CHI Haircare, The Winning Looks: Miss USA & Miss Teen USA 2019 Hair Tutorials by CHI Haircare

Just a few days ago, 51 accomplished women from around the country competed for the title at the 68th annual Miss USA pageant held at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno-Tahoe. Miss North Carolina, Cheslie Kryst, won the crown to become our new Miss USA, succeeding Sarah Rose Summers. The weekend before Kaliegh Garris earned the Miss Teen USA title. As the official haircare sponsor for both pageants, CHI Haircare was there every step of the way from backstage to the live show main stage, ensuring all the contestants were provided the best hair care and styling using the latest and most innovative CHI Products and Tools.

Natural curls reigned supreme for both newly-minted pageant winners. In fact, Kaliegh is the first Miss Teen USA to be crowned while sporting natural curls in TWO DECADES!

As the Official Haircare Sponsor, CHI’s brand-new Aloe Vera with Agave Nectar Haircare Line was used to achieve the beautifully defined styles on both title holders. This 7-piece curl collection provides solutions to enhance definition, moisturize each spiral, and maintain frizz for smoother styling.

Hairstylist Joy Williams, Executive Master Educator for CHI, styled both Miss USA 2019 Cheslie Kryst and Miss Teen USA 2019 Kaliegh Garris. Joy shares her styling tips for their winning looks– all created with CHI’s new launches at ULTA Beauty.

“Most curly girls do not shampoo their hair every day because curls crave moisture,” explains Hairstylist Joy Williams, Executive Master Educator for CHI. “To define Cheslie’s second- and third-day curls, I used the CHI Aloe Vera Curl Reactivating Spray. This spray not only reactivates the CHI Aloe Vera products I previously applied, but retightens any loose curls and eliminates frizz.”

1. Begin by shampooing hair with the CHI Aloe Vera Curl Enhancing Shampoo (rinse and repeat)

2. Towel dry hair to remove excess moisture and follow up with CHI Aloe Vera Detangling Conditioner

3. Once conditioner is saturated, use either a wide tooth comb or your fingers and gently comb through the hair starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots.

4. Lightly towel dry the ends of the hair. Be careful not to rub too vigorously as the curls have begun to define as a result of the low pH of the CHI Aloe Vera products.

5. Now, use the LOC method to lock in moisture and hydration while defining those beautiful curls. The LOC Method stands for:

  • L- Leave-In/Liquid
  • O- Oil
  • C- Cream

6. I like to start the LOC Method after the conditioner with the CHI Aloe Vera Humidity Resistant Leave-In Conditioner (The “L” in LOC). Curly hair needs this added conditioning. The Agave Nectar infuses moisture and improves elasticity of her curls while the Aloe Vera gives incredible shine and softness. Using either a wide tooth comb or your fingers, apply from root to ends. By now, her curls are beautifully defined and bouncy as the natural ingredients and low pH of the CHI Aloe Vera Line have tightened the cuticle and saturated the hair with moisture. From this point, we are simply locking in that moisture for long lasting results.

7. Next, I used the CHI Aloe Vera Oil (The “O” in LOC). I slowly rubbed the oil along the hair being careful not to disturb the curl pattern I just defined. A little goes a long way but I use as much as I feel she needs to lock in moisture and shine.

8. Finally, I sealed that definition by using the CHI Aloe Vera Moisturizing Curl Cream (The “C” in LOC). I pumped about a quarter size amount as needed. I rubbed the cream between my hands and then applied it to her hair by scrunching each of her curls in sections. One of my favorite tips for added definition is to finger coil individual curls. I make a cocktail of the Moisturizing Curl Cream and the CHI Aloe Vera Oil and twist the hair around my index finger from midshaft to ends. This technique removes any frizz and makes the ends of the curls pop!

9. My ultimate pro tip: I set the curl definition for days of beautifully defined curls by using my CHI Lava Blow Dryer with the locking diffuser attachment. I achieved this look by cupping her curls in the attachment and using medium to high heat. The volcanic lava technology in the CHI Lava Dryer allowed me to quickly set the curl while its honeycomb lava disk distributes negative ions locking in moisture, preventing frizz and adding shine. You will notice that our unique design and patented technology does not burn the scalp or cause discomfort even on high.

Then, we scrunched her hair in sections with the CHI Aloe Moisturizing Curl Cream finishing up with the CHI Aloe Vera Oil for ultimate shine!”

1. Begin by shampooing hair with the CHI Aloe Vera Curl Enhancing Shampoo (rinse and repeat)

2. Towel dry hair to remove excess moisture and follow up with CHI Aloe Vera Detangling Conditioner.

3. Once conditioner is saturated, use either a wide tooth comb or your fingers and gently comb through the hair starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots.

4. Lightly towel dry the ends of the hair. Be careful not to rub too vigorously as the curls have begun to define as a result of the low pH of the CHI Aloe.

5. Now, I cocktailed a few of the CHI Aloe Vera with Agave Nectar products keeping in mind the LOC method to lock in moisture and hydration while defining those beautiful curls. Layering the product in this way ensures perfectly defined curls with long-lasting moisture and softness.

6. Kaliegh naturally has beautiful ringlet curls so we don’t want to disturb her curl pattern. Therefore, for the rest of her styling I used my fingers. First, I used the CHI Aloe Vera Humidity Resistant Leave-In Conditioner, distributing it from roots to ends. The Agave Nectar infuses moisture and improves elasticity of her curls while the Aloe Vera gives incredible shine and softness.

7. Next, my favorite thing to do is to cocktail the CHI Aloe Vera Oil and the CHI Aloe Vera Moisturizing Curl Cream. I used a couple of pumps of each product, about a quarter sized amount total. I rubbed this into my palms and applied the products by scrunching the hair in sections. Scrunching keeps her curl pattern intact and prevents frizz.

8. Finally, I gave added definition to her hair by finger coiling individual curls. I applied a little more of the CHI Aloe Vera Oil and twisted the hair around my index finger from mid-shaft to ends. This technique removes any frizz and makes the ends of the curls pop!
