we offer the opportunity to our clients to easily add a donation during the checkout process with any purchase on our site.  We thank every one who has contributed in the past and who takes a moment to donate now for helping us in this crusade for the cure! We are proud to share that with your help we have donated over $444,000 toward finding a cure.

We invite you to join us in our goal to reach half a million dollars and hope you to make a donation which we will match dollar-for-dollar. Thank you for your support.
