Here’s how to create soft curls with movement

1. Create parting and mist with curl hold spray.

2. Place styler at root, rotate and pull through hair

3. Repeat on both sides of head

4. Repeat at the parting, in diagonal sections

5. Work through curls with detangling comb

step one: Create parting and mist with curl hold spray

Create your desired parting, then take a curved section of hair from your temple to the back of your neck. Starting from the front, mist a diagonal sub-section of approximately 2cm with ghd curl hold spray.

step two: Place styler at root, rotate and pull through hair

Place your ghd platinum® styler in at the root area, then following the same angle as the section of hair, rotate the styler 180 degrees and start to glide the styler through the hair. As you reach the midway point, tilt the tip of your ghd platinum® styler so that it is now vertical, and continue to glide through the hair to the ends.

step three: Repeat on both sides of head

Repeat technique to complete both sides of the head. Follow the same sectioning pattern and technique work upwards to the parting.

step four: Repeat at the parting, in diagonal sections

At the parting, continue with diagonal sections and follow the same technique as used in step three.

step five: Work through curls with detangling comb

Dress out the curls using a ghd detangling comb to bring that added soft curl movement to your hair and finish with a spritz of ghd final fix hairspray

Fashioning long hairstyles with modern movement can bring a refreshed touch to your style. Follow the ghd guide on creating long curly hair and make your locks gorgeously glam.
