How to get Katy Perry's 50s vintage hair style using a GHD

Permalink 08/13/11 07:19, by admin, Categories: Uncategorized




Dave LaChappelle shot this great Ad campaign for GHD Hair Straightener/Curler starring Katy Perry. The idea is you can use the GHD for 40s and 50s vintage hair curling.

My personal experience with GHD, it is extremely difficult to get authentic vintage hair styles with this device. Because whilst the GHD is great for flat straight hair, its big diameter means your curls won’t be tight enough. So when you brush it’s more straight/wavy instead of the authentic pincurl set effect.

If you are after a modern styling tool for curling, it is much easier to use hotsticks or curling tongs.

I wonder if anybody has bought a GHD to try and get Katy’s 50s hairstyle?


These are GHD’s instructions for getting Katy’s 50s glamour hair:

1. Create a deep-side part using the ghd Tail Comb and take a horizontal section starting at the front of your head.

2. Place the ghd Gold Classic styler at the root of the hair and rotate it at 180 degrees, elevating upwards to create maximum lift. Glide the styler to the ends to fashion a curl.

3. For a stronger, longer lasting curl, roll each section back to the roots and secure with a bobby pin. Repeat until the entire head is curled.

4. Allow the hair to cool for 5-10 minutes. Release the bobby pins, allowing the hair to fall naturally and run your fingers through from root to ends. Spritz with hairspray for extra hold.

CNA TrainingI am really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

adminHi There I'm not an expert in the tech area therefore is not the best person to ask. my web developer did the theme for me. But from what I understand is it's good to minimise/delete any unnecessary clever features, for example if you have Flash it will affected the way the website is viewed on different platforms. You can't even view Flash websites on Iphones. Html should work well on most windows. Again this is just my opinion, I think it's best to speak with a web developer/tech person on this.

online cna certificationI was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could
a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
