Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray is Your New Miss Universe!
The journey to the crown is complete! Congratulations to our new Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray.
It began with 94 hopeful contestants (shattering last year’s record of 92) vying for the crown and concluded with the 24-year-old model and singer emerging as the newest Miss Universe, succeeding Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters. Catriona is only the fourth Fillipina to earn the distinguished title since the competition’s inception. South Africa’s Tamaryn Green was named first runner-up.
During the Preliminary Competition, Farouk Systems founder, Dr. Farouk Shami, briefly styled Catriona using the CHI LAVA Hairstyling Iron. Lava seemed to have special significance as the red evening gown she adorned for the winning moment was actually inspired by Mount Mayon, a famous volcano in the Philippines. Miss Universe 2005, Natalie Glebova, was also backstage and had a chance to speak to several members of the CHI Global Artistic Team about their favorite CHI products, innovative styling tools and the amazing looks they were creating for the competition’s contestants.
Wondering how Catriona got her winning look known as the Lava Wave? 7 simple steps create this crown-worthy style:
1. To create the foundation for her winning style, Catriona applied CHI 44 Iron Guard and used CHI’s Enviro 54 Hairspray Natural Hold all over for natural control.
2. Then, she divided her hair in two sections by using a middle parting.
3. She began taking 2-inch square sized subsections to curl the hair backwards and away from the face. She continued this step until all of her hair was done.
• One of the key benefits of the CHI LAVA Pro Spin n Curl is that she could easily curl her hair backwards on both sides, just by using the two arrow buttons on the tool to pick which direction the iron will spin.
4. To complete, Catriona mixed a few drops of CHI Silk Infusion and CHI Pliable Polish for shine and to tame any flyaways for an HD finish.
5. When she made it to the Top 10 (also wearing her lava red gown!), Catriona asked CHI Hairstylists Julián Macías and Leonel Rodriguez to change her hair to a sexy retro side look. Quickly done during a commercial break, Julián and Leonel both used the CHI Turbo Backcomb Brush to make the parting and add volume at the root.
6. They then misted the Lava Waves with more CHI Enviro 54 Hairspray Natural Hold and combed the style in place.
7. To finish, they misted CHI Shine Infusion all over for a beautiful weightless, camera ready shine.
Shortly after being crowned, Catriona gave her first live interview to Kalani Hilliker backstage in the CHI Lounge:
We wish Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray, a heartfelt congratulations and wish her well during her reign.

Best Shine and Sheen Sprays Hairstylists and Editors Love – Features CHI Enviro Smoothing Shine Spray
“I don’t want glossy, healthy-looking hair,” said no one ever. But unfortunately, achieving super shiny hair without a little help from serums, oil sheens, or shine sprays can be difficult. We recognize there are a ton of options out there, and it’s hard to figure out which one is best for you. So we checked in with some hair experts to help us get to the root (pun intended) of our confusion.
First up, what type of sheen spray you use depends on your hair texture. “Oil sheen sprays are best dryer or natural hair textures,” says Nelson Vercher of Rita Hazan Salon, adding that dryer hair can take heavier oils without the strands looking too weighed down. To add shine to wash-and-go styles, hairstylist Patricia Williams recommends using oil mists after hair is at least 80 percent dry. “For defined curls, less manipulation of the hair while drying will give your textured hair more elongation and more shine with movement and body,” she adds. Williams also advises clients to use shine-enhancing products with twist-outs to help keep hair smooth and frizz-free.
But if your hair isn’t super kinky or dry, that doesn’t mean you can’t use a sheen. “If you have finer hair, look for a spray that’s much lighter,” says Kiyah Wright, hairstylist and founder of Muze Hair salon in Los Angeles. “To add a little shine to finer hair, I would use a shine spray that emits a fine mist that evenly and lightly coats the hair.”
Another word of advice? Use sheen sparingly. According to trichologist and hairstylist at Crown Worthy, Sophia Emmanuel, using too much shine spray can cause buildup on the hair and scalp, which contributes to issues like dandruff and itchy scalp. “If you are using oils to add shine, make sure you are cleansing with shampoo that helps remove build up and clarifies the scalps,” she adds.
If you do get carried away, you can reverse the greasy look by counteracting it with an aerosol spray (the alcohol works as a drying agent). You can also try blotting your hair with a paper towel, just like you would if your face was too oily, and a dry shampoo can also help refresh your look. Now that you’re armed with the basics, keep scrolling to see which sheen sprays are the best of the best, according to our experts.
Enviro Smoothing Shine Spray
Emmanuel is a fan of this particular formula because “it gives the hair high shine without weighing it down and can be used on multiple hair types.” Another selling point? This shine spray smells lovely without being overpowering.
Shine Spray – Weightless spray with pearl and silk complex that provides instant brilliant shine to all hairstyles.

