CRIMPING’S BACK! THE HAIR TREND YOU SIMPLY MUST TRY THIS WINTER!
THIS SEASON’S HAIR IS ALL ABOUT TEXTURE AND CRIMPING, WITH 80S-INSPIRED LOOKS DOMINATING THE CATWALKS AND MAKING APPEARANCES ON THE PAGES MAGAZINES AND ON JUST ABOUT EVERY BLOG, TOO.
This season’s styles are a whole lot softer and more subtle than they used to be, making this a more wearable trend that just about everyone can pull off. As Adam Reed of ghd explains, “crimping is one of those trends that everyone is scared of, but it never goes away.” Keep things fresh and modern by avoiding crimping your hair all over and go for a dual texture effect by crimping only a few sections of your hair instead. Crimping is a quick and easy way to create volume, while keeping up with the latest hair trends at the same time.
When playing around, remember that it’s not necessarily about crimping all of your hair this season. “It’s really more about the placement of crimping and emphasising and creating texture in the hair,” says Adam.
GET THE LOOK: GHD Crimp Dip
We simply can’t get enough of this modern, free-spirited look. Loose, brushed out waves partnered with soft, textured crimped-ends means that this style is so much more than your ordinary, waved look. Take things up a notch this season with the step-by-step guide to creating this look, below:
Prep your hair with a root lift product or volumising spray. Focus on your roots and mid lengths.
Give your hair a quick blast with your hairdryer and a brush to ‘set’ the product.
Spray your hair with curl hold product.
Section your hair from ear to ear.
Place your Ghd styler at the roots of your hair, then rotate half a turn and glide your styler downwards, making sure to leave your ends straight.
Repeat on all hair, alternating direction.
For texture, place the limited edition ghd contour hair crimper at top of your straight ends and hold for a few seconds.
Repeat on all remaining straight ends.
Repeat steps 5-8 on all your hair.
Comb through your curls to soften them slightly.
Gently brush crimped sections with dressing brush.
Embellish with gold headbands.
