Curly Hair Styling Prep

Hello my friends, I hope you all enjoy this video made special for all my curly clients out there who have a hard time styling their curls at home! As most of you know, I am a Ouidad Curly Hair stylist, and former curl challenged girl myself. Check out my post on the story behind my curly hair trauma here:

My clients would always stare in awe, watching me do my own hair in the Ouidad Salon in Santa Monica, where I was lucky enough to have my dear little assistant, Aury wash my hair for me weekly! Now that I'm not working there anymore, I have to succumb to the tedious task of washing and styling my own hair again! I am right there with ya, clients! ;)

This is the first video in a series that breaks down Ouidad's Rake and Shake Styling Method for you, so you can practice your own styling routine at home with an easy to follow tutorial a la me!

I've never made a video before, but I just went for it, fresh faced, without any makeup on, on a complete whim, having just got out of the shower, so please pardon the impromptu approach! The video was initially 20 minutes long, but youtube won't let you go over 15, which I'm assuming works better for you so you're not overwhelmed, and can take it in little bite size morsels!

This first video is literally just getting the outline of your styling approach going. I show you how to get your sections in before you start the actual "Raking and Shaking".

Hope you enjoy!

Any questions, please feel free to ask! I would also love to hear you comments in the comment section below! And please pass this along to any of your curly hair friends and family! Let their natural essence come forward!

Stay tuned for more videos in this complete Curly Hair Styling series!

Practice makes perfect!

Ciao Curly Girls!
