ghdCurve – Which Tong for What Curl

As a woman, I think it’s fair to say we always want what we can’t have. Born with fair skin – you want to be tan, if you’re tan you want to be more pale. If you’re short you want to be tall, if you’re brunette you want to be blonde. I can’t completely solve the height issue for you, but we can thank the beauty Gods for fake tan and hair dye.

I don’t think the “The Grass is Always Greener” theory could apply more than to Curly Hair vs Straight Hair debate. Girls with straight hair will always want the volume of curly haired gals, while curly haired folk will always want that sleek, straight look. ghd have long since mastered hair straighteners to help us curly haired girls achieve pin-straight, glossy locks – but no matter your hair type, flowing waves will always be a hot commodity.

Fortunately ghd have also provided us with the ghdCurve range – 4 different curlers that each contain break through ceramic technology & patented tri-zone heat for curls that stay in place all night without damaging your hair. All the curlers will create beautiful curls, no matter what, but it can be tricky to determine which tong will create what type of curl. It could be the difference between a casual day-at-the-beach, soft wave and a classic night-on-the-town hollywood curl.

Below is all the info you need to create the perfect curl for any occasion with the ghdCurve range.
