How to get sleek straight hair

1. Prep hair with product

2. Split your hair into sections

3. Take a medium section of hair

4. Place the styler at the roots

5. Close plates and glide to the ends

6. Turn styler inward for a smooth finish

7. Repeat throughout

8. Finish with product

step one: Prep hair with product

Prep damp hair using the ghd straight and smooth spray, which helps protect tresses from heat damage as well as creating a smoother and sleeker base for styling. Work the product through your locks, before blow drying with the ghd air® hair dryer.

step two: Split your hair into sections

Starting at eye-level, split your hair into two horizontal sections. Secure the top section on top of your head with a hair tie and let the bottom half hang loose.

step three: Take a medium section of hair

From the bottom half of your hair, take a section of about two to three inches.

step four: Place the styler at the root

Take your ghd platinum+ styler and place it at the root of the section of hair.

step five: Close plates and glide to the ends

With the styler at the roots of your hair, close the plates and gently glide it from the roots towards the ends.

step six: Turn styler inward for smooth finish

As you reach the final one or two inches of your hair, lightly twist your styler inwards so you’re slightly curling your hair towards your face before you continue to the ends. This will help to frame the straight hair around your face for a modern look.

step seven: Repeat throughout

Take the next section and repeat steps three to five. Completely straighten the bottom section of your hair before releasing the top half and repeating.

step eight: Finish with product

Complete the look with a little ghd smooth and finish serum. Take one pump and massage it between your hands before running it through your hair from the roots to the ends.

TIP: Using the ghd oval dressing brush to smooth out the hair as you style will add more shine to the finished look.

Rock a cool modern look and channel a fierce attitude when you create this straight hairstyle with the help of your ghd styling kit.
