With your ghd straightener in hand, you no longer need a separate curling iron. Style your hair sleek and straight or create fabulous curls whenever you feel like it, all with a twist of your ghd straightener. Your ghd straightener can be your all-inclusive hair styling machine.
Things You'll Need
- ghd straightener
- Heat-protectant spray
- Shinning serum
Wash and dry your hair. Curling washed hair will produce smooth, shiny curls. It's important to dry your hair to minimize the heat damage from your ghd straightener.
Brush your hair thoroughly and apply a heat-protectant spray. This will create a barrier between your hair and ghd straightener, and prevent it from burning.
Separate and tie your hair into five sections. Divide your hair into two equal sections for the back of your head, another two equal sections for the top of your head and finally a section for the crown. Dividing hair makes it easier to curl.
Hold your ghd straightener vertically and take hair an inch in width, from the back of your head, close to the nape of your neck. Clamp your ghd straightener shut, ensuring you hold the ends of the section with your free hand. Rotate your ghd straightener 180 degrees and move it down slowly through the length of hair. When you reach the end, release the curl. Continue the process until you have completed all five sections of hair, finishing with the crown.
Rub a small amount of shining serum in your hands and apply it gently to your curls. This will loosen your curls and give you a disheveled look. For a more defined look and to make your curls last longer, spray them with hairspray. For more great styling ideas, see the ghd website (a link is in Resources, below).
