How-To: Texture Takeover

It’s official: texture is back. Curls, waves, bends, twists, kicks—tousled and messy or slightly more refined. This ultra-volumized, dual-textured wave from ghd adds drama and movement to a structured cut. 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.


Think you have what it takes to be a ghd Master Stylist?
The winner will be announced at BTC’s COLOR, Cut & Style Show and will receive $2,500 in cash, a ghd styling set worth $1,000 and the honor of being a ghd Master Artist for one year!
