Blow-dry Bed Head

When it comes to rocking the bed head look, we have serious hair envy for those who can say ‘I woke up like this’. If you’re not blessed with natural, messy locks, turn to ghd styling tools to master this slept-in style.

Make things easy by focusing your attention on the top and front sections of your hair; creating some pin curls at the crown and waves at the front will disguise the cheats ‘braid crimp’ underneath. The braid crimp is a great technique for when you want to add subtle movement to hair without the full shape of a curl. A simple three strand plait blasted with the ghd air® hair dryer will create the ideal base for a blow-dry look in half the time.

Finish by backcombing your roots with the ghd narrow dressing brush and use your fingers to shake out your locks for perfectly imperfect volume and texture. Follow our simple step-by-steps and make the Blow-Dry Bed Head your go-to look for the ultimate in effortless chic.
