2. Use styler to create soft waves

3. Alternate direction of styler

4. Loosen curls with comb

5. Twist to the side and pin in place

step one: Prep hair with curl hold spray

Take a section of hair and lightly mist with ghd curl hold spray. Work product into hair with hands.

step two: Use styler to create soft waves

Place section between the plates of your ghd platinum® styler, rotate 180° and pull through to the ends to create a soft wave.

step three: Alternate direction of styler

Repeat throughout until all the hair has been curled, alternating the direction in which you rotate the styler (either away from the face, or towards the face) so that the curls look modern and less uniform.

step four: Loosen curls with comb

Soften the curl using the ghd detangling comb.

step five: Twist to the side and pin in place

To finish your look, twist your hair to one the side and secure in place with a pin.
