step one: Smooth hair back with paddle brush and secure in pony
Using a ghd paddle brush, smoothly work the hair to the back of your head, ensuring to keep in line with your jaw bone. Then secure the hair into a ponytail with an elastic tie.
step two: Apply hairspray to hands and run over hair
Spray ghd final fix hairspray on your hands and smooth over the surface of the hair.
step three: Wrap section of hair around base of pony and secure
Take a section of hair from the underneath of the ponytail and wrap it around the base to cover the elastic, then secure it place with a hair pin.
step four: In thin sections, crimp hair
Taking a thin section of the ponytail, place the ghd contour® at the top of the section and clamp for 4-6 seconds.
step five: Continue to work down section of hair
Release the ghd contour® and clamp again immediately below, continuing down the section of hair.
step six: Repeat across entire ponytail
Complete the entire ponytail using the same technique seen in step four and five.
