Wedding hair guest look-book

Lauren ghd: always a good news story

Lucky for you, the wedding season is no longer confined to the summer months, with the influx of invites dropping through your clients’ letterbox set to shape their full year’s calendar. The stress of finding a new dress for each occasion becomes daunting (and expensive). So this year encourage them to look outside the outfit for ways to refresh their look and update their usual wedding guest go-to.

ghd UK Ambassador, Zoe Irwin, has shared her top tips to put a modern twist on your client’s style, with a simple hair guide to transform your wedding-guest look…

“This season, accessories are back and weddings are the perfect playground. Once hair has been blow dried
with ghd air hairdryer, brush through and create a simple side parting. Using the ghd curve creative curl wand, firstly section off and work through section by section, wrapping the full length of the hair around the tong, all in the same direction for a uniformed curl. Once the hair is cooled, brush back the smaller section of parted hair so it sits behind your client’s ear and clip in a selection of clips for instant glam and added sparkle.”

“Refresh the classic up do, with an un-done chignon. Start by blasting hair dry with ghd air hairdryer and running the ghd platinum + styler through the lengths of hair to smooth. Leave two small front sections of hair loose and pull the remaining hair back into a low pony and secure with a hair tie. Split hair in two and twist back around on itself and into the centre, securing with curby grips. Finally take the two front sections and loosely tong with ghd curve creative curl wand and with your fingertips, lightly tease hair for an edgy-cool finish and spritz with the ghd final fix hairspray for added shine and hold.”

“The key to gorgeous wedding guest hair is preparation, ensuring that clients start looking after their locks in the months before the big day. Ensure they start to apply regular treatments and masks, so that their hair is healthy and the style will hold throughout the day and evening. Recommend the ghd advanced split end therapy to them in the weeks leading up to the big day, to help nourish and fortify damaged ends, leaving hair feeling sleek, smooth and shiny.”
