City Pulse

By Brianne Carlon

It’s a well known fact that everyone wants what they can’t have. Tall girls want to be short and short girls want to be tall. Brunettes want to be blonde and blondes want to be…well maybe not. But it’s about time us curly girls really gave those straight-haired broads something to be jealous about.

Did you know 70% of us have naturally curly hair?!

With gorgeous locks one day and wild, unruly knots the next, curly hair may be a mixed blessing, which is why Ouidad, “The Curly Hair Expert,” created her own formula for defined, soft, shiny and manageable curls.

With 30 years of experience, Ouidad was the very first stylist and salon owner in the country to specialize in curly hair, and now she is the go-to-girl for beauty consultants and editors. She even has a trademark cutting technique, “Carving and Slicing,” that has received sheer approval. This Valentine’s Day, she’s inviting all her curly-haired sista’s to check it out at her “Curl’s Night Out.”

The evening, hosted at the flagship Ouidad Salon, will include: style demonstrations, curl consultations, giveaways, and a sneak peak at Ouidad’s latest (so-new-it’s-not-even-in-stores) love potion for curls. Stop by for a Curl-tini, some free samples and 25 percent of all product sales – which will be donated to Curls for a Cure.

RSVP required. Visit http://www.ouidad.com to reserve your chair.

WHAT: Curls Night Out with Ouidad
WHEN: Monday, February 11th from 5-8 pm
WHERE: The Ouidad Salon, 37 West 57th, 4th Floor, 212.888.3288
