step two: Section hair from crown to ear
Separate the hair from the crown to the back of the ear.

Starting at the bottom, take a diagonal section and place the ghd curve ® classic wave wand below the hair pointing towards the face.
step four: Twist wrap hair
Twist wrap the hair over the barrel of the wand and hold for 5-8 seconds.
step five: Repeat step 4 up to parting
Repeat step four working up to the parting, always pointing the barrel of the wand towards the face and twist wrapping the hair in the same direction.
step six: Repeat technique on back section, from bottom of hair to crown
On the back section, continue the same technique working from the bottom of the section to the crown.
step seven: On opposite side, create symmetry by facing barrel towards face
On the opposite side of the head to create symmetry, keep pointing the barrel towards the face – this will mean changing hands to hold the wand.
step nine: Light brush through waves
Lightly brush through the hair to form soft waves, using your hands to help form crests.
TOP TIP: To further define waves, spray ghd final fix hairspray into the waves and roll the side of the can gently into the bends.
