Get Carrie-D Away with Sexy Waves

With the Sex and The City movie coming up.. We all have Carrie - Fever! ( well at least I do !) and what better way to celebrate "The SEX" than to sport some Carrie Bradshaw-esque waves. Who better to get tips from on how to obtain the Sexy Waves than the Curly Hair Expert, OUIDAD ... Enjoy !!!!

1. After shampooing and conditioning your hair, leave about 25% of the conditioner in your hair. Apply styling lotion in fatter sections (about 2 inches wide and 2 inches thick) so you are able to create bigger waves, and perform the Ouidad Rake & Shake method.

2. Be sure to apply the styling lotion evenly working your way all the way up to the top of the head.

3. When you get to the top, create a side part.

4. Next, take the side part section, apply styling lotion and create a wave pattern with the Ouidad Rake & Shake method.

5. Be careful not to rake too much or you will create too much bounce.

6. Allow hair to set. Once it is set, gently diffuse the hair, without placing hair in the diffuser, or again you will be creating too much bounce.

7. Once hair is completely dry, apply a pomade such as Ouidad Clear Control Pomade ( pictured left , $26) by rubbing your palms together, pulling hair into a mock ponytail and running your hands through. For the final touch, add a dollop of pomade at the top of the head to smooth any flyaways.

8. Get ready to turn heads with your sexy ‘do!

I also would like to mention that Botanical Boost ( pictured left/ $16), Sun Shield (pictured center/ $20) and Climate Control ( pictured/ $22) are very necessary for the next coming Sexy Summer months ahead.*****

All these marvelous products are available at Ouidad Salons, www.ouidad.com
