step two: Spritz hair with root lift spray
Spritz the roots of your hair with a root lift spray for extra lift and texture.
step four: Grip hair with comb for lift
To grip the hair and create lift, place the teeth of the comb at the root facing the back of the head, then flip the teeth down and forward so they grip the hair. You can then pull up to the ends with created tension.
step five: Place styler at hair root
Once the hair is dry, take random large horizontal sections and place the ghd gold professional ½” styler at the root.
step six: Turn styler half a turn and glide
Rotate the styler half a turn backwards, then lift up and glide away from the root.
step seven: Continue through hair
Repeat the technique in step six throughout the hair.
step eight: Spray hairspray on fingers, work through hair to create root lift
Apply hairspray to your fingers and, using your fingers, comb through the ends, lifting at the root and pulling back slightly.
step nine: Spritz hair with hairspray
Finish by applying more hairspray to the hair to hold your quiff in place.
