Known as the “Queen of Curl,” Ouidad opened her first salon in 1984 — the first salon in the country catering exclusively to curly hair. Born in Lebanon, she came to the U.S. by way of Paris, London, and Italy with a mission to make women love their curls. If her multiple successful salons, awards, and products are any indication, she’s succeeded — big time! We’re happy to have Ouidad on board as an official sponsor of Spa Week Fall 2012. Learn more about Ouidad here on her personal blog, and don’t forget: You can win over $800 of Ouidad products during our Spa Week Fall 2012 sponsor giveaway! Click here to enter.
