Ahhh, beachy waves, one of the most googled hair tutorials there is. We love us a little beachy wave every now and then, especially in summer, when we basically live too far from the salty water to get it al-natural (purely speaking for my fellow Melbournians). The beachy wave look goes hand in hand with a Sunday arvo catch up with your girlfriends, a music festival, daytime event or casual work drinks.

The perfect ghd curve® tool to achieve the beachy wave look is the ghd curve® creative curl wand. This wand will work its beachy wave or laid back luxe look magic the same for long and short hair. It’s tapered conical barrel creates natural looking curls as demonstrated in the above tutorial.

This look takes a little longer to achieve than the other tools in the ghd curve® range as it works best with small sections of hair, bit by bit until your entire hair is curled. The outcome is worth the time, as once you are finished, it will last for days!

I like to flip my hair from middle part to side part to change the look up from day to day.

Here are the facts about this product:

The ghd curve® utilises patented tri-zone® technology with six quick-thinking sensors in the barrel that rapidly heats the tool to 185°C which is the optimum styling heat.

Automatic sleep mode after 30mins for safety

The tri-zone® technology ensures no heat loss during the styling which will deliver you long-lasting, healthier looking curls that actually last!


The ghd curve® creative curl wand is the perfect tool to take you from day to night by simply brushing it out even further for a night time look (see more examples here)

The ghd curve® wand tools take a little longer to set when wind the curl onto the barrel, leave for 8-10 seconds compared to the tools with the lever.

Leave the ends out and then straighten them with the ghd platinum for a more textured, unpolished, yet beachy look.

Play around with the fringe, you might like it parted in the middle or flipped side to side

Pop into a ghd salon and ask a stylist to try the ghd curve® tools on your hair to see which one best suits you.

ghd heat protect spray is soft and wont stiffen your hair, feel comfortable to spray each section knowing it enhances the final outcome.

If you are right handed, it is easier to use your left hand to hold the tool and your right hand to wrap the hair around the barrel

All ghd curve® tools retail at $230 and are available from ghd approved salons, Mecca Maxima stores and www.ghdhair.com/au. For stockists info call 1300 443 424
