Our first look has a vintage feel to it. This look has been dominating the fashion world all year. Kylie wears it perfectly. It’s got a vintage feel but is still modern and flattering.

Here is how to pull it off with ease:

  1. Apply GHD Style Curl Hold Spray over clean dry hair.
  2. In section’s of approx 1 inch square curl hair with GHD’s, applying Curl hold to each section giving the curl hold and heat protection.
  3. When all curled leave hair for 5-10 minutes to cool down, fixing in the curl so it will hold the curl longer.
  4. Thoroughly brush the hair thorough with a natural bristle brush like Denman Grooming Brush, the natural boar bristle will separate the hair and soften the curl to a vintage wave.
  5. When brushing waves twist ends with a flick of your fingers to turn in and fall beautifully.
  6. A small mist of hairspray at this point will seal in your style.
  7. To continue with the vintage feel either tuck on side behind the ear or pin back with a glittery slide and your ready to rock n roll and party night !

Give this popular and easy look a try, here’s how:

  1. On clean dry hair mist GHD Heat protect and straighten, this will make it so much easier to get it up with a sleek finish.
  2. Pull hair into a high ponytail placing the ponytail on the top of your head in front of the crown area.
  3. To achieve perfectly sleek side areas again I would recommend a natural boar  bristle brush like the Denman Grooming Brush as mentioned before.
  4. Once ponytail is in place, lightly backcomb it with the brush to give a little bulk  to hair, then brush lightly smoothing the hair but not removing all the backcombing.
  5. Wrap the hair around the ponytail till only a little left with these ends tuck them under wrapped hair and secure with a kirby clip or two.
  6. Mist with hairspray, then follow with GHD Style Final Shine Spray for instant all over shine.
