How To: Create Gorgeous Summer Hairstyles With ghd

Jan 19. 2023 by Shaver Shop Team

Creating your go-to summer hairstyles for 2023 is easy with ghd hair straighteners, hair tools and brushes. From beach waves to natural curls, summer calls for effortless, relaxed and beautiful hairstyles. Think boho-chic, undone waves, intricate braids, and voluminous top knots. Here is some hair inspiration to help you beat the heat and embrace the season of sunshine while looking cool and effortless. This is the season to experiment with gorgeous laidback looks:  

IF YOU HAVE LONG HAIR…

Lovely, lengthy and luscious locks make it easy to create a range of dreamy summer hairstyles for long hair. It’s no secret that beachy waves are the ideal summer hairstyle to take you from warm days to balmy nights. Simply sculpt smooth waves by twisting the ghd platinum+ hair straightener away from your face as you glide down each section of the hair.

Featuring ultra-zone technology and advanced sensors, the ghd platinum+ hair straightener can predict your hair’s needs and read your styling speed for a personalised experience. It cleverly adjusts the power to maintain the perfect styling temperature at 185°C, for visibly healthier results. The gloss plates and rounder body allows the hair to pass smoothly through to create beautiful curls and waves.  

Want more of a boho look with lots of texture?
Simply, alternate the direction of each curl as you glide the straightener through your hair. To keep your curls locked in all day, spritz the ghd curly ever after – curl hold spray on your hair.

If you have naturally wavy hair or curly hair, you might be wanting to define the curls and tame frizz. Try the ghd curve® thin wand hair curler to enhance your natural look. With a 14mm barrel, it’s perfect for creating tight, defined and even curls, especially for long hair.

High-definition tight curls from root to tip are easy to build by wrapping your hair around the barrel for 3 seconds. Brush out the curls with the ghd tail comb and use the ghd perfect ending – final fix hairspray to hold your beautifully tousled locks in place.

IF YOU HAVE MEDIUM-LENGTH HAIR…

For beautiful bouncy curls or mid-length beach waves that will never go out of style, use the ghd original hair straightener or the ghd gold® professional hair straightener to create body and movement. Working in sections, place the styler diagonally into the hair (with the hinge towards the scalp) and alternate to turn towards and away from the face as you move down the hair to the ends. For more relaxed waves, gently comb out the curls with the ghd tail comb. Finally, set your style in place with the ghd perfect ending – final fix hairspray.

Second day styling?
Try the ghd glide™ hot brush – the perfect hair straightener brush. The dual-action ceramic heater technology and ioniser eliminate frizz for a salon-worthy finish. Featuring a combination of high-density short and long bristles, you can style larger sections of hair, saving precious time. Creating medium-length hairstyles has never been easier!

IF YOU HAVE SHORTER HAIR…

Beach waves, light curls and ripples – the options are endless!
If your hair is short or a bob-length, then you might find that the ghd mini slim plate hair straightener is the best choice for your hair. Featuring 1/2 inch plates, this mini hair straightener has a narrow barrel that is ideal for styling short curly hairstyles, textured waves, fringes or a simple straight look with ease. Give your hair some extra body and texture with the ghd pick me up – root lift spray. It contains the ghd two-fold heat protection system and provides a long-lasting lift.

STYLE TIP - Post-swimming hair hack
It’s common to get tangled hair post-swimming, particularly if you have mid-length or long hair. Pack ghd’s detangling comb in your bag for stress-free styling – the wide-toothed design allows for delicate detangling on damp hair, which is fragile and more prone to damage.

STYLE TIP - From the beach to glam
No power point? No worries! Style your hair on the go after a dip in the ocean with the ghd unplugged™ cordless hair straightener. With the guaranteed performance of a regular ghd tool, the unplugged™ cordless hair straightener offers up to 20 minutes of continuous styling. Making it ideal for touch-ups and quick styling, just make sure your hair has dried off completely first.
