As summer heats up, quick and easy ways to fight the heat without compromising the look of your latest hair style is a dilemma we all have faced, but get excited, because I may have found an easy solution- Ouai haircare!
Ouai was created by celebrity hair genius Jen Atkin, who is know for creating the lived-in textured hair that gives you the perfect model off duty look. Atkin’s clients range from Chrissy Tiegen, Jenna Dewan Tatum, to Bella Hadid and their looks never disappoint! But, don’t be swayed by her client list because Atkin’s products and tutorials make her perfect looks attainable for us non- celebrities. Her “less is more” mantra is one I can get behind when it comes to styling my hair! Here she is working on one of my favorite bloggers Marianna Hewitt and with InStyle’s Kahlana Barfield to show us how to get the perfect waves.
Check out my favorite Ouai products below and how I use them! :)
Textured Hairspray- Atkin describes this as “if hairspray and dry shampoo had a baby.” Really tho, she’s not wrong! It gives your hair a flexible hold while giving you the piecey texture dry shampoo provides. When I apply this, I hold the ends of my hair and let it fall while spraying the product in. This technique helps to apply the product more evenly and really gets it into the depths of the hair to ensure layers of texture.
Wave Spray- I use this after rough drying my hair when I want a beachy look (or if I don’t feel like curling or straightening my hair). Since I have natural wavy hair, this helps to give it definition and then I just touch it up with my curling iron.
Rose Hair & Body Oil- I really can’t express how heavenly this smells. I am a huge fan of rose products (I’ll share more of my favorite rose products soon!) and this one is hands down one of my favorites. The light, silky consistency is so hydrating and I love that it is a fast drying oil. You can use this on your hair or skin to provide a beautiful scent and a light shimmer on the skin all while soaking in the rich oils. Perfection all around!
Matte Pomade- This is my latest trial from the Ouai line, I love having a moldable product to give texture to the ends of my hair that won’t weigh it down. You can also twist small sections of your hair and apply this to give a more dimensional look to your tresses.
The pearl bobby pins are part of Chloe & Isabel's collab with Jen Atkin. They range from large to small and can be used in so many creative ways to really make your whole look complete. See the whole collection here!
I look forward to tying more products from the line and I hope you are as in love with these products as I am! Let me know what you think on instagram.
P.S. Ouai also sells travel size options for your summer get-aways or if you want to test the product before fully committing to the full size option. Added bonus- all the products smell absolutely delicious (especially the wave spray and the new rose oil for hair and skin) and the packaging is so simple yet elegant. I mean, what else could you want?! Cutting edge style that won’t require a ton of time and effort and smells heavenly- I’ll take it all please!
Happy Hair Styling!!
