When I think of hair tools, my mind straight away thinks of the iconic brand ghd. I can bet that most of the time, yours will as well. In my opinion, this Limited Edition V Wonderland Styler* is the prettiest model I’ve seen. With a combination of green, blue and purple hues, the iridescent tool is definitely stunning to look at and to have on your dresser. In this gift set, you don’t just receive a styler, but you also get some extra goodies including: a bag that converts into a heatproof mat, 2 sectioning clips and a protective plate guard. All very handy indeed.
The thing I love most about this tool is that it can not only be used as a flat iron, but is fantastic at creating curls too. You can find so many easy party looks to recreate here on the ghd website. The stylers are designed with rounded plates to ensure sleek and smooth curls. Although it took me about 3 hours to learn exactly how to curl with a pair of straighteners, I really do love the end result as the curls are looser yet voluminous than I usually have! I thought I’d share with you how I did it…
1. Place a section of hair in the flat iron at the root of your hair.
2. Flip the remaining dangling section of hair over the other side of the styler, so it hangs over the back side.
3. Rotate the straightener 360 degrees until the hair wrapped around the styler is facing outwards again.
4. Gently pull the styler downwards until all the hair is released to create beautiful loose curls.
It really does take practice and patience, but once you get the hang of it you can curl your hair fairly quickly and with ease. The length of time you take to pull the styler down defines your curl; taking longer means the curl will be tighter. Despite being on the pricier side of the market at £135, ghd’s are known for being long lasting. Such a tool is bound to last you for years to come (taken from experience).
