HERE’S HOW TO GET A VINTAGE UPDO HAIRSTYLE:

1. Create a top section of hair

2. Craft volume in the upper section

3. Smooth out the upper section

4. Twist and secure your quiff in place

5. Take a one-inch section of hair and create a curl

6. Repeat throughout locks

7. Brush curls out into soft waves

STEP-BY-STEPS

Step one:
Create a top section of hair

Using the ghd tail comb, separate the top area of the hair away from the bottom. Use the recession points and the crown as a guide - this will create a halo section.

Step two:
Craft volume in the upper section

Using the ghd narrow dressing brush, take the top section of hair and gently back comb at the roots. Secure the extra volume in place with a spritz of ghd final fix hairspray.

Step three:
Smooth out the upper section

With the ghd paddle brush, gently smooth out any flyaways. Simply brush the outer areas of hair so you don’t lose any of the volume you created earlier.

Step four:
Twist and secure your quiff in place

Once your top section looks smooth, twist it twice to create a smooth quiff hairstyle, then take the end towards the back of your head. Use a hair pin to secure it in place.

Step five:
Take a one-inch section of hair and create a curl

On the remaining hair, take a one-inch section of hair and place the ghd gold® styler diagonally at the root. Rotate 180⁰ away from the face and glide the styler to the ends of the hair.

Step six:
Repeat throughout locks

Repeat step five through the remaining hair, ensuring all the hair is curled in the same direction, until you have a full head of curled locks.

Step seven:
Brush curls out into soft waves

Take the ghd oval dressing brush and gently brush out the curls to create soft, sultry waves.

Tip: Spritz the final look with the ghd final shine spray for a glamorous finish and a nod to shimmering vintage hairstyles.
