Ashley James x ghd :
Day 3 at Coachella 2019

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2019

ghd Guest Artist Patrick Wilson, styled influencer Ashley James for Coachella 2019. Taking inspiration from the heat of the desert to keep this celebrity cool, microbraids are the perfect style for this.

Style hair using the ghd curve® classic curl tong to create a deep S wave throughout and braid down one side of the head, finishing with neon elastics for an extra pop of colour. Pulling the braids loosely create an undone finish for a super boho vibe.

Finish the look with a spritz of ghd final shine spray to keep second or even third day hair looking glossy.

How to recreate Ashley's look

1. Create a deep side parting in the hair using the end of the ghd tail comb and spritz ghd heat protect through the hair for hold and protection.

2. Create S waves in the hair using the ghd curve® classic curl tong. Keep the hair flat as you feed it through the barrel to create a wide curl with lots of volume. The secret to this is curl is to ensure the hair is kept flat and to use wider sections.

3. Create three micro and tight plaits throughout the hair and secure with neon elastics. Finish by pulling breaking up the plait slightly for a looser finish.

4. Spray hair with ghd final shine spray to add shine, gloss and light definition.
