Classic curls: Get the look

Lauren ghd: always a good news story

classic curlA timeless style, the classic curl is no doubt one of your clients’ most requested looks. Luckily for us ghd has devised a Curve Menu, featuring a number of curly ‘do’s created using the ghd curve electrical range. This week we reveal how to re-create the classic curls of their dreams.

Get the look

Step 1: Prep the hair with ghd curl hold spray and style hair in a deep side parting using the ghd tail comb.

Step 2: Work in sections from the bottom, starting at the back of the head. Place the ghd curve classic curl tong below the hair and wrap around the tong.

Step 3: Twist wrap the hair around the barrel, clamp down and hold for five to eight seconds.

Step 4: Every other curl, alternate the placement so the tong points away from the face. This will add texture to the finished look.

Step 5: Continue the technique throughout the head, always alternating the direction.

Step 6: On the very front sections, place the tong behind the hair so the curls frame your face.

Step 7: Break up the curls using a ghd detangling comb.
