For textured messy hair with attitude follow our step-by-step guide as seen on the models at the Lucy McIntosh New Zealand Fashion Week show:

1.    Apply ghd total volume foam to the ends of your towel dried hair and spray ghd root lift spray to your roots
2.    Using the ghd aura, blow dry the product into your hair
3.    Starting at the nape, randomly pick up large sections of your hair and run the ghd eclipse styler through your hair to create a ‘clumpy’ texture
4.    Work your way to the top of the head, and taking a side parting do the same through the front of the hair sweeping the hair across the face when using the styler, to help control the hair movement
5.    Blow dry your hair with quick blasts in different directions to add to the messy texture
6.    Part hair over one or both ears and secure with a bobby pin behind the ear if required
7.    Finish with hairspray

Severe hair partings are in and Shen models at New Zealand Fashion Week added a modern twist to the chic, classical look, here’s how you can get the look:

1.    Apply ghd straight and tame cream to your hair and blow dry using a ghd paddle brush
2.    Create a centre part and using the ghd eclipse straighten your hair section by section
3.    Pull hair back into a low ponytail at the nape and secure with a hair tie
4.    Apply ghd smooth and finish serum through the ponytail and twist your hair until it sits back on itself. Push the end of the pony back through the hair tie and let the end flick up creating a hanging bun
5.    Leave the ends of your hair slightly exposed and not twisted for a different, dry texture
6.    Spray hair with ghd final fix hairspray and ghd final shine spray for an extra smooth and shiny finish
