WATCH: Eric Vaughn’s Big Glossy Waves

As the official hairstylist for Miss Texas and a salon owner in Houston, Eric Vaughn (@realericvaughn) is no stranger to styling pageant hair and creating beauty queen-approved waves, and that’s why he was the perfect BTC team member to have backstage with us and CHI at Miss USA this year!


We grabbed a Facebook Live with him and the newly-crowned Miss Teen USA where he created glossy waves with big volume. Watch the how-to video below, then check out his tips and tricks for creating the look (including his go-to products and tools for the style).




Products Used


Eric’s Go-To Products + Tools For This look:

  1. CHI Lava Hairstyling Iron
    • Eric worked in 1- to 2-inch sections curling and gliding the iron through all the way to the ends.
    • One cool thing about the CHI Lava? It can be set at lower temperatures because its volcanic rock technology allows the heat to stay consistent throughout the entire curling process—creating beautiful end results while always keeping the hair healthy.
  2. Deep Brilliance Lightweight Leave-In Treatment
    • Before curling, Eric used about two pumps and worked it through midlengths to ends.
    • The treatment smooths, softens and keeps the hair protected when working with hot tools.
  3. Deep Brilliance Flexible Hold Hairspray
    • To manage that Louisiana humidity (Miss USA took place in Shreveport, LA.), Eric sprayed each section before curling!
    • The hairspray offers a flexible hold while working and also creates a shiny finish that can last through the highest humidity.
