How to Use Heat Protection

Hollywood glossy waves by Zoe Irwin

Create glossy Hollywood waves and celebrate a good hair day with Zoe Irwin's how-to guide from the ghd 20th Anniversary collection.

ghd global brand ambassador Zoe Irwin created perfectly scultped, uniform curls using the ghd gold® flat iron before brushing out into beautiful waves. To help curl longevity, once you've curled each section with the ghd gold® flat iron , wrap the curl around your fingers and pin in place with a sectioning clip. Once they've cooled, brush them out layer at a time for a couture finish.

Join us in marking the 20th anniversary of ghd with Zoe Irwin's Hollywood waves and feel empowered with stunning wavy style.
