Recently, I was sent some ghd IV straighteners to try out, and to show you how to create a style other than frizz-free, poker-straight hair. And guess what, it's really easy peasy. You just need a little extra time.
Before I jump right into it, let's just have a look at this pleasing packaging and sleek design. It's something that ghd have always been good at, and makes them a sought after styling tool. One of the most useful things about these hair straighteners (for someone like me, anyway) is that they automatically turn themselves off after 30minutes. So I never need to panic that I've left them on, ever again!
Now then, the whole styling part... first up, you need to start with damp/towel-dried hair (thoughtful pose optional) •
• run volumising mousse through your hair and create a deep parting •
• roughly section your hair and blow dry •
• fluffy! •
• smooth a little hair oil through •
• section hair and curl under with the straighteners, pinning each curl as you go •
• leave the curls to cool fully - again, silly faces optional... •
• gradually unpin the curls, starting at the bottom and working up •
• gently tease the curls with your fingers, use a little product or bobby pins if needed •
• TA DAAAAAH! •
And you're left with lovely big bouncy curls! This is definitely a style I'm going to do again, especially if it's a special occasion. I love that it makes my awkward-length hair look more intentional, and it'll just look better and better as it grows!
Also, if you suddenly feel like you need straight hair again, just section it out and slowly glide the ghds through your hair. I love how sleek it looks! No more frizz for me!
