Many of this spring & summer's runway styles feature either a middle part or deep side part and are relatively straight - and straightforward to replicate, provided you have the right tools at your fingertips:
TOOL #1: The right brush. Smooth, sleek styles need a paddle or dressing brush, while wavy or curlier coiffures are easy to achieve with a ceramic radial brush to create lift at the root and curls galore.
TOOL #2: Good gadgetry. Ideally, your hairdryer should fit comfortably in your hand, be powerful and provide you with a lot of flexibility by having enough different heat settings. Whatever style you're going for, when you're done with the drying part, at the very end, finish with a good cold blast of air to help set the style and make it last. While ghd is known for their flat irons, they also make an excellent top shelf hairdryer, the ghd Air. Its user-friendly design is good for both right-handed folk as well as lefties, and it features advanced ionic technology. In English: as you dry your tresses, these negative ions are created which do the opposite of regular hairdryers and actually help repair your hair during drying. And if you style your 'do frequently, this is a huge bonus!
