CHI Congratulates New Miss Universe & Looks Back at Show Highlights (Including Her Winning Look)

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.

Many of this year’s biggest beauty trends have a retro-inspired ‘90s vibe, including the go-to cut of the season: The Angled Bob.

Reigning Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters shows us how longer hair lengths can still wear the look, sporting a faux version of this autumn’s “it” style. CHI Elite Artist Melissa Gonzalez used CHI’s innovative and award-winning CHI LAVA 1” Hairstyling Iron to create soft waves before pinning and tucking the hair.

“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.”

#TBT: CHI Sponsors Sherri Hill Spring/Summer 2019 Collection at New York Fashion Week

#TBT: CHI Sponsors Sherri Hill Spring/Summer 2019 Collection at New York Fashion Week

On Friday, September 7, 2018 at Gotham Hall, CHI’s team of hairstylists, led by Global Artist Tammy Mixon, was on hand to create the runway looks for Sherri Hill’s Spring/Summer 2019 Collection during New York Fashion Week. The hairstyles for the show included a dazzling collection of “Free-Flowing” looks created using a wide array of CHI Haircare styling products and innovative tools.

“The inspiration behind the hair for Sherri Hill’s show this year was natural and airy looks whether the hair was long or bob length. There was no definition, only hair that moved freely and was naturally beautiful,” explains Mixon.

For this year’s show, Miss Universe 2017, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, and and Miss Teen USA 2018, Hailey Colborn, attended while reigning Miss USA 2018, Sarah Rose Summers, graced the runway.

Steps to Recreate the NYFW CHI styles:

1) Each model was prepped with CHI Silk Infusion from the mid-shaft to the ends.

2) Prior to curling with the CHI LAVA Pro Spin N Curl or straightening with the CHI LAVA 1” Hairstyling Iron, each section was lightly misted with CHI 44 Iron Guard.

3) Next, each section was misted with CHI Enviro 54 Natural Hold Hairspray and brushed out.

4) To finish and create the light, airy look after styling, the hair was blown dry by combining the CHI Turbo Ceramic Round Brush and the CHI Nano Dryer to loosen and smooth the hair for the “Free-Flowing” look.
