Tricks of the Trade With Patrick Wilson
ghd creative artist, Patrick Wilson, is a celeb and session favourite, with an enviable list of clients and an Instagram following that’s out of this world. Here he reveals his unique tips and trade secrets that will transform the way you think about hair.
1. A toothbrush isn't just for teeth!
This is a backstage favourite I use all the time to get rid of those annoying baby hairs. It acts like an “ultra mini brush” and gets into places that a normal brush can’t. Simply spritz the toothbrush with ghd final fix hairspray and tame those fly-aways!
4. The pinch
You may have seen models such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley doing this trick before a photo and thought ‘what is that?’ and ‘why is she doing that?’ But it really works! If you have a centre part, just pinch the parting and spray it with a light mist of ghd final fix hairspray. This frames the face and gives that Bardot look to a fringe.
6. Ever tried to cover your bobble on your ponytail?
A lot of people wrap a section of hair around the pony and grip it in, leaving the pin coming out on the other side: Not a great look. You don’t actually need a pin for this. A top tip that I always use behind the scenes is to use hairspray. Simply wrap the hair around the bobble of the ponytail, and each time the hair goes around spray in with ghd final fix hairspray. Once the hair is fully wrapped around the pony, use the ghd air® hair dryer on the cool setting to set into place. It will feel really secure and you won’t have any pins on show.
