We got our hands on a rendering of Ouidad Salon opening Tuesday, October 14 at 1230 Montana Avenue in Santa Monica. The salon, which specializes in curly-haired clients, will mimic the NYC outpost in design, and stylists have been trained in the Ouidad "carving and slicing" cutting method and the "rake and shake" styling technique (which oddly, both sound apropos of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday). If you're looking for the Lead Stylist, ask for Morgan.
