How to Use Heat Protection

Modern high top hair by Charlotte Mensah

Style a cool, modern high top look with ghd global brand ambassador Charlotte Mensah's how-to guide and join us in celebrating 20 years of good hair days.

Charlotte styled this lifted look for the ghd 20th Anniversary campaign using the award-winning ghd helios™ hair dryer and comb nozzle attachment and the ghd gold® flat iron. Start by misting your hair with a leave in conditioner, then comb before blow drying using the ghd helios™ and comb nozzle to lift your hair. Once the hair is dry, comb again with the ghd tail comb before passing the ghd gold® over each section of the hair just once. Blow dry again to shape the hair into a high top style for a chic, lift style.

Style yourself a runway look with lift and body for high-glamour vibes.
