Make sultry sleek hair your statement style come party season. Wavy hairstyles don’t have to be flowing and face framing, so flip back your long hair to create a look that exudes passion and supremacy. The slicked back look is anything but bohemian - it’s dangerous, dynamite and dazzling.
For sleek perfection, style your long hair in two stages: create the wavy hair, then slick your locks back. Prep with ghd curl hold spray to create healthy, long-lasting curls. For textured movement, the ghd platinum+ styler delivers one-stroke styling on long hair – alternate the direction of each curl to bring a layered edge to your look. Pump ghd total volume foam through your locks and use the ghd detangling comb to create slicked siren appeal.
Backlash against the long hairstyle regime with a slicked back style that radiates pure glamour, brought to you by ghd.

step one: Prep hair with curl hold spray
Spray the hair with ghd curl hold spray – this will give you a healthy long-lasting look.
step two: Create section from ear to ear
Take a section at the bottom of the head from ear to ear.
step three: Point styler downwards at root, rotate one turn and glide
Place ghd platinum+ styler at the root pointing downwards. Rotate the styler one full turn towards the face, and glide to the ends.
step four: Repeat across section
Repeat this technique across the section always curling in the same direction.
step five: On next section, rotate one turn away from face and glide
On the next section, rotate the styler one full turn away the face, and glide to the ends - changing the direction will result in a tousled texture.
step six: Repeat steps 3 and 5 on all layers
Continue working in layers up the hair always alternating the direction of the curl with every layer.
step seven: Dress hair with detangling comb for texture
Dress the hair keeping in the texture by gently combing through the hair with a ghd detangling comb.
step eight: Brush hair back with comb
Brush the hair back at the root with the comb so the direction is all towards the back of the head and behind the ears.
step nine: Apply volume foam to detangling comb and slick back through hair
To slick back the sides, apply a generous amount of ghd total volume foam to the detangling comb and comb the hair back away from the face at the root.
step ten: Spray final fix hairspray on hair
To finish, immediately apply ghd final fix hairspray to the hair to hold in its place and to maintain a wet look.
step eleven: Accent hair with clips
To finish your slicked back hair, accent the look with hair clips at the back of the ears.
