The Azores Collection:
Get the look - beach waves

Create a playful twist on summer's salty and sun-kissed texture trend using the ghd V gold classic styler.

Bring that surfs-up style to your hair whatever the season by twisting your locks into beach waves. Creating a wavy hairstyle that’s full of texture will throw you back to times soaking up the rays and diving in the salty sea, when your hair felt and looked sultry and sun-kissed.

To craft those far-out ripples, you need some solid texture – ghd curl hold spray is the perfect base to start off your styling. Then to turn your locks into wavy hair, work the ghd V gold classic styler.

Achieve an ocean-inspired look from the comfort of your own home with a set of beach waves – the wavy hairstyle that epitomises that summer ethos. 

Here’s how to create beach waves

1. Prep hair with ghd curl hold spray

2. Place ghd V gold classic styler in hair, turn and glide

3. Turn styler opposite direction, glide and repeat

4. Break waves up

step one: Prep hair with curl hold spray

To start, prepare the hair with ghd curl hold spray. This creates a gutsy, second day texture that is the perfect foundation for beachy styles.

step two: Place styler in hair, turn and glide

Place a section of hair between plates, turn styler towards you and pull down 10cm (less if your hair is shorter).

step three: Turn styler opposite direction, glide and repeat

Turn styler in the opposite direction and pull down, repeating this technique alternating technique until you reach the ends.

step four: Break waves up

Using your fingers break up the waves, or for softer movement, use a ghd detangling comb.
