Well, worry no more as celebrity (hair) stylist, and member of ghd Creative Board, Zoe Irwin, has come to our rescue, offering her top 5 tips to get ahead of the hair-game. Firstly remember Katy Perry’s high-octane hair for the ghd creative? Well, to achieve this look follow these simple hints below…

1. Buy ghd’s New Wave Limited Edition Iconic Eras of Style Collection

2. Start by prepping hair with  ghd Style Total Volume  Foam to create texture

3. Blow dry hair lifting at the roots and using a large barreled, round brush. The ghd Natural Bristle Radial Brush (size 4) is great for this

4. Using the ghd Gold Series Styler*, clamp the hair at the roots and rotate the styler 180 degrees, elevating upwards to create maximum lift and glide the styler to the ends to create a curl. Repeat throughout the entire head of hair to ensure   stronger, longer lasting curls

5. To finish the look, use the ghd Oval Dressing Brush to smooth hair and seal with ghd Style Total Fix Hairspray

“This is full-octane 80s glamour… hair that’s even bigger than Katy’s shoulder pads!…and another key trend for the season.  My top tip?  After waving each section of hair with your ghd Gold Classic styler, pin up immediately!  Let the hair cool completely before unpinning and fixing the curl for all-night staying power. Finish with ghd Style Final Shine Spray. Knockout!”. Thank god for Irwin’s intervention…
