To achieve the Miss Universe Glamorous Hair look, Cantu provides the following tips;

•       Prep Hair with Miss Universe by CHI Moringa & Macadamia Oil and Miss Universe by CHI Flexible Hold Hairspray

•       Section the hair into 4 parts (top, sides and back)

•       Staring at the back followed by the remaining sections, curl 1 inch sections with the Miss Universe by CHI 1” Titanium Curling Iron. Pin the curls to cool and set for 5 minutes


Saturday's are for girl talk, blowouts and CHI.

•       Release curls and gently break up with your fingers

•       Tease hair at the roots, creating volume and lift at the crown.

•       Create a deep side part pulling all hair to one side. Pin at the nape of the neck to hold in place.

•       Next, spray with Miss Universe by CHI Firm Hairspray to set the style.

•       Finish with Miss Universe by CHI Spotlight Shine Spray.
