Bad hair day - who's got time for that?

Me and my ghd have been like bananas and almond milk, I can't go by a day without it! Since I've made a hair change to medium length bob, I've been finding it so much easier to manage. I swear I've saved at least three minutes every day on my straightening routine. And once in a while when I feel like channeling my vintage soul, I use my ghd for classic curls that are super easy to do ( a Taylor Swift inspired ghd curls tutorial here in case you've missed it). Recently some of you sweetheart has asked how I curl my medium length hair, so here I'm with this new hair tutorial just for you. I'm also sharing my top tips for making curls game so on point every single time so read on!

Here's my modern take on the classic 50's curls that's very wearable and oh-so-glam for any occasions. From date nights on rooftop bar to springtime garden picnic, you're guaranteed with good hair days in your shiniest mane.

👯 ghd Curls Step-by-step 👯

1. Switch on your ghd. Start by parting your hair and use sectioning clips to get them away from your face.

2. Beginning with the bottom section on one side of your hair, place your ghd styler around 10cm below your roots ( beauty hack: as we'll be wearing our curls with a hat you can save time and start curling closer towards the end of your hair).

3. Gently rotate the styler inwards towards your neckline and slowly glide your hair through.

4. Repeat the above step with other sections of your hair. Make sure you always rotate your ghd inwards for that classic glam look.

5. Loosen the curls with your fingers and let plenty of air in for some natural volume. Finish with an overlay of strong hold hair spray on your curls. Style with your favourite picnic straw hat and viola!

😎Top ghd Tips 😎

1. If you're after some volume in your hair, start with towel-dried hair and apply volume mousse towards the end. Also apply a light overlay of light hold hair spray before blow drying and curling. I skipped this step as I'm wearing a hat so I can hide any flatter section of my hair, but if you have the extra five minutes definitely go for it.

2. Pin your curls while they're still warm after curling to give them extra longevity.

3. When you glide your hair through the styler, make sure you do it evenly with a steady pace. One of the many reasons why ghd is the best for curling is that its optimum temperature is kept very consistently throughout your use so curls are even. Whatever styler you use make sure it does have that intelligent temperature control.
