Plan Your Perfect Hairstyles With ghd’s New Hair Hub!

I love trying out new styles on my hair, especially when their is a curl involved. If I can recreate the perfect ‘just out of bed’ hairstyle with a minimal amount of fuss, then I am one happy camper! For today’s post I have collaborated with ghd to share their new hair hub page with you. If like me, you find it easier to re-create new hairstyles when you have some inspiration then this page is for you…

From occassion styles to everyday hair the ghd hair inspiration page is packed full of inspiration for all hair types and lengths. To demonstrate how easy it is to re-create a look from their hair hub I was kindly gifted the ghd Platinum Styler to showcase one of my favourite looks. Of course being a lover of messy curls I picked out this Cool Girl Wave hairstyle tutorial from the ghd hair inspiration page here.

CREATING ghd COOL GIRL WAVES

Below are the 9 easy steps it took to create my messy waved hairstyle using the ghd Platinum Styler. If using curling wands is more of your thing, there are also a number of tutorials on the hair inspiration page that will use a curler instead of a straightener.

 

1. Mist hair with curl hold spray

2. Section hair from ear to ear

3. Place styler at root, turn inwards, glide & release after 2-3 secs

4. Shake hair to loosen curls

5. Place styler below first twist and repeat steps 3 and 4

6. Repeat, leaving the front line

7. Curl front section away from face

8. Spritz oval brush with final shine spray

9. Lightly brush hair

 

For a more in depth tutorial you can also watch the ghd cool girl waves tutorial video embedded below. For me, once I got the hang of how to twist my straightener around my hair properly, I quickly glided through the rest of my hair in no more than 10 minutes. I am sure with practice it will get better and easier too!
