When it comes to my hair, well, my barnet and I, we have a rather love hate relationship.
It is by far my favourite thing about my overall look, but boy is it a pain in the bum… Fellow fringed friends you will feel me here.
However, that being said the question I get asked most over on my Instagram and within the comments of my blogposts is how I style my doo.
So, with that, the love hate relationship we have, and to celebrate the ghd Curve’s 1 year birthday, here we have a little guide to exaclty how I style my hair and the tools I use to create the messy, I just got out of bed look; because trust me, it takes a lot of effort to look this effortless…
So here we go!
Step 1. Day old hair is bible when it comes to creating that messy bed head look so ideally, don’t wash your hair first… Or, throw in heaps of sea salt spray and jobs a gooden.
Step 2. Section off your hair, or, if you’re super lazy like me, just pull pieces from the back, to the front past your ear and wrap it round the awesome ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand.
To create my hair look, you only need to curl the mid-ends of the hair, so it’s super easy to do without sectioning (HURRAH)
Step 3. Once, you’ve tonged all of the ends of your hair, take a straightening iron, the one I use is the ghd IV Styler in Periwinkle, but any iron will do. You just need these to smooth over from the roots to the mids of your hair before the curl begins.
Step 4. Almost there, just mess up the curls a little bit with your fingers (not a brush, these curls are delicate and brushing them will completely destroy them) before fixing with TONNES of hair spray.
So there we have it, exactly how I style my hair each and every day. I really enjoyed experimenting with an all new hair tong, adapting, and quite frankly, cementing my hair routine.
I’ve used ghd straighteners and the larger ghd Curve Soft Curl Tong before, but the ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand has a much smaller, tapered barrel which provides the perfect messy curl look, that I love oh so much.
