Take 2-inch section of hair - Creative Embellished Crimp

step one: Take 2-inch section of hair

To start prepare the hair with ghd heat protect spray, to give you that extra protection from heat damage. Then using the ghd tail comb, create a centre parting in your hair and take a 2-inch section of hair.

TIP: To give your hair that extra shine, prepare by smoothing the hair out with the ghd platinum® styler.

step four: Repeat at jaw level

Once released, move the ghd contour® down the section of hair to around a jaw-length level (or wherever you desire on your length) and repeat step three to create a second crimped embellishment.

TIP: Don’t brush over the crimped sections – if you need to work through your locks, try going around the crimped hair.
