Many starlets chose to rock loose, cascading retro waves at the 85th Annual Academy Awards including Vanessa Hudgens, Reese Witherspoon, and Hilary Swank. Morgan Willhite, Creative Director at Ouidad, shares her styling tips for re-creating the glamorous, classic look which is a perfect date night style.

How To Achieve The Look:

1. Apply Ouidad's PlayCurl Volumizing Styling Spray to wet hair which allows the hair to be prepped for styling prior to drying.

2. To create soft waves, use a large one inch iron or hot rollers. Whether you use an iron or rollers, make sure hair is completely dry before touching the achieved curl pattern.

3. After you have set the curls and allowed them to cool, avoid a brush and use your fingers to break up the waves until they naturally interlock.

4. To add shine, while taming frizz, finish with Ouidad's Climate Control Frizz & Flyaway Fighter by spritzing onto palms and running over the surface of hair.

Morgan recommends treating the hair the night before with Salon Series by Ouidad Omega-3 Replenishing Hair Treatment which boosts color and increases shine, while helping to control frizz and keep curls silky, smooth.
