How to curl hair with a straightener:
1. Section hair
2. Curl with your straightener
3. Repeat on top section
4. Style the front
5. Gently brush out for loose curls
step one: Section your hair
Divide your hair in two to create a top and a bottom section. If your locks are particularly thick you may need to section it into three. Mist your hair with ghd curl hold spray to shield it from the heat and ensure your curls stay in place.
step two: Curl with your straightener
Take a 2-inch section of hair from the lower section and place your ghd platinum+ styler at the root. Rotate it backwards - around 180° - and glide to the ends of your hair to create a curl. Work around your head to completely curl this bottom section. Be sure to curl in alternating directions to create a textured look.
step three: Curl the top section
Release the upper section and continue curling hair. You should be left with a row of defined curls.
step four: Style the front
Take your ghd platinum+ styler and curl the front strands. Always work from the parting and curl these away from your face to frame it.
Follow these tips to create gorgeous, curly hairstyles that move freely, with plenty of bounce.
