We’re sure you’re already aware of the hair, scalp and body giant that is OUAI , but just in case you’re not, lets get into it.

OUAI, pronounced ‘way’ is a slang way of saying yes, kinda like ‘yeah’, in French, or more specifically, in Parisian. This is a not so subtle nod to the inherit chicness that OUAI is all about!

The mother of OUAI is none other than celebrity hair stylist, a member of the Kardashian’s inner circle and lady-entrepreneur, Jen Atkin.

“I’ve used every hair product on the market and spent years talking to my clients and social followers about their hair. I’ve struggled to find a haircare brand that my friends and I could relate to. It was my goal to take these conversations and create the first socially-connected haircare brand.” – Jen

OAUI is all about caring for hair types of all backgrounds, skins of all tones and textures and Atkin even included a range for our fur babies. Thats right, you can shop posh shampoos and more for your pooch!

Feeling like you’re unsure of where to start when it comes to these deliciously smelling, performance-guaranteed and luxurious products? NO OUAI, here are some suggestions.

Some of Atkins most coved products have to be Wave Spray, Body Créme and Fur Bebe Shampoo.

Way before Kim Kardashian attempted to monopolise the shapewear and undergarment market, SPANX existed.

Yes, SPANX walked, so SKIMS could eventually run, but we havent forgotten about the woman behind the revolutionary shapewear brand that reshaped the undergarment category, forever.

Back in 1998, genius was born when SPANX‘s female founder, Sara Blakely was getting ready for a party and due to not having the right undergarment, took to a pair of pantyhose with some scissors. The rest? Well thats history!

With a focus on solving wardrobe woes, the SPANX brand has since grown to offer bras, underwear, leggings, active and more. SPANX has secured its place in women’s hearts and in pop-culture, thanks to becoming a household name and owning this category until the 2010’s when Kardashian disrupted the industry.

In March of 2012, Founder Sara was named the world’s youngest, self-made female billionaire by Forbes Magazine and one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People. Go girl!

The SPANX of today exists as a force of inclusion as it allows women of all shapes, sizes, colours and styles to feel great in their outfits. SPANX is all about supporting and nurturing women’s confidence, and we think it’s a brand built on beautiful foundations.
