Take the ghd tail comb and begin backcombing your section of hair, working from the ends downwards.

step 4: Lock the look in place
Using the ghd oval dressing brush, smooth over the top and secure in place at the back of your head with two hair pins. Finish with a spritz of ghd final fix hairspray.

step 5: Curl your remaining hair
Use the ghd curve® classic curl tong to curl the rest of your hair in small sections.
