5. Continue to the back of your head

6. Repeat on the other side

7. Brush out the curls

step one: Section your hair

Separate your hair into sections, clipping the top layer out of the way. Then, starting from the front of your head, pick a one inch section of hair.

Tip: Use the ghd heat protect spray before you style to protect your locks from damage.

step two: Use a styler to start your curls

Starting at the root, place the section of hair between the plates of your ghd gold® styler. Twist the styler 90º away from your face.

step three: Create a ribbon curl

Glide your styler from the root to the ends to craft a ribbon curl.

step four: Take the next section and curl in the same direction

Move on to the next one-inch section and create another curl, ensure your curls all face the same direction for a flawless end style.

step five: Continue to the back of your head

Repeat steps two through four until you reach the back of your head.

step six: Repeat on the other side

Go over the other side of your hair, creating twists in a uniform direction away from your face, until you have a full head of curls

step seven: Brush out the curls

Taking a ghd detangling comb, brush through each section, working from the underneath to break up the curls into waves.

Tip: lock your big waves in place with a generous spritz of ghd final fix hairspray.

Take your locks to a new level of sassy style with this tousled hair look. Big glamorous waves will wow at your next event or turn heads at a party. Whatever you’re styling for, with this guide as your muse, you’ll rock the look and achieve a salon quality finish.
