When you think hair straighteners, you think ghd, and for good reason. They’ve been setting the standard since 2001, and we’d argue that they’re still some of the very best around. ghd tools offer salon quality at home. If you’re interested in becoming your own hairdresser, read on.
What does ghd stand for?
That’s an easy one, and also quite fun: ghd stands for good hair day, which is exactly what’s on offer with this brand. Why leave the whole thing up to chance?
How do I curl my hair with ghd straighteners?
We won’t lie to you, it takes a bit of practise. Once you’ve done all the usual things like applying a heat protectant, brushing your hair and sectioning it, say a little prayer for luck. Curling your hair with ghd straighteners is totally achievable, we promise.
From there, working with one piece of hair at a time, place the straighteners next to your scalp, then close them and pull away from your head, rotating as you go. Turning the irons away from your face will create a ‘70s style curl, while turning them towards your face will give you a more classic Hollywood look. Alternating directions will give a more relaxed, undone look.
Once you’ve styled your whole head of hair, congratulate yourself and finish with hairspray. Brush out if you’d like.
What are the best ghd straighteners to get?
Well, that depends on what kind of hair you have. For long, thick or coarse hair, the ghd max hair straightener is sensational, with its wider plates.
If you’re a bit fancy, you’ll enjoy the ghd platinum+, which has rounded edges that are ideal for adding curls and waves to the hair.
Oh, and while we’re here: ghd do a great line in heat protectants and styling products, too. Those who seek a hot brush will be well-served with the ghd Rise Volumising Hot Brush and the ghd Glide Professional Hot Brush.
