Here’s how to create the Modern Straight hairstyle
1. Prep hair with a root lift spray
2. Lift up hair and blow dry hair away from root
3. Blow dry mid lengths and ends from root to tip
4. Create parting and continue to dry
5. Section hair at front, place styler in mid length and glide
6. Bevel hair at ends
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 across head
8. Spray paddle brush with a shine spray
9. Lightly brush hair
step one: Prep hair with a root lift spray
To help create lift and volume, prep the dry hair with a root lift spray.
step three: Blow dry mid-lengths and ends from root to tip
Blow dry the mid-lengths and ends of the hair, directing the air flow from root to tip.
step four: Create parting and continue to dry
Use the arch of your eyebrow to find a parting, then continue drying the top section with same technique as in step three.
step five: Section hair at front, place styler in mid length and glide
Section the hair at the front (1-inch deep section), then place the ghd platinum® styler in at the mid-length and gently close the plates as you glide through hair.
TIP: Closing the styler whilst gliding prevents a dent in the hair.
step six: Bevel hair at ends
As you reach the end of the hair with the ghd platinum® styler, create a ‘blow-dry finish’ with a soft bevel, by turning the styler under for a rounder end
step seven: Repeat steps 5 and 6 across head
Repeat this process throughout the sections until all the hair is complete, always starting from the mid-length to retain volume at the root with a bevelled end.
step eight: Spray paddle brush with final shine spray
Apply a shine spray onto a ghd paddle brush.
step nine: Lightly brush hair
Lightly pass through the hair for a luxe finish.
