How To Get The Perfect GHD Curls

1. Split your hair into sections from the underneath if you have lots or thick hair. If you have short or thin hair you can skip this step. Then split these big sections into 2-3cm chunks to curl. Squeeze the ghd straightener plates together over the section of hair, as close to the scalp as possible, as if you were going to straighten the piece of hair.

2. Pull the hair away from your scalp with the straightener – rather than straight downwards. As you’re pulling away, start to roll the straightener downwards, keeping the hair wrapped around the plates as you go.

3. Keep the straightener rolling downward until the piece of hair is completely wrapped the whole way around the straightener. Once hair is all the way around, slide the straightener down the full length of the hair.

4. Once you have run the straightener all the way down to the end and the curl is complete, twirl the curl around your fingers and place how you would like.

5. Stretch or brush out the curls if you want loose waves, or coil around fingers for a tighter, more defined curl. Secure the curl with light hairspray.

6. Repeat on all sections of hair until head is completely curled.
