Here’s how to get perfectly polished wavy hair
1. Apply ghd total volume foam and dry hair from roots to end
2. Blow dry hair with ghd ceramic vented radial brush then pin into curl
3. Tame hair around hairline with ghd air® hairdryer
4. Repeat step 2 on sides of head, taking 45 degree angled sections away from face
5. Take horizontal sections and work upwards to front until all hair is pinned into curls
6. Allow curls to cool, release pins and tease curls at root with ghd oval dressing brush
step one: Apply volume foam and dry hair from roots to end
step two: Blow dry hair with ceramic brush then pin into curl
Blow dry the top of the hair using a ghd ceramic vented radial brush, lifting and directing airflow at root. Continue down slowly rolling hair upwards. Set with cold shot of air and pin into a barrel curl.
step three: Tame hair around hairline with dryer
Working through the side sections, place the ghd air® heat setting onto medium heat and tame any unruly hairs around the hairline, directing the hair away from the face.
step four: Repeat step 2 on sides of head, taking 45 degree angled sections away from face
Blow dry the sections either side of the head following the same process as step two but take the sections on a diagonal 45 degree angle away from face.
step five: Take horizontal sections and work upwards to front until all hair is pinned into curls
Working at the back starting at the nape, take horizontal sections working upwards to the front until the whole head is set and pinned into barrel curls.
step six: Allow curls to cool, release pins and tease curls at root with oval dressing brush
Once the hair is cool, release barrel curls and tease at the roots slightly with a ghd oval dressing brush. Smooth out to the ends to create the desired look and lock the look in place with hairspray.
