“The Modern Hippie”
The Look: For her Resort 2010 Swim collection, Mara Hoffman drew inspiration from a spiritual exploration in the desert, which translated into a variety of unique silhouettes and colorful psychedelic prints, ranging from bold and bright to softer and more feminine
The ghd Way: Clean, bouncy waves for a modern take on the classic hippie coif. Lopez prepped the hair with ghd creation spray to protect models’ hair and provide a flexible hold for styling. He used a variation of ghd’s summer wave technique to create the clean, textured waves which was done by placing the ghd IV styler near the roots of hair and turning it 180 degrees upward and away from the scalp.
The ghd IV styler was slowing pulled down until it reached the midpoint between the roots and the ends, then flipped 180 degrees the opposite way and pulled all the way through the remaining half. Once the waves were created, Lopez misted ghd sea spray throughout to give the look definition and its overall beachy, matte texture.

“The Ethereal Goddess”
ghd Artistic Ambassador Andy Bodine shows you how to recreate Jessica Alba’s look using an array of ghd products.
Look 1: Sleek and Sassy: If you’re born with natural texture in your hair like Jessica, you’ll need to use an iron to get hair looking this sleek.
Start off with a lightweight product, like ghd thermal protector, which protects hair from the heat of your styling tools. The formula also controls static and brings out your hair’s natural shine. On hair with medium length, I use the ghd IV styler to straighten strands from root to tip. To prevent the style from looking too stiff and straight, slightly curl the ends inward. The ghd IV styler is great for this since the ceramic plates are beveled and float (meaning they have more give when you use it to curl, which prevent dents or lines in the hair). For Jessica’s fringe, I would use the ghd IV mini styler which comes with ½” plates that are great for using on shorter styles. After using the styler, apply just a small amount of ghd shining serum to smooth the cuticle and you’re ready to show off your sleek, sassy style.
