Ride the wave of this hair trend and create these soft water curls in your hair with this technique video and step-by-step guide. 


Here’s how to create water waves


1. Section hair, clipping away top section

2. Place styler at the top of lower section

3. Taking a section, rotate styler up and towards head

4. For the next section, rotate styler down and away from head

5. Repeat throughout whole head

6. Brush through with paddle brush 


step one: Section hair, clipping away top section

Begin by section away the top section of hair with clips, and allow the lower section to hang loose around the neckline.

step two: Place styler at the top of lower section

At the nape of the neck, place the ghd platinum® styler at the roots of your hair.

step three: Taking a section, rotate styler up and towards head

With the first section of hair, rotate the styler one turn up and towards the head, then glide through the hair.

step four: For the next section, rotate styler down and away from head

With the next section of hair, rotate the styler one turn down and away from the head, then glide through the hair.

step five: Repeat throughout whole head

Alternating the direction of the ghd platinum® styler up and towards head, and down and away from head, curl all of the hair – unclip sections from the top as you go along.

step six: Brush through with paddle brush

To loosen your curls, brush the hair out with the ghd paddle brush to create your desired water wave look.
