HEAT STYLE

STEP ONE: 

Prep your hair with curl holding spray. This will help to add texture and set the stage for your beachy curls. 

STEP TWO: 

Using your ghd styler, place a section of hair between plates. Turn the styler towards you and pull down 10cm (less if your hair is shorter). 

STEP THREE: 

Turn your ghd styler in the opposite direction and pull down. Repeat this technique, alternating until you reach the ends. 

STEP FOUR: 

Using your fingers break the waves up. For a softer movement, use a detangling wide-toothed comb.
