THE STORY:

Get ready to “drop the mic” on the beauty aisles at Target stores this December. The Doux® (pronounced The Do) is a “new school” modern hair care system with an “old school edge.” With packaging that is bold and bright and product titles inspired by 90’s hip hop, The Doux is poised to kill it with those seeking a way to smoothing curly, kinky, and wavy hair into both, curly or straight styles.

Created by Maya Smith, a 25-year celebrity stylist and International Curl Master, The Doux was first launched in Europe in 2011 in response to her passion for helping people master the hair they were born with. STRAIGHT, NATURAL, CURLY, or RELAXED, according to The Doux, if you grew it, it’s ALL GOOD. “I was living in Germany at the time, had my own salon there and my specialty was helping clients to transition to a relaxer-free lifestyle. I’m obsessed with people maximizing the potential of the hair they were born with. Mastering curls is my passion and purpose,” explains Smith.

The people felt her passion through her products. The Doux blew up overseas so much so that it caught the attention of media in the USA. “Once we started getting press in the states the demand for The Doux was incredible. I had to return to the states and see this vision through,” Maya Smith explains. In 2014, Maya opened The DOUX Salon™ in Macon Georgia’s historic Downtown district and started selling her professional grade products at her salons and on-line.

Fast-forward three years and a lot of work and dedication, The Doux will arrive in Target stores, on Christmas Eve; no easy feat for an indie brand. “We are so excited to bring The Doux to the masses. It’s 20 years in the making. We listened to 20 years of feedback from actual clients from Minneapolis to Morocco. We listened to what people wanted, a salon grade, high quality product that delivered on its promises. Helping people to manage and maintain their natural hair and celebrate their own bold, unique style is what the last 25 years of my professional life has been about,” Maya Smith shares.

The Doux also redesigned its packaging, with the intention to disrupt the category. It’s bold with bright colors, which is the opposite of the more subdued look you see on the shelves currently. “I’m a fan of 90’s rap so I wanted to incorporate lyrics and titles in the packaging,” adds Smith. With titles such as Bonita Afro Balm, Mousse Def, Sucka Free, Fresh Rinse, and The Light, The Doux will most definitely catch the eyes of Millennials and Gen X’ers alike.

Other products in the line include:

*BONITA AFRO BALM™ Shine Enhancing Texture Cream Delivers shine and manageability for pixies, Afro’s, tapered cuts, and twist/braid/coil sets. Certified organic botanicals, alcohol & paraben free. MSRP: $15.99.

and

*THE LIGHT™ Shine Mist Preserves color and protects hair from heat styling. Reduces drying time and delivers weightless shine to finished looks. Adds natural luster to natural styles. Infused with Black Cacao, Passion Fruit, and Palm Oil. MSRP: $14.99.

Nicole Kidman Dazzles at the 2016 Critic’s Choice Awards

unnamed-2

 

Tonight, at the 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards held at Santa Monica Airport’s Barker Hangar in California, Nicole Kidman shined on the red carpet in her gorgeous gown and sleek hair style. Her go-to hairstylist, Kylee Heath, used MOP haircare and Cricket Co. products to create this glamorous and sophisticated look.

Please see below the step-by-step, imagery can be found here and let me know if you need any additional information!

Hairstylist: Kylee Heath

Inspiration: “The dress, we wanted to keep the hair classic, but also modern and sleek”

Style: Middle part low twisted knot with the hair fanned out to the side

“I started off by applying MOP Lemongrass Lift ($22) to Nicole’s roots and Pear Detangler ($22) to the ends. Then I combed the product evenly through the hair 

Next, I blow-dried the hair using the Ultra Smooth™ Professional Hair Dryer ($96.95) and Technique™ Silk Thermal 370 1.75″ ($15.99) round brush to really smooth out the hair

At the crown, I blow-dried the hair in an upward motion to give it more lift

Once the hair was dry I smoothed out the hair from midshaft to end with the Ultra Smooth™ Professional Styling Iron($89.95)

 I warmed MOP molding cream ($22) in my hands and used it to smooth out ends, tame flyaways and to lay down the cuticle 

Then, I pulled all of Nicole’s hair back low at the nape of her neck, twisted the hair around my hand and secured it using small bobby pins leaving the ends of the hair out so that they fanned out toward the side

 Next I sprayed the C-system Firm Finish Hairspray($24) for hold and added shine

 Last, we decided to pull two small pieces of hair from the front for added softness”
