Here’s how to create sleek and straight hairstyle


1. Blow dry hair, then split hair in front of nape

2. Create diagonal subsection and prep with heat protect spray

3. Take subsection and pull straight with natural bristle brush

4. Glide from root to ends following brush

5. Bevel the roots at the top

6. Brush through hair with oval dressing brush

step one: Blow dry hair, then split hair in front of nape

Blow dry hair completely dry. Split hair into two sections front to nape, then sharpen your parting with a ghd tail comb.

step two: Create diagonal subsection and prep with heat protect spray

Take diagonal subsections starting at the nape. Apply ghd heat protect spray evenly and distribute from roots to end.

step three: Take subsection and pull straight with natural bristle brush

Hold subsection at 90 degrees from the head, place a ghd natural bristle brush at the roots and pull straight with your thumb on the hair to add tension.

step four: Glide from root to ends following brush

Place your ghd styler at root behind the brush. Maintaining the 90 degree angle, gently close the styler and smooth from roots to ends following the brush.

step five: Bevel the roots at the top

To add extra shape and lift from the crown, bevel the roots at the top using the bottom plate – rotating back and forth to achieve the lift.

step six: Brush through hair with oval dressing brush

To finish, use the ghd oval dressing brush – brushing from the root to end, setting the style and increasing shine.
