1. Product prep
Starting with freshly washed, towel-dried hair, apply a root lifting spray to the roots and ghd Style Heat Protect Spray to the lengths of your hair.
2. Build volume
Using ghd air® on medium speed and medium heat, tip your head upside down and blast-dry the roots first to build volume, followed by the lengths. When your hair is about 50% dry you’re ready to start using a brush.
3. Use your brush
Take the ghd Ceramic Vented Radial Brush (size 3) and turn up the speed and heat settings on ghd air®. Starting at the front, begin drying section-by-section. Lift each section up and away from the roots, wrapping it around the brush while directing air flow at the barrel. Work the sections back from your face so you don’t create a parting.
4. Set the volume
Once each section is dry, use the cool shot button to cool the warm hair around the brush. This will immediately set your volume. When cool, gently back-brush at the roots to create extra body. Finally, wind the section back on itself into a loop and secure to your head with a clip.
5. Finish Drying
Continue this technique through the sides and back of your hair. Don’t forget to use the cold shot on every section you dry. Vary the size of your sections as you dry as this will create a loose and undone style of blow-dry.
6. Blow it cold
Once all your sections are dry, cooled and pinned into loops, turn down your speed to the gentlest setting and carefully blow over the sections with cold air to both set and loosen the hair.
7. Let it loose
As you unpin each section, add a little more backcombing at the root and mist lightly with a good hairspray.
8. Blend the sections
Finish the front of your style with a slight backcomb around the hairline, then tilt your head back and blend your sections by tousling with your hands.
