Our guide to styling: Top tips and 3 looks you can create at home!

POV: You’ve just spent the past few hours curling your hair, making sure it looks perfect, only for it to lose shape before you’ve even walked out of the door... Well, if you want to find out how you can make your style last all night long, you’re in the right place! Our Creative Director, Kieron Fowles has shared his top tips on how you can make your style last longer, as well as 3 easy looks you can re-create at home to get that salon-quality finish!  

OUR CREATIVE DIRECTOR’S TOP TIPS

“PREP IS KEY! Prep= longevity. In order to maintain a long-lasting finish, you must think about your preparation routine. Hair tends to style better on the 2nd day so be sure to wash your hair the night before you’re planning to style. Make sure you’re using the right products and using them correctly! Prep your hair with volume mousse and styling sprays / serums and blow dry these into the hair to build the foundation. Products coat around each strand of hair which helps to lock in the memory of the style when heat is applied.  
If you’re curling your hair, you really want to make sure the curls sit and cool down before you dress out, otherwise the curls won’t last as long. Hair will still have the memory embedded in the longer you leave the curls to sit before dressing.” Now... let’s get onto the looks! 

TEXTURED WAVE 

PREP: Prep hair with ghd Body Goals Total Volume Foam to build the foundation and use ghd Bodyguard Heat Protect Spray before applying heat to the hair. 

  • STEP 1: Create a middle part and divide hair into sections using a ghd Tail Comb for precision. Grab a section and place the ghd Creative Curl Wand parallel to the section, and flat wrap the hair around the barrel away from the face, taking alternating sections. Hold for 5-8 seconds before dropping the curl.  
  • STEP 2: Continue this technique across all sections.    
  • STEP 3: Spritz brush with ghd Shiny Ever After and dress out the curls to desired shape. Use a Dry Shampoo / Texture Spray to expand the texture and add volume.  

SLEEK STRAIGHT 

PREP: Prep hair with ghd Straight and Smooth Spray for a smooth, flawless base. Spritz ghd Bodyguard Heat Protect Spray before applying heat to the hair. 

  • STEP 1: Divide the hair into sections using a ghd Tail Comb for precision.   
  • STEP 2: Taking a 2-inch strand, comb hair through and place comb and ghd Max Styler in unison and work from roots to ends for a sleek, straight finish. Repeat this method of running straighteners from roots to ends until entire head is complete. 
  • FINAL STEP: Finish the look by brushing ghd Shiny Ever After and ghd Perfect Ending Final Fix Spray through the hair to seal.

GLAM WAVE 

PREP: Prep hair with ghd Body Goals Total Volume Foam to build the foundation. Lightly mist ghd Curly Ever After throughout the hair to hold memory of waves. Use ghd Bodyguard Heat Protect Spray before applying heat to the hair. 

  • STEP 1: Divide the hair into sections using a ghd Tail Comb for precision.  
  • STEP 2: Taking a 2-inch strand, place the ghd Curve Tong parallel to the section. Wrap the hair from tip to root so hair is fully wrapped around the barrel, hold for a few seconds and then release. Once released, pin the curl to the root.  
  • STEP 3: Once the whole head is complete and the hair is cool, release the clips and finish by applying a ghd Shiny Ever After Spray onto the ghd Oval Dressing Brush and work waves to create a groomed, glam finish. Brush to your desired result.   
  • FINAL STEP: Seal look with ghd Perfect Ending Final Fix Spray for longevity. 

And there you go! 3 easy styles and our top tips for a flawless, long-lasting finish. Don’t worry if you’re not a pro at styling yourself!
