The ghd global education collection is designed to inspire – to leave every hairstylist equipped to bring to life their beautiful ambition and help clients realise their own. 
Dubbed Romantic Tomboy, the story covers a multitude of styles, ranging from tough tomboy textures to sheer, unadulterated romance – just like this classic Hollywood-inspired look.
Few things set hearts fluttering like flame-red hair styled in softly undulating waves, complete with a side-part for vintage charm and a flirty, peek-a-boo finish. Learning to create this look will leave clients crying out for more – and make you the most popular special occasion stylist in the area.

The latest ghd global education collection encourages stylists to think big – and beautiful. The story, Romantic Tomboy, is all about achieving your beauty ambition, be that a sleek and understated blow-dry or a structured style that takes your creativity and cranks it up a notch.
This braided and bouffant style (pictured left) is the perfect example of taking a trend and pushing it to the next level, combining techniques and textures for a statement-making look that leaves clients asking, how did they do that?
While the avant-garde style might not be for every client, there are numerous elements within the look that everyone can wear – a soft wave, a structured braid and face-flattering volume at the crown. As an education look, it inspires – as a deconstructed style, it’s techniques to take away and use every day.

The latest ghd global education collection showcases the diversity of the tools and techniques within the brand, as well as the diversity of femininity itself. Romantic Tomboy celebrates beautiful hair in all its forms – from strong, sleek and straight to floaty and flyaway.
This editorial-inspired look (left) demonstrates the versatility of the brand’s tools – the new ghd contour crimping iron being used to create the perfect base for braids and an unexpected texture through the lengths of the ponytail. With braids a perennial Spring/Summer favourite, it’s time to practise your plaiting and prepare for an influx of these sporty luxe looks. Whether it’s a full head of braids like these or a fun additional plait through a simple blow-dry, it’s a feature that clients love and one that allows you to flex your technical muscles and provide a real point of difference. We like it a lot. Do you?

Who better to bring to life ghd’s global education collection than a team of trend scouts, educators and emerging talent? The new shoot, Romantic Tomboy, was produced by a truly experienced team, each with their own secret ingredient for the mix: trend queen and session stylist Zoe Irwin, ghd global head of education Jo Robertson, global education manager Dafydd Thomas and rising stars Patrick Wilson and Leighanne Regan.
The series of images has been created to allow stylists across the globe to be inspired by the diversity of ghd and the limitless potential of the tools in their kit – whether that’s on clients in the salon or on set.
This romantic look (left) combines featherlight texture and playful movement with a classically romantic shape, complete with bunches of baby’s breath for a nod to the Rodarte runway and the current couture craze for intertwining fresh blooms throughout the hair. Watch out for a flourish of florals at weddings and events near you, all summer long.

The second image (left) in ghd’s global education collection, Romantic Tomboy, breathes fresh life into bridal and occasion hair with an abundance of accessories and a playful texture. 
Created to inspire stylists across the globe to make their clients feel utterly beautiful, the shoot features a combination of up and down looks, as well as a multitude of textures, to showcase the diversity of ghd’s tools. 
This flirty, feminine ponytail combines a loose wave with a mid-level ponytail and a soft quiff, for a retro-inspired silhouette that’s equal parts chic and cool. Pile on the pearls for an unexpected update, inspired by the runways of Chanel. It’s a look for the fashion-forward bride with a romantic side, but lose a gem or two and replace with a bow, tiara or slide and you’ve got a look that’s less directional but still dazzling.

Romantic Tomboy is the new global education collection from ghd Professional, created to empower stylists and women across the world to look and feel beautiful so they can fulfil their every ambition.
ghd global head of education, Jo Robertson, says: “With this shoot, as with all that we do, we champion beauty. We are daring, we are ambitious and we break boundaries. We worked together as a collaborative team to deliver on the promises we make to consumers and stylists – every day.”
This shot (left) features the strong, structured and confident style that embodies the romantic tomboy. It’s a nod back to the styles that made ghd famous back when they launched, some 16 years ago – albeit with a modern twist. It’s straight, but it retains a modernity through the softness of movement and super-luxe, thick, quality hair.
Perfect for clients enamoured by the flawlessly sleek beauty of 90s supermodel hair, 70s Cher and Kim Kardashian’s reimagining of the trend; hair that’s rich, powerful and a little retro with added embellishment using ghd contour in sections.
