Ouidad


ouidad1Curly-haired girls can have a hard time in the hair department. Frizz, knotting, flat spots, unmanageable curls, limp spirals. Straight-haired girls have no idea what we have to go through. That's why there are a slew of curly-haired products on the market, but finding the "right" one for your hair type can be as annoying as trying to spring life into your flat curls. That's where lines like Ouidad come in. Called, "The Curl Experts," Ouidad is a New York and Santa Monica based salon that specializes in cutting and styling curly haired girls. The salon, spearheaded by its master hairstylist, Ouidad, also offers myriad products for every curly hair type out there. In my case, my hair falls somewhere between "wavy" and "curly." (The other options are "tight curly" and "kinky.")

My biggest hair concern is that my curls fall flat, so I've been trying the PlayCurl line of products and I love them. I use the PlayCurl Volumizing Shampoo and conditioner, as well as the Volumizing Foam and Setting & Holiding Spray. After applying the products, I diffuse my hair while putting in Curl Clips to keep the curls in place. When I'm done, I have beautiful curls that are bouncy, fresh, and perfectly defined. There's no turning back.

Best of Santa Cruz County

The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX
