step one: Prep hair with product
Spritz your locks with product for heat-damage protection and glossy results.
step two: Put in a side parting
From your forehead to the nape of your neck, create a deep side parting using the ghd tail comb.
step four: Section the bottom of the hair
Section off the bottom half of your hair by running your fingers from your ears to the back of your head. Secure the top section of hair out of the way using a clip.
step five: Take a small piece of hair and place styler at the root
Separate a piece of hair from the bottom section and place the ghd platinum+ styler at the root.
step six: Close the plates and glide to the ends of your hair
Close the heated plates of the styler around the section of hair, and glide it slowly to the ends for a straight and polished look.
step seven: Continue around the head in sections
Repeat step 6 on the rest of your hair. Work in sections, styling the bottom section of hair first. Then release the top section of hair and repeat.
step eight: At the parting, ensure the styler follows the direction of the hair
On the top section, use the styler to smooth your hair in the direction you want it to sit around your head.
step ten: Smooth hair into a low pony and secure with an elastic
Draw all of your hair back into a low ponytail hairstyle at the nape of your neck. Use the ghd oval dressing brush to make it smooth and then secure with an elastic.
step eleven: Take a small section from under the pony
Lift a small section of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and hold out to the side.
step twelve: Spray with product and wrap around the elastic
Spray the section of hair with ghd final fix hairspray to give it firm yet flexible hold. Then, wrap it around the elastic band and secure with a hair grip.
Check your ponytail hairstyle with a mirror, ensuring your locks are beautifully straight and tangle free. Then walk out of the door and take on the day with a confident hairstyle to match.
