How-To: Elegant Waves


How-To: Elegant Waves

It’s official: texture is back. Curls, waves, bends, twists, kicks—tousled and messy or slightly more refined. This head-hugging, expensive curl with killer shine is great for your chic girl looking for something just a little more polished but not too perfect.


Want to know how it’s done? The key is the ghd platinum styler—the ultimate, versatile styling tool that allows you to create a variety of looks that last—in just one stroke. Plus, the platinum will keep your clients’ hair 20 percent shinier, prevent breakage by 50 percent and do wonders for your clients’ color integrity. Here’s how it’s done!

Products Used


  • 1

    Take a diagonal section of hair from the top of the ear, down towards the nape (around an 1-inch deep). Follow the same angle of the section and place the ghd platinum styler at the root.

  • 2

    Close the plates and rotate the styler 190 degrees toward the head. Keep the styler angled at 45 degrees in a downward direction and glide through to the ends.

  • 3

    Follow the same sectioning pattern and technique, working up towards the parting.

  • 4

    Repeat until hair has been curled on both sides.

  • 5

    Dress out using a ghd oval dressing brush. Tease hair at the roots to set the style and add movement to the waves.
