Gwyneth Paltrow made her way to the Grammy’s last night to introduce her friend Beyonce’s performance and her hair looked sleek and full of volume courtesy of celebrity hairstylist and ghd Brand Ambassador, David Babaii. Babaii went for a classic inspiration…Brigitte Bardot of course. “A modern day Brigitte Bardot. We aimed to keep Gwyneth’s look chic, with a hint of naughtiness.”
So how’d he get Gwyneth’s perfectly smooth yet, voluminous blow out? “Spray ghd Style™ Heat Protect Spray onto damp hair and comb through. Blow dry hair using the ghd air™ hairdryer and a round brush to smooth out strands. Create a side part and divide hair into 3 sections: two in the front and one in the back. Starting with the section in the back, take 1” pieces and wrap hair around the ghd curve™ classic wave wand. The oval shaped barrel creates perfect, large and loose waves. Hold each piece around the barrel for 10 seconds, then release the curl and stretch it out for 2-3 seconds until it cools. Continue all the way to the top alternating the size and direction of each curl. With ghd’s patented tri-zone™ technology, I was able to quickly create this style without much need for product, for long-lasting curls that will stay shiny and smooth all night. To finish, run fingers through the hair to loosen the waves and lightly mist hair with a light hold hairspray.
