Here’s how to get a sleek and crimped hairstyle
1. Create triangle section of hair and secure rest away
2. Take small section, place in crimper at root and hold
3.Continue down to the end of the section
4. Repeat up triangular section
5. Repeat on other side of head
step one: Create triangle section of hair and secure rest away
Begin by prepping the hair with ghd heat protect spray and smoothing out with the ghd paddle brush. Then create a triangle section of hair above the ear on one side and secure the remaining hair out of the way using clips.
TIP: For a sleeker look before crimping, work the ghd platinum® styler through your hair.
step two: Take small section, place in crimper at root and hold
Take a small section of hair then, starting at the bottom of the triangle, place the ghd contour® underneath the hair root and hold firmly for 4-8 seconds.
step three: Continue down to the end of the section
Continue to use the ghd contour®, as seen in step two, all the way down to the end of the triangular section you have created.
step four: Repeat up triangular section
As you add in more hair, crimp the hair back up to the top of the triangular section.
step five: Repeat on other side of head
To balance the look out, use the ghd contour® to style an additional section of crimped hair on the opposite side from behind the ear.
TIP: Finish your crimped hairstyle by spraying ghd final shine spray across the whole head for a glossy look.
