6 Time-Saving Hair Hacks

Don’t waste a moment of the party with these time-saving tricks that will have you ready for centre stage in minutes.

Let’s face it, getting out of bed in the morning is never easy, even if we are met by bright sunshine outside. If you’d rather save those precious minutes snuggled in bed, follow ghd’s time saving hacks to speed up your hair routine without compromising your look.


1. INVEST IN A QUALITY HAIRDRYER

Invest in a quality hairdryer for fast and efficient drying and to reduce heat damage. The ghd air hairdryer has a powerful professional-strength motor and patented removable air filter that delivers high pressure air flow for super-fast drying, while advanced ionic technology reduces frizz and flyaways to give a smooth salon-style finish in half the time.

2. DON’T FORGET THE NOZZLE

Using the nozzle of your hairdryer concentrates the air flow and channels heat directly to where you need it for a super-speedy blow-dry. Follow the dryer in the direction of the hair (from root to end – facing down the hair) using the ghd oval dressing brush for added shine and smoothness.


3. CLEVER CURLING

If you’re tight on time but don’t want to go without your beachy waves, size down on the barrel of your curling tong. Use the ghd curve® classic curl tong, take bigger sections and wrap them around the tong without using the clamp.This cuts down on styling time as you don’t have to take tiny sections and be uniformed with the pattern.

4. KEEP IT SLEEK

Straightening your hair when you’re in a rush can be tricky – you might find unruly curls take several passes to get them completely straight. The plates of ghd platinum+ are advanced and have intelligent ultra-zone technology to maintain a safer-for-hair heat consistently and evenly from root to tip – this means that the temperature is maintained along the plate and only one pass over the hair is needed to style, reducing the amount of heat your hair is exposed to.

5. PUMP UP THE VOLUME

No time to wash your hair and dry shampoo alone isn’t doing the trick? Apply a generous amount of ghd root lift spray to the root, turn your head upside down and brush out using the ghd paddle brush. This gives an instant root lift for volume that lasts.


6. FRAME YOUR FACE

If time is of the essence, focus your styling attention on the sections around your face and at the top of your head. Concentrate on creating a polished look by smoothing out the top layer of your hair using ghd platinum+ as it will cover any unruly strands underneath.
