Get The Steps

  1. Working in small sections, feed the hair into a ghd® Styler and create an S-shape. Tap the styler repeatedly as you work your way through the ends.
  2. Continue this same pattern around the rest of the head.
  3. Then, apply a texturizing spray at the roots and use a dryer to create volume around the face.
