curls and curls

A straightener is one of those beauty products I never took time to learn how to use or even time to purchase.  I think for most, it’s a product must have, but for my stick straight hair, I just never found a reason to get one.

Well all of that changed after trying this ghd straightener.

I’ve known that curling hair was possible with a straightener, but it felt a little too complicated to learn how to use.  I wasn’t sure if I could achieve the loose curl I’ve seen result from a successful straightener curl!

Thankfully ghd has a library of videos and photos providing tutorials and hairstyle ideas!  After looking through the gallery, I found myself so excited to practice and try a few of the hairstyles.

I decided to first attempt a simple curl — I used this tutorial video.  I found that with the help of the video, I was able to create a more natural curl than I typically can with a curling iron.  (I did find that I struggled curling one side more than the other, but after a little practice, it went pretty quickly!)

I was really happy with the end result!


Do you use your straightener to curl your hair as well?  I was really excited to finally learn how to use mine to curl my hair — since I have the straightest hair known to man!

My sister does her hair like this. I love it, since it gives those natural looking waves that don’t seem to fall limp quite so quickly (curls and I never seem to work out). Looks like you did a great job with it!

You do such a great job! I curl my hair with a big barrel iron for now, but I may try this method when I have the time!
