Go behind the scenes with ghd x Victoria Beckham and discover how to get perfectly straight hair with our step-by-step tutorial.

“Studying a collection with a designer like Victoria and deciding how to style the hair is an intuitive and instinctive process. This time a glossy, sleek and luxurious look felt right. We wanted something totally minimal and modern" – Guido, international session stylist 

Get catwalk-worthy, luxuriously glossy, straight hair with the help of ghd. The ghd platinum+ styler will give you sultry, smooth locks that last, thanks to our ultra-zone technology. This tech evenly heats the plates, providing you with an even style from root to tip, throughout styling.

Taken from the runways of New York Fashion Week, follow our step-by-step guide to getting straight hair, as styled on the models for Victoria Beckham’s show. 

Here’s how to straighten hair for a catwalk finish:

1. Prep damp hair with product

2. Create a centre parting and blow-dry

3. Glide your styler from root to tip for sleek, straight hair and a glossy finish

step one: Prep damp hair with product

Apply ghd heat protect spray to clean, damp hair. This will protect your hair from heat styling and help keep your style smooth.

step two: Create centre parting and blowdry

Create a centre parting and blow-dry hair using the ghd natural bristle radial brush size 2 and the ghd air® hairdryer for a sleek finish. Keep the hair pulled tight as you move the brush and the hairdryer through the lengths of hair, helping to set the style in a straight finish.

Tip: To help create a defined centre parting, use the ghd tail comb to create a straight line.

step three: Glide styler from root to tip

Finally, glide the ghd platinum+ styler over hair from root to tip to eliminate flyaways and achieve glossy, super straight hair. To recreate the looks seen on the Victoria Beckham catwalk, finish by tucking your hair behind your ears and leave your tresses to hang loose at the back. Smooth down your parting with the ghd oval dressing brush and finish the whole look with the ghd final shine spray for added glossiness.

Follow the steps above for catwalk worthy style. This straight hairstyle is perfect for everyday wear or even for an effortless night out look. Cool, contemporary and effortless to wear, this is your new versatile go-to. Use your ghd toolkit to achieve long-lasting, poker straight locks.
