Although I’ve been a beauty blogger/addict for many years now, one of the cult products I have never owned is a pair of ghd straighteners. I do use my ghd blow dyer on a daily basis and despite it being a little heavy (maybe that’s why I have more defined biceps now days) I do love it and it has never failed me but I’m new to the straightener.
I was invited down to the ghd studios at their head office to talk about their new candy collection stylers, talk 2013 hair trends and eat sweets- how could I say no! Ghd is launching three new candy colour shades of stylers; mint, yellow and violet which we tried out at the event.
We were talked through three main hair trends; new grunge glamour, hello pretty and 60’s prom queen. Hello pretty goes with the current pastel trend we are seeing in fashion, pretty french braids, whimsical lilac hair and romantic fish tail plaits. New Grunge Glamour is laid back, care free hair- I think it evolved a little from ombre hair and I love it, although I do feel it works better on long hair. Probably my favourite is 60’s prom queen simply because I like big hair, it’s super chic and looks very smart!
Although the stylers are traditionally used to achieve straight, sleek hair I think we often forget that they can be used to add volume, curls and a litre texture as shown in the looks above. For the braid, first the grunge look was done on the hair as it made it easier to hold the braid in place. The 60’s prom look was done with some root work using the straighter before teasing, I’ve tried this and it actually works!
I was then lucky enough to take one of the new stylers home and I am so excited to share it with you in a future post. Hopefully I will share some hair looks with you all soon!
The candy collection is available now and retails for £110
