Romantic soft curls
Complete your boho bridal style with a dreamy floral crown. Take on the beauty of nature with this pretty accessory - match florals to your colour scheme or add delicate greens for an effortlessly glam look. Paired with tumbling curls, you’re guaranteed to be a show-stopper.
Take a one to two inch section of dry hair and prep with ghd curl hold spray.
Hold the ghd curve® soft curl iron horizontally and flat wrap the section of hair around the barrel. Roll it towards your roots and hold in place for five to eight seconds.
Repeat steps one and two throughout your hair, alternating curls in different directions for a textured look.
Lightly brush through your curls with a ghd oval dressing brush for a beautiful soft finish.
Place your floral crown on your head, letting loose strands frame your face.
HAIR VINE: CHUNKY BRAID
Capture relaxed romance with a delicate hair vine. Twist your accessory into a chunky French braid, flowing down your back in an ethereal style. The pops of sparkle will add a unique dimension to your braid.
Once all the desired waves have been styled, gather all your hair at the crown of your head and divide into three sections.
Cross the right section over the middle section, then cross the left section over the middle section.
Continue to braid, repeating step three and adding in hair as you go.
Once you’ve added in all additional hair, finish the lengths with a classic braid. Secure the braid with a hair tie.
Use your fingers to gently loosen the loops of your braid to create a chunky effect.
Weave your hair vine through the length of your braid, starting from the top and working your way to the ends.
Tip: To ensure your accessory stays put, discreetly add in hair pins throughout the braid.
HAIRBAND: CLASSIC CURLS
You can't go wrong with a classic hairband. Beautiful and sophisticated classic curls, the accessory adds a graceful flourish to a simple wedding hairstyle.
Take a three-inch section of dry hair and prep with ghd curl hold spray.
Wind the section of hair around the barrel of the ghd curve® classic curl iron. Hold for five to eight seconds and release.
Repeat steps one and two on the rest of your hair, making sure to curl locks in the same direction for a classic finish.
Once your hair is fully curled, use the ghd detangling comb to soften the style and loosen your curls.
Slide your headband into place, tucked just behind your ears.
JEWELLED HAIR CLIP:
VINTAGE CURLY UPDO
This glamorous style is the epitome of bridal chic. Twirl and pin your locks into a vintage curly updo and accessorize with a jewelled hair clip - the perfect addition to this show-stopping look.
Prep damp hair with two to four pumps of ghd total volume foam.
Blow-dry the product into your hair with the ghd air® hairdryer and the ghd ceramic vented radial brush. Starting from the roots, direct the flow of air downwards and pull the hair upwards with the brush to create root lift.
Once dry, lightly backcomb all your hair with the ghd narrow dressing brush at the root to create more volume.
Take a two-inch section of hair and flat wrap it around the ghd curve® classic curl iron. Hold for five to eight seconds and release.
Wrap the curl around your fingers to create a pin curl and secure in place against your head with a hair pin.
Repeat steps four and five on all remaining hair, staggering the placement of the pins.
Slide your hair clip into place on one side of your hair and finish with a spritz of hairspray.
BRAIDED HALF UPDO
Get a little dramatic with two different types of braids. Blending a loose rope braid and a fishtail, this half updo is made even more beautiful with the addition of fresh flowers dotted throughout.
On either side of your natural parting, create two sections of hair that go from the parting down to your ear.
Take the left section and divide into two. Twist each sub-section to the right, then cross the right sub-section over the left sub-section.
Continue to cross to the right and wrap to the left until you reach the ends of the hair. Secure in place with a hair tie.
Repeat steps three and four on the right section of hair.
Take both of your rope braids and bring together to form a ponytail at the bottom of your crown. Remove the first set of hair ties, before securing together into one.
Divide the ponytail into two sections to begin your fishtail.
Take a small piece of hair from the outside of the left section, cross it over the top and add it to the right section. On the right section, take a small piece of hair from the outside, cross it over the top and add it to the left section.
Repeat step eight, continuing to braid to the end of the ponytail. Secure in place with a hair tie.
Undo the top hair tie at the base of the ponytail and add fresh flowers throughout your style.
