Here’s how to create runwave curls

3. Prep dry hair

4. Curl hair using a straightener

5. Loosen curls with detangling comb

step one: Prep damp hair

Apply three to five pumps of ghd straight and tame cream to palm and smooth your locks before styling. Spread the product evenly throughout your hair, using your fingers to distribute.

step two: Blow-dry hair

Using the ghd air® hairdryer, blow-dry the straight and tame cream into your hair with help from the ghd size 3 ceramic vented radial brush.

Tip: To make blow drying easier, section hair into layers before you begin, clipping all excess hair out of the way.

step three: Prep dry hair

Take a small 1-2 inch section of hair and spritz lightly with ghd curl hold spray to help support your hair and achieve long-lasting curls.

step four: Curl hair using a straightener

Place the section of hair between the plates of the ghd gold® styler, rotate 180° and glide through to the ends to create a beautiful soft curl.

step five: Loosen curls with detangling comb

Repeat steps four and five throughout your locks. Once all the hair has been curled, lightly brush through your tresses with the ghd detangling comb to create a soft curly hairstyle.
