How to Make Curls Last 15 Hours: Hair Secrets from Lifetime’s Devious Maids


I’m not sure about you guys but i’m super excited about the new Lifetime show Devious Maids , I saw the pilot and OMG its HOT and i feel like i got Desperate Housewives back with  a little Latin flavor. Created by Desperate Housewives’ mastermind Marc Cherry with executive producer Eva Longoria, Lifetime’s new TV series Devious Maids starring Susan Lucci, Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sánchez, Edy Ganem, and Judy Reyes is ready to premiere this Sunday June 23rd.

With the show featuring a simply beautiful cast with gorgeous tresses to match, department head hairstylist Richard Boggs shares his secrets for how he makes the cast’s sexy tousled waves last for hours on end with his special mix of White Sands Hair Care to create “The 15 Hour Products”.

“We are so excited for the debut of Devious Maids! The show has a large cast, 15 actors. Sometimes, all working on the same day,” reveals hair department head stylist Richard Boggs.

“So, we love working with White Sands Hair Care Products because it’s reliable and there are no surprises. With as large of cast as Devious Maids, I work with two assistants, who assist me in creating and maintaining the looks of all our lovely actors which range from Susan Lucci to Anna Ortiz and Roselyn Sanchez. At any given point, you will see White Sands in our hands assisting in creating their desired looks.”

“The 15 Hour Products” for a flawless waves after a 15 hour day of shooting:

  • White Sands is a staple back bar item as well. When an actor steps into the trailer for a 4am call time, we shampoo and condition with White Sands Vegan Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner to thoroughly cleanse, while infusing a vital moisture balance back into each strand.


  • This is followed up with a generous amount of White Sands Curl Up in Silk Mousse from the scalp to the ends of the hair shaft. This is a must for a 15 hour shooting day!


  • I always stress to my staff to start from the ground up and section off one-inch partings starting at the nape area, and spray the entire head with White Sands Liquid Texture Firm Hold Thermal Styling Spray. This thermal protectant is our secret to keep styles in place on set even after a long day of shooting. Plus, the hair has an amazing glass-like sheen!


  • With these one-inch sections prepped for hold and shine, use a large barrel curling iron, utilizing the Marcel styling technique from roots to end.
Have fun with this one ladies!
