Who doesn't love classic hollywood waves? They're one of our go-to looks for a special night, just oozing glamour. We've partnered up with ghd, the masters of hair styling, to show you the simple step-by-step for flawless waves.

3 Steps to Classic, Sleek Waves

You don't need a ton of products or tools to channel your inner Marilyn Monroe. Just follow these 3 simple steps to get beautiful, glossy Hollywood waves.



Prep the Hair

Prep dry hair with ghd curl hold spray and distribute evenly through to ends. It helps protect the hair and set the curl for a longer-lasting look.

Get your Waves

Place the ghd curve classic wave wand at the root area and flat wrap the hair over the barrel towards the cool tip. Hold vertically for 5-8 seconds, then release the hair and leave to cool. Ensure you always wrap the hair in the same direction for that uniform look.

Finish the Look

Using a ghd oval dressing brush, brush the hair right through from root to the ends. A dressing brush helps loosen the curls and add shine for that true Hollywood gloss.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
