Achieve sleek, oh-so-simple glamour with this glam half-up style, perfect for the party season.

Keep your hair protected and looking healthy by first misting with the ghd bodyguard - heat protect spray. Section hair working upwards from the bottom of the head and glide the ghd paddle brush from root to tip followed by the ghd gold® hair straightener. Turn the styler inwards at the ends of the hair to create a sleek bevel. Separate the front section of the hair into a triangle to be swept into a side part later. Pull the hair upwards from the ear and section into a high pony. Release the triangular section and secure into place with some festive hair slides for a hint of sparkle. Wrap a strand of hair from the base of the ponytail around the elastic and finish with the ghd perfect ending - final fix hairspray.

Sophisticated and chic, with a sweeping side part for an on-trend finish.
