#BackstageBeauty: How to get sleek straight locks spotted at Victoria Beckham SS17

Ever wanted to get the straight, shiny locks that you usually see on models in hair ads but found that you can never really ace it no matter how hard you try? Sleek hair is perhaps the easiest and most effortless way to ooze class, demonstrated at Victoria Beckham’s show during New York Fashion Week SS17. Ultra-groomed, straight hair was the focal point of the beauty look that resonated with the simple chic silhouettes from the collection.


“For me, polished, glossy hair is such a classic beauty look,” says Victoria Beckham. “It’s both modern and timeless – qualities that are reflected in my collections too.”

Internationally renowned hair stylist Guido Palau shows us how to score with pin-straight tresses using GHD’s award-winning heat-styling tools:

1. Apply a primer and heat protectant to clean, damp hair. According to Palau, a primer reduces the time taken to blow-dry your hair, and a heat protectant is essential for shielding your locks from the high heat.

2. Part the hair in the centre and blow dry using GHD Natural Bristle Radial Brush Size 2 and GHD Air Hairdryer for a smooth finish. 

3. Glide GHD Platinum Styler over the hair from root to tip to reduce flyaways and leave a glossy, ultra straight finish. “GHD Air Dryer and Platinum Styler are super quick and speed up the process of straightening hair. One pass of the Platinum Styler and hair is super straight and shiny.”


GHD Platinum Styler now comes in a limited edition Electric Pink colour in a roll bag (RM1,210). Available at Sephora stores nationwide.
