How to get slicked back wavy hair
1. Blow-dry hair
2. Twist wrap hair with a curl tong
3. Comb back hair with detangling comb
4. Set in shape with cool air
step two: Twist wrap hair with a curl tong
Using the ghd curve® soft curl tong, create loose movement in the hair using a twist wrap technique. Simply twist a 2-3 inch section of hair and then wind it around the styler. This technique creates a looser, more natural looking curl that looks great when it drops into a wave.
Tip: Once the hair has cooled, use your fingers to loosen curls further to create your perfect wavy hairstyle.
step three: Comb back hair with detangling comb
Apply gel around the hairline with your fingers and comb back through your hair, using a ghd detangling comb. Wet look gel creates a distinctive, slicked back finish that will get you noticed. Add product gradually to avoid product build up that may detract from the style.
step four: Set in shape with cool air
Set the hair into shape with a blast of cool air from the ghd air® hairdryer.
