HERE’S HOW TO CREATE A MODERN STRAIGHT
Modern Straight - Prep hair with root lift spray

step one: Prep hair with root lift spray

To help create lift and volume, prep the dry hair with ghd root lift spray.

Modern Straight - Lift up hair and blow dry hair away from root

step two: Lift up hair and blow dry hair away from root

Blow dry the hair with ghd air® hairdryer and ghd paddle brush, lifting the airflow up and away from the roots for volume.

Modern Straight - Blow dry mid-lengths and ends from root to tip

step three: Blow dry mid-lengths and ends from root to tip

Blow dry the mid-lengths and ends of the hair, directing the air flow from root to tip.

Use the arch of your eyebrow to find a parting, then continue drying the top section with same technique as in step three.

Modern Straight- Section hair at front, place styler in mid length and glide

step five: Section hair at front, place styler in mid length and glide

Section the hair at the front (1-inch deep section), then place the ghd platinum® styler in at the mid-length and gently close the plates as you glide through hair.

TIP: Closing the styler whilst gliding prevents a dent in the hair.

Modern Straight - Bevel hair at ends

step six: Bevel hair at ends

As you reach the end of the hair with the ghd platinum® styler, create a ‘blow-dry finish’ with a soft bevel, by turning the styler under for a rounder end

Modern Straight - Repeat steps 5 and 6 across head

step seven: Repeat steps 5 and 6 across head

Repeat this process throughout the sections until all the hair is complete, always starting from the mid-length to retain volume at the root with a bevelled end.

Apply ghd final shine spray onto a ghd paddle brush.
