Ask a curly girl about her relationship with her hair and she’ll tell you that she’s in love. And that it’s complicated!
That’s because curl takes attention. Creativity. Dedication. And some pretty genius products. But don’t just take it from us, meet some Ulta Beauty employees that embrace their curl, each in their own way. Which of their secrets will you steal?
Associate Buyer, Pro Hair
Rebecca’s secret for beautiful beach waves: “I use smoothing cream overnight and texture spray in the morning. That gives it a fun, piece-y look. To give it even more life, I spray on a shine mist.”
Director of Marketing
Karla’s secret for reducing heaviness: “I use clarifying shampoo to take out the buildup that can weigh curls down. It’s also an opportunity to start from scratch with all of my products so that they can have the best effect.”
Senior Manager Loyalty Marketing
Catherine’s secret for great curl on the go: “I air dry my hair to keep the frizz down. Then I use a lightweight mousse and scrunch it in. I just shake my head, and it’s out the door!”
Senior Director of E-Commerce
Jodi’s secret for getting out the knots: “I condition every day – and use a detangler comb while it’s still wet. Over time, it gets easier and easier.”
E-Commerce Site Operations Specialist
Cassandra’s secret for drying: “When my hair is wet, I tilt my head down and grab the hair around my crown and clip it on top of my head. I keep it there until it’s done air drying – when I let it down it looks full and has lift.”
Guest Service Specialist
Niara’s secret for keeping curls hydrated: “ I condition every other day and use a misting spray even more often. “At night, I wear a satin bonnet or hair scarf to bed – it helps keep the moisture in.”
E-Commerce Associate Buyer
Leslie’s secret for avoiding frizz: “I dry using a diffuser. But I only diffuse until it’s 85-90% dry – I have to keep in a little bit of that moisture, or else it gets frizzy.”
There is advice for any girl, with any curl. But no matter what, one thing is universal: Curly hair is all about simply owning it.
