Here’s how to create the Freestyle Feather
1. Spray hair with heat protector
2. Section hair from ear to ear and secure away, then place styler at root and glide to end
3. Repeat across head, working up to parting
4. Create triangle section above ear and secure rest of hair away, then crimp section
5. Continue to end of section
6. Repeat on full triangle
7. Add crimped section on opposite side of head
8. Coat paddle brush in final shine spray
9. Work brush through hair
step one: Spray hair with heat protectant
To give your hair protection from the heat of styling, prepare your locks with ghd heat protect spray.
step two: Section hair from ear to ear and secure away, then place styler at root and glide to end
Section the hair from ear to ear and secure with clips. Then place the ghd platinum® styler at root and gently glide through hair to ends.
step three: Repeat across head, working up to parting
Continue around the head, then work up in sections towards the parting.
step four: Create triangle section above ear and secure rest of hair away, then crimp section
Take a triangular section of hair just above the ear on one side of your head and secure remainder of the hair with clips. Starting at the bottom of the triangle, place ghd contour™ at the root and clamp firmly for 4-8 seconds.
step five: Continue to end of section
Continue down to the end of the section
step six: Repeat on full triangle section
Repeat this technique on the entire triangular section until the full section is complete
step seven: Add crimped section on opposite side of head
To balance the look, add an additional crimped section on the opposite side from behind the ears, using the same method seen in step four.
step eight: Coat paddle brush in final shine spray
Spray ghd final shine spray onto the ghd paddle brush.
step nine: Work brush through hair
To finish your Freestyle Feather look, smooth through the hair with the paddle brush - including over the crimped hair - to soften the texture as you desire.
