Crimp Dip

Embrace the free-flowing feeling of Spring/Summer with a wild-spirited wavy hairstyle. This isn’t your ordinary waved look – partner worked-out curls with crimped ends for a style fit for the girl of tomorrow.

Let the ghd styling essentials take the hassle out of achieving enviable wavy locks. This look is achieved in three stages; prepping, curling, and crimping hair. A spritz of ghd root lift spray will give your hair that added oomph, whilst ghd curl hold spray will make sure your waves last as long as you do – blow dry them in using the ghd air® hairdryer and a ghd ceramic vented brush for optimum results. The new and improved ghd gold® styler will allow you to craft curls with ease and the ghd contour® will give you crimped textured through to your hair ends.

Reinvent your go-to wavy hairstyle this season with the Crimp Dip. Find out how to get soft ripples with the ghd gold® styler and subtle crimping with the ghd contour® by following this how-to guide.

crimped ends

1. Prep hair with root lift product at the root and mid length

2. Dry in product with hairdryer and brush

3. Spray hair with curl hold product

4. Section hair from ear to ear

5. Place styler at root and rotate half a turn

6. Glide styler 3/4 of way down section

7. Repeat steps 5 & 6 on all hair, alternating direction

8. For texture, place hair crimper at top of straight hair and hold

9. Repeat step 8 on all remaining straight hair

10. Repeat steps 5-9 on all hair

11. Comb through curls

12. Gently brush crimped section with dressing brush

13. Embellish with gold headbands

step one: Prep hair with root lift spray at the root and mid lengths

To get the perfect base for your Crimp Dip, prepare the hair with ghd root lift spray at the root and through the mid-lengths.

step two: Dry in product with hairdryer and brush

Using a ghd air® hairdryer and a ghd size 3 ceramic vented brush, dry the root lift spray in and smooth the hair.

step three: Spray hair with curl hold product

Once dry and smooth, spray the full head with ghd curl hold spray.

step four: Section hair from ear to ear

Section the hair at the bottom of the head from ear to ear.

step five: Place styler at root and rotate half a turn

Place the ghd gold® styler at the root and pointing the styler downwards; rotate the styler 180°.

step six: Glide styler 3/4 of way down section

Glide the styler ¾ of the way down the section of hair to create a wave, leaving the ends of the section straight.

step seven: Repeat steps 5 & 6 on all hair, alternating direction

Repeat around the head, alternating the direction of the rotation for a textured finish. 

TIP: Make sure the sections at either side of the face are curled away from the face.

step eight: For texture, place hair crimper at top of straight hair and hold

To add texture at the bottom, start by placing the ghd contour® at the top of the remaining straight section and hold for 4 seconds, then repeat this down the remaining straight length.

step nine: Repeat step 8 on all remaining straight hair

Repeat the hair crimping throughout the bottom of each straight section to create a ‘crimp dip’.

step ten: Repeat steps 5-9 on all hair

Repeat the technique seen in steps five through to nine, until the whole head has been curled through the mid-lengths and crimped at the ends.

step eleven: Comb through curls

Using a ghd detangling comb, work through the curls to break up the texture.

step twelve: Gently brush crimped section with dressing brush

Brush the crimped sections gently with a ghd oval dressing brush to soften the texture.

step thirteen: embellishment

For an on-trend gold embellishment try layering some thin gold headbands into your wavy hair.
