From spiralled to sleek with GHD

It’s true that “we all want what we don’t have” when it comes to our hair.

Introducing the ghd Platinum styler – a versatile styler for all your hair needs.

“If it’s super slick, straight hair you’re after then the ghd platinum is for you. But if you want a styler which can do EVERYTHING then the platinum is even more for you! The pics you see of me in this post with my trademark wavy, beachy hair were achieved using the ghd platinum styler.

I simply took large sections (the larger the section the better for softer waves, the smaller the section the better for tighter curls) and twisted the platinum styler away from my face while using my spare hand to guide the hair evenly through the plates. To ensure the curl isn’t too tight I would flick the wrist quite quickly. If it’s a tighter curl you’re after then go slowly.

Lastly, to achieve the bend at the level of your cheekbone (the most flattering) start your first twist around this area of the section and pull it quite firmly, then relax the grip for the lower part of the section. Don’t pull too tightly on the ends of the hair otherwise your ends will be too curly (unless of course that is the look you’re going for!). Finish by using your finger tips and shaking your hair through and spritzing with ghd Final Fix Hairspray.”
