Braid Straight

Shake up your style this season with a revitalised take on straight hair. Create modern movement with the Braid Straight look; the perfect relaxed style for autumn soirees and winter retreats. Achieve subtly chic wavy hair by braiding your hair and having the ghd styling kit by your side.

Creating this wavy-straight hairstyle is hassle-free. Using ghd total volume foam and ghd straight & tame cream will give you the perfect prep. Then blow dry the hair with the ghd air® hairdryer, keeping the nozzle facing down for a polished look. The key to achieving this look is braiding the mid-lengths of the hair and creating a soft ‘S’ shape in the ends. Gliding the ghd gold® styler over the braids seals in the shape for a perfectly imperfect straight style. For a final embellished touch, add some gold pigment to the roots of your hair.

This Spring/Summer, refresh your tresses with the Braid Straight. Follow the ghd how-to guide to achieve an effortless look with ease.
