For classic style and volume, the ghd curve® classic curl iron has a 1" medium barrel with spring activated ergonomic lever to create consistent curls, even on shorter hair. The protective cool tip provides you with a safe place to hold the hair in place while you curl, and the built-in safety stand allows you to place the iron down securely during styling. Other handy features include a professional-length cord to allow for flexible styling, automatic sleep mode after 30 minutes without use and universal voltage, so you can use your iron anywhere in the world.Each ghd curve® tong contains the break-through ultra-zone technology that guarantees the right curling temperature of 365°F. This is maintained across the whole barrel thanks to the latest in advanced technology recognizing the section of hair and adapting to ensure the correct styling temperature at all times; delivering lasting curls that are formed fast and stay locked-in, while respecting the health of your hair.BEST FOR: Suitable for all hair types and lengths, including short hair.TO USE: For long-lasting, classic curls; section the hair into 1" wide and deep pieces. Open the clamp and flat wrap the hair around the barrel. Close the clamp to secure the end of the hair in place. Wait 5-8 seconds and then open the clamp to release. Alternatively, to create a luxe wave; section the hair as before but instead twist wrap the hair around the barrel. Hold the hair in place for 5-8 seconds (the clamp may not close completely due to the twisted section of hair being thicker) and then release.STYLE TIP: Use the ghd curl hold spray to prep hair before curling - this will protect your hair from heat styling, and ensure your curls are long-lasting. For a sleek, glamorous look; curl all sections of hair in the same direction. For a more volumised look; alternate from wrapping sections of hair under and over the barrel to create curls that bounce off each other. Use a ghd detangle comb to soften the hair or a ghd dressing brush to smooth your curls.
