Get the Look from GHD for Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2015: Kate Hudson! #BeautyBreakdown #Hair

I love getting hair breakdowns because it’s something you can practice doing. Plus I love Kate Hudson’s hair. Now if it were only MY hair, I would be happy (providing it came with all the help and products too!)

WHO: Kate Hudson



David Babaii, Brand Ambassador for ghd, North America


“I was inspired by her gorgeous and playful green dress. We wanted to create a relaxed, beachy wave to amp up the style.”


1) “To create this look, I first dried Kate’s hair using the ghd air™ hairdryer and a round brush.

2) I then parted the hair down the center and divided into three sections: two in the front and one in the back.

3)Starting with the section in the back, I took one inch pieces and wrapped the hair around the ghd curve™ creative curl wand.
I held each piece around the barrel for 10 seconds, then released the curl and stretched it out for 2-3 seconds until it cooled.

I continued all the way to the top alternating the size and direction of each curl. The tapered barrel creates perfect, beachy waves and with ghd’s patented tri-zone™ technology, I was able to quickly create long-lasting curls without much need for product.

4) To finish, I ran fingers through the hair to loosen the waves and lightly misted hair with a light hold hairspray.

Retailers: Sephora,

I love ghd hair tools. They are smart, easy to use and give you the finished hair style that really lasts!
