Here’s how to straighten and style straight hair

1. Glide styler through hair

2. Take diagonal section of hair and tuck hair behind ear

3. Smooth hair, secure in place and spritz with hairspray

step one: Glide styler through hair

Take a one to two inch section of hair and place it in between the plates of your ghd platinum+ styler. Start at the roots and pull down in one straight motion to get that salon-straight finish.

step two: Take diagonal section of hair and tuck hair behind ear

Use your ghd tail comb to take a diagonal section of hair, running from your parting to behind your ear and tucking it back.

step three: Smooth hair, secure in place and spritz with hairspray

Smooth your hair from root to tip using the ghd oval dressing brush. Secure this signature straight hairstyle with a clip to hold everything in place and finish with a spritz of ghd final fix hairspray

Tip:When gliding the ghd platinum+ styler over your hair, lead with a brush to remove knots and provide tension so you can get that salon quality finish

Channel that model chic style with the help of ghd - guilt-freestyling never looked so good. Straight hair adds instant glamour to any outfit and acts as the perfect base to create a standout look with fierce headpieces, stunning hair jewellery or glitzy clips packed with attitude.