Farouk Systems, Inc. hosted its fourth Bi-Annual CHI Education Symposium for cosmetology instructors across the US. Over 80 instructors from CHI Partner Schools traveled to Houston for the three-day educational event.
To kick off the event, each instructor was invited to attend the official welcome party held at Bella Vetro. That evening, Circus du CHI gave attendees a vintage circus theme that included inspirational art work supplied by the Mosque Art Gallery. The entire Farouk Systems Team dressed in circus style costumes with an official Ring Master portrayed by Dixie Russell, CHI Schools Director, who helped orchestrate the experience. As an added highlight, CHI students were mentored by CHI Elite International Artist Andrew Guerra. He helped the students with finished models in true carnival fashions and hairstyles that complemented the art work. CHI Elite International Artist Efrain Liave also created a styling show on Friday and conducted a hands-on updo styling class that afternoon that focused on the Royal Treatment line.
Over the next three days, attendees participated in educational classes including,V A VA Violets with CHI Chromashine by CHI Elite International Artist Andrew Guerra; The Tailored Man by Esquire Barber Anna Perkins; a Milady Class by Patti Wannabaker and Creating a Higher Income by Hollie Lillie and Assistant, Dixie Russell. The symposium also included a tour of Farouk Systems and a special welcome by Dr. Farouk Shami and Lisa Marie Garcia.

Some people are good at baking pumpkin pies, some people excel at crooning carols, and some are annually designated family mixologist. Us? Time and again, we’re automatically deemed the house gift-whisperer—at least when it comes to beauty gifts. While shopping for the best hair tools on Amazon is a special skill that’s appropriate any time of the year, the holiday season is especially opportune for getting your hair-product shopping on.
Not only is there an infinite selection of hair tools to sift through on Amazon, but there are also just as many amazing deals to be discovered. The rub? It can take a lot of time and energy to comb through reviews and cross-check data (by way of other retailers) to make sure we’re truly getting the best hair tool and the most bang for our buck. So embodying our reputation as the ultimate personal shoppers when it comes to beauty finds, we’ve rolled up our sleeves. The goal: to find the 10 best hair tools with solid five-star reviews on Amazon. So sit back, scroll, and prepare your finger to tap “add to cart.” Your strands (and perhaps the strands of your loved ones) are in for a special treat.
What reviewers say: “Wow! That’s all I can say,” exclaims one Amazon reviewer. “This is a terrific product. I had been looking for a handleless hair dryer and found this one. Yes, it’s a little pricey, but the styling of this blow dryer is ingenious. You can stand it up straight when you are maneuvering hair in and out of clips, it is easy to direct to where you need the air without having to figure out how to hold a handle, it has three settings: cool, low heat, and high heat, it comes with 2 types of styling tools, plus a removable and cleanable vent cover. It also has an interesting feature to remove micro-bacterial build-up within the drier (who knew that even occurs?). It’s very well made, with a long cord to maneuver easily.”
What reviewers say: “These rollers are absolutely amazing,” says one happy customer. “They’re ready to use in thee minutes, and even though they’re a little pricey, they’re worth it. I have thick, long hair, and nine rollers are just right. Highly recommend.”

“This is a great way to stay on trend for updo or special event styling,” Melissa says. “You are able to transform hair instantly with a brand-new look sure to turn heads – no scissors needed.”

Use a hair wash that will leave your curls fresh and with a beautiful bounce.
When it comes to permed hair, there are a certain levels of upkeep and care that one must maintain to keep those gorgeous and curly locks in place. This also includes deciding upon which shampoo to purchase.
While also being free of parabens and sulfates, the choice of the best shampoo for permed hair should be delicate on chemically treated hair. Below, we’ve provided 25 of our favorite shampoos on the market that are both safe for permed hair and will leave your hair silky, shiny, and fabulous.
3. Infra Shampoo by CHI
Safe enough for curly permed hair, CHI’s Infra Shampoo contains ionic and catatonic hydration interlink technology while remaining sulfate- and paraben- free. This formula is known to add luscious shine while balancing both moisture and health between hair bonds.
Is it just us or do flat irons and blow-dryers get used a whole lot more during the winter season? I mean, it actually makes perfect sense: After all, hot tools and the sweltering elements are about as mismatched as it gets. Because while you may spend hours carefully parting, combing and straightening every section of your freshly washed mane, the moment you step into humid air, all of that hard work practically disintegrates into an almost-instant messy pouf.
The beauty of heat-styling during the winter is that you needn’t worry about your style falling apart in the cold, though it’s still just as important to protect it from wet snow, rain or high winds, depending on the weather, which always seems to be unpredictable.
And because your usage is on the rise, the same must be so for day-to-day-repair. Enter the ever-dependent thermal spray or cream, a primer made with nutrients that not only give your hair the moisture and luster they’re prone to losing during the hot tool process. They also coat your strands so that even under the pressure of heat, sometimes up to 450 degrees, it will be able to retain its natural texture whenever you’re ready to cleanse again.
The ones we love most just so happen to be affordable too, with price tags that stay under $20. From creams formulated specifically for textured hair to mists that also detangle, these heat protectants may or may not be the secret to keeping your blowout on point.
In addition to vitamin E and silk for locking in moisture, this thermal spray also includes UV absorbers to prevent color-treated hair from fading after multiple uses.
Lightweight lotion made with a rich silk formula to help lock in moisture and protect hair from thermal style and color fading.
- Ionic and Cationic Hydration Interlink technology
- Positively charged silk molecules interlock into with the hair’s natural structure to build strength and resilience and to improve moisture and shine
