Smooth Waves

The ultimate in Smart/Casj style; if ever there was a 'jeans and nice top' hairdo, this would be it! Not too fussy, yet chic enough for any Christmas do; tousled ripples partnered with straight ends are a modern update to classic, curly, party hair.

The key technique to achieve this look is resisting the temptation to curl the full length of your hair. It might feel unnatural, but trust us! Leaving the tips of your hair smooth will have your fellow party goers begging for your stylist number!

After using the ghd gold® styler to craft your curls, dress out your hair with the ghd oval dressing brush for the perfect Smooth Waves. Follow our step-by-step guide to see how to achieve the full look.
