Get The Look – Directional Wave

With the ghd max taking the nation by storm, it’s only right we learn some hot new styling tips! These directional wave screams glamour and elegance – a must have look as our social lives are slowly coming back.

How-to create directional waves

Step 1: Apply ghd curl hold spray in layers

Step 2: Take a 2 inch horizontal section

Step 3: Place ghd max horizontally in the hair pointing away from the face

step 4: turn ghd max 360° down towards the head

Step 5: Tavel off base at 90° when you are 3 inches down the hair

Step 6: Then travel directly away from  the face (sideways) until you  reach the ends of the hair

Step 7: Continue until all hair is curled  this way, always curling in the  same direction

Step 8: Using the ghd paddle brush,  dress all the hair until the  waves begin to form together,  then flip the fringe so the side  parting sits on the opposite  side, adding height at the front
