GHD Curve styling range are my ultimate new addiction. They have completely dominated the world of curls. Create professional looking curls and waves that no-one will be able to beat. Introducing 4 different types of styling tools:
GHD CURVE CREATIVE CURL WAND
GHD CURVE CLASSIC WAVE WAND
GHD CURVE SOFT CURL TONG
GHD CURVE CLASSIC CURL TONG
GHD are offering a killer range of stylers to suit every hair length and type. From soft sexy waves to beachy textured hair. Big bouncy glamourous curls or a natural flick, anything is possible. Featuring tri-zone technology which allows an even heat distribution, this means the styler is able to lock in your curls. Giving you a healthy, glossy and long lasting look. The design of these irons are actually beautiful. With a matte black texture and a soft gliding barrel, they feel ultra smooth and extremely firm. The on/off switch is fitted underneath the clamp, so no more accidentally turning off the stylers while mid-way through a curl. Hold the button down for 2 minutes, it will light up and make a small beep. Now we can begin the style process.
GHD CREATIVE CURL WAND
As we are all aware natural hair is one of the biggest trends right now. This is where the GHD creative curl wand is here to help you create this amazing look. Curling your hair in different directions will give you a more messy natural look. Directing curls off your face in the same direction, and then brushing them through to create a softer relaxed wave. It is perfect for short or long hair, and is probably one of the quickest stylers to use. It also has a tapered barrel so curls will go bigger to smaller towards the ends of the hair. Personally, I love wands which are the same size all the way through but this definitely gives you more of an uneven natural beachy wave. The one thing that most people struggle with wands is burning their fingers. This has a protective cool tip which gives you a safe place to hold the curl while styling.
So, if this is the style you are looking for, this wand would be your perfect match.
GHD CLASSIC WAVE WAND
This styler is probably the one I was the most intrigued by. With an unusual oval shape wand it definitley stands out. If you are looking to create edgy deep waves or sexy vintage glam this is certainly for you. I would personally recommend it for longer hair types, so you can create that constant flow all the way through your manes. Going for a deep side part, curling your hair towards your face will give you the ultimate 1920's glam. Styling the curls away from the face will give you a modern twist to this look. Using a soft grooming brush to give you that perfect definition and polished feel. Looking for more of a relaxed wave, just glide your fingers through the hair, this will give you a looser finish. This wand will take you a couple of times to get
used to. You will need a little more patience as you want to get the curls perfectly flowing in the same direction. But it is worth it and will give you an ultra glam and super sexy look, well achieved in your own home.
GHD SOFT CURL TONG
Everyone loves that big bouncy blow-dry look, which can be very difficult to re-create at home. This is where the soft curl tong falls into place. With a 32mm large barrel and a spring activated lever, volumized beautiful curls are here to stay. Tongs are my favourite and most classic stylers, they are always in my styling bag. They are a little more confusing to use, but once you get the grip of it there is no going back.
Here are my tips for tongs:
- small sections 1-2 inches long depending on hair density
- place tong though the hair with the clamp on top
- take tong straight up to the root
- turn the tong a full turn while slowly pulling downwards
- whilst doing this re-wrap the hair up towards the roots
- until hair is completely in the tong
- leave for 5 seconds
- slowly and gently realease clamp
- letting curl fall out naturally
I normally like to set my curls and pin curl them up so they truly last me all evening. If you are looking for more of a natural look you could do this just through the mid lengths and ends.
GHD CLASSIC CURL TONG
These classic tongs aren't just here to create beautiful curls. They can also be used to create structured waves. With a 26mm medium barrel and a spring activated lever, consistent classic curls are easy to achieve, whether your hair is short or long.
With a little bit of practise and some patience, I am sure you will fall in love with these as much as I have. I feel like a lot of people get confused with these stylers, as they don't only have to be used as a tong but also as a wand. If you are looking for tight glamours curls follow my previous steps from the GHD SOFT CURL TONG. If you are looking for something different follow these steps .
- Take sections 2-3 inches long depending on hair density
- Open tong and wrap hair around styler
- Leaving the ends free to create a more modern twist
- Don't clamp down leave it open
- Leave for 5 seconds
- Let curl drop down and slightly pull ends
- Giving you a soft natural wave
- Follow this pattern through the hair directing curls off the face for a glam look
- Doing curls in different directions will give you a more textured beachy look
I certainly think these long, loose and natural waves are here to stay this season. Using a texture sp ray or a sea salt spray, will give you a matte textured look. A shine spray of light serum will give you a softer sleeker feel.
